Second Opinion 118

6999 SEK 4900 SEK

Big-mountain Test Winner 2017/18 in the Swedish ski magazine Åka Skidor with rewards like “One of the better skis for drifting and it holds as good in higher speeds.”

Opinion 118 is also the world’s first community-developed ski, created with the help of hundreds of dedicated skiers in forum thread with 1.900 member posts, over 1.000.000 visits and one year of development. For this, the model was awarded the international and prestigious ISPO Gold Award 2014/15.

To this winter, we have further developed the construction by making it 15 % lighter, more playful and therefore renamed it Second Opinion. The ski is very all-round for being such a wide ski, but prefers powder, tracked powder or spring snow. A ski for your best days of the winter.

Second Opinion 118 is constructed as light as possible without using carbon fibre (1950 g at 187 cm). The skis are made out of snappy poplar wood and very light paulownia wood, in combination with the ultra-light aerospace material Tubecomb in tip and tail for lowest possible swing weight. The harmonious tapered tip and tail, combined with the long low-rise rocker profile, creates fantastic floatation in powder and makes them easy to manoeuvre in all conditions.
