Fick en pressrelease från Spy. Nya Platoon är kanske lite väl stor för min smak, men svårt att säga innan man provat dom själv. Linser från/med Carl Zeiss kan dock bli riktigt bra.




Vintage is the future. For the 2011/12 season, we've got new goggles, new colors, a new approach…it's safe to say this is the new s#!t!

Come check it all out at SIA January 27-30th at SPY+ booth 3707 in Denver, CO.

We added a new member to the family! The all-new Platoon, the biggest, cleanest and most modern SPY+ snow goggle comes with a free bonus lens. Combining patented Scoop® ventilation in an oversized fit and precise optics by Carl Zeiss Vision, the Platoon keeps you looking fresh and seeing clearly.

SPY+ has collaborated with world-renowned Optics by Carl Zeiss Vision, who is the best in class when it comes to optical expertise. This SPY+ lens program provides superior optical performance, clarity and toughness for lens tints and mirrors in all light conditions. Yes, your vision will thank you.


Keep your eye out for SPY+'s collaboration with the artist Push and the Seventh Letter Crew, one of many amazing Platoon models.

This year's SPY+ line contains an artist series as well as signature pro models.

The premium artist series includes TSL+PUSH, Skinner, Danny Larsen and Darrell Mathes.

Snackade med en kille från Nordica och de ska tydligen komma med något jäääävligt fräscht!

Både Oakley och Dragon gogglarna var feta, synd att jag köpte nya nyss och åker mindre och mindre skidor.

Tack Utter, som om man inte redan hade beslutsångest över årets modeller ;)
Önskar min Franska var bättre, någon som orkar översätta lite?

^^ Grymt häftiga!
Som vanligt råder det inget tvivel om att de kommer vara grymma i lössnö, menar konvex bas måste ju vara optimalt för rent puder. Däremot riktigt intressant om "spoonen" kan skapa kant kontakt på hårdare snö, visst vad kan man förvänta sig med en midja på 150 mm, men kan det bli bättre än en ren R/R skida är det guld.

Personligen köper jag nog inga fler R/R lagg, tycker helt enkelt inte att det är värt att vrida anklarna av sig så fort underlaget blir lite hårdare eller på väg tillbaka i pisten, om jag inte börjar köra många fler höjdmeter med helikopeter hjälp (ligger på 0 m för tillfället, så kan bara bli bättre...).

Äntligen! Här är lite bilder. Finns fler bilder på DPS facebookgrupp...


Marshal skrev lite på TGR, jag klipper in det här:

Marshal sa:
"...this design has been in the works for a year and a half, and its really cool to see a skiable example of it. stoked to test it in the next bit, once the tradeshow circuit slows down.

the ski is designed to really promote super high edge angle powder skiing with out seeing drag and reduced speeds from snow contact on your leg from loosing the plane. when a flat-base ski gets higher and higher edge angle , the amouint of float gets lower and lower. this spoon shape starts to engage at the point that a normal flat ski starts to dive. and then keeps going... so like really from dragging your hip in pow super powerful GS type deal.

aside from that, the goal was to open up a totally news style of drifting into and railing/carving super cleanly out of turns and terrain features.

the cleats were added to enabe the ski to be somewhat controlable on runouts. it is pretty different from magnetraction where you are trying to gain edge grip by undulating in and out. the cleats go down to add a small level of stability and edge so a fully convex base will change direction and slow down etc on 2dimensional snow. as it is now, you will not be carving turns. if there were no cleats, the ski would be in essance a death trap. ~20deg base effective bevel otherwise.

this ski shape is based around a lotus 138 + 12mm. full rocker (reverse camber). 192cm. his particular ski was built in eden utah in the engineers garage. it is not ready for retail production, but the tech will see trickle down in the future, is the goal. once the amount of base convexity and positioning and amount of cleats and height of cleats etc is finalized.

base prep out of the mold is a pain, but once that is done, tuning is straight forward actually. far easier to wax etc than i thought they might be. hand prep the base. really no biggie. flat enough to mount bindings without issue upderfoot.

stephan sees this as being the future of powder skiing, based on his testing of it the past 2 days, and well... going by how it looks in my hand, i am inclined to agree... but i have not skied them yet. these skis literally came out of the mold 4-5 days ago."
Jag hoppas på ett teståk om 2 veckor. Återkommer i ärendet! :D

Ähe, men vafan... Antar att Dps vet vad de håller på med, men om inte kommer det där att bli en klassiker.
