Humankind’s long storied struggle to negotiate a 6-buoy slalom course faster and with a shorter rope than ever before has run into some physical limitations. Subtle tweaks in ski geometry and construction, which in many cases cannot be seen by the naked eye, is all that has differentiated the myriad of options available on the market. The DV8 ushers in a new era with VersaTail (patent pending) - our new interchangeable tail system that features the ability to alter the geometry in the last inches of your ski. Welcome to a new dimension in fine tuning.
Introducing, a flagship ski brand new for 2021, the DV8. Featuring patent pending VersaTail technology, this is the most customizable ski ever. Welcome to a new dimension in fine tuning. Throughout the years, brands have been on a quest to create a ski that checks all the boxes. Yet because skiers have varying styles and skill sets, the one-shape-fits-all approach doesn’t always pan out for everyone. With the DV8 and VersaTail, you choose how your ski rides and reacts.
While considerable masterminding is put into the overall construction of a high-end slalom ski — the sidecut, rocker, bevels, etc — many people don’t realize how large a part the last few inches of the tail play. A change in tail geometry can mean the difference in a ski performing in perfect rhythm with your personal style. Our patent pending VersaTail technology offers the ability to fine tune the flow of water off the tail of the ski, taking a step beyond the standard fin and binding position adjustments. Skiers can choose from one of three tails, which are all included with the DV8.
Although the DV8 is built with the same building blocks as our other high-end slalom skis (think GT-R, GT, Prophecy, etc), it was formulated with its own unique makeup. Between an increased rocker line, more subtle top shape, softer flex and customizable tail shapes, the DV8 requires less perfection on your part and is the most forgiving ski we’ve ever created."
