Gear: Billy Goat 2019 from ON3P

Now in their 7th iteration, the Billy Goat Skis from ON3P are some of the most beautiful equipment currently available. Built for stability, power, and maneuverability in soft snow, they provide a stiff flex profile and a refined design to substantially improve hardpack performance. The Billy Goat Skis are great for big mountain and powder skiing, offering a partial twin tip and a rocker/camber/rocker configuration. Versatile, sleek, and long, these expert skis are built to last.

 

Three iterations ago, ON3P introduced its Reverse Elliptical Sidecut: a convex, elliptical arc from the tip to the boot sole, adding a traditional sidecut to the tail. The goal of this configuration is to improve the experience on hardpack to provide additional versatility for both freeride and big mountain skiers. The freeride rocker adds to this maneuverability, and the flex provides a solid underfoot platform, a stiffer tail, and a progressive tip.

 

The Billy Goat Skis are made with an FSC-certified, vertically laminated, 100% bamboo core. This choice is deliberate; bamboo facilitates optimal responsiveness, making for quick turn initiation. A carbon fiber laminate provides strength and stiffness, and the tri-axial fiberglass ensures proper edge hold, power transfer, and a sleek, glossy design. These skis also have an extra wide binding mat and vibration dampening strips for improved bonding strength.

 

These skis are reliable and perfect for a variety of conditions and skiers. They are available in three sizes: 179, 184, and 189. Additionally, the contrast between the deep, navy blue background and bright, orange landscape depicted on the topsheet is easy on the eyes. You’re bound to turn heads in these skis.
