    forget shaped carver, forget fat powder ski

    Hi,
    that's me.
    I'm 9 months old and 126 cm long.



    We dared to fix metal fins at ski tail such creating an efficient direction and speed control.

    Principles of operation:
    You immediately feel an unusual grip of metal fins when skiing off-piste.

    Twisting the feet left or right makes skis pivot on their fins and draw a clean curve in the snow.
    Merely on hard snow surface you have to care that fins do really carve and occasionally „shoot“ feet and skis forward to put a pressure on fins and to execute a powerful „jet turn on the fins“.
    Otherwise you are free to turn as you are used to (carve and skidded turns on ski edges).

    The location of fins behind ski boots produces momentum that
    forces both skis to automatically stabilize in the driving direction and therefore parallel to each other. Unlike shaped carver this ski offers no handle
    at ski tip section to get skewed by bumpy terrain.

    We have been convinced later that big-mountain skiers can profit from Rax Ski
    and we are asking SUIT, the Webmaster to change the title of this thread to
    "forget shaped carver, upgrade fat powder ski".

    those would be cool for spraying thin cover rocks, ledge drops etc with sparks.

    That name is cursed... Rax used to have good roast beef sandwiches till Arbys drove them bankrupt.

    Call it a Hard Arby. Much better mojo with that name. You'll do well.

    little detective work and..

    http://www.raxski.com/

    edit:

    No other ski can turn so fast and so easy on groomed slopes (2 or more linked parallel turns per second).
    This technique requires slightly lifted ski tips.
    i totally need a pair of these

    My guess is somebody designed brakes into a learning ski. Just lean back, like a rollerblade brake. Right?

    Damn I got out of breath just reading that. Makes a snowlerblade look like a Super G or a downhill board.

    don't click this fucks fake link. It is NSFW or home. I knew ahead of time not to because I saw the reaction of others from another thread he posted the same shit in. More than a fucking douche! You, Mr funny man, are a hateful fuck and your daddy still wants to slip it in your mouth occasionally

    these skis are obviously derived from the mad austrian "firngleiters", very short skis that you can still see around the local hills in the late spring when theres a lot of soft corn snow around. with those inventions of devil you can only control your speed by leaning backwards which makes the tails dig in to the snow (the tails are usually very short or non-existant). people using those can be seen in bigger groups, following each other around the hill and creating upwards of 50cm deep runnels..

    you can imagine my bewildernment during my first season here in austria when i slightly hungover dragged myself the local hill for some afternoon corn skiing and noticed that i was the ONLY person with normal skis on the hill. i hadnt seen "firngleiters" before and i had no fucking idea what they were, but everyone had these ancient looking metal things attached to their feet, and all of them were chuckling at my amusement. as i mentioned earlier the way you ski those is to point them straight down the fall line and dig in the tails, and then just hope that the speed wont get too high. now imagine about 50 austrians screaming and jodling while coming down some quite steep chutes with no control at all.. oh the horror

    That sounds like insanity
    You're gonna stand there, owning a fireworks stand, and tell me you don't have no whistling bungholes, no spleen spliters, whisker biscuits, honkey lighters, hoosker doos, hoosker donts, cherry bombs, nipsy daisers, with or without the scooter stick, or one single whistling kitty chaser?

    I pm'd him to see if he'd make me some 270cm 200mm underfoot models.

    I'm going to use them as a monoski for charging the sickterest lines.
