La nouvelle affaire!!! (the new thing)

Post by Bri7 » Thu Oct 15, 2015 8:52 pm

Me and Johnny have been pretty busy since the end of our ski season 64 days ago. We came up we several ideas on how we could reinvent the ski world. We spent a lot of time building prototype in the basement and at work (for me). Our goal was to share with you on a regular basis our invention as soon as the ski season starts. Since i'm starting my ski season this monday at Sunday river and since Johnny will probably do his first day of real ski on real snow this saturday (frost doesn't really count according to me), here a teaser to feed your appetite.

Listen to my theme song: "La nouvelle affaire" and enjoy :) (I know Johnny will hate for the theme song choice)

It's been challenging a lot more than expected but I did managed to "waxless" a few bases. It seems to work fine for now but I haven't tested it on snow yet.

For now I have to remove the base of the ski and epoxy a new one. I haven't figure out a way to mold the pattern successfully under 25 tons pressure. Not sure a conventional ski can resist that amount of pressure.


If you are interested, Johnny will take orders. Price starts at 49.99$ per ski! (Any trade are welcome)
