These are pretty stout with 2 layers of metal, but overly so - easy to ski with early rise (see below). Made in Austria. Similar to a Head Monster, but with early rise and a more modern design. They are a few year old models, but bought a few weeks ago new. Palmer was a little ahead of his time with the design. He is a snow board guy and brought some of his ideas to skis. Anyway, I just sold my Praxis fatties for the same reason I'm selling these; I travel a lot on business and can only bring one ski with me when I do, so a 100-ish mm waist is my choice for that. The 2 ski quiver is great good in theory, but not in practice for me anyway. Only skied on them 2 days... Asking $375 including shipping. Super great 50/50 ski for a great price.
PS, they are great looking skis too. Look like Ice on a hockey rinks (soft white) with lettering underneath the ice. Grey lettering. Clean but good looking. PM me for pictures.
Bindings are Corrupts, but made by look - exact replica of the PX Racing 15.
Palmer Skis: Palmer is known worldwide for producing the finest and most expensive snowboards in the world. They are also well known in Europe for producing the same level of skis. While not a well known ski company in the USA, the technical features and extensive R n' D has proven that the Palmer Skis really are some of the best in the world. Made in the Head factory in Austria.
Smart FLF Rocker: Smart FLF rocker with moving contact points. When the skier weights the ski, the tip and tails rise up to give the same effect of mini-rocker, or early rise skis. But when unweighted and starting a turn, the full edge length helps grip on firmer snow, offering greater stability. Check out our video tab for more information.

Klothoid Sidecut: This is a fancy term for a multi radius sidecut. What this means is there are different radii built into the sidecut of the ski that target different parts of the turn. A short radius near the tips helps with turn initiation, long radius underfoot for stability at speed in the middle of the turn, and a medium radius near the tail helps exit the turn and get into the next turn. What that means is turns are more fluid and easier.
