Good Afternoon DOWN FAITHFUL!
As you´ve seen we´ve made HUGE changes in the lineup from last year making this year’s ski the best we have released. Of course I would say that but it is true. We have made amazing progress in finding the right combination of art and science in our skis. We have made a lot of improvements including finishing, new topsheets, new damping layups, rolled-topsheet, step-down sidewalls, alu tail inserts, non-crimp carbon…and more..but I´ll outline the lineup with some details below.
Before we go into the specifics of each lineup we want to remind you of the quality of ski you are getting. Each ski is handmade in the EU by our NEW partner factory that has over 30+ years of experience producing top quality skis for not only DOWN but some of the industries highest regard brands. In addition we have improved our carbon layups this year by combing rubber, flax, and non-crimp carbon to make the skis damper while keeping the skis light, lively, and fun. Add on new industry leading IsoSport (ICP8201) topsheets and handcrafted alu tail protectors you are getting an amazing ski at an amazing value…we would say the best price to performance ratio in the industry!
The CountDown-series is our freeride/all mtn lineup, with modified rocker lines from last year and stiffer flexes overall making these skis even more versatile. All skis in the Countdown series have our hybridflax/carbon fiber combo and ash/poplar cores. Did your friends rave about our 15/16 CD lineup?….16/17 is even better!
The ThrowDown series is our freestyle line of skis, with the most playful rocker profiles, more symmetrical flex patterns and full twintips. The skis in the Throwdown series have softer carbon/glass layup than the Countdown skis, making them more forgiving and light. We heard you and introduced a rolled topsheet sandwich construction (less chipping, longer lasting) and used only the BEST ICP8210LX topsheet to make them the best money can buy. Each ski was designed with our teams input and can be used from park to pow…and of course and 1 of it’s kind topsheet 🙂
The LowDown series is our premier free-touring and mountaineering ski series. A hardwood core, our hybridflax/carbon fiber layup, sandwich construction, 1.9mm edges, and full race bases The shaping is our LRC concept giving you a “full-on”big-mountain shape and “full-on” freeride constuction in a lightweight package…and yeah at 50% off the cost of our “big conglomerate” friends. We added a little weight this year (direct from your feedback) to make the ski more balanced and better on the down.
The ShowDown Series are all the skis direct from YOUR feedback. The SD95 is our piste/all mtn metal ski what rips hardpack and can be used all day every day. The SD105 is truly one of it’s kind. BIG, BAD, and 202CM in length. These are both limited edition so they will be sold out by winter.
All that being said thank you for the support and let us know if you have any questions..we are here to help (direct owner customer service as always-([email protected] and [email protected]) Winter is coming and thanks for GETTING DOWN! -Geo and Simen
