French Ski company Coreupt might have been a little intoxicated when they decided these skis would be a good idea. To me it looks like they took a pair of K2 Hellbents, made them a little wider, a little longer and cut those tips right off. I guess I should look at it with open eyes and not knock them until I try them. We will have to wait and see what the production models actually look like.

Update: CoreUPT Does Good For Mountains
SkierRealm just received a message from CoreUPT telling us their new planks will be called the Big Balls skis. They are produced on a made to order basis keeping them very limited. CoreUPT is doing good by donating a couple pairs for private auction to raise money for the Mountain Riders Association. The French Mountain Riders coordinate and establish ‘Green-Events’ and ‘sustainable development’ charters for mountain resorts to help clean up our slopes.

When a ski shaper goes mad, he can produce strange things, like this fat (really fat : 207cm, 127mm waist, 47m radius) double rockered ski. An easy and smooth ski at the end, here is the Big Balls (easy and smooth is no the same for everyone). We have the opportunity to test it this morning, in a light creamy butter snow (almost 20cm at some places, awesome !! ;-) ). The faces at each lift were funny, I have to admit. And I have to tell you that we were smiling non stop when we got home. More info in the week to come.

  2. The Big Balls is a ski that will be produced on demand only. Some model will be sold via an private auction ! The money will be given to an Association called Moutain Riders. They’re very famous in cleaning the mountain at the end of the season, and acting against global warming and many other stuff

  3. Those skis are prototypes made on demand only ! They will be sold by an auctionneer, and the money will be given to an association called Mountain Riders to clean the mountain !
    And by the way, it have nothing in common with the HellBent as you said :)

    Thanks for the comments CoreUPT.com. I am stoked to see how they will ski. They look funky but like I said, looking with open eyes.
