The First and Only

How do you innovate in an industry confined to the physical dimension? All skis share a basic principle; they’re boards that slide on snow. Who are we to say ours are different? It’s a fair question that we’ve been asked many times.

When we started RENOUN, we gave ourselves one rule: break them.

Founded in 2011, we struggled to make our products unequivocally different. This industry has incredible talent so that’s no easy task. Skis have been designed, built, ripped apart, re-designed, and rebuilt so many times, we wondered how we could stand apart. We were lucky, actually. On a Monday morning, we stumbled onto the data from a polymer that cheated physics. The beautiful truth in the data led us in pursuit of what would become HDT™. We wrestled with this substance previously reserved for the aerospace industry and prototyped our skis until we found success. In 2014, we launched RENOUN and immediately turned heads. Within two months we won ISPO’s Gold Award. This isn’t to say we’ve completed our mission. Far from it. We exist to develop products that move, inspire, and create purpose in people’s lives.

There is much more to do. And we refuse to stop.

About Our Founder

As a Northern Vermont native, Cyrus Schenck grew up skiing the beautifully harsh conditions of the east coast. Schenck searched the world over to find a ski that could adapt to the many varieties of conditions he faced daily and his efforts were met with little success… so he decided to build it himself.

With a passion for design, a deep appreciation of simplified engineering, and a love for speed - Schenck translated these passions into revolutionary ski designs and founded RENOUN.

Like most Vermonters, Schenck remains anchored to the foundations of hard work and carries a “do it yourself” attitude that has propelled his entrepreneurial career. To fund his passion project Cyrus started a window washing business, servicing over 200 local clients to build funding for his brand.

While attending Clarkson University, Cyrus was introduced to the concept of a non-Newtonian polymer. Three short years later in 2015, RENOUN captured the coveted world-class ISPO GOLD Award in Munich Germany in recognition of its pioneering technological design. Receiving international acclaim in an industry rife with familiar designs and "new-but-same" innovations, Schenck saw his vision become reality. Most recently, RENOUN took first prize in the 2015 LaunchVT competition earning recognition in his home state where it all began.

Motivated by the never-ending pursuit of superior performance through engineering and beautiful design, Schenck has firmly planted RENOUN on the ski industry’s map.

As RENOUN prepares for the future they bring with them a proven ability to engineer, create, and build products that continually challenge industry standards. There is no doubt that conventional wisdom has become a footnote in the progressive pages written by the company’s Founder

 

Product Promise

1,600 came before us.
We will not be 1,601.
Renoun Logo

We believe everything can be made better. At RENOUN we refuse to build another product simply because we can. As engineers, we’re dedicated to improving performance, and we’re starting with skis. If we weren’t certain we could make a better ski, we would have done something else.  

There are close to 1,600 ski models in todays market, and we think that’s crazy. Not just the sheer number, but that out of 1,600 skis, so few are fundamentally different.

 With RENOUN’s proprietary Hyper Damping Technology, we are building a better ski and challenging everything that came before us.

1,600 came before us.

We will not be 1,601.

Warranty

Twice the standard.

The RENOUN Warranty

2 Year Limited Warranty

2X the Standard

We want you to love your skis and we put a huge amount of effort and care into making sure they are designed and made in the best way possible. We’re so damn proud of them that we offer a Two-Year Limited Warranty. We also realize that every ski is handmade, and sometimes, the human factor shines in an undesirable way. 

If the case arises that our skis have a manufacturing defect, we stand by our work. We’ll replace your ski. We exist to improve and push limits, not stuck in some lame fine-print kind of operation.

What this doesn’t mean however, is that we’ll replace any ski that comes in. This isn’t our first rodeo. If you abuse or misuse the ski we won’t replace it. If you're hoping to take advantage of us from something you caused, next time buy a ski from a big company and they will be happy to put you in with the crowd. Don't seek out hard objects to hit with your skis. 

If your ski was truly defective because of ours hands, call us. We’ve got your back. And then some.
