    Glacier Opening and Ski Absolute

    Austrian glaciers started the new season October 12,
    with temperatures up to 13 centigrade at 3,000 meters.
    But the new snow off-piste was promising for the sharpest freeride ski ever - the Ski Absolute.

    Oh, that thing. Got it. I thought someone had broken their ski in half and left it sticking up in the snow.

    i think we should do a group buy and everyone can try it out at BBI's and weekends. Shipping should be fairly cheap, looking at it.

    Someone hadn`t just broken the ski. No, he even mounted fins at the rear of the ski.

    Yeah, "that thing" got rear fins like an airplane, a wind surfer, a speed boat or a water ski.
    Metallic fins carve the snow/ice surface and perform turns you have been just dreaming of.

    Norseman was asking:
    "Do I have to wear rear-entries to ski RAX?"

    No, there is no compulsory dress code for Rax riders!

    Any chance you'll release a twin-tip model? I think the fin stabilization would really help me improve my switch skiing

    Those boots look like rear entry Nordicas from about 1982.

    I feel the thread title is misleading. I thought this was about a new Absolute Vodka born of glacier water. I'm kind of bummed...But those "skis", so intriguing!

    Hey, if he is having fun with them, rock on. If you're spamming them, walk on.

    No there will be no twin-tip Rax Ski, as there is no "twin-tip airplane", no such ship, boat or missile,
    no symmetrical spear or shooting gun...even not a symmetrical horse.
    With "twin-tip symmetry" you are just losing all advantages the physics can offer.
