                                                                       D3 SLALOM SKI COMPARISON - 2022


                                                    ION 2                                        NEO                                          NRG R2            

Ski profile Traditional Ski Shape – The ION 2 (wider than the competition’s traditional shape slalom skis). The ION 2 is best ridden with a balanced stance over the middle of the ski. Front profile is wider relative to a narrower tail. Designed for that demanding skier looking for quick acceleration, quick deceleration, and quick turns Widest slalom ski in D3 line - wide forebody - with more stability and support. The wider width profile allows the skier to ride a shorter ski. It is also a great option for skiers at 34 mph.
Tunnel concave Shallowest tunnel in the D3 slalom line. Promotes good cross-course speed Widest edge to edge bevel footprint and deepest concave of any D3 ski to date Deep concave – More that ION-2 – slightly less than NEO. Rides well in rough water condtions.
Rocker profile Lowest rocker in D3 slalom line – ski attitude more level with less tip rise Mid-level rocker design - between ION-2 (less) and NRG R2 (more) Highest rocker profile in the D3 line
Tail shape Widest tail in the D3 slalom line Narrowest tail in D3 slalom ski line up - less resistance - allows the tail to rotate the ski into immediate angle Narrower than ION-2, wider than NEO - allows the ski to move in the turn
Bevels Softer ION tail bevel allows the tail of the ski to move throughout the turn in perfect balance with the tip Overall, bevels are slightly larger than ION or NRG - allows the NEO to sit slightly deeper Similar to ION - ski rides a bit higher
