Rocker at the tip and tail and camber underfoot allows for incredible float and maneuverability in the trees and chutes while maintaining a significant amount of edge hold for both the icy runouts and the groomers.
ASPEN/PINE WOOD COREFull length, knot free, in house laminated wood core gives this ski its unique blend of liveliness and dampening. All wood sourced in the USA.
UHMW SIDEWALLThe strongest and most durable sidewall material on the market ensures you have the best edge hold available while ripping the piste.
CARBON FIBER HYBRID COMPOSITE STRUCTUREA custom blend of triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber helps give this ski its torsional rigidity along with added longitudinal pop.
4001 DURASURF BASEHands down the most durable base on the market. Dont worry about those snow snakes.
2.2 EURO EDGEThere are only handful of edge manufacturers in the world. We go straight to the source in Europe to offer the best edge possible. We do additional heat treating and bonding prep in house to make sure your edge stays sharper, lasts longer and can handle a beating.
Can’t really review them yet because it’s 92 degrees, they’re not mounted yet and for my wife. But they look f$&@‘n awesome.
I’m a ski patroller in the Sierras and got the Hot Mess skis because I thought they’d be a good every day driver. Little did I know they’d exceed my expectations. I find myself riding them at work and on my off days because they are so much fun. They carve hard on the groomers, crush through the crud and sludge, yet still manage to float through the pow. And, of course, they’re the prettiest skis out there and get compliments non stop.
Best ski on the east!
If you are looking for an all mountain ski, this is it! In New England our conditions vary more than I think anywhere else, from powder days to bullet proof ice. These skis not only ski beautifully in all conditions they make it a party! I have never had more fun on skis!! I was very tentative going into bumps, not good thing but my Hot Mess's just told me to hang on for the ride, they got it!! Whether you like a big graceful GS turn or a snappy quick turn, and I like both, this ski does both with style!! Enjoy!!!
