Powder skiing is all about floating a pivoting. It’s leaning back and feeling the snow blow over you, throwing down a turn in full whiteout, getting sendy and feeling the effortless landing as feet of soft fluffy pow cushion you. Once you are hooked on powder, it is all you want, what you chase after. From Japan to British Columbia to our home mountains in the Wasatch, powder skiing is one of the areas of true change for the industry.
Argent has designed and delivered the first truly revolutionary powder ski since the evolution rocker in the mid-2000s. Our Narwhal is a convex base, 122mm beast. From the top, it looks similar to other fat skis (other than our incredibly awesome graphics). The magic is the base. From the tip 80cm back and from the tail 60cm to the middle of the ski, the base is convex. And not just “down-flat-down” which other manufacturers such as DPS have used, this is a truly curved shape. And it becomes more convex the closer you get to the tip and tail. That shape makes this ski truly revolutionary, with the ability to pivot in powder at any speed in any location. We have personally tested this by throwing flat spins and nose butters at 40+mph on 40+ degree pitches. The convex shape means the Narwhal will feel like the lightest, easiest to turn ski you have ever used in powder, transforming your skiing and turning you into a glad run hero.
