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.
Reverse Elliptical Sidecut (“RES”) is a large, convex elliptical arc that runs from boot center to tip taper. With no traditional sidecut in the tips, the skis resist hooking or catching in soft snow, giving complete turn shape freedom at any speed.
Gifted. Exceptional. A crowd pleaser. Three years of testing stand behind the current Billy Goat, and even a few runs on a pair show that we’ve done our homework. Reverse Elliptical Sidecut (our proprietary technology harnessing reverse sidecut from boot center forward and tradition sidecut from boot center back) creates a unique ride that makes quick work of hard conditions and refrozen crusts, while providing the ski with a level of playfulness and smearability not seen in any of its competitors. To optimize float, its pintail design allows the tail to sink in soft snow and ensures the Billy Goat remains highly maneuverable and playful in trees and other tight spots. Pivoty, stable, and exceptionally skiable, the Billy Goat is still our go-to ski for those wanting a directional ride in soft snow.
