Gear West: Classic Skis and Correlation to Flex Data

Flex data Doug Debold’s 2013 winning Birkie classic ski.

At Gear West we have a strong understanding of flex data and how it relates to glide properties of skate skis. Looking at classic skis has been more involved because there are more variables compared to skating, both kick and glide.

We take the gathered flex data and draw a parallel to how the ski actually performs on the trails.
