I am not  a promoter and not associated with any ski company nor with anton's skis.

It just seems too weird, and too high from the ground to be actually usable.

I guess I am old school and assume you need to feel the snow. I can watch skiing on TV if I want to be more detached from the skiing surface.

   Of course 25 years ago I never thought I would ski on a ski shorter than 200 cms or 35 years ago know why people would want their feet tied to a single board. Still haven't figured that one out. (:

Seen it before, makes some sense from physics point of view, but no clue how it works and way too expensive to try.

You're a DIY guy.    All you need is carving skis,  cheapo high lift plates ( you can still find Tyrolia ultra-lift plates on ebay, complete with dragon extra long brakes, or you can make your own from hardwood like Spruce http://www.skiboardsonline.com/p/spruce_proprimeplus.html used to in their early days, or from square metal tubing (search on this forum for pics of HighwayStar with super tall tubing lifters on Stockli Stormriders) ) and 2 leaf springs per ski.

I never thought you had young eyes, but that's a bit far, well into reading glasses material there.

Lol, I'll just go fire up the CNC in the basement and pop out a pair. tongue.gif

Using a CNC for a hacksaw & drill job is so very Epicski.  tongue.gif

I'm waiting until I can 3D print my skis.

My skis already have an active suspension. They're called my legs.
