“These Summit Source Sk8 96 cm Rocker/Camber Skiboards are incredible. I have been playing ice hockey for 20 years and have skied off and on for the same amount of time. These skiboards react very similarly to ice skates. I was able to go down a double black diamond with confidence the first day wearing these. On my normal atomic backcountry skis I’m lucky to make it down a regular black diamond. These skiboards are very reactive to turns and make navigating through trees a breeze. I recommend anyone who has played hockey give these a try. You won’t regret it.” Rena Herndobler
Tuning: These come with fully tuned edges but will need a base wax before riding for maximum performance and base protection.
Atomic M10 Ski Release Bindings: These can come pre-mounted with the Atomic M10 release bindings for the perfect combination for safety, flex and step-in-and-go performance.

This binding is slightly oversize with extra long wings for great lateral transmission. Height 16.5 mm. If you ride your skiboards hard, in moguls, parks or wherever, these are a good choice. Boot size range is 262mm to 382mm (approx. 4-15 US). Easy to adjust by hand. Skier weight 94-264 lbs.
Technine Custom Pro DS Snowboard Bindings: These were designed by us to work perfectly with skiboards, while allowing you the comfort of using snowboard boots on your skiboards. For 6 years running now, these have a proven track record of skiboard performance with snowboard boots. The Custom Snowboard bindings feature 3 padded rachet straps to hold you in place when carving. This allows a more stable interface between boots and bindings. The benefit of this is maximum power transfer to your skiboard edges with no lag. This has always been a problem UNTIL NOW!! Includes two Leashes and Summit Snowboard Binding Riser Kit. Fits snowboard boot sizes 7-14 US.
Note: While there are currently no specific guidelines or laws preventing the use of non-release bindings on skiboards even up to 140cm, the longer length skiboards when used with non-release bindings do increase the risk of injury. Should you choose to use non-release bindings you do so at your own risk knowing full well that there is the chance of serious injury.

Rocker/Camber Design: a unique combination of Rocker/Camber construction — 15% rocker in front with 4 mm rise, 5% rear with 4 mm rise and 80% camber. This makes for super easy turn initiation, a very short turn radius, great in powder and playing in the parks as well as cruising the groomed runs.
ABS Sidewall Construction: Crafted with ABS sidewall construction, the Rocker 118 construction provides many advantages over cap construction. Among these advantages are increased torsional stability, greater edge protection, enhanced power transfer to the edges, improved vibration dampening, greater strength and a full length flex from tip to tail. Translated, these will ride like no other skiboards you have ridden.
Wood core: vertically laminated, hand selected cold temperature birch wood core runs the full length of the skiboards, tip to tail. This provides a lighter weight, yet superior strength. The benefit of Northern Hemisphere Birch is that the colder temperatures cause the trees to grow at a slower pace, thus creating a denser, yet lighter wood. As a result, the birch wood core is very light, yet super strong and durable. Cores are vertically laminated for extra strength.The high energy, lively wood core is sandwiched between two top layers of triaxial fiberglass (new layer added this season) for torsional strength and a layer of triaxial fiberglass underneath. An additional layer of Kevlar is is added for not only extra strength and impact resistance, but super long durability that maintains the energetic pop in the skiboards. These skiboards offer just the right combination of flex and torsional stiffness providing a super smooth ride without the chatter no matter how much you lay it over. In addition, a rubber dampening layer is included to absorb vibrations while still allowing maximum road feel.
360 full wrap Rockwell carbon steel edges: protects your skiboards from those unexpected dings while providing superior edge grip. Edges are sand blasted prior to assembly to ensure a perfect, secure fit.
Wide Body Shape: a large skiboard surface area for maximum stability, floatation and speed.
Symmetrical Twin-tips: makes it easier to ride forwards as well as backwards. Excellent handling in the parks and pipes. Also, makes for the most perfect carves.
Die-cut Sintered bases: this is one of the best base materials for durability, maximum wax absorption and speed. These p-tex 4000 bases have less friction and thus more speed as well as less vulnerability to abrasion and impacts.
3D Carbonium Top Sheet: one of the strongest top sheets available (and very rare) that not only offers amazing top sheet protection from those potential dings and chips, but allows the sharp graphics to show through in all their detail. Includes UV protective layer.
Aluminum reinforcement layer: provides extra retention for release bindings, yet not adding weight and does not influence flex in any way. Adds to enhanced edge grip.
Sidewall bevel: 65 degree sidewall bevel. Angled sidewalls further protect the top sheet from dings and chips.
Edge bevel – 1 degree base and side bevel of 88 degrees: great for carving with ease. These aggressive edges are amazing on ice and lay it over carving.
