So finally I thought I should port some pics of my recent builds.

The black skis are 80mm under foot. Core is Paulownis with Ash-stringers and ABS sidewalls. Layup is 450g triax Carbon with glassfleece next to the core. On top is just topsheet. In beween the 0 degree fibres are some trapped airbubbles. Didn´t try them yet. I am not happy with the tip yet, I will sand it round soon. I my imagination it looked better.

The one with veneer is 105mm under foot. Core is Ash, 3-11.5-3mm, 750g triax glas and ABS sidewalls. Only tested on the hills of Sauerland. Doing good but Sauerland is to small for a real ski.

The one with the wooden tip and tail is 95mm under foot. Core is Ash, 2.5-11-2.5. Layup is 400g glass uni, 300 carbon biax, core, 300 biax carbon and 400g glass uni. Just some veneer on tip and tail, otherwise pure fibres. Epoxy is Super Sap which is UV-stabilized. No sidewalls but lots of linseed oil. This ski is an evolution of my first three builds. I really liked the third one but after buying new boots I was not able to adjust my bindings far enough. So I decided to build a new ski instead of drilling new holes into the old one. I changed a few things: No sidewalls, no edges at tip and tail, different geometry on tip and tail.
What can I say: I skied it and fell in love. But the Sauerland-rule is to be applied here as well.

So now I am waiting to visit the alps in february and around the easterholidays.

Hi,

nice Skis! Nice to see your quick evolution :)

In the beginning my ski ends were quite flat as yours are, but at least on off-piste skis I didn't like it because as soon as you ski backwards only a little bit (just to get the tips around a tree) the ends get stuck in the snow.

Cheers

Thank you!

The skis are not completly flat at the end, they are all slightly rockered so the end as about as much rise as the end of my previous skis and I never hab problems with them. But still you may be right. I just don´t get as much skiing as you do :(

Hey Hannes, Looks like you have been busy. Some nice looking skis.. Not sure about the tips :-|
If you are driving south over the A8 before Munich, you drive right past my place.. If you want to stop for a coffee & pinkle pause.. send me a PM.
I am nobody. Nobody's perfect, so I must be perfect.

Nice skis Hannes!

I really like the look of the green sidewalls in combination with the veneer topsheet!

Enjoy the alps!

Thanks for posting your skis!
If I remember correctly you are also based in NRW. Would love to see your skis in the real world. Interested?

Ah, well then - its hard to see the tail rocker in the pics :)
And I do not get to ski as much as you think and as I would like - today was day 38 in this season on snow, but often its only 2 hours nightskiing after work.

Keep on building and posting!

Cool skis! I like the two tone sidewalls! What kind of material did you use for those? And how do you like the kingpin?

It is ABS from Skibaumarkt.de.
I can't say much about the kingpin. I was sick during the x-mas holidays and couldn't go skiing. I will get a few days in february. So I only skied them for one day. Since the dynafits tend to release when skiing harder I tried to get a false release from the kingpin as well. I wasn't able to. So for this day I was pretty happy.

Have the Kingpin as well and Skied it for about 140 days now, hat a Dynafit vertical before. Big difference, never would switch back! Especially on my wider skis (98mm underfoot) I feel the difference, much more stable. I was able to pre-release the Kingpin 2 or 3 times, but I skied extremely aggressive on icy conditions with the wide ski, I think a normal binding would have released as well with my standard 9 release value.
