Full-Perimeter Steel Edge
Two lengths of 2mm steel with inset teeth wrap the full perimeter of the ski. Each section meets at the outermost points of the tip and tail, and is painstakingly hand-bent to ensure a precise layup.
Double Reinforced Mounting Patch
Heel and toe mounting areas are double-reinforced to prevent binding pull out.
Triaxial fiberglass increases dimensional stability along three axis.
Laminated Poplar Wood Core
The hardest wood core we employ, Poplar provides a smooth/damp ride on hardish conditions and more readily takes the abuse when things get out of hand.
Sintered Black Base
This ski passes on the base graphics for the sake of an ultra-high molecular density base; making for faster downhill performance and greater wear/impact resistance.
Many claim that a black base increases a ski's maximum speed. Something about "snow melting faster," which apparently has the effect of "increasing lubrication." Sounds pretty nice, right? Of course, we don't really know if it's true... Regardless, you can rest assured that your p-tex repairs will be seamless after your day spent breaking the sound barrier.
