THE MISSION OF KASTELAAR
Kastelaar wants to create a lifestyle that combines tradition, innovation and ecology in sporting goods, sports, leisure and fashion through its products designed to offer emotions and performances.
This is the source of inspiration for all that Kastelaar designs and creates.
Kastelaar was founded by people who have passion for skiing, the mountain free time, taste good and have in them the desire to challenge.
All of which now they find themselves perfectly embodied in Kastelaar products, even in the summer collection. We want to go beyond the present from tradition.
This vision translates into a broader mission that focuses on research and development of products with the aim to be the most efficient, beautiful and cutting edge of the planet.
WHAT DOES Kastelaar
Kastelaar is the family name of the grandfather of one of the two founders: Angelo Carli Kastelar. Grandfather often complained that having had three daughters the Kastelar probably would have died. The nephew Alberto, remembering that he thought of using it for the name of the company and give new life to Kastelar and we added an A, the initial of his name and because it sounded better: -) ...
WHEN AND 'WAS FOUNDED
Kastelaar was established in 2005 as a challenge that until then seemed impossible to achieve. Started as a joke by Alberto Brazzale was also followed later by his childhood Giuseppe Rumor (now no longer in company): to create the solid wood skis next-generation, cutting edge, they had performances at least equal to the best skiing the world and they were the most environmentally friendly on the market.
Ski designed for true fans of skiing, mountain lovers, sensitive to the tradition, to nature, but also to innovations.
There is an interesting background in 1993: that date is a first visionary prototype of wooden snowboards and carbon built by Alberto. While 1936 is the construction of ski by the grandfather Angelo Carli Kastelaar. Alberto has always been keen to create objects in any field and with different materials. Alberto has also a doctorate in business administration at the university Ca 'Foscari in Venice
SKI KASTELAAR ARE SWISS?
No, they are designed and manufactured in Vicenza, in the Veneto (Italy)
We also made a shield as a reminder guarantee of quality, commitment, professionalism, creativity.
This brand, which we did realize metal, enamel large fire and made plating palladium, noble and expensive metal such as gold, (the memory of the most famous Vicenza, the famous architect Andrea Palladio) want to remember our origins:
the coat of arms of the city of Vicenza (the white cross on a red background) surmounted by the Italian flag in the center, mirrored (a symbol of the two souls that make up the spirit Kastelaar, tradition and innovation) the K Kastelaar.
WHERE IS Kastelaar?
Kastelaar is located in Vicenza, in the Veneto, Vicenza at the foot of the Alps in an area that has always loved, researches and develops high-tech and high quality products for sport, leisure, jewelery, watchmaking, leather and more generally for the fashion.
This land also boasts a long tradition in skiing, mountaineering, the passion for the mountains. It was a Vicenza, Francesco Caldogno, after the middle of 1500, who was the first, with his “Relazione dell'Alpi Vicentine”, he described the mountain beyond the pure resources to be exploited, or as a "place of enrichment for the spirit." in Vicenza was born, therefore, the concept of mountaineering: that is the go to the mountains for the sheer fun of getting there.
An area so that it is always linked to the mountains and skiing: in addition to being a land of champions, here was born one of the most important innovations in terms of safety, ski, ski stopper ... here are companies produce sticks and attacks, clothing, helmets, caps and recently the first airbag backpack to use ski ... and then, just a few kilometers away, there is the world center of ski boots and hiking shoes and sports.
WHAT DO WE DO
Kastelaar creates and manufactures solid wood skis most technologically advanced in the world, but also other innovative and environmentally friendly products from other sports: tennis rackets, golf clubs, bicycles and more. The choice of wood is not only a way to relive the excitement of skiing or other products of the past, but to unite all the recognized quality of the wood materials and aerospace technologies that allow today to finally create wooden objects and other ecological materials with superior performance, durable and less polluting.
FROM TRADITION TO INNOVATION

Has introduced a new addition to the first marketing concept in skiing and sports in general that binds to this consumer product, the concept of the value of life in the time with the slogan "the Kastelaar skis do not change, they collect"
The combination of wood with materials and aerospace technology and the study of more innovative forms of skiing pioneer and allows us to be able to boast of a collection of fantastic skiing for aesthetics, forefront performances and respect for nature.
WE ARE THE ONLY IN THE WORLD TO MAKE CROSS SOLID ONE PIECE A COMBINED TECHNOLOGIES aerospace?
Yes. Kastelaar is the only company in the world to have married the tradition of solid wood and in one piece with the technologies and the most advanced materials ... We are the pioneers of this technology solution that since 2005 we have continuously developed over this years. This solution has undoubted advantages in terms of reduction of vibrations (resulting qualtà of the ski and of its performance), durability of the mechanical characteristics of the ski (in excess of each material and the bottom of little carbon but only over 45 million cycles fatigue, or by far greater than the duration of a ski), with respect to the environment.

Many ski manufacturers claim to use the wood in the ski as well as other composite materials such as carbon fiber and glass. In fact some people use wood only as superficial decoration of the thickness of one millimeter. Others use it as a filler inside and damping function. but these skis are composed of laminates of already dried fibers which are then hot bonded at 120 ° degrees and with a very short time. This means changing the physical structure of the wood which occurs already at 80 degrees. Our bonding process occurs with cold techniques or in any case at temperatures below 60 degrees and in wet on wet. This means creating an adhesive polymer structure is not two-dimensional as in all the skis on the market, but in three dimensions, very complex and ramified. This creates a true monolithic structure of unsurpassable mechanical characteristics.
WHY 'WE DO OUR SKI SOLID WOOD ONE PIECE?
Because today thanks to recent new adhesives and new wood coatings combined with these very interesting features and assumes that project it into the future. A wooden structure, as designed, have technical and physical characteristics unimaginable just a few years ago.
