The Ski Diva Reviews RENOUN's Z-77 Ski

Posted by Rhiana M. on

A review of the Z-77 by The Ski Diva: "My first day on them was ideal for putting them to the test: 2-3 inches of fresh powder that was eventually scraped away to reveal a surface of alternately packed powder and ice. This was great; I got to try them in everything from the sublime to the miserable. And in every instance, these skis rocked. If I had to reduce it to one word, I’d say they were smooth. No, let me change that to two words: smooth and stable. No, let me change once again: smooth, stable, and OMIGOD THESE ARE SO MUCH FUN. Okay. I got carried away....

Skis that when you put them in the rack at the lodge, you walk away, look back at them, and think “I’m not that hungry, let’s take another couple of runs.” Skis that I don’t have to ski, but that I want to ski....

Originally from Mountain Online Interview by Sarah Tuff Dunn | Photographs by Joel Caldwell Inventor, Skier, Lego kid The inventor and Northern Vermonter built catapults as a child, and for a while studied engineering at Clarkson University, but he had his first triumph when he stumbled upon a non-Newtonian polymer named Hyper Damping Technology, or HDT. The polymer behaved a little like Silly Putty, but with a strange attribute of deadening vibration. Schenck theorized HDT could dampen chattery hardpack—if he could only get the stuff into a ski. Enter countless 18-hour days in a prototype lab, and summers washing windows to fundraise....
