Defiance B-Grade Snowblades

SKU: DBGSB15
The Defiance Blade is back and better than ever. This year's Blade features a new red graphic which is twice as cool as it's predecessor especially since it has an adjustable binding (because you know your friends are going to want to try them out). Snowblades are just short fat skis and are a fun alternative for skiers at any ability level. Blades also make for a fun new thing to try if you're already bored of regular skis or snowboard. These are listed as "B-Grade" for a lower price which means there is a slight cosmetic blemish. Read description below for more information. Bindings Sold Separately.

Details

B-Grade Skis: Some of these skis listed on this page are classified as B-Grade. This simply means that there are slight cosmetic defects that do not affect the overall integrity and performance of the ski. However, if you do run into any warranty-able issues with these B-grade skis, feel free to contact us for more information.

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Snowblades are easy to learn on, easy to control, and particularly fun to play around on for anyone, even experienced skiers. The short length makes the experience like a hybrid between rollerblading or ice skating and traditional skiing, where the edging and turning is similar, but everything is shorter and quicker. Navigating hairy terrain like bumps and trees is a breeze in these little sticks, as is jumping and spinning in the terrain park. We recommend these to anyone interested; advanced skiers looking for a fun change of pace could find it here, beginners looking for something to build confidence could find it here, and literally everyone in between.

Cap Construction: The topsheet of this ski drapes over the edge to form a clean and rounded finish to the side of the ski. This style of construction adds some torsional rigidity, and helps reduce topsheet chipping when the skis hit each other.

Defiance Skis: Defiance Skis is an American ski company founded solely to provide high quality, durable equipment at realistic prices. It's 2018! And this is the internet! Shoppers shouldn't have to resort to a decision between renting or buying used gear, and really shouldn't have to spend $800 equipping a beginning skier! All Defiance products are covered under a Lifetime Warranty so not to worry, if anything happens that shouldn't, L9 has gotcha covered. Stay beholden to the big box ski 'sales' if you must, or Defy the Ordinary, the decision is yours and yours alone.

Sintered Base: The material used for the base is harder, and therefore more durable than other options (Extruded). This material should be waxed regularly for best performance.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.
