ARC or ARC-S?
The ARC comes in two flexes – the ARC & ARC-S.
The ARC is our standard flex designed for the skier in the middle to upper end of the suggested weight range for each ski size.
The ARC-S has a slightly softer flex from the front binding forward. The softer front flex of the ARC-S allows the front of ski to create a tighter arc while the back of the ski maintains the speed of the standard ARC. If you are looking to ride a larger ski for your height or you are on the lighter side for a particular size ski, we recommend you ride the ARC-S. If you like the feel of the front of the ski finishing with more load, we recommend you ride the ARC-S.
The new ADVANCED ROCKER & CONCAVE (ARC) is the culmination of a two-year pursuit of peak slalom ski performance. A fresh, new direction in regards to ski width, rocker and concave have led us to the greatest slalom ski design in the history of the Denny Kidder brand. No gimmicks, no gadgets, just the perfect hull shape.
Nate Smith – has this to say about his new ARC, “ With the D3 ARC I am confident that increasing my World Record at 43 is only a matter of time …”
Natural Radius Rocker Profile – Creates a tight radius turn that starts with ease and finishes completely.
Aggressive Concave Depth – Allows the D3 ARC to grab powerful angle and cross course hold; giving the skier the ability to add direction thru the wakes. The result- a ski that is faster and earlier to the next buoy.
Wider Forebody – Provides more support and course width without losing speed thru the turn. The ARC casts outbound better than any ski D3 has ever produced.
Tip to tail bevel design – The bevel assembly of the ARC stays consistent from tip to tail to allow a smooth precise water flow. This keeps the ski moving even when aggresively attacking the shortest line lengths.
45/45 Carbon Fiber Laminate Layup – This unique layup allows the ARC to recover from the massive loads of short line turns. This keeps the D3 ARC stable and predictable to maximize cross course direction out of the turns.
Power Flex Pattern – A flex pattern with unparalleled consistency means the harder you push the ARC the better it responds.
Rockerblock R-30 – Is standard equipment on all ARC slalom skis. The success of the Rockerblock has carried D3 to World Slalom Records. Its natural radius delivers a complete finish to both the on-side and the off-side turns.
