Good design is invisible. It will act as the bond between you and the world — there, but never in the way. Not hindering, only helping.
When we design a pair of skis, our aim is for your experience on the hill to be a byproduct of them. You’re in control, not your skis. If we’ve done our job right, you won’t even notice them on your feet.
When we developed VibeStop™, people said it couldn’t be done. We thought otherwise, and we were right. We're not here to agree with the masses. We are here to lead the way, unabashedly and unapologetically, so you might enjoy your day just a little bit more.

“I’ve always thought there must be a better way to make a ski with all the high-tech materials being developed in other industries. Ski shapes have drastically improved over the last few decades, but we’re still using the same steel edges and wood cores as my father’s generation. It’s 2020 and I think it’s time to challenge what we’ve all been sold as ‘new’ technology because I think we can do much, much better.”
