    Pechelman designed a lot of the lhasa as I recall. He used to be really active on tech talk, actual rocket scientist/surgeon I think.

    I remember a discussion on here about it, then the next year(?) the first s7 came out and seemed have a lot of similar conclusions about what a ski could be. Though of course it was toned down and aimed more at accessibility instead of performance.

    Fill me in on history.
    Was he the French intern / rocket scientist that designed the Kusala & Bya?
    (At least as I understood it).

    I love pechelman!

    PS On my trip up to Jackson Hole (which has been off the hook; 2' of blower on the repress of the Kusala) I was skiing the lime green Lhasas and some guy recognized them and asked me if Bro Skis was back in business.
    I told him sadly no.
    Yeah, I believe Abe's right, some sort of scientist. I believe I remember something about designing race cars too. Got in an argument with blurred and disappeared.
    It was known as the Brocker back then.
    Frenchie was a different dude(yeah Kusala).

    He did most of the cad work and a bit of design stuff for pm gear back in the day. Certainly splat was the driving force behind everything but P was (still is) highly intelligent and highly motivated and a good resource as a result. He's doing well as of last time we spoke. Still performing rocket surgery on the regular but no longer a front ranger after being head hunted to do space work elsewhere.

    Cletus: Duly noted.

    Well, I don't know how the fuck to link it, but what I get from post #61 in the 'PMGear reviews 186 Brocker and 195 Superbro" thread was that it was indeed designed by Pechelman

    Pechelman designed the 186 Lhasa, which as a pintail was kinda earth-shattering at the time. We expanded the design to the 196, then down to the 191, which was adjusted and recast in varying tail widths a few times. Then we dropped down to the 179 Lhasa.
