For the past year we have been asking our D3 test team to tell us exactly what they want in a trick ski. We asked skiers of varying abilities from 3,000 points to World Record holders. As with any questionnaire the answers were varied but there was one common theme. "My current ski is the ultimate in stability and tracking, but I would like to feel my ski release easier and have more pop on all wake tricks." We turned our attention to improving how our trick ski performed during every aspect of wake tricks, the cut (or load), the release off the wake and finally the landing.
With the Aira HC has addressed all of these demands. We are very excited to announce we have exceeded even our own expectations. After creating many different prototypes Denny Kidder, Will Bush and the entire D3 design team all agree we have ended up with a masterpiece. The Aira combines everything Denny Kidder has learned over the years while also considering the changing needs of the modern trick skier. Fresh new design concepts and solutions were utilized to produce the ultimate ski for the new age trick ski competitor as well as the seasoned veteran skiers. D3 just made trick skiing easier for every competitor. One ride and you will be convinced.
The Aira features a completely redesigned, forward thinking approach to the traditional D3 overall topographical shape. More support where you need it and less where you don't. A new tapered profile has been designed into both the tip and tail of the Aira. While subtle to the naked eye this modification creates a truly magical feel on all wake tricks and produces effortless pop that must be experienced to truly be appreciated.
The Aira HC comes complete with rock solid, ABS plastic anchors embedded inside the core of each ski. These anchors allow us to install the industry's highest quality machine screw inserts in all Aira models. Rear plate inserts are now standard equipped on all Aira tricks. These rear inserts are designed to work with our new Pro Trick Plate and also accommodate the Radar trick rear toe plate.
