We get it. Summer is still going on strong and the last thing you probably want to think about are back-to-school specials and Fall getaways. Us too! So that’s why we’re going to skip all that and get right to the point – Winter.
Yes! Winter. Our favorite time of year. Bring on the blower overhead, perfect park corduroy and endless aprés…
And of course our timing is perfect: we’re releasing our 2016 selection of skis, poles and accessories! Designed so that you have a More Funner time on gravity powered sliding devices, this year’s selection is destined to have your next favorite pair of skis!
Here are a few highlights:
Year after year, we’ve worked with visionary artist, designer and professional skier Eric Pollard to bring new ski profiles, materials and performance to the hill and this season, our working relationship hasn’t changed but some things have! For 2016, we’re introducing the brand new Mordecai as well as a completely redesigned Sir Francis Bacon!
At 114 mm underfoot, the Mordecai is the ski Pollard uses when conditions are deep, but not stupid deep (i.e. Magnum Opus). Constructed with Cloud Core, this ski is ultra lightweight and responsive – a perfect platform for any approach to powder skiing.
With the Sir Francis Bacon, we decided to take advantage of the Cloud Core found in all of Pollard’s skis and include it in the SFB which makes this new version 19% lighter than the previous year! With a sleeker profile due to its new tapered tip and tail and slimmer 104mm waist, the Sir Francis Bacon continues to build on its award winning and all mountain shape!
The Sick Day Tourist is our first venture into backcountry specific skis and designed for skiers who want a lightweight touring ski that doesn’t sacrifice fun and performance – the Tourist has a floaty directional flex and is incredibly lightweight, thanks to its Cloud Core. The skis also have notched tails for easy skin attachment which is perfect for use with our new Snakeskins climbing skins.
The Sick Day 102 is a new addition to our award winning freeride line. The 102 was developed to fill the niche between the Sick Day 95 and the 110. It is perfect for cruising resort laps and then heading through the gate to find freshies in the backcountry.
For the freestyle/all-mountain skier who’s looking for a more affordable option, you’ll want to check out the all new Tigersnake! Lively, light and sold at an accessible price, you’ll find this ski has an Aspenlite core and carbon-fiber stringers that run the length of the ski for an extra poppy ski in the park.
