    The new ski control / RaxSki

    Since 2006 we have been developing a new ski for piste and freeride. Last Monday we found
    the way how to show the RaxSki in action. An invisible pole lets GOPRO camera shoot from all
    possible directions.

    As our East Coast friend MaSkinut posted on TGR: "We sliced through some of the nastiest
    ice/crust I had seen all year and had fun doing it". Other Mags and Snowheads claimed:
    "The worse the conditions, the more you will like RaxSkis". "One can basically ski offpiste
    conditions most skiers would avoid on conventional skis".
    Looks like that they were right!



    RaxSki 2014 – it`s a waisted and elastic ski with a direction control you can find on airplanes and glider boats.

    Off-Piste!
    Education must be the answer, we've tried ignorance and it doesn't work!

    You are right, we were riding just at the rim of a groomer. There was simply not enough snow in the woods around.

    I was looking for a ski for the giant ice chunks that litter the sides of the trail.

    Great line choice and I love the way the music ends before the edit giving one time for reflection.

    Will they fit on my ski racks on my Smart Car?

    Also go-pro is for sure missing the Rad by not using this on their twitter feed for Vid of the day.

    Will the tail section interfere with climbing skins? and what kind of AT binding do you recommend for them? I was hoping to mount mine with dynafits, as I will likely be doing lengthy BC tours. IMO, the tail section is just like a built in crampon, and with reduced size they must be ultra light weight.

    I smell a revolution in light weight BC touring! Thank you Rax!

    Are these the most elaborate troll ever, or do people really ski them?

    Great for beaters that ski from the heel anyway. Call me a pussy, but I tend to avoid giant groomer death cookies.

    Are you saying, Mannix, that you don`t trust in GOPRO ? Wake up, that`s real.
