Foil Skis are the truest expression of lifelong desire to create authentic “High Performance Art”
Purpleheart is an extremely dense and water-resistant wood. It is ranked one of the hardest and stiffest of the woods in the World. It is so durable that it can be used in applications that require toughness. This spectacular ski has been developed especially for Jackie Chan and has been precisely tuned to Jackie’s physical abilities and skiing preferences, that also features a topsheet in Purple Heart wood as selected by Jackie, who has a personal collection of Purple Heart wood in his museum where he preserves endangered and rare species from around the globe.
Purpleheart trees are prized for their beautiful heartwood which, when cut, quickly turns from a light brown to a rich purple color. Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light darkens the wood to a brown color with a slight hue of the original purple. The dry wood is very hard and dense perfect for the flex of the Ski.

Simply stated, the Foil travel bag is one-of-a-kind. Custom designed by Foil and made from the finest, pure aniline, top grain leather, it is stately, elegant and practical. Each bag comes with a certification from the “Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana” (Vegetable-tanned leather of Tuscany) which guarantees the authenticity, natural tanning method and premium quality of the leather.

The bags are crafted in 3 sizes (depending upon ski lengths) and come with a full-length heavy duty zipper, carrying handle, front pull handle and discreet wheels.
