Billy Goat Skis embody one of those rare occurrences when everything seems to come together perfectly into a seamless package. The Billy Goats are the pinnacle of ON3P
's efforts to create an exceptional soft snow ski that still holds its own on the frontside when you need it to. Reverse Elliptical Sidecut creates a unique ride that makes quick work of hard conditions and refrozen crusts, while providing the skis with a level of playfulness and smearability like none other in the industry. A slight pintail allows the tail to sink in soft snow which aids in maneuverability in the trees and tight spots. Pivoty, stable, and exceptionally skiable are the adjectives that describe these truly one of a kind skis.
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.
43 cm tip rocker // 28 cm tail rocker
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.
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.
