Has anyone ever thought of designing skis specifically for Urban? Much like how twin tips were invented in the first place to cater to this new type form of skiing, and had some pretty drastic differences from the alpine racing skis in terms of construction and features, i think skis made for the purpose of urban could be a good idea. Urban is definitely becoming more popular every season, with lots of pros/kids only putting out urban parts and the addition of events like Xgames real ski/ real snow.
Some things that could be different include construction, as weight of the skis is not as important as normal freestyle skis. Also edges could possibly be omitted since for 90% of urban features you don't need to make any turns. reinforced plates underfoot could help increase durability. All in all, this could lead to not going through multiple pairs of planks every season for the people that hit strictly urban for their parts.
Any body have some other ideas/thoughts on this?
