In honor of Bentley’s 100th year, the Limited Edition Centenary Ski takes inspiration from the diamond motifs, textures and patterns found in the EXP 100 GT concept car launched in 2019. Limited to just 100 pairs, the Centenary Edition ski is adorned with 24-karat gold plated diamond-shape inserts, adding a magical sparkle on the slopes.
“Everything we design has purpose, so the 3D geometry on the surface of the ski not only creates a dramatic aesthetic but is concentrated around the areas where support and response are needed most by the skier. This creates a design execution that has never been seen before and an experience for the user that surpasses all expectations.”
-Chris Cooke, Lead Designer, Bentley Motors
Within the boutique Bomber factory in Biella, Italy, each pair of skis takes about 32 hours of handcraftsmanship to ensure the perfect execution. The ski is made from a sandwich construction with a core of wood and fibers, covered by two layers of Titanal. The top layer intricately blends from negative to relief to add further texture and interest which has pushed both teams to innovate with tooling, processes and materials to execute such a detailed design.
“On Bomber skis, one can actually feel the passion of the craftsmen that build them, an experience that no machine-made ski can reproduce. I’m thrilled to see this partnership with Bentley Motors so that we can enhance that 360-degree experience to even more enthusiasts throughout the world.”
