Gotta admit. Most skis look, well not so great. But we buy them cuz they ski well. I mean who designs those top sheets? Gads. I can tolerate my Nodica AB's topsheet cuz they ski so well. My wife hated how her last pair of Metron's looked, but she lived with them becuase they performed well.
Now oddly we both got new skis this season and not only do they ski well, but we actually LIKE the graphics! How often does that happen? I mean really?
Mine: Classy and understated in guy sorta way. They look solid and ski solid.
Her's. Pretty and tasteful. She loves the way they look and loves the way they ski.
So, when was the last time you bought a ski that you liked and looked good? My guess is not likely, but possible. Mostly we tolerate a topsheet design in the light of a well performing ski. 'Tis a rare bird that skis as well as it looks.
