Hmmm a bit like skiing with your harscheisen still on your touring skis.
Greetings from Vienna, admin. Well the harscheisen were invented just to stop any movement, whereas RaxSki wings and fins are controlling this movement. May I show you the Raxalpe as it was last Sunday
This extreme fun carver (radius 1.5m, 5cm underfoot) was in action in this Rax-gorge.
Floating on the powder right and few minutes later cutting grooves in the old firn-ice left.
Executing a carved turn on such steep/hard slope, this ski is drawing two grooves by each ski.
The wing is cutting the inner groove and the sidewall-fin at the ski-tale the outer one.
The distance between the two lines varies between 2 and 10cm, deepending on the orientation of ski-base.
It was very difficult to measure the traces as you could slide down any time.
Yet only the tracking tells you the whole story.
Believe me, Davidof. no other ski could carve here 4 hours without skidding aside.
