HD graphic digital printing

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!

We're using a state of the art, Fuji UV Flat bed printer, a $170,000 machine that enables me to print any
image in photo real high resolution 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 . . . you're one of few in the
world with skis looking as good as these on your feet.

THE WHIPIT

I designed The Whipit to be 8mm narrower than "The Allplay" for enhanced edge-to-edge quickness on firm snow.
I also added Carbon fiber to it's construction for a game-changing light weight poppy feel on snow & in the air. You'll
be whipping around the most technical tricks with ease you never previously thought possible, feeling like there's nothing
on your feet. Spend the day carving top to bottom runs forwards or backwards or hot lap the park all year long, the
Whipit will literally read your mind taking your skiing further faster, with less effort than ever before. Yup! this is the funnest,
lightest, quickest, easiest, butteryest, most durable all-terrain freestyle ski you'll ever buy. But don't take our word
for it, read the reviews from others that own it! #Jwhipit

THE WHIPIT™ SHAPE

For "The Whipit" ski shape I used a sidecut with a huge variety of turn radius possibilities at every speed
with reliable comfort and control. The subtle 2mm of rocker provides added float in softer snow & slush and
makes for easy turn initiation when carving. The
subtle tip & tail taper creates a surfier feel in softer snow &
much easier catch-free butters 
while still maintaing plenty of tip initiation when carving.

THE WHIPIT™ SKI CONSTRUCTION

"The Whipit" shares the same construction as the other J skis, plus I added Carbon Fiber stringers for    
snappy  pop for big controlled ollies, nollies, responsive butters and reduced weight. As with all my skis, 
I spared  no expense, using absolutely the highest quality, best performing materials possible to maximize 
durability & performance. The Maple  wood core combined with the full height UHMW sidewalls provide the
most durable & powerful
construction in the industry  with added shock absorption.  The extra  thick hardened 
steel edge & high-speed ultra hard sintered base is the thickest, most durable available for maximum 
protection on rocks & rails, enabling 
multiple years of re-tunes for a long ski life.

 

FLEX PATTERN

Medium supportive flex underfoot to stomp landings & hold a solid edge all over the mountain. The symmetric tip and tail flex is rated #3, not too stiff, not too soft. Plenty of support to keep you on your feet yet enough flex for fun butters, big ollies.



 

 

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

You support your local farmer, local music, local restaurant, now you can support your local ski company. 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.
