    Nice! I think the compound camber will be so awesome on a skinny Q too. Perhaps even more suited to it! I think that wherever you mount them, you'll want that underfoot rocker section to be, well,...

    Just stumbled upon a pair of brand new ‘21 ARG IIs on sale for 60% off and after seeing your post I snapped them up. I had forgotten how much I’ve always wanted that ski. Very stoked.

    188cm. First build was 182cm, flex 3, UL+C core, no veneer. This build is 188cm, still flex 3, but with enduro core and veneer, as well as the mentioned tweaks to camber/rocker profile.

    Heads up that CCR is the Praxis acronym for Continuous Curve Rocker, which is not the molding done on my Qs. CCR is full reverse camber from tip to tail, think pontoons or spatulas. My pair had a...

    I don't have a blueprint for em or anything, Keith definitely did the real design legwork so I guess just ask him for Olivers Quixote and see if he'll do another pair. I think the shape would scale...

    Everything about the ski except the rocker/camber profile is a Quixote - the top down geometry is unchanged. Same sidecut, mount point (-7, mounted on the line), etc. My initial mock-ups that I sent...
