THE MOST CUSTOMIZABLE SKI EVER

Introducing, a flagship ski brand new for 2021, the DV8. Featuring patent pending VersaTail technology, this is the most customizable ski ever. Welcome to a new dimension in fine tuning.

Throughout the years, brands have been on a quest to create a ski that checks all the boxes. Yet because skiers have varying styles and skill sets, the one-shape-fits-all approach doesn’t always pan out for everyone.

With the DV8 and VersaTail, you choose how your ski rides and reacts

WHAT IS VERSATAIL?

While considerable masterminding is put into the overall construction of a high-end slalom ski — the sidecut, rocker, bevels, etc — many people don’t realize how large a part the last few inches of the tail play. A change in tail geometry can mean the difference in a ski performing in perfect rhythm with your personal style. Our patent pending VersaTail technology offers the ability to fine tune the flow of water off the tail of the ski, taking a step beyond the standard fin and binding position adjustments. Skiers can choose from one of three tails, which are all included with the DV8.

Tail Options (all Included)

VT: Our stock tail shape — designed to offer a balanced tail depth through the turn and across the wake.
VSThe square tail provides more support at the tail, keeping the tip down through the turn and generating more speed between the buoys.
VRThe round tail lets the ski sit deeper in the water into the turn, adding control at higher speeds for quicker turns and reduced tail blowouts.

Although the DV8 is built with the same building blocks as our other high-end slalom skis (think GT-R, GT, Prophecy, etc), it was formulated with its own unique makeup. Between an increased rocker line, more subtle top shape, softer flex and customizable tail shapes, the DV8 requires less perfection on your part and is the most forgiving ski we’ve ever created.

RockerThe DV8 has an increased rocker line, predominantly in the tail, allowing it to move from one edge out to the other much easier.
Capt TopWe have gone with a more subtle top shape, particularly in the tip, to add support and control out of the turn. This creates a more balanced system, working together with the softer flex pattern and increased tail rocker.
Flex Pattern: We have softened the flex pattern throughout the ski to work in concert with the new top shape and rocker line. The result? A more forgiving ski all-together.

Features

+ Low density, CNC cut PVC core - A tried and true core material, cut to utter perfection that has proved itself on the top end ski's for years, a high quality material that is lighter and stiffer than it's PU counterpart creating greater feel and response in your ski.
+ 90/10 carbon/fiberglass layup - Carbon is extremely light and super responsive. We combine that with 10% fiberglass which dampens vibration, making slight chop feel like butter and drastically increasing the life of your ski.
+ C.A.P.T. (Connelly Advanced Profile Technology) - Using geometry to influence and control the flex pattern to create a lighter, quicker and steadier ride.
+ Hybrid base - polished tip, micro-textured tail
+ Speed V-Tech - V-Tech adapted for a faster moving ski. Curves in the “V” shaped steps disrupt more flow in the centre of the tunnel and less along the edge. This reduces overall drag while maintaining edge hold.
+ Wide tunnel - This tunnel design leaves an extremely narrow flat spot between the edge of the tunnel and the bevel of the ski. The effect is a ski that actively seeks to be on edge and is most useful for experienced skiers and buoy chasers that have above average ski control.
+ Viper 2.0 – Forget having to tap and move your fin only to have those perfect setting lost whilst tightening the screws, the Viper 2.0 lets you accurately adjust the tolerances getting you closer to that new PB.
+ Variable bevel - A sharper bevel through to the front binding of the ski that transitions to a round bevel in the tail, allows to provide lift and speed in the tip across the wash, while the tail provides suction for tight turns for the apex of your cut or around the buoy
