Why the name 7EVEN?
We would love to tell you a badass story about how we skied the 7 biggest mountaintops in the world. The real story is a little less glamorous. 7even was an amazing skiing-biking-frisbee playing Border Collie. Born with a fur 7 on her forehead, she just couldn't be named 'Fido' or 'Rex', so Seven it was. While starting to build skis, a lot of names passed the brainstorming session, but only one meant something: 7EVEN. Representing fast, sweet, solid and trust. Want to meet her? (picture)
Why should I buy your skis?
We have developed the Pulse Inhibiting Technology, which reduces vibration and increases edge hold in every condition.
Every ski core holds 10 different pieces of wood. That means we pick wood that matches the flex required for each pair of skis. Each pair of cores are made from the same board, so flex patterns are optimally matched. We blend wood with different resonance(but equal strength) that cancel out vibration to give you a smoother ride. Our vibration damping doesn't deaden the life of the ski, but only removes unwanted vibration to optimize grip. We pick the best tree, cut the best part, shape it, and mill it with precision . After we have designed the best core, we combine it with the best composite materials. Carbon, fiberglass, and kevlar to mention a few.
What does race inspired mean?
Performance. In our search to create the ultimate All Mountain Ski, we tested different combinations of several composites. We are about high quality materials and craftsmanship combined with the never lying data of science. Aside from materials, we use traditional camber layed up in a sandwich construction, which is still the gold standard for high performance skis.
Why do you make flat top skis?
Our skis are made without gimmicks. The 3D shapes on the top sheets of skis are designed in the marketing department, not from results on the hill. If you use the highest quality material and have the right blend of flex, sidecut, torsion, camber, and damping, your skis will perform at optimal levels. Most 3D shapes are fiberglass veil pressed to enhance the look of the ski with little to no added performance. World Cup race skis are always sandwich construction and flat top. These are the highest performing skis available, and all other technology is derived from them.
Are you a ski tuning shop or a ski manufacturer?
Both. We build skis, and have a long career as ski tuners, racers, engineers, and CNC machinists, which makes us understand every aspect of ski building and tuning. After building skis and needing stone grinders and other tuning gear, it only made sense with our experience to offer both tuning and skis.
Do you also tune and repair snowboards?
Yes. We specialize in skis, but our machine and skills can handle your board. We build skis because we are passionate skiers, but the process for tuning is the same for snowboards.
