Olly Founder, Chief design engineer and an avid mono skier!

Hello! I became seriously unwell during 2008 whilst on a placement year working for Gillette Razor Co. I studied product design engineering and over the course of my education  I have won several major design awards, the highlights being Young Engineers regional, A-level national award and the Gillette Innovation award.  

I have aways had a love of sliding on the snow and enjoyed both ski and board, I managed to fulfil a dream of becoming a snowboard instructor and I was working hard to try and get into the ski industry as a design engineer before illness struck. Like many, I rediscovered the slopes through adaptive skiing in 2017 and instantly felt there is great scope for making great adaptive ski products!

We like to build and we like adventure, simple. Here in the workshop,  high quality engineering is absolutely our core. We have made use of lightweight high strength materials through unique manufacturing processes. Across all our intended products, from clothing to ski hardware, we experiment with different materials and designs to reach a point where we are happy to build, construct and test. Our skis and equipment will have multiple features and aim to cater for people with a range of disabilities and skill levels, with user focused design as our DNA. As disabled skiers ourselves, we  want maximum quality, maximum the adaptive ski experience and maximum fun!   That’s what it’s all about right?

 

We hope you can join us for the ride, getting out on the snow! ❄️
