Introducing The Magic, A New Model!
December 19th, 2012 by Jason Duquette-Hoffman
Like Willy Wonka, we just can’t leave well enough alone. The Humpback has been killing it as our most versatile, go everywhere ski. Of course, as a more traditional, directional shape, it left a few of the more progressive skiers out there wanting more….
You know, the ones who spend almost as much time backwards as front-wise. I’ve got this friend, an incredible skier, who has a habit of flinging himself off anything he can, and typically upside down, backwards or some such thing. Now, while I cannot share his enthusiasm for stretching the laws of physics, I do enjoy watching him ski. And what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t offer a design that worked for him and his ilk?
So when a few other friends, denizens of Magic Mountain, began asking about a backcountry-friendly twin that was more forward-mounted, I saw an opportunity. Thus emerged the Magic. Based on our Humpback, but with a more forward mount point, more balanced twin tip design, it is a perfect tool for getting jiggy with backcountry jibs. Topped off with a kickin’ new graphic from Amy Gironda that celebrates the natural mysticism of Vermont’s icon of the southern mountains, the Magic rounds out our offering of everyday backcountry shredding tools.
