Show Description

A stiffened up version of the Neo, the Superneo has the same sidecut and rocker profile but uses carbon fiber/kevlar to add stiffness, ability to transfer power, and readiness to charge. Every pair of Foon Skis is handcrafted in Mount Currie, BC and is milled from a single piece of Coast Mountain yellow cedar. This tight-grained wood is unique in the way it absorbs vibration to provide a daaamp, stable ride. Unlike most wood core skis, Foon uses a kiln-dried, solid 2in. board rather than layers of glued strips. It allows the natural flex of the wood to transmit to the skier. Like a custom surfboard, Foon skis are hand-shaped and hand-built to optimize the sidecut, base profile and flex profile.

  • Sandwich construction blends carbon fiber, kevlar, yellow cedar with a Durasurf 4001 graphite black base.
  • Yellow cedar core, made from a single board that's split in two to make a pair of identical cores. Yellow cedar grows only in the Pacific northwest, so if that's where you ride, ride with a slice of the mountain.
  • Core profile is shaped so the power and balance point is at the ball of the foot to maximize feel and control.
  • Active Rocker Technology creates a variable rocker that allows your skis to ride long and stable and short and nimble when the turns get tight, and to smooth the way through transitions.
  • Early rise tip and tail with a short, but pronounced camber for a vibrant, lively ride.
