Should I Ride the ARC or ARC-S?
The new ADVANCED ROCKER & CONCAVE
(ARC) is the culmination of a two-year pursuit of peak slalom ski
performance. A fresh, new direction in regards to ski width, rocker and
concave have led us to the greatest slalom ski design in the history of
the Denny Kidder brand.
No gimmicks, no gadgets, just the perfect hull shape.
Nate Smith - has this to say about his new ARC, “ With the ARC I am confident that increasing my World Record at 43 is only a matter of time …”
• Natural Radius Rocker Profile
Creates a tight radius turn that starts with ease and finishes completely.
• Aggressive Concave Depth
Allows the ARC to grab
powerful angle and cross course hold; giving the skier the ability to
add direction thru the wakes. The result- a ski that is faster and
earlier to the next buoy.
• Wider Forebody
Provides more support and course width without losing speed thru the turn. The ARC casts
outbound better than any ski D3 has ever produced.
• Tip to tail bevel design
bevel assembly of the ARC stays consistent from tip to tail to allow a
smooth precise water flow. This keeps the ski moving even when
aggressively attacking the shortest line lengths.
• 45/45 Carbon Fiber Laminate Layup
unique layup allows the ARC to recover from the massive loads of short
line turns. This keeps the ARC stable and predictable to maximize cross
course direction out of the turns.
• Power Flex Pattern
A flex pattern with unparalleled consistency means the harder you push the ARC the better it responds.
ARC or ARC-S?
The ARC comes in two flexes – the ARC & ARC-S.
The ARC is our standard flex designed for the skier in the middle to upper end of the suggested weight range for each ski size.
The ARC-S has a
slightly softer flex from the front binding forward. The softer front
flex of the ARC-S allows the front of ski to create a tighter arc while
the back of the ski maintains the speed of the standard ARC. If you are
looking to ride a larger ski for your height or you are on the lighter
side for a particular size ski, we recommend you ride the ARC-S. If you
like the feel of the front of the ski finishing with more load, we
recommend you ride the ARC-S.
Rockerblock R-30 - Is standard equipment on all ARC slalom skis. The success of the Rockerblock
has carried D3 to World Slalom Records. Its natural radius delivers a
complete finish to both the on-side and the off-side turns.
64”, 65”, 66”, 67”, 68" ship date TBD
The D3 production facility located in Ellensburg, Washington USA is
“state of the art” in every way. Each ski is carefully inspected and
must pass strict criteria for rocker, flex, weight and flat spot before
it receives a serial #. All D3 skis are documented and filed under their
born-on-date and serial #.
All D3 skis now come with an insert hole pattern that accommodate both D3 and HO binding plates.
HO EXO Bar System requires adapter plates.
**All D3 skis are also available with no binding inserts for velcro applications**
