Killer Tele-ski-esp. w/ diy rocker
By Jack Wizo December 26, 2009
I bought a pair of these used in a 185 (ravyns) from Shaun Raskin. I mounted 'em with Hammerhead telemark bindings. Cool ski. Rides well, but I wanted some early rise in my early season ski. Long story short, I was bored and wanted to experiment with home-made reverse camber. I had done the same thing with some Atomic Powder Plus boards with success. I sandwiched the two skis together, clamped them, and put four inch spacers between the two skis to de-camber them.
The skis were pretty great to begin with, but with a 3cm tip and tail rise over 17cm of run, with camber under foot- these things are great. I went shit your pants fast on these my first run at Alta. Basically, these are my early season rockered skis, that I can tear up. Already used more than one p-tex candle on these.
I know I voided the warranty and all that, and some people might be pulling their hair out calling me an idiot, but try these skis and you'll be singing a different tune.
