You know that guy or gal in your age group you wanted to beat all last season? Maybe the problem was that you were on the wrong skis. We stock some of the most popular "cheater" skis used in NASTAR and Beer League Racing today. They're called cheaters because they don't conform to the absurd FIS regulations. Happily you're not bound by those restrictions. These skis allow recreational racers like you to easily initiate a turn without feeling like you're manhandling an 18 wheeler. Clicking on any of the skis below will show you the minimum advertised price. If you register for racer discounts, you'll be emailed instructions for obtaining racer pricing. Check out these winners!
Fischer Progressor 10+. Once in a while a ski comes along that captures a niche. The Progressor 10 has been embraced by Beer League and NASTAR skiers everywhere. The front half of the ski has a tighter radius than the tail. That's a great combination if you find yourself late at a gate. You can make a last second correction without hooking up like you might on a slalom ski. Coming out of the turn will leave you with a sweeping GS turn to the next gate. Binding included.
The Elan GSX WaveFlex is a lightning-fast machine, designed for expert to professional GS racers. Delivering top performance at every turn, this model boasts with the World Cup proven WaveFlex technology, RST sidewalls and special Dual Titanium reinforcements for enhanced edge control and superior responsiveness. Binding included.
The Radcal 8GS Cascade is a recreational GS ski for technical skiers seeking power and stablility with excellent ski-to-snow contact in long radius turns. New Cascade tip improves swing weight and full edge contact. The 8GS uses a sandwich construction with Oversize technology to improve the skis versatility and ease of turning. Binding included
Made of a proprietary composite sintered base material, Speedwall sidewalls are the latest in a long line of innovations from Völkl's race department. The new Racetiger GS Speedwall features a new shape and vertical sidewall construction to deliver an incredibly fast, yet comfortable ride for the expert skier and night league racer alike. The new rMotion binding system combines race plate technology with the Motion system's all-mountain versatility. Binding included.
Atomic's non-FIS carving machine will put you on the podium. This is the beer league and NASTAR answer. Comes with the Neox NTL 12 binding. The D2 Race GS is the most successful GS ski at the Alpine Ski World Cup. Key to its success is the innovative Doubledeck technology, which combines two freely gliding decks to create a unique ski. The upper Control Deck distributes the power generated by the skier directly to the softer Adapter (lower) Deck, which is responsible for optimum edge grip. Long turns can be efficiently carved on the edge even at high speeds, while vibrations are effectively absorbed. Making it the perfect ski for performance-driven skiers with a preference for wider turns. Binding included.
