Eric Pollard has always known that he wanted to create a ski with a lot of sidecut. A ski that wouldn’t lock into a turn, but still features a ton of effective edge for maximum control. But, like any ski, an idea doesn’t become a reality until you’ve actually created the shape of the ski. That’s where Pollard hit the nail on the head with the idea behind convex tips and tails.
Eric Pollard perfects the convex shape
Essentially, convexity in the ski’s tips and tails allow for a spoon-like shape, making for more of a swift and looser feel while turning in deeper snow. While at the same time, the skis feature an extended effective edge, thus allowing the ski to still perform exceptionally well on groomers.
The spoon-like attributes of convex tip and tails
In the words of Eric “Convex allows the ski to have so much sidecut, while still allowing it to be playful.” The new Sir Francis Bacon and Outline are innovation at its finest. With convex technology, you have the ability to slide, drift, and surf better than ever before.
