We designed an aluminum body, for a better aerodynamic and reduced weight. The prototype ski passed compression testing up to 4000 lbs right on pedestal.
With both ends supported (21” between supports), it flex 1/4” when 1850 lbs pressure is applied at mounting pedestal. This means the skis will absorb shock from bumps.
Following popular requests, we have designed this ski to run with the plane's nose wheel.
The ski mount on the nose wheel shaft.
