The Kingfisher is a quick, responsive ski with more tip and tail rise than other birds in the Parlor flock. With its bigger rocker profile, the Kingfisher smooths out the bumps, crud, and slush and allows quick maneuverability in the trees. Coming back on piste, let the slight traditional camber take over and settle into long slalom or tight GS turns with confidence, even on the hard stuff. When it snows, the Kingfisher's wider platform and tip rocker lets it dance quick turns on the surface. If speed is your preference, just sit back and enjoy the float. 

The Kingfisher is available in both 105 and 95 millimeter widths. We recommend the wider platform to anyone who prefers a wider-waisted ski, prioritizes softer snow skiing, or will use it as a backcountry ski. We recommend the narrower platform for better performance on groomers or harder snow.

camber profile

Camber describes the bottom profile of the ski and is a significant design factor.

rocker tip & tail w/ traditional camber underfoot

Traditional camber means an upward curve in the middle of a ski, with the contact points at the tip and tail. The rider's weight puts pressure on the edge from tip to tail, resulting in increased edgehold and better "pop".

flex

To help provide the best fit possible Parlor makes each ski in three flexes: soft, medium and stiff. Flex is determined through height/weight and skier style. The right flex allows a skier to access all of the contact points and performance of the ski: so the skier controls the ski and not the other way around. Medium is the default choice and appropriate for most riders.

lay-up options

The laminates are the main structural component of our skis. All of our custom graphic skis come with the option of a frontside or backcountry lay up.

Frontside:

Built with three layers of Vectorply triaxial fiberglass, this lay up prioritizes dampness and stability while still maintaining a low swing weight.

Backcountry:

Built with two layers of Vectorply triaxial fiberglass and two layers of carbon fiber skrim, this lay up is lighter in weight for those who like to spend some time going up hill. The carbon also gives the ski a bit of added pop.
