At earlybird, all skis are built with bio based and recycled materials. We use sustainably sourced wood for the core, sidewall and wooden topsheets, biobased PA topsheets, bio based and recyclable resin and all natural ski wax. Earlybird skis are delaminatable and recyclable at the end of the lifetime. We are proud to produce the world`s most sustainable eco freeride skis!
ISPO GOLD AWARD - Jury Statement
"Earlybird ECOTECH is a game changer for the whole skiing industry. The ski's materials can be completely separated at the end of its lifetime: It is the world’s first circular economy ski. It also comes with sustainable materials and is produced 100% carbon neutral. We believe, that earlybird skis not only sets an example, but even provides a vision for the whole industry."

Bio based topsheet
Our topsheet is either made from wood or natural castor beans. The latter is super light and scratch resistant.
Bio based recyclable epoxy resin
The resin we use at earlybird skis is a revolution to the ski industry as it allows us to disassemble and recycle all materials.
The best ski edges are made in Austria from recycled steel. The ski base is a ptex race base made from recycled materials.
All wood in earlybird skis is sustainably sourced according to FSC-standards.
earlybird skis uses renewable energy to produce our skis and to run our company.
The ski wax we use at earlybird skis is bio based and free of fluor or other toxic ingredients.
The overall carbon footprint of earlybird skis is the lowest in the ski industry and is compensated with myclimate - our skis are 100% climate neutral.
The layup of earlybird skis is fully delaminateable, all materials can therefore be recycled separately.
