A unique take on a traditional carving ski — take it anywhere. Easy to ski, yet has no top end.

Description

The Z-90 really is a unique ski and fits in-between categories that most people think of. It has the shape of a traditional carver with a 15m radius, yet at 90mm underfoot, its wide enough to duck off trails, power through crust & crud and even surf powder. It’s easy to ski casually but rips when you lay it over — there’s no top end.

  • Moneyback Guarantee

  • 90mm waist
    We combined a traditional carver shape and wider waist to make a super capable all-around ski that rips on groomers.
  • Non-Newtonian
    We embed channels of a non-newtonian polymer that literally adapts to snow conditions and ski style. When exposed to higher speeds and vibrations, the polymer hardens actively damping the ski. It sounds too good to be true, right?

HDT™

We embed channels of a non-newtonian polymer called HDT™ into every ski we make. When exposed to vibrations, the polymer hardens actively damping the ski. It literally adapts to snow conditions and ski style. It’s the first of its kind, sounds too good to be true, right?!

My go-to when conditions are unknown...

It was so much fun to try different snow and terrain conditions with this ski. Incredibly versatile, I had a smile on my face for a week. Thank you Renoun! I am proud to be part of your team! The online ski selector service and downstream service was very well done!

The Z90s tackle any bump, turn, or speed I throw at them! They're great!

I finally got my Z-90's, with Tyrolia Attack 13 bindings, out for the first time this weekend (Whitetail, PA). With temps into the 50's and snow ranging from untouched groomed to chopped up crud-- they were incredible. The vibration damping works, the ride was smooth no matter what was underfoot in these early season "spring" conditions. Effectively the skis disappeared from my awareness, the sensation was simply one of pressure underfoot and control no matter what I asked of them. Response was immediate with no swing weight worth noting; they carved precisely even on the one small patch of wet hockey rink I could find, plowed through a few deliberately hit bowling-ball sized snowballs effortlessly, and were willing to tackle any bump, turn, or speed I threw at them. Never too stiff nor too soft. The day included a private lesson with an extremely experienced instructor that was also quite impressed by how they performed from his perspective. There's no doubt they allowed me to ski better than ever- even on the first day of the season for me. I'm convinced already... and looking forward to trying them on a real mountain in January! My wife was equally impressed with her own Z-90's. Thanks for making such a great product.

They are awesome!

My husband gave me these skis in anticipation of a trip out west. They've been awesome in the powder out west (Alta) as well as the ice in the east! Love their ability to transition. Jan

These things are great!

Skiing in New England and run into all types of conditions. My first time on the z90's was on ice and crud, but I couldn't wait to take them for a spin. Although nothing would have felt great on that snow, the z90's did a great job holding an edge and plowing through anything with great stability. Last few times out was on better snow and I have to say, these things are great! Quick from edge to edge, stable at high speeds and really handle the firm, fast, icy and corduroy snow I've been out one. Haven't been in trees, bumps or powder yet due to the conditions, but the early reviews are great!! I'm 5'8" 160 lbs and got the 165 length. I was torn between that and 174 and on Renoun's advice went shorter. So far so good. Wish they would have offered them in a 170 length.

Best skis and incredible service

These skis are incredible. The z-77’s are unbelievably light, stable and quiet yet not overly stiff. After skiing them for a few days I ordered a pair of the endurance too. The customer service is equally incredible. Quick to answer any questions and very quick getting me the skis. My friends probably think I’m on commission I’ve been talking the up so much.

They live up to the hype

I now have about 15 days on my new Z Line skis and they have significantly exceeded my expectations. They are the perfect New England ski. They are great carvers on groomers, holding a line , whether -quick turns along the side of a trail, or wide turns, without sliding as the trail is skied off in the afternoon. It is easy to get them around on the bumps, and they really excel in holding an edge on the bullet proof bumps we encounter after a thaw/ rain/ freeze cycle. They are versatile, skiing equally well in the woods and groomed and ungroomed terrain. They are a pleasure to ski.

First turn was amazing....but it kept getting better!

The Z-90 is the best, most versatile, and most fun ski I have ever skied. Clean carves, energy from turn to turn, easy to vary turn shape, handles all conditions from AM soft snow to icy patches to afternoon crud. The HDT really works....ski them faster and feel the damping effect; ski them slowly and the ski turns easily with a big sweet spot. So much fun!!! The Z-90 has made my other skis obsolete.......now I just want to try an Endurance or Citadel!

Z-90 in 90mm, 180cm Great Ski

Very impressive and the HDT does work. The most interesting is the fact the faster you go the more stable it gets. Just laughed going down the hill at how stable it gets the harder you push it. Never had a ski like this in the 35 years + of skiing. Short to long carves, does it all. Well done, ordering the Citadel to replace my aging Soul 7's.

174 Z-line

Skied my new 174 Z line Renouns this weekend. Loved them, and I can't say that about a ski very often! Typically, if it hasn't been a volkl o a stockli, I'll ski a new ski once and either sell them or give them to a friend. I'm keeping these bad boys - super playful and can arc a turn on super firm snow! Smiled all day! Glad I found you guys! John

Proud to be part of the RENOUN family

After using borrowed equipment for much of the winter, I screwed up my courage and bought the Z90s and a pair arrived a few weeks ago. I have been able to use them and oh - what a difference. They are not skis they are rockets, and the more you drive into them the more they deliver for you. In the past several weeks there has been everything from solid ice to frozen granular and powder and wet mashed potatoes and these Renoun  skis have handled all of it. But the most remarkable time was two weeks ago on solid white ice -  in which case of the carving characteristics were absolutely stunning. The combination of the smoothness of the anti-vibration and the ski cut slices across ice with complete control and stability at whatever speed you want to go with. In the softer stuff there’s wonderful float and maneuverability through bumps, taking me through terrain  that I would never have taken on myself. I try to keep up with a pretty fast crowd at wildcat and they are exceptional skiers – it was an amazing moment after a few runs on the new Z90s - one of those great skiers leaned over to me on the chairlift and said “I don’t know what’s in those skis Bob but you’re skiing has been transformed- You have confidence and speed. We’re all really proud of you”. Thank you so much.  I am proud to be part of this family of the Renoun skis that you have created.

What you invented is a miracle

I didn’t believe what you were promising :))) Gentlemen, CONGRATULATIONS. My first day out was incredible. Worst conditions ever : heavy wet snow, not groomed. Your equipment made it possible. TY I want a lilifetime discount starting with my second pair :))) I am dead serious. What you did/ invented/ developed is a miracle. I am 49 110 kg . Today was foggy, +6", wet tough snow and there was not even one groomed track. People just don t ski at the end of March in Romania because you usually don t have snow at this time of the year. I was having second thoughts even trying. But i did. I am amazed. I had a wonderful time because it was easy. You have a fan at the other side of the world. Sincerely, Adrian from Romania

From another planet. . .

After the first day on Renoun skis, I can only conclude these came from another planet with a civilization way more advanced in skiing than earthlings. After progressing through 50 years of ski technology under my feet, I just experienced a day from the future. There are more performance aspects of these skiis that are not described on your website. When the skiis are naturally "dampened" they hold a line on ice, as they do not chatter and lose their grip like every other ski I have ever owned. I can only say that I am so amazed by these skiis and the technology that I also purchased the Z-90s as well. The friends I was skiing with are now considering them as well. Amazing stuff!

Compare all skis.
