As a team member I was able to tour the factory last year when I was in town for the BroHo BigDawg and it did not disappoint. As part of the test team I had a good idea as to what went into building a D3 ski but when I saw the full process and how well the details are managed I was really impressed. I am glad Horton went to see it and that he was able to post those videos.

Did I miss something?

Sorry for the Language.... Hope it is understandable anyway.

 

Was there any fiber wraped around the edges?

If not there is only one small rim of resing that glue top and bottom fiber layer together after the edges are cut down to final shape!

Is that sufficient strong?

@gsm_peter -in a glass ' envelope ' construction like that the perimeter edge actually consists of all the layers of fabric you saw laminated together into a very strong sandwich that is much more than *zero* thick. the edges of a trick ski are probably tough enough to dent dock wood without hurting the ski at all.

@gsm_peter I am pretty sure most skis (slalom and trick) are not an actual monocoque (full wrap).
