"boutique" twin tips

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
There seems to be a few microbrewery style ski companies popping up, especially in the twin tip market. No doubt Armada/Line and 4FRNT all came through this way...One I haven't heard of, and am keen to try are the High Society twin (92mm under foot). Taking them out tomorrow in Aspen, was wondering if anyone had had any experience with this ski/the company...reliability is always in the back of your mind when you buy into one of these products.

cheers

Praxis is a good example of this as well.

I like'm. I want'm. The Bamboo core ski is something I'd like to ride. I think there is a ski from New Zealand (Kingwood?)that also has a Bamboo core ski.

I'm not that familiar with Kingswood, but tons of folks on TGR seem to have them. Igneous has a very diverse choice of topsheets and cores, they may have bamboo.

do you mean MOVEMENT skis?

http://www.movementskis.com/


went to the "momentskis.com" site and just get a blank page.



BTW, if you want to while away some time oogling over cool boutique skis, check out this site:

Moment skis are out of Reno I believe, and are different than Movement. They make a giant square tipped fattie that make Volkl Sanouks look like carving skis.

Aluflex in france has a bamboo core ski. They may be difficult to find in the US, though...

regarding Moment/Movement...my bad.

my computer at home is crapping out (totally needs memory and operating systems upgrade). I wasn't able to open the Moment site from there this morning.

Those skis look wicked with the sawed off tips and tails. Are they meant more as a BC set-up?

I'm kinda bummed...a large chunk of their site seems to be either "under construction" on the fritz or just not there. For example nothing happens when you click the "ABOUT" link. The skis look pretty sweet and this is the first I've heard of 'em (PMGear seems to grab all the kudos in terms of skis from Reno). I'm trying to figure out if the Moments are meant as predominantly park skis or what.

i think they're more all-mountain, their reno is kindof supposed to be a park/all-mountain thing but most of it is about big mountain riding. there was a huge thread about them a while back, which turned intoa huge debate about their factory (basically they made their skis in a factory that screwed pmgear off, but they DIDNT have anything to do with screwing them off). im eying the tahoes for myself...if only they got the goddam graphics up.

Tom...

There are a whole bunch of "microbrewery" ski designers and manufacturers out there....many with twin-tip models... The latest updates are at http://www.exoticskis.com. Many styles, and even custom manufactured skis (to your specs)...kinda cool. Everything from tiny garage-shops to big multinational factories making skis to spec for small designers....
