The Artwork

Ski The East x J Collab

If this graphic looks familiar, then you were a skier in the 90’s when the Salomon F9 hit the market blowing minds of everyone on the hill.

I still remember as a kid seeing this ski in my hands for the first time. As soon as I heard about it, I immediately drove to my local ski shop to check it out, my mind was blown! The ski looked soooo different from anything else on the market. At the time all other skis were sidewall, Salomon was the first to create a cap construction which they referred to as “Monocoque”, originally developed in the aerospace industry. The entire strength and energy of the ski came from the multi layered composite cap that draped down around the entire perimeter and down to the edge. Shortly after, all of the other ski and snowboard brands raced to figure out how to make build cap skis and boards.

Not only was the ski built different, but it also looked sooooo different with the ultra bright, electric blue and yellow graphics. I remember being at the bottom of the mogul field and seeing someone throw a spread eagle way up top and that insane multi color base just popped! You couldn’t miss it, anyone riding those skis were a rock star on the hill.

"Ski The East" and I schemed up the idea of building 69 pair of this graphic on "The Fastforward" ski to pay tribute to the F9 legend, and respect to the 90’s. The colors, placement of logos, everything about this graphic is paying homage to the original rebel, and everyone who shredded the original back in the day. You’ll have as much fun riding this graphic reincarnation, and blowing everyone's minds on the hill as as we all did decades ago.

We only made 69 pair… and have got a ton of old school fans so they're gonna sell out fast! I hand signed and numbered each, so you’ll be rockin a one of a kind shred stick like no one else on the hill!

The Fastforward

Calling all corduroy killers! This is the quickest and grippiest J ski ever made for ripping groomers and smashing bumps.

"The Fastforward” is designed to empower you to carve ice like a knife through hot butter, while maintaining the fun-loving, playful feel J skis are known for. The subtle tip-rocker keeps you floating with ease in fresh snow, yet when rolled over, 100% of the edge is engaged, including the tip for maximum grip. You get a predictable, smooth feel, that inspires confidence no matter the terrain; it’s as happy feasting on firm morning groomers as it is exploring the rest of the mountain. Unlike other skis in this category, “The Fastforward” doesn’t require you to put all your energy into it to get tons of power out. Thanks to its “Light Metal” Titanal laminate & Maple wood core construction, this ski does the work for you! You’ll gain power and precision with far less effort, so your legs don’t get burned out. You’ll be still going strong at the end of the day when they’re calling “last chair!’

    These are a barrel of monkeys! So fun and playful, I was laughing the whole way down. A viable option for skiers who just want to get on a great pair of skis and go.

    - SKI Magazine

    It's a maneuverable ski that really stands out in variable snow, and offers a rare combination of great suspension and a fairly easy-going ride that many people could appreciate.

    A wicked playful ski that you can trust-- stiff, with loads of pop.

The Finest Materials

Metal Construction

By selling these skis factory directly to you, we can invest more money into using the highest quality materials possible for a game-changing level of premium performance & durability.

MetalMetal

Titanal Metal Laminate

More power & stability where you need it!
Unique to this model ski, I'm using a titanal metal laminate on the top and bottom of the core. Instead of running it edge to edge, tip to tail, I've optimized the metal laminate’s geometry & location running only narrow strips down the center and ending it before the tips. This way there's enough metal to dramatically increase power, stability & dampening over the length of the ski in contact with the snow, however the tips are lighter for dramatically reduced swing weight to maintain a nimble, lively & fun feel. You'll notice the tail of the ski metal geometry has slightly less metal to allow for a more playful and forgiving exit out of your turns while the tip has more for powerful initiation and reduced chatter in the tips. You'll feel like you're on a GS race ski when you're carving it up, yet be shocked how fun & nimble it feels in tight trees, chutes and even the bumps. Enjoy!

Maple Wood Core

Highest quality wood for a lively energetic feel & long life
The factory is located in Quebec Canada, so we got Maple, eh! Maple is a very expensive high quality hard wood, thus the reason it’s used to build floors and furniture in your house that lasts a lifetime. Maple absorbs impact, and has a ton of energy for a very ski feel and long life. We run 4 – 20mm wide Maple laminates the entire length of the core, plus 100% under your foot for unprecedented energy, durability & binding screw retention. At the tips of my skis you’ll see more of the light colored Aspen which is incredibly lightweight with plenty strong when laminated alongside Maple for reduced swing weight at the tips.

Full Height Sidewalls

Maximum impact resistant & vibration dampening
We’re using super durable, high impact absorbing Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) polyethylene for our sidewalls. This is the same material we use on our ski's bases. It’s very impact resistant and since it’s full height, it also absorbs more vibration like using a longer spring in your car’s suspension. 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 full height plastic shock absorbing sidewalls over your edges or not. We’re cutting the sides of the sidewalls to a 10* angle, with a nice step at the bottom for easy tuning like race skis.

Extra Thick Edge

The thickest, most durable edge in the industry
We use the thickest hardened steel edges in the industry 2.2mm 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.

High Performance Base

The fastest, thickest, most durable base material
I don’t match my clothes, but I always match my base & edge. We use the thickest edge so I also use the thickest base in the industry 1.8mm. I use sintered Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) Polyethylene, the highest quality base material available. It absorbs wax better, slides faster, and is more durable than any other base material. Basically it’s super hard & fast, like your _______ likes it.

Quasitropic Fiberglass

Fibers run in 4 directions to maximize energy & strength
Fiberglass works like a guitar string, when it is flexed it wants to spring back, that’s the energy or pop you feel in a ski. However this energy can only be applied in the direction the actual fiberglass is run. This means the more directions of fiberglass, the more energy, pop & responsiveness. Industry standard “Triaxial” fiberglass runs in only three directions, we use a Quasi Isotropic fiberglass configuration, same as the aerospace industry to maximize energy & strength in as many directions as possible, 4 different axis 0, 90, +45, -45. It costs more, but it’s worth the performance.
