Scott The Ski (2014)

Scott The Ski (2014)
Official Selection 2014
Tester's Review

Smooth, smooth, and smooth (and smooth). The Ski, a nod to hotdog hero Bobbie Burns’s sagebrush-cored ’70s model of the same name, is, as one tester put it, “a beautiful skiing experience.” It’s so mellow and non-jittery—like the old, dependable friend who somehow never picked up the coffee habit—that the stunning grip of its locked-in carves comes as a bit of a surprise. Don’t expect to pop out of turns; do expect to pour like syrup over any terrain feature.

Skiing's Notes:
Scott's The Ski is a new model that reaches back into the annals of skiing heritage. The Ski was originally a model developed by freestyle skiing pioneer Bobbie Burns, who lives in Sun Valley, where Scott USA is based. This tribute version uses the original graphic but is a contemporary design, with an elliptical (or humped) top sheet that saves weight while stiffening torsional rigidity. But under the top sheet it's a laminate construction - not cap - with a wood core milled in an arch-topped shape. It's designed to be a soft-flexing, forgiving, all-mountain generalist (the shortened sidewalls below the arched top give it a less aggressive edge bite than full-sidewall skis). Tip rocker absorbs terrain shocks and adds soft-snow flotation. Scott's 3D Sidecut breaks the ski into three sections, with a straighter section underfoot and traditionally deep sidecut radii in the tip and tail. This is designed to improve stability at speed and give the ski a playful easy-pivoting feel. The Ski features a new version of 3Dimension sidecut, with a section of long-radius (rather than straight-line) sidecut.
