I had the infamous first line invaders (comic book ones) and they delammed like am other fucker. Anyways my dad just picked up some normal epoxy from the store and like that guy said clamped it over night, and they became bomb proof after that. So I don't think it maters, see if they have one that says water proof or something on it, if such a thing exists.
check your warranty, if they're still within then get in touch with the retailer you bought them from. if not, then repair with epoxy and rivets if you want.
thing with epoxy is to make sure all the surfaces are properly dry and dust free before you apply it, then clamp it up tight and leave for 24hrs. if you really want to rivet them, do this after the epoxy has set. a google search should return some results for riveting ski tips/tails
Yeah what he said. Most people recommend marine epoxy since its waterproof, but all epoxy really is waterproof. I use hobby store model airplane epoxy (but I've never fixed a delam with it) So yeah I would just recommend using epoxy from a marine store, Make sure you clean both sides thouroghly before putting the epoxy in there. Also mix the epoxy REALLY well or it wont cure. Mix it per the instructions to, if you have to much catalyst the epoxy can ignite itself. Clamp it nice and tight with maybe some wood blocks to prevent damage to the ski. Also if you can, flip the ski with the base up to prevent epoxy from leaking all over your base, because when you epoxy this, you want just enough to ooze out around the area. While its curing if you have a space heater, throw that facing the ski (just be careful not to burn the place down) Then after you're all done, if you can I would suggest putting one or two rivets about a half inch back from the tip.
This was happening to me on my old invaders, so I brought it to my shop and one of the guys there had the same thing happening on his antics. Apparently they sent him these clip things that you screw into the ski. He had a bunch left, so my skis now look like this.
I guess you could epoxy it, dunno how well it'd hold though. Or acquire these clip things.

Before you try to repair them see if you can get them warrantied. Contact wherever you bought them from and I'm sure they will help you out this is usually a factory defect. Luckily I was able to warranty a pair of skis for the same problem.
you can bolt it shut with 2 washers and a bolt and epoxy it

When you walk out the door in the morning, what matters most is not what type of skiing you do but whether that skiing is any good. On a waist-deep day, dropping into tight chutes or open bowls, down a sweet line throught the trees where pockets of wind-blown snow create so many natural lips and launching pads... So lets let the dubious bickering within our own sport die with it. The answer is already out there, along with the energy, the freedom, and the truth: What "saved skiing" is SKIING. - Tom Bie
apoxy is great, but will give out quick enough. if you combine the two, your skis will be bombproof. i just delammed 3 tips on my shitty 4FRNT's and filled them all with apoxy then put 5 rivets in each tip. its not going anywhere
