MD: Micro-mechanical ski damper

Micro-mechanical Damper

Integrated Vibration Damper

M.D. technology banner

Sandwich Tech's Micro-mechanical Damper reduces specific modes of ski vibration that affect edge hold without losing the higher frequency, lively feedback.


  • Combines both micro-mechanical and constrained layer damping mechanisms
  • Directional loss factors for a damping effect that is focused on specific vibration modes
  • Isolated modes of vibration prevents overdamping higher frequencies that provide lively feedback
  • Embedded into the ski for durability and consistency

Understanding the vibrations of a ski starts with understanding the effects of amplitude, frequency, and decay. Often misunderstood - only decay is a true damping effect. Equally as important is understanding that damping certain frequencies improves edge-hold, but other frequencies provide lively feedback that you do not want to lose. To learn more about these effects, check out our article on Vibration Damping and Skis.
