NP Skis are much cooler than LeeSkis!

    @Horton So is a 2x4, what's your point? :)
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    I'm impressed. Sweet look!

    Do I get a demo ride? And do I have to do it wrong foot forward?

    Of course, primer white is the only color for a ski.

    Very cool looking. How heavy do you think it is?

    @Chef23 Probably quite light.
  • eleeskieleeski Posts: 3,900 Infinite Pandas
    Wood can be reasonably light. It can have good flex properties. It can be fairly strong. It takes clever engineering and quality construction. These skis appear to have both. They look like fun skis.

    I've built wood skis. The "Trick Magic" name came from the performance of a wood ski I built. My wood skis didn't last so I was always chasing the magic. I had a lot more control of the engineering and build quality with composites. That's just me.

    Wood aircraft are about the same weight as composite planes (and aluminum or steel tube and fabric). Every material has its advantages and quirks. Lots of right ways to do things.

    @eleeski
    This is my trick. A different construction. 5 veneers 1200mmx325mm
    It It weighs 3.2 kg Just over 7 pounds with plate and back kicker.
    This Ski is very strong and could potentially be thinner and therefore lighter with still good strength.

    Wood is of course almost a foam.
