Vinny Gagnier x J Collab

200 Made


Released December 6, 2023

For decades the Gagnier family has blown minds around the world, inventing and stomping the hell out of previously unimaginable tricks. You’ve probably seen Vinny’s insane looking “Venom” grab or “Screamin Seamens” (cross your legs in the air) that he then takes to an impossible level, landing on his feet… with his legs still crossed! He invented the “bringback” where he literally stops mid rotation, and comes back as if you’re watching a video in reverse.

Also known as “Vinny Cash”, when he’s not traveling the world in search of X Games medals or bigger sends, he’s at his home mountain, Mont-Sainte-Anne Quebec, Canada sending positive vibez with the local community and friends. Vinny continues the family tradition of inspiring generations of skiers to find new ways to have way more fun on the hill!

Vinny has been a fan of anime since he was a kid, so when it came time to scheme up a graphic he went all in collaborating with legendary artist, Tolgart, to create this epic battle scene. This graphic is a sneak peek into Vinny’s anime alter ego - ready to conquer any force that comes his way on the mountain.

Whether you’re on a mission to collect X Games medals or just throwing down with friends at your local hill, these skis will give you superpowers to win any battle. I’m building only 200 pair of this new Limited Edition graphic on "The Joyride" ski and hand signing and numbering each pair so own a one-of-a-kind ski.

    Super fun ski. Really light swingweight so I found them easy to bring around. A very joyful ride.

    - Newschoolers

    Buttery, yet trustworthy, with a pension for carving firm snow. Would 'swipe right' on these.

    Learned some butter tricks on these skis this week. They felt so fun!

The Finest Materials

Carbon Fiber Construction

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

Carbon FiberCarbon Fiber

Carbon Fiber

Lighter with more energy & pop than fiberglass
Just like fiberglass carbon needs to be fully stretched like a guitar string to give you the most pop. Unlike other brands of skis with wavy black carbon, not stretched, thus you’re not getting the energy out of it, we use pre-cured, pre-stretched carbon fiber laminates. This means the carbon is pre-stretched & cured under perfect conditions at the carbon fiber production facility 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 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.
