Kitten Factory Ski Porn

Post by kylea »

Hey guys, I figured I would start a thread on here to post some of the photos of our adventures this winter while testing some of our new skis.

December has been good to us in Utah. We had lots of snow and a stable snow pack, so we were able to get after it and start sending some lines and cliffs pretty early in the season.

Here are some of the best shots from December courtesy of Mr. Jeffrey Scott.

Here is a little writeup from one of our good friends/riders Jeremy Lato from ns. He unfortunately broke and dislocated his elbow in the Idaho BC and will be out for eight weeks or so. Here is hoping for a full and speedy recovery.

And here is a super fancy video he made from his first few weeks of the season.

Nice video! So I'm thinking,,,, When you're building the jumps like the one you use to go over the road, how do you know what elevation and angle to build it to clear the road or whatever it is you're jumping over? Is it just "eyeball engineering" and a big set of balls?

Thanks! And it is precisely eyeball engineering and a big set of balls. Jeremy was to one to guinea the jump that day, and did so with a beastly cork 7.

You don't even have a legit signature, nothing to reveal who you are and what you do...

Best of luck to you. (uneva)

Kitten Factory engineer and swell skier, Calvin Hawley won the Subaru Freeride Series 2-star day on West Baldy at Snowbird last week. He was riding some of our carbon skis.

The guy who yelled out "f'in sick" pretty much summed it up.
Don't wait up, I'm off to kill Summer....

Our website is up! We are still tweaking it a bit every day and definitely still need to make some changes, but the general layout is all there. Would love some feedback from you guys.

Skis look great as does the website. My suggestion is to add more specifics to the product description. Assuming that most people will not be able to go into their local store and see the product first hand, having lots of details on the skis is helpful. For example - weight, tip rise, camber height, contact length, etc. High end ski buyers tend to be tech geeks and the more info the better. Check out the Praxis website.

Keep up the great work and hope to see some Kitten Factory products on the slopes this season.

Site looks great! Prices are very reasonable considering the construction/material in each ski type. Buyers are getting a great product at a great price. Keep up the great work!
