The sickest race ski ever...
- magnesium sidewalls
- KERS chip for power-boosted turns
- Hole in shovel
- Speedwall sidewalls
- a touch of race rocker
- double deck
How good would this race ski be?
the whole is more than the sum of its parts. hard to say what package of features would pull it off. have to think existing race skis are as good as anything we could dream up. and a lot of the construction details that give a ski it's unique feel are pretty subtle.
Only as good as the crappy boots that are on one's feet.
I recall being in the shop one day and after a big race, the there were quite a few parents come in and asking (regarding wax) "What was on [Racer's Name Here] skis????" we simply replied "[Racer's Name Here]". At a certain point it is the interface between the boots and the helmet, when it gets past that, it is usually [Pick a country] Ski Team. Someone will let you know when it gets down to these details.
