What kind of sidecut do you suggest?
The shorter the radius the better! ; )

I really like a radius around 15-16m for telemark... In fact, I would really like to have a ski with a 13-14m radius, but they don't do it in 185cm...

Thanks for that! That guy's got great looking products and some skills too. Innovation without a huge industrial process. Nice.

Great vid thanks for sharing. Bruce would love a pair of those, just longer.

As for my monikor I've used it for years, long before I met the KTB crew.

WOW! + WANT!!!!

I'd take a 185cm wood ski w/pink natural stain, single camber, 70mm with a 15m radius. With those funky twin tips to make sure the young girls/lonely bearettes notice me in the woods. And oh, under 2kg a pair if possible please...! 8-)

A-MAZ-ING GFWP!

Holy smokes - they really sell those! A Daffy! I'm totally sold... that put me right back to 1994 on skis that look like they are from the 40's and carve like something from this century.
