The ON3P Billy Goat Skis have been ON3P's best selling model and the pinnacle of their efforts to create the ultimate directional soft snow ski. The Reverse Elliptical Sidecut (RES) and Elliptical Rocker Profile provide the Billy Goat with exceptional soft snow performance and a long effective edge that maintains stability at speed and solid performance on the groomed when you need it. This is the go-to ski for many of the people who work at ON3P, which says a lot.
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 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, giving complete turn shape freedom at any speed.
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.
Tri-Axial Fiberglass 19 oz or 22 oz Tri-axial Fiberglass provides torsional stiffness, ensuring edge hold and power transfer.
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.
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 skies 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 48 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.

Comments about ON3P Billy Goat Skis 2014:
The Billy's are directional chargers that are here to be skied hard. I feel the 191 length is why this ski was built. If you like to ski switch pick up something else. If you like to charge from bell to bell then pick up a pair and see for yourself.
