Yes, with dimensions of 149/129/134 and a turning radius of 33.1 meters in the 193cm length, you guessed it - this is Chuck Norris' powder ski. Designed for stability on huge powder fields at mach whatever, but with enough maneuverability to let you shut it down in an emergency, the ON3P Cease and Desist Skis have enough rocker to float in any snow at any depth and still let you get a grip on hardpack due to their combination of torsional stiffness and traditional sidecut in the tails. Hard chargers who live for pow days will want this ski in their quiver.
Elliptical Rocker Profile Rocker profile and tip shape are combined into one progressively changing elliptical arc, allowing the tips to plane faster in powder, deflect less in variable snow, and help the edge engage more naturally.
Stiff A powerful ski meant for hard charging or heavier skiers
Reverse Elliptical Sidecut Reverse Elliptical Sidecut (RES) is a large, convex elliptical arc that runs from boot center to tip taper. With no traditional sidecut in the tips, the skis resist hooking or catching in soft snow and give the skier the freedom to choose any turn shape they wish at any speed.
Dynamic Contact Zone ON3P's Reverse Elliptical Sidecut (RES) tightens as it approaches the tips, creating a Dynamic contact Zone (DCZ) that, when on edge, creates a simulated turn radius with the traditional sidecut tail. This results in excellent edge hold on harder snow. The elliptical design maximizes the length of the contact zone when edging, comparable to that of a traditional sidecut ski.
Bamboo Core ON3P skis use a vertically laminated, 100% bamboo core. Bamboo is a quick-growing, environmentally-friendly grass that provides a responsive but very damp feel when used as a ski core.
Unidirectional Carbon Stringer Each ON3P ski incorporates unidirectional carbon around the core, adding pop, stiffness and dampness without significant weight increase.
UHMW Sidewalls UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) Polyethylene has incredible impact resistance, a higher resistance to abrasion than steel, and resists cracking.
Durasurf 4001 Bases Better glide and abrasion resistance than other sintered or extruded base material. ON3P uses base material that is 38% thicker than the industry standard for better durability.
Rockwell 48C Steel Edges ON3P uses 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm Rockwell 48C Hardness Steel edges for durability. Edges are applied in a 3/4 wrap, which allows the tip and tail to flex more naturally and decreases the risk of delamination.
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about ON3P Cease and Desist Skis 2013:
I finally bought a pair of these beasts after salivating over them since they first came out. Having a lot of other skis in my quiver, I have only pulled these things out of the deepest of days. No complaints whatsoever. I like to ski fast and drop stuff when possible, and put simply, they are everything I want in a powder ski. The early tapered tip makes turning them in deep snow (both blower and NW cement) so incredibly fun, easy, and intuitive. It feels like waterskiing, you just lean and get the best feeling turn ever, usually with a massive faceshot to boot. They are burly enough to charge, super stable in the air and on landings, and more fun to ski pow on than any other ski I have owned. I have had Hellbents, S7s, Bentchetlers, Elan Boomerangs, ON3P Wrenegades, ON3P Caylors, and demoed many other pow skis. This ski, hands down, is the best pow ski I have had. I would say they ski most similarly to the S7s or Bentchetlers, probably because of the early tapering, but feel like a version of them on steroids. The only negative thing I can say about these is that they arent good on hard snow. That being said, they are more than managable, just not ideal for those conditions. I would seriously reccomend this ski to anybody looking for a deep powder tool. ON3P makes awesome skis, I currently own 3 different pairs (these, Wrenegades, and Caylors). All of them have bombproof construction and are awesome skis. So buy these if you want to have the best time skiing deep snow of your life.
Comments about ON3P Cease and Desist Skis 2013:
With a great name and story behind it, the Cease and Desist is a premier big pow ski from ON3P. Extremely solid for their size, I was only able to jump on these in week old groomer conditions. Being initially cautious on such a fat ski on hard pack, that uneasiness quickly wore off. They like to point and go and felt fairly stable when given some speed. Going from edge to edge was easier than I expected and they did carve well enough. I would have loved to have a foot plus of fresh pow to play with, as I can imagine there would be no possible way to sink them. These skis are definitely at the top of my list to demo on a big pow day!
