Non Ski Industry best bet to make ski gear you'd like to see

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
I thought there was a thread about this from last year but couldn't find it in a search.
Look around you and find something innovative in your day to day life and ask yourself............If they could make THAT, and it works so well, just how awesome would they do if they made ski gear(not just skis)?

LOL, funny, I jsut saw a thread like this asking about cars.

Apple is my first choice. Nike is one that has tried to buy ski companies, but never could. The new Palmer skis is making a ski a that seems to have Oakley all over it.

Carhart (sp) ski wear.

Caterpillar, big mountain skis.

MacPherson Strut, suspension assistance for the older skier.

Burton, kinder, less painful ski boots.

To get serious NIKE has the money, power, and talent to make a ski boot that could solve most of the problems that we have as skiers. I would love to see them put their staff into making a great ski boot.

Maybe Porsche could build skis.

Or better yet, Fischer could build carbon fiber car bodies for Porsche. (Yes, the car body for the fastest ever street Porsche was built by Fischer who also supplies Aerospace applications).

Uh oh - everything innovative in my day-to-day life is ski gear. Unless you count my R. L. Winston fly rod. Not exactly innovative - just really, really sweet.

Drop the "c" in Fischer and you have GM's legendary advertisement slogan.

There were actually a couple models of Porsche branded Volkls a few years ago. I think there was a P60, and a year or two after, they used the Superspeed.

Ya know, I'm not gonna knock those today. I might wind up needing them sooner than I think, and why should snowboarders have all the lift-line fun?

I just wish most manufactures would build replaceable bottoms for their boots in different degrees.

Who, in the Non ski Industry is most likely to do that?
Maybe Scissor lift?

Salomon had this with their SX line. I agree it is a great idea. I think they might have a patent on it. Daleboot might do a variation though.

It just so happens that I was doing some surfing to check out something I wanted to post in this thread, when I stumbled upon a Car Forum that had a thread similar to this and thought.......Hmmm, that would be a good EpicSki Gear Thread.
So........once again, Phil has caught me. This was not an original idea on my part.

After Phil nailed me on this I went back to see what kind of replies were on there.......I won't post Phils, but I'll give a hint.

I blow my knee out at Snowbird in 1977 was operated on and ended skiing in 1981. I went back to skiing in1990, but could ski one day and take two days off because of the swelling on my knee. At Alta in 1994 I met an agent for CADS, tried them and was able to ski 21 days in a row with no swelling or pain. Now you tell me if you would use them. I have been using them since and have skied up to 120 days in one year at Aspen.

I just poured myself a cup of coffee from a thermal Carafe' and I was thinking about how many of these I've had over the years, but this one(Thermos Brand, made in Germany) keeps the coffee hot longer than any others I've had. So why not a camelback that will keep a hot beverage hot?
That is something I'd like to have!

You're the one who usually knows exactly what he's talking about.
