Adirondack snoskishoe
« on: March 27, 2016, 06:50:31 pm »
I went ahead and have these in the works for next season:


Construction:
 
Vertical laminated core of Vermont hardwoods (ash and maple) under the binding screws and poplar in areas that don’t require screws with maple sidewalls for durability.

It will get a 4001 grade sintered P-tex base and a 1/42” veneer maple top sheet with biaxial fiberglass on top.
 
This will all be laminated with Entropy resins Epoxy and pneumatically pressed into a mold with a 45 cm rocker tip and an 8-10 cm tail flair. It will have slight camber underfoot of 2-4mm.

Interesting
As a skier I don't know how I'd handle something that wide tho, on the downhill slide my feet would be much further apart than my shoulder width

Looking awesome!!  My only concern, is the fiberglass bottom... You need to explain the need for that!!

We changed the base layer to a 4001 grade sintered P-tex.

Same here, Kaifus.  Whatever was linked there certainly does sound interesting.  This picture or video link needs to be checked for proper sharing permissions.

Update:

The cores are done and have 17 individual wood stingers and are 145 mm wide. They will get shaped and profiled in later steps. The outer stringer on maple will be the sidewalk of the ski.

From center outward either way symmetrically :ash center, maple, ash, poplar, ash, poplar, poplar, maple, maple.

They did it this way to make them strong and to use up some of the thinner, but no less in quality, stock they had leftover from work for some alpine skis' and cost savings...

don't know how I missed this one... looks interesting
are they going to get thinned to 4 mm? and shaped, not bent..?

what's the cost, if you don't mind? and how are these different from Hocks?
