For those who don't know, we are a small ski company based out of Vermont.
We have spent the past five years researching durability problems found on both our own, and competitors skis. Our findings have lead us to these four technologies (among others):
Early End Edge - We found that edges blow out the sides of the ski near the tip and tail. We’ve cut our edges short to prevent this from happening.
Double Thick Edge - Edges crack directly underfoot from contact with man made objects. We’ve doubled the industry standard thickness for our edges to end this issue.
Double Thick Base - Bases can be forced to take on incredible impact when hitting stumps, rocks, or man made features. We’ve doubled the industry standard thickness for our base material to further absorb impacts like these, and prevent the interior of the ski from seeing damage.
Zero-Delam Tip - The layers of a ski can delaminate, or peel apart at the ends. We’ve removed the metal edge from the tip and tail and doubled the thickness of our base to create perfect seams.
Here you can see how early the edges end.
We are reaching out to get your feedback on what durability problems you currently face, and what you do or don't like about how your current skis approach durability.
