Product Info

As much as we wish every day was a pow day, that's sadly not the case. For those less then ideal days, Icelandic slimmed down their all mountain shredder, the Shaman, to give you the Icelantic Shaman SKNY Skis. Slimmed down by 20mm underfoot for quicker edge to edge on piste, the Shaman SKNY is a true all mountain destroyer. Icelandic made sure to keep the diamond shaved shovel for flotation. torsional rigidty and tapered design that create the unparalleled Shaman turns you know and love.

    Comments about Icelantic Shaman SKNY Skis 2014:

    Only one day on the Shaman SKNY so far, spent the day on the frontside with afternoon ice along with some hard bumps through the day, nothing off trail yet. In short, these aren't made to playfully "jib" or "butter"- they are designed to target and destroy anything in your path and offer the grip and confidence to do it at pretty much any speed. No slipping on even on our Midwest bulletproof/manmade ice and plowed through piles of built up corn at the end of the day without skipping a beat. Put the edge down for medium carvers or in a split second change your mind and string out quick slalom turns and the SKNY was happy to oblige. Very smooth with no chatter, maybe a bit on the damp side at slower speeds. Held its own in the bumps as well, probably not for someone looking for an aggressive/fast zipper line bump ski – but still serviceable and very predictable. Amazing workmanship, received too many comments to count on how cool these they look on the snow (I agree).

      Comments about Icelantic Shaman SKNY Skis 2014:

      You need to see these in person to truly appreciate the craftsmanship. These defiantly turn heads and are easily distinguished by the unique shovel. The ride was excellent. You can really trust these to grip hard pack for those tight turns and do pretty well in powder. They really tend to come alive at high speeds. These are defiantly geared more toward shallow powder and hard packs groomers, but if you were worried about floatation you wouldn't be looking at the SKNY version. If there is one things these skis are not is playful. These are for charging something head on.

      Comments about Icelantic Shaman SKNY Skis 2014:

      Demo'ed these skis in March and loved them so much I bought them. Haven't gotten a chance to ski them in any deep stuff yet, but for a daily driver here on the New Hampshire ice they work great. Narrow and soft tail lets you exit turns and has good snap for ollies while the wide, stiff nose locks you in on any terrain. More playful and fun than my G3's or Coombacks.

      ...this is the ugliest ski I've ever owned, but its hideousness now only seems to add to its charm...
