WATCH THE VIDEO THAT INSPIRED THE SKI

Steve Stepp is a genius.

There’s a reason Steve Stepp is the most admired man in skiing. To be blunt, he’s quite simply . . . “Figured it out”. What he’s figured out, we don’t know, but watch his TROLLIN' webisode and you'll understand the inspiration behind his new ski collaboration with me.

Steve grew up skiing the ice coast at Roundtop in Central PA & later went to college in Utah where he still today skis with his 4bi9 crew putting out mind blowing park edits & movies. He loves riding park but still wanted a ski that would rip the whole mountain all day long.

I designed the 90 shape for superior quickness all over the hill that also is an advantage in the park. When laying down a turn, this ski literally reads your mind, turning on a dime with a light, energetic & intuitive feel. The sidecut holds a solid carve wether carving off the lip of a jump or just ripping groomers in & out of the trees. I put just enough rocker in the tip & tail (2mm) to easily float on slushy in-runs & fresh snow, as well eliminated the risk of catching tips on high speed butters. The Rocker+Tip shape is comprised of 4 different size radii blended into one for a seamless tip profile that transitions from camber, to rocker, to tip without any kinks for a first-of-it’s-kind smooth & natural feel.

FLEX PATTERN

Medium supportive flex underfoot so you & Steve are guaranteed to stomp landings & hold a solid edge all over the hill. The symmetric tip and tail flex is rated #3 with a ton of pop thanks to the carbon fiber running tip to tail. You'll easily be able to get out over the tips for butters but with plenty of support to keep you on your feet & hold a strong edge all over the mountain.

HIGH DEFINITION GRAPHICS

You already know I put a lot of value in graphics!
Ski & snowboard companies use the traditional, age old process of silk screening which is very labor intensive, requires high volumes & has a very low resolution image quality, you’ve seen the dots!

This fall our ski factory has purchased a state of the art, Fuji UV Flat bed printer. This is a $170,000 machine that enables me to print any image in photo real high resolution quality from my computer directly to the plastic top & base like you would at home on your inkjet printer. The resolution is unbelievable photo real and we can print on-on-the-fly as many or as few quantities as we want, with no additional costs. The result . . . look at our ski’s graphics.

PARABOLIC 4 RADIUS ROCKER

Rocker is traditionally referenced as the area of the ski between last point of camber in contact with the snow until the traditional starting point of the tip. Unlike most rocker geometries, we’re no longer thinking of them as separate entities. Instead we’re actually blending the rocker & tip shapes into one-and-the same.  

We’ve designed our Rocker Tips by blending 4 different radii into one smooth parabolic curve from the last point the camber to the very tip, just like a surfboard. The result is a much, much, much smoother profile tip shape that has no abrupt kinks, flat spots or awkward changes. Your tips will rise up out of the snow with less effort and you’ll lay down carves that utilize much more of your full edge length always feeling intuitive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PRE-CURED CARBON FIBER

Carbon fiber is lighter than fiberglass & has more energy. However, like fiberglass carbon needs to be fully stretched like a guitar string or bow to give you the most pop. Unfortunately when you see skis with wavy black carbon, it’s not stretched, thus you’re not getting the energy out of it you’re paying for.

We use pre-cured, pre-stretched carbon fiber laminates. This means the carbon is stretched and epoxied to 9oz fiberglass at the carbon fiber factory under perfect conditions prior to us receiving it. This pre-cured carbon laminate is twice the cost but also gives you many more times the performance. You’ll feel it! 

 

 

 

MAPLE & ASPEN CORE

Maple eh! the factory is in Quebec, I live in Vermont. We got maple!
MAPLE is a very expensive high quality, hard wood, thus the reason it’s used to build floors and furniture to last a lifetime. When used as a ski core, it absorbs impact, has a ton of energy, keeps your binding screws in, and most importantly, maple syrup tastes great.

We run 4 – 20mm wide Maple laminates the entire length of the core. Under your foot the core is comprised of approximately 80% Maple & 20% Aspen with solid Maple over the edges for unpresidented power & durability.

ASPEN is incredibly lightweight and provides plenty of strength when laminated alongside Maple. At the tips of my skis you’ll see more of the light colored Aspen, 4 – 20mm wide Aspen laminates covering approximately 70% of the surface area for for dramatically reduced swing weight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

FULL HEIGHT SIDEWALLS

We’re using good ol’ durable, fast, impact absorbing Ultra High Molecular Weight base material for our sidewalls. For the same reason it's used on your ski's bases, UHMW is great at absorbing vibrations & resisting impact. Take a metal pipe and hit it against a rock, then do the same with a piece of plastic. The metal vibrates through to your bones & the plastic absorbs the vibration for you. That’s the difference of having plastic shock absorbing sidewalls over your edges. We’re cutting the sidewalls to a 10* angle, with a nice step at the bottom for a nice long tuning life.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

THICKEST EDGE

We are officially using the thickest edges in the industry 2.5mm x 2.5mm. More metal = more durable. Whether you’re accidentally hitting a rock or purposely sliding a rail, you’re edges will live a much longer life. You’ll also be able to re-tune many more times or file them round to slide rails longer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THICKEST BASE

I don’t match my clothes but I always match my base & edge. We use the thickest base in the industry 1.8mm. It’s a sintered Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene, basically it’s super hard & fast, just like your _______ likes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RUBBER DAMPENING

Think of a ski like a phone book, every page = layer of material in the ski. Then bend your phonebook you’ll see every page slide against each other, this is “shear”. This shear force trys to separate, thus delaminate all the layers in your ski every time it’s flexed. 

I won’t build a ski without running a layer of thin rubber around the full perimeter of the ski over the entire edge, plus the full width of the tip and tail. The rubber acts as an insulator so that the edge and other materials can slide against each other when flexing without delaminating to dramatically improve durability.

 

 

 

 

 

 

QUASI ISOTROPIC FIBERGLASS

Fiberglass works like a guitar string, when it is flexed it wants to flex back, that’s the energy or pop you feel in a ski. However this energy can only be applied in the direction of the actual fiberglass length. This means the more directions of fiberglass, the more energy, pop & responsiveness. (forward, side to side, torsionally, etc.)

Industry standard “Triaxial” fiberglass runs in only three directions: 0, 45, -45. We use a Quasi Isotropic fiberglass configuration, same as the aerospace industry to maximize energy & strength in as many directions as possible. Our fiber is running on 4 different axis 0, 90, +45, -45, again more cost, but worth the performance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LOVE THESE SKIS OR YOUR MONEY BACK!

I personally guarantee these are the best skis & you'll love them. If for any reason within your first 3 days on the hill you don't love them, you can literally send them back, & I'll refund your total product & shipping costs, no questions asked! If you don't like em', send them back & we'll ride them! 

 

 

MORE FOR YOUR MONEY!

It's 2013! You buy your clothes, your electronics, even your furniture directly from the company that makes it, why not your skis? Traditional ski companies sell skis to a middle-man (ski shops) who then mark up the price & sell them to you. I have nothing against ski shops, we're just doing things differently here. We're cutting out the middle-man & investing the money back into higher quality, higher performing product and selling it directly to you so you get the best skis possible at near wholesale prices.



 

 

 

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FACTORY

We design our skis in Vermont & build them in Quebec, North America is a place where skiing is part of life. During the week we turn wood & epoxy into skis, on the weekends we ride them. As our own best customer, performance & durability is our #1 priority, this is why we confidently back all our skis with a 100% Money Back Guarantee.
