The ON3P Cease & Desist Skis are the ultimate downhill powder chargers. High speeds and waist deep snow are what these bad boys thirst for. Built with ON3P’s Reverse Elliptical Sidecut (RES), the Cease & Desist delivers incredible float and rock-solid stability at speed, yet is highly maneuverable for great performance in trees and tight spaces. Its Elliptical Rocker Profile provides one progressively changing elliptical arc, ensuring that the skis never dive and enables you to dump speed or change direction instantly. A fat waist and stiff flex makes these skis a weapon of big mountain destruction.
Elliptical Rocker Profile The rocker profile and tip shape are combined into one progressively changing elliptical arc, which allows the tips to plane faster in powder, deflect less in variable snow, and helps the effective edge running within the rocker length to engage in a more natural, effortless way.

Reverse Elliptical Sidecut (RES) RES combines the best of both words - skis with RES have all the advantages of increased float, maneuverability, and shredability exhibited by many of the completely reverse sidecut skis on the market, but does so without sacrificing edge hold, stability, and hardpack performance, creating a ski that is truly ready to take you wherever you want to go.
Bamboo Core The heart of every pair of ON3P skis is the vertically laminated, 100% bamboo core. Bamboo provides a responsive, yet damp characteristic to ON3P skis that we have grown to love. The ON3P core shape gives the ski strength where it needs it, better for resisting warping and breakage. Bamboo is also a quick growing, environmentally-friendly grass.
Tour Layup A redesigned, thinner core profile supported with additional layers of full-width carbon fiber means the Cease & Desist keeps the weight down for a ski its size.
Extra Wide Binding Mat An additional layer of fiberglass mat provides increased screw retention and prevents pullouts. To ensure proper coverage for all types of hole patterns, ON3P extends this mat to nearly full width on every ski they make.
Tri-Axial Fiberglass 19 oz or 22 oz Tri-axial Fiberglass provides torsional stiffness, ensuring edge hold and power transfer.
Unidirectional Carbon Stringer Each ski incorporates unidirectional carbon around the core, adding pop, stiffness, and dampness without any significant increase in weight.
UHMW Sidewalls and Tip Spacers Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene is an incredibly strong material, has a higher abrasion resistance than steel, and resists cracking (unlike ABS).
1.8 mm 4001 Durasurf Sintered Base ON3P Durasurf 4001 base material provides their skis with better glide and protection from damage compared to other sintered and extruded base material, and is 38% thicker than the industry standard.
2.5 mm x 2.5 mm Extra Thick Edges ON3P uses a 3/4 wrap for their 2.5 mm x 2.5 mm Rockwell 48C steel edges. The 3/4 wrap allows the tips and tails of the skis to flex, decreasing the risk of delamination.
VDS (Vibration Dampening Strips) VDS rubber is applied to the edges & sidewalls, acting as a shear layer that provides improved bonding strength and vibration dampening.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about ON3P Cease & Desist Skis 2015:
I have skied atop many a powder ski - S7s, S3s, Bent Chetlers, JJs, Chopstix, Kuros, Caylors, One (and some other) Lifes, YLES, Alibis, Shoguns, Hellbents, and Wrenegades to name a few - and for the best snow, the ON3P Cease and Desist is the best. In deep, untracked snow, deep tracked over powder-cakes, and deep crud, there is none better; however, these are not an everyday ski. That curvaceous sidecut that performs so well in deep snow lacks terribly on hardpack, and on ice is just scary. When it dumps though, these are the sticks you want binded to your feet. Rock solid in the air and on landings, each turn flows into the next with an ease that because of the sensation and appearance of the ski I can only imagine is because of the water-ski like shape.
