Sam Zahner x J Collab
Sam Zahner has made a name for himself as one of today's rowdiest street skiers, so it’s always good times hearing what this mad man’s vision is for his next ski graphic. He must be getting tired of digging snow and driving his beat up van because this time he requested a graphic with an army of zombie diggers at his spots, and insisted on colors inspired by the legendary “Grave Digger” monster truck.
We immediately knew the best artist for this diabolical scene would be our friend Matt Stikker, the creator of last year’s epic “Morning Sickness” graphic. Matt and Sam quickly went to work dialing in this apocalyptic urban ski scene until the army of zombie spot diggers came to life jumping off the ski trying to eat Sam!
This is the 3rd and final graphic in Sam’s badass series of Limited Edition skis we're releasing together. It’s what ski graphic legends are made of and will quickly sell out and be sought after for years to come. I’m only building 450 pair on The Allplay ski and hand-signing and numbering each pair. Keep in mind, this is your last chance to rally your own army of zombie diggers before the apocalypse hits!

The Allplay v1™
Versatile, best of all worlds, equal park & all mountain performance
This is our original Allplay shape that started it all and reigned as the #1 selling ski for our first 10 years! This original shape is surfier than our new version, sought after by skiers looking for an extra playful and buttery, forgiving and easy feel. Regardless of the terrain, these light and nimble skis are no work… ALL PLAY!
The "Allplay" has a versatile 98mm width and innovative shape and flex provide for the best of all worlds. Reliable precision under foot for ripping all-mtn, wide enough to easily float boot deep freshies in the trees, and a light, playful, buttery feel for throwing tricks in the park & all over the hill. Its unique, forgiving flex is evenly distributed throughout the entire length of the ski, which enables it to easily conform to all transitions and terrain for added confidence in bumps and throwing tricks off every feature you come across. I designed the tips with a very gentle rocker and early tapper shape for a catch-free, effortless, surfy feel. You’ll be able to quickly pivot in tight zones and never have to worry about catching an edge again, even in the pow. The Allplay is guaranteed to be the most fun, playful and versatile skis you’ve ever ridden, turning the entire mountain into your personal playground.

This ski is kind of a big deal!
Butters, slashes and presses feel natural on The Allplay thanks to its softer, yet intuitive, consistent flex pattern.
- Blister Gear Review
An absolute joy to ride; don't think, just play.
- Freeskier Magazine
A fun and playful ski that's at home carving, buttering and slashing soft snow.
- Backcountry Magazine
If 'Funskiing' were a test category, these would be at the top of the list.
- Powder Magazine
I’ve skied on dozens of skis and I could tell within 2 runs these were going to be great fun and easy to get along with.
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.
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.
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.
