Built for ultimate, fast and light travel in the mountains, the S-LAB Minim ski is a minimalist ski developed by Kilian Jornet.

A limited run of 100 pairs will be produced exclusively at the Annecy Design Center.

The goal was simple - create a ski to assist Kilian Jornet in his fastest known time attempts and ski mountaineering competitions around the world. Building on our expertise in mountaineering, freeskiing and trail running, we collaborated with Jornet to design the ultimate ski for fast and light travel in the mountains.

In true S-LAB fashion, Jornet worked with ski developer, Axel Phelipon, every step of the way. From initial sketches and construction conversations to the first skis off the presses, the development of the S-LAB Minim ski is a story of teamwork.

IT STARTS WITH THE CORE.

The S-LAB Minim features a super light, full Karuba Woodcore with Koroyd tip inserts creating an ideal lightweight construction.

Koroyd was inserted into the tips of the skis to increase dampening and shock resistance while also contributing to the Minim’s ideal lightweight construction.
A layer of CFX Superfiber, a carbon and flax weave, was added to increase power and stability while keeping the weight to a minimum.
Durability, power transfer and edge grip were increased by adding carbon reinforcement to the binding zone.
A carbon reinforced binding zone cuts weight while increasing strength and durability during high torque situations.
Length: 160 cm
Weight: 720 grams / ski
Waist Width: 68.5
Dimensions: 97/68.5/83
Radius: 21

WELL KNOWN AS ONE OF THE TOP MOUNTAIN ATHLETES IN THE WORLD, JORNET WAS INVOLVED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE S-LAB MINIM SKI FROM DAY ONE.

WHAT DID KILIAN NEED IN A SKI?

Jornet was looking for one pair of skis that paired perfectly with his style of light and fast mountain travel. He needed a ski that was as light as possible for uphill travel but stable and strong enough to perform while skiing down. He needed one that gripped steep terrain for high mountain ascents. And he needed a ski that met the 160 cm length requirements for mountaineering competitions.

HOW DID AXEL DELIVER?

Phelipon translated Jornet’s needs into ski form. He constructed a 160 cm length ski around a lightweight, full-length Karuba woodcore. He increased the waist width to 68.5 mm, extended the radius and crafted a more straightforward sidecut to offer enhanced grip and performance in steep terrain. Finally, he added full length layers of carbon and flax plus reinforced binding zones to strengthen the ski and increase binding retention.
