The Buck Naked
What is going on with the tail on those skis.... This very well might be the theme of many of your ski days if you are lucky enough to get a pair of the BUCK NAKEDs. We are calling the tail Striper Tech and it is the first convex or surfing inspired tail to hit the ski market.
The birth of the Buck Naked started last spring when we sat down with Harrison Buck, our man in Aspen and Parlor Ambassador. We set out to design a new ski for him that was both a powder ski and a daily driver for the bigger lines and open bowls he loves to ski.
During the design phase, we focused on three distinct design elements to make this ski unique and different from the other wide skis in the Parlor line up. First we added camber. This was a must for Harrison to provide him with the ability to push hard and fast in the crud. Then we focused on the tips. This ski has a distinct wide and boxy nose which makes attaching skins a breeze, helps the skis plane in soft snow, and bust the crud when it presents itself. The tail of the ski is the first of its kind and where the magic happens. Having a convex cut away tail shaped like the tail of a fish surfboard allows the loose feeling of a pin tail ski, but allows enough flotation to sit back and stop the tail to get you out of trouble. Plus it just looks plain sexy.
With art from @sortaintersting and a dark stained sidewall, these skis are sure to grab as much attention in the lift line as they do when you are shredding the gnar!

On our semi custom skis we use a standard flex pattern, which is appropriate for most skiers. The flex pattern for this ski has been designed to match the overall design of this ski and to provide a smooth and responsive feel for the ski
The laminates are the main structural component of our skis. All of our semi custom skis come with our frontside lay up. Built with three layers of Vectorply triaxial fiberglass, this lay up prioritizes dampness and stability while still maintaining a low swing weight.
