Ski specs in table format - Updating for 2015

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So I have been working on updating the skis category for 2015. Some of the companies hadn't updated their sites yet so I have to go back and finish. The table-format gives you a pretty easy way to filter, sort, and compare skis. You can quickly access the manufacturer's website via the Mfr Link button and quickly compare prices from a bunch of retailers via the "Shop" link at left (disclosure: affiliate links).
The site is far from perfect/complete, but I have been putting in a bunch of time so figured I'd share. Initial page load performance has been an issue because there is so much data. But once the page is loaded, all the filtering/sorting is done in the browser/client side.
I decided to keep 2014 skis (only different model names) active (at the cost of performance) for comparison and shopping. You can filter them out via the Production Years column. I mainly focused on freeride, backcountry, and freestyle skis (for lack of better terms) but other models and brands can be added.
I would've liked to add surface area, flex, rocker height, edge specs, etc. but the data just wasn't standardized or complete enough. The weights are from the mfr, which is lame, but I'll start measuring and updating as I can. I know I've made mistakes entering in specs, categorizing, etc. Let me tell you, that is some monotonous shit. So if you feel so inclined let me know of mistakes you see or changes you think should be made. Comments can be left on the product detail pages themselves. Thanks for checkin.

Just finished updating Armada, Dynafit, Faction, Fischer, Icelantic, and Kastle. It looks like Surface just updated their site so I'll do them today. There's still a bunch of missing and ambiguous data so I'll be contacting manufacturers to try and clear things up. I'll also start replacing mfr-given weights with actual-measured weights.

I talked to Dan from Armada and he gave me the measured weights of all the 2015 Armada skis. Still waiting to hear back from Atomic. http://www.gearchive.com/gear/snow-sports/skiing/skis
