DESCRIPTION:

Shape: All Mountain Mid Fat

A ballad is a poem of musical quality, sometimes set to music. It is narrative in nature; this means that it tells a story. This name reflects the poetic inspiration and elegance of the ski while also hinting at the balance and versatility described in its features. PoetSkis Ballad invites a rhythmic flow so you can tell your story with lyrical delight down the mountain.

The Ballad is a playful all-round ski with an undeniable powder bias. Playful and versatile, the full Tri-Axial laminate layer (Carbon Fibre or Fibreglass) is stiff enough, edge to edge, to carve fiercely on the groomed trails, yet wide and smooth enough to float over pillows. The straight-grain AAA Grade Poplar wood core and pressed eco resins create a soulful feel underfoot. A layer of VDS ("Vibration Dampening System”) rubber is added for balanced dampening, and a responsive hybrid camber creates snappy snow surfing boards that are ready for anything. They sport an elongated nose and tail with subtle early-rise camber to keep you afloat while remaining stable when you need it most. These skis are built for speed, offering a stable platform that thrives on velocity. A modest waist with symmetrical flex makes them an excellent choice as your daily driver freeride ski.
