Technical info:
Eric Pollard´s new promo model will probably be a new and exciting concept for young riders, although split-tail skis is no novelty. This split is relatively deep and the ski doesn´t have rocker in the back. It has a lot of rocker in the front though. A lot of camber and plenty of sidecut in the front ski. Considering the brand, this is a striking asymmetrical design. The wood veneer lies between the fibre glass and the plastic top sheet, which means that it only serves decorative purposes.

On snow:
It´s perfect for dense Norwegian forest skiing. Pollard claims to have been inspired by snowboards when designing this ski. We can spot other elements from the history of skis as well. It is a little unstable on hard snow, but as one rider commented: What do you expect? It is a true joy in the turns, you may think you are surfing. The ski feels stable, despite the weight and length. It´s no big mountain ski, but cruising in powder is pure fun.
