Virtually guaranteed to put a smile on your face, the Aski Verglas is stable, precise, and confidence inspiring in variable conditions and steep terrain. A carving skiers dream, the Verglas probably could hold an edge on glass. The skis are built with a skeleton of thermoplastic infused with carbon to make a strong ski with a buttery feel. Tip and tail rocker keeps it above soft snow while dynamic camber secures a great edge hold. Aski skis err on the side of performance, but the company managed to make them light enough to get our attention. The Verglas is a rocket ship that will take you to new places.
- Thermoplastic Carbon shell offers an amazingly damp ride (and not just for a light ski).
- Polymeric blended core with high elastic modulus to help create a uniform flex.
- Carbon/Kevlar base sheet provides protection from impact and speed.
- Spatula shaped tip with double rocker helps you stay above pow and crud.
- Dual camber design makes it surprisingly agile and reliable on firm snow.
- Excellent stability on bumpy snow and edge hold on marble.
Update 2018/19: The skis have updated graphics with more eye-pop. Same damp feel and rocket-like properties.

Questions & Reviews
Why in the world did they choose such a wide tip notch, classic race tips attachments don't work, you have to buy ski trab's.
Despite wearing my brand new (and still not properly fitted) skimo race boots it took me 2 turns to figure out how to ski them - any way I wanted to. From long high speed turns to short wiggles in tight aspen trees I was absolutely amazed. The snow was good (soft powder) so I cannot speak to how they would ski crust but I have never skied such responsive and stable planks. I skied the 176cm version (I am 186cm).
The price is definitely little higher than I like to pay for skis but I am going to try to save up over the summer to pull the trigger for next season. After all, skis define so much of our experience in the mountains.
Test them out and be ready to fall in love.
