    For when you really need your skis to be atomically thin and electrically conductive.

    So wtf is this substance and what does it do?

    Never mind, should have googled. I thought it was just a ski thing.

    I assume we are looking at a pair.of Head skis there? They marketed (still market?) skis with some supposedly micro-thin layer of a substance they called graphene. Was supposed to help w torsional rigidity or something, but I don't believe it ever made any sense b/c it was supposed to be a molecule thin layer or something. So while the substance was truly great in terms of strength to weight, it was hard to believe it actually did anything.

    If that's a wax overlay/additive I would assume it's some version of graphite wax, electrostatic blah blah blah.

    You'd never have to sharpen your edges, so that'd be nice.
