Goode has a new ski coming out.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Most know that Goode bought Volants ski presses when Volant closed doors last year. They have been playing with some designs. I am not sure of the sidecuts at this point, but will be available in a 155, 165,175. The ski is supposed to be a full pound lighter than anything out there (including those lightweight Atomics). Tenacious grip due to extremely still torsional flex. Price should be a realistic $699.00. I will keep you up with info as I get it. Rumour of 500 pair for this year and a full run next year.

It sure would be great if they were able to build a lighter version of the Chubb. I would be on that ski in a Heart beat

Goode was started in my hometown in Michigan. Some of my friends worked there laying carbon for various designs and the such. They have produced skis before, and they were light, but way to stiff to ski. They also made wakeboards (water skis too) for a bit, my friend helped out with the designs for a while, but didn't get along very well with the company, so he left. Goode can produce very light skis, but hopefully they will learn from Volant and let the off on the stiffness.

They did have a light fat ski a few years back. I skied their "shape" ski a few years ago, Excess was the model name I think. Noisiest ski I ever skied, the snow just reverberated through the ski.

Goode does make some of the best waterskis out there, and I like the poles too. I will be interested to see what this will be like.
