  • Call it what you want—legend, cult, conspiracy, alien technology—the Deathwish is like nothing else, and you need to ski it to understand it. We’ve seen friends go from flat broke, couch-surfing dirtbags with active warrants to settled down, steadily employed, and talking about their 401(k) thanks to its hypnotic sorcery. At the same time, we’ve seen fine, upstanding citizens fall under its spell and abandon everything to follow storm cycles around the globe.

    At the risk of tearing a hole in the fabric of spacetime, we did the unthinkable last season and updated the Deathwish with our new aspen/ash core profile. The new core changed the way the ski feels across the board: it’s now more spirited and engaging when you’re just tooling around the mountain, and it has more top-end power and dampness to handle high-speed, aggressive skiing. If you’ve never tried it, now is the time. Beginner? Intermediate? Expert? It doesn’t matter. Once the Deathwish gets under your skin, the effect is permanent. It’ll surprise you with its ability to ski anything, anytime, anywhere, at any speed.

    Full length, knot free, vertically laminated in house. Our aspen/ash core provides a unique blend of liveliness and outstanding dampening, allowing for playful platforms that charge hard.
    Extruded sidewalls constructed of modified Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS) provide stiffness, dampening, durability. Allow for more impact resistance and easier repairs that stay put so you can bring the abuse year after year, season after season.
    A custom blend of triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber that provides torsional rigidity along with longitudinal pop and composure at speed.
    Skis are tools not treasures and that means they need to take a beating which is why use carbon infused sintered UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight PolyEthylene). Harder, faster and with better wax absorption and retention than extruded bases this is the industry leader for performance and longevity.
    2.2 EURO EDGE
    There are only a handful of edge manufacturers in the world. We go straight to the source for the best of the best. We use only 2.2mm Rockwell 48 hardened steel edges. Heat treated additionally in house to ensure you get nothing but the absolute most out of your skis.
