Bentley Motors has joined with Bomber Ski for a luxury line of skis — complete with 24-karat gold-plated inserts.
Working closely with Olympic ski legend and Bomber Ski co-owner Bode Miller, the design teams at Bentley and Bomber spent 18 months between New York and Italy. The result is a pair of luxurious skis designed in celebration of Bentley’s historic 100-year anniversary.
“On Bomber skis, one can actually feel the passion of the craftsmen that built them, an experience that no machine-made ski can reproduce,” Miller said in a press release. “I’m thrilled to see this partnership with Bentley Motors so that we can enhance that 360-degree experience to even more enthusiasts throughout the world.”
Arriving in the form of the Centenary Edtion 84 and the Black Diamond 84 skis, the former sees 24-karat, gold-plated diamond-shaped inserts, and patterns that mimic the motifs found on Bentley’s EXP 100 GT concept car. The Black Diamond 84 is similar to the Centenary Edtion minus the 24-karat gold diamonds; the gold material has been replaced by six 3D diamonds in a gloss black finish.
Bomber produced only 100 pairs of Centenary Edition ($3,750) and only 200 pairs of Black Diamond Edition ($2,750).
