    After watching the most recent video I find myself in awe. I can't believe how "IN CONTROL" you look, however I would like some non-POV footage to confirm what I can see from your shadow/hand movement/ski tips. So much CONTROL! Why do you carry both your poles in the right hand? Is that some sort of weight distribution technique? I can see how it might help make a very powerful left hand turn with the extra weight over the top of your outside ski. Cheers!

    I appreciate your open-minded approach to this unusual ski, Brianskis!
    Carrying both poles in one hand has no special meaning for RaxSki technique. You could as well ride as you are used to or even without any poles.
    It`s just quite boring for a viewer of a helmet-camera video to watch both poles in action that is being repeated thousand times.

    Compare also with this video showing extreme short RaxSkis


    Well the RaxSkis ARE different and there is no other way to understand them than to GIVE THEM A TRY

    Excuse me, snomaster! Is there ANY similarity between RaxSki and heartcarve ? This dark-wood conventional ski ?

    Thank you. So lets move from France to Austria / Rax Alpe. This is our home site.
    It`s just the half of La Meije (2,000m) but even steeper.

    It appears with the control afforded by RAX skis stopping anytime should not be a problem, even on the steepest of pistes... Rest easy my friend.

    Thank you, Brianskis! We are trying our best. Larger and sharper fins & wings would make the ski even more manoeverable for extreme skiing
    but too dangerous for normal usage as a freeride and piste ski.

    That looks like so much fun - it's like watching Candide and thinking "man it must be so much fun to ski like that". Have you tried giving some Rax to Candide?
