First pair testing

Post by pavelbozak » Wed Jun 25, 2014 11:02 pm

Hi guys!

I d like to share two videos of testing my first pair. At first, I have to say that there were few things after removing from ski press I wanted to change next time. But this seems to be quite normal.

These fat boys are 192 cm: 146 - 127 - 140, R cca 32 m, full reverse camber. High quality ash (naturaly dried, high density of fibers) core, abs sidewalls, 2 layers of biaxial fiberglass (800 g/m2) ...

After this season I have to say I was satisfied with the result how they worked. The flex is pretty stiff, sidecut long enough for my style of skiing and the durability? - quite fine I thing, no unusual defects. I only had to do a base repare after landing on rocks and just hit them underfoot. But this was not mistake of skis, it was just because of my impatiance in the beginning of the season.

I have also built one pair for my mum, she have skied them more than 30 days this season and no defects too. So It made me to continue with skibuilding this summer. I hope the appearance of skis will be better and better with next pairs and also the properties.

thanks :)

I started with skibuilding just because summer is always killing me. I love skiing and skibuilding is way how to make waiting for next winter shorter...

Nor I can see the photos on flicker, there is probably some problem from their side, I just uploaded photos on czech photo server, try this link, there is 5 photos:

Thanks guys, my aim was to ski them in a fwq competition but unfortunatelly there were icy/rocky conditions so i decided to take my old classic (scott pure 194)

last season was quite poor on snow in austria, hope next season will be much better :)
