YES x Parlor
We could not have been more excited when Joe Wardwell called us and asked if we wanted to team up to make a ski together. We have always been a fan of his work and his bright color palette and ability to work on an size pallet made this an amazing opportunity. We all agreed quickly that we wanted to include a charitable element to this ski and we felt that YES was the perfect partner, given that the are also local to boston and that we all believe that sliding on snow is something that should be shared with everyone.
20% of the sale of these skis will be donated directly to YES.
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.
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.
Built with three layers of Vectorply triaxial fiberglass, this lay up prioritizes dampness and stability while still maintaining a low swing weight.
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.
