Skis are a funny business. They are a combination of what one might consider mere mechanical construction, yet they are also part art. A portion of that is certainly due to the delight we experience when shussing through the snow, but the real magic is how ski designers can take what are essentially a common set of ingredients and combine them in such a way that every design is unique, like songs that rely on the same notes, but are infinitely variable. And the song some skis sing is magical.
G3’s FINDr is one of those skis that starts out steady and solid, gaining your confidence before you dare to turn ‘em loose. When you do, they fairly leap into action, goading you along with a playful pop at the end of each turn that has the net effect of encouraging you to rev the engine and give ‘er a little more gas.
