So they are Head skis with Audi emblems.    They do look cool I must say.

 

I find that when designer brands (Prada, LV, Gucci, Porsche, Ferrari, Lotus etc.) Make products outside of what they are known for, they get very little marketing, makes me wonder why they even bothered to spend the millions that it cost to design them in the first place.

Here is a little Armani to wear with the Audi

These are actually very nice skis for a good price. They look like the classic VIST carver - 116/66/101. If so, I have this ski in the VIST TEAM and Hart Phoenix twin.

Yeah, I know the post is ancient, but just stumbled upon it doing a forum search.

Anyway, I don't think the designers are spending any serious money on the branded skis.  It's basically a designer top sheet and logo over a successful high-end ski, and the whole point is to throw in a pair to close a sale on a $200K car.

 

And if some old geezer with a trophy girl friend has a pair of these on a chair lift, it's a good return on the advertisig budget.
