Jib specific ski
How about a ski with a titanium plate right under your foot for grinding rails with minimal damage done to the ski. And how about a warranty that covers the ski even if its used on rails.
What do you think?
not so sure about the titanium grind plate.....but a warranty that covers rail use would be nothing less than a dream come true.
I think the concept is good but by fusing a plate in the middle of the base, you would make the ski a lot weaker and change the flex of the ski. maybe have the edges connected directly into the plate as the same unit
didn't rossi do this a while back?
I AM A SKIER.
^^ Thats what I ment. The plate is fused to or welded to the edge of the ski.
My buddy came across a pair of test skis by line last season that tried to integrate this idea. The problem was that the base wanted to delam at the interface with the plate, so did the edges.
They did that a long time ago with the Rossi Pow'Air Grind. Bad ski.
The problem with Titanium is that it's too soft for that kind of application. Perhaps just some stronger base material combined with a more durable edge would be better.
no, rossi pow air grinds just had a 3rd edge in the middle, this kid is talking about a plate that takes up the whole base under foot (unless im mistaken)
^ yeah thats what I mean. In one with edges as well, so the don't come off.
Hey I could come up with some decent engineered drawings if it's worth it. Send it to companies around. I didn't think through the whole idea yet.
Like how would that effect the flex pattern of the ski nor how to actually integrate the plate in to the ski.
i would be willing to bet that there will never be a ski with a warrenty (sp?) that covers rails...companies would be giving out free skis so often it would put them out of business
skiing is for little fat kids
ya, rail damage is something that we are all going to have to learn to live with, they will never warrenty skis for that
yeah seriously they dont have a warrant on skateboards.. and they get trashed quicker then anything.
