Just as the wood they are made from, every OPERA ski is unique.
The finishes shown below are illustrative and will vary in grain and shade, depending on the veneer used.
Abonos™ fossil wood
Abonos™ is a fossil oak sourced from rivers of the Sava area, at the northwestern border of the Balkan Peninsula. Its preservation process is special because, although it is obtained from underwater storage, it maintain all its original properties, and at the same time it features an increased hardness.
It can be defined as a “sub-fossil”: it has been exposed to a prolonged storage under low oxygen levels, starting a genuine fossilization that remained incomplete.
The most ancient trunks can be older than 8000 years, with colors that vary from golden to black, but with ever-changing shades. Each trunk is then, not only a raw material, but also a piece of history…
