Technical info:
The American ON3P is new on the Norwegian market. This year´s version of Billygoat, a name they have used for some time now, is a relatively powerful construction with an unusual special sidecut geometry. The front ski is in fact completely straight, and there is a lot of sidecut in the middle. Billygoat has equal amounts of taper in the front and back ski, and there is a lot of rocker in both ends. The camber is low.

On snow:
This ski feels heavy on the foot. The shape suggests playfulness, but this is not the case when on snow. At the same time, and despite the heavy weigh, it didn´t feel stable. Some of the test riders thought it was difficult to maneuver at high speed as some control was lost over the front ski, especially on hard snow. As one rider pointed out: “It´s a heavy ski that requires an attentive rider”. However, it has one very positive feature: It´s a landing platform on soft snow.
