To address the traditional problem of skis chattering, the ski maker Cyrus Schenck has come up with a nontraditional solution: injecting a non-Newtonian polymer into the core that — like Silly Putty — changes consistency upon impact. The more the skis get deflected because of uneven terrain or a high speed, the damper they become, allowing them to absorb the vibrations. At lower speeds or in powder, the core remains lively and flexible for quick turning. The technology won the top award at Europe’s leading ski trade show earlier this year. Tip/waist/tail dimensions (in millimeters): 136/90/124.  Read Story >
