This ski is a proven competition dominator. Utilizing our patented EST Park Rocker in combination with the best and lightest materials possible, we provide you with a park ski without equal. A progressive park tool that will help you push yourself, and skiing, to the next level.
A blend of Carbon/Kevlar stringers that run along the tail of the skis to help stabilize it. This creates a better landing platform, especially when your weight is further back than intended. It also increases snap and adds pop to ollies .
COMP SERIES BASE
A World Cup-inspired base that requires higher maintenance than the S7, the Comp Series pays for the extra TLC it requires in one way: Speed.
EST PARK ROCKER
The next level. Subtle rocker in the tips and tails with positive camber underfoot. This enhances carving while also disengaging the tip and tail to create a catch-free feel that’s ideal for buttering and nose and tail presses.
HYBRID TRIPLE CORE
These core inlays are configured in the same way as the DoubleZone, TripleZone and UltraLight cores, but with pre-installed ABS layers laid alongside the core, directly under foot. Unique to our AR50 constructions, these cores concentrate the weight of the ski below the boot sole, increas-ing durability and lowering swing weight
ABS sidewall meets cap construction – the best of both worlds. This engineering method combines the lightweight cap construction in the tip and tail with ABS sidewall underfoot, resulting in enhanced edgehold and significantly lower swing and overall weight.
This edge has an oversized height and width and the steel is heat-treated to a proprietary hardness which helps resist breaking and tearing out from rails, ledges and any other abuse it might meet.
We know from the core out exactly how each ski should react, so three kinds of fiberglass laminates are used in combination to deliver the exact amount of flex and torsional rigidity. Bi-axial fiberglass runs in an “x” pattern down the ski to control lateral flex. Uni-directional fiberglass controls flex along the length of the ski. And tri-axial fiberglass, with fibers running in three directions, beefs up the center of the ski. The permutations of the three fiberglasses are nearly limitless and allow us to precision tune the performance of every ski we make.
