The Viggo has been tailored to fit all your park specific needs. The perfectly symmetrical dimensions allow for smooth travel in all directions and the large surface area in the tip and tail will facilitate buttery transitions. Smashing skis off rails, down stairs, and into icy landings can eat into their lifespan, and that’s why we’ve made durability a focus of the Viggo.
For the last decade, we have offered wood sidewall construction to seamless urethane sidewall construction. The simplicity and elegance of wood sidewalls continues to impress our customers, park rats included. This season, the Viggo goes back to wood sidewall construction.
Maple wood is processed into vertically laminated cores, creating the solid foundation of all our skis. Each core is CNC machined in-house to define a precise flex pattern. The end-grain of the core is protected by UHMW tipfill while the sidewalls expose maple's natural beauty. Linseed oil is applied for further enhancements.

Building on our core strength, we layer triaxial fiberglass both above and below, with strips of unidirectional carbon on the bottom layer. This adds pop and increases the strength-to-weight ratio.
The sliding surface is the finest 4001 sintered UHMW base you can find. All our bases are black with coloured die-cut logos, making them simple, fast and more durable than the clear sublimated bases that are popular throughout the industry.
Our steel edges are hardened, sandblasted and primed for bonding, using Kevlar at the end to reinforce and tie into the ski. You won’t find edges on our tips and tails as they add unnecessary weight and are in an area that's prone to delaminating.
To bond everything together we bring in Super Sap resin. Entropy Resins exchanges petroleum for renewable plant-based carbon with no compromises, helping us produce great skis with a lower environmental impact. We also use rubber to improve bonding between the dissimilar materials.
The skis are finished and protected by the most durable, chip-resistant nylon topsheet you can find. Essential when you have a collection of amazing artists’ hard work to show off.
