Approach to Manufacturing
It has been through various processes for FIELD EARTH DESIGN to produce the first 3D form using the materials for current skies and snowboards. It took seven years to complete the actual model since the year of 2000 when the first imaging model has produced.
Among snow gear such as skies and snowboards by that time, there were only 2-dimensional models or only a 3-dimensional shape that was formed by a hard protrusion in the center of the sole. At that time, any factories considered that it was impossible to create a smooth curve of the whole by using material whose degree of shrinkage was different, and still, it is the product that a lot of factories cannot attempt to produce today. We changed a conventional factory and went through much development, yet even a current factory initially had said that it was impossible. Therefore, manufacturing began from the prototype that was far apart from the 3D form. We piles a lot of time to tell what FIELD EARTH DESIGN would like to create.
The 3D model represents the essence of manufacturing which were produced by both the imagination of FIELD EARTH DESIGN and the development capacity of the factory. Both who create an imagination concretely and who develop by improving technology based on the imagined object were combined with and then FIELD EARTH’s 3D model was born as a real. The soul of manufacturing that was cultivated in the 3D form is reflected in the variety of products and always keeps challenging the new development.
The 3D form that was produced through a lot of time is adopted in various brands made in the same factory today.
The 4D design has been designed to add force by stepping in the forward inclined posture on the backward binding position which floats entirely due to the tail portion curved in exact reverse to the nose 3D portion. Therefore, it enables to control the flow of snow surface more actively, and it provides more stable riding with higher speed in various fields not only in compacted snow or powder snow. Also, it ensures more accurate edge operation.
Due to the detailed design, the 3D Design produces speedy turns and controllability by making the flow of snow surface smoother as possible. In addition, capturing any snow surface in three dimensions, it enables to produce a great feeling in any environment regardless of the quality of snow either powder snow or compacted snow.
S-spec 2D DESIGN
S-spec 2D design is the two-dimensional form which shifted from 2D sole and which is controlled by the detailed design. It provides a feeling of regular edge contact, yet it can be controlled by like 3D’s smooth controllability. Because of this, it is a special form which controllability is smoother than the ordinal 2D. S-spec 2D is designed as an optimal form to suite each model.
When thinking about riding gear, the most appropriate form is the asymmetry. From this idea, the Asymmetry Design of FIELD EARTH DESIGN was born.
When thinking about the structure of the human, there is the twist of the body towards traveling direction in the case of SNOWBOARDS and also in the case of SKIS, there is inside and outside towards the central position of the body like shoes. According to this thought, it is designed to allow people to control smoother and to slide more naturally.
