KD Platinum 2024
Platinum performs like no other ski you have ever ridden, and that’s a promise.
The Platinum is specifically developed for the performance driven tournament skier! Cross course speed, ability to gain width on the boat, tight radius turns & maximum stability… We could go on, but truth is the Platinum’s growing prestige worldwide speaks for itself!
Starting with some new features of this unique ski, we have chamfered side tail design to allow the ski to sit deeper in the water during the turn. Squared off rear tail allowing a nice clean flow for the water and minimise tail drag.
The side wall has varying thickness or widths from tip to tail to generate speed and directional stability. We start with the thin tail design as we said to allow the ski to sit deeper in the water during the turn, this progressively increases in thickness as we move up to the binding area. The wider or thicker side wall under the binding helps increase the speed of the ski and increases the skis ability to produce angle across the wakes. We carry the thicker side wall up to the forebody of the ski and start to reduce the thickness as we go into the tip rise.
Concave and rocker design has been cleverly match to the side wall design. Again starting at the tail we have rounded bevels allowing to have a looser tail moving to the mid section we increase the concave depth and edge bevels. These features carry through under the binding area generating a large forgiving sweet spot that produces a very reliable consistent ski under vary circumstances. Moving into the forebody the bevels soften and the concave becomes narrower, this adding stability to the ski during pre turn and through out the turn.
The KD Platinum has a rocker that blends all the designs of the side walls, bevels and concave designs together. The rocker in the tail enhances the skis strong turning characteristics and ability to generate angle from the buoy to the wake. The flat spot under the bindings solidifies the skis sweet spot and forgiveness.
We use the latest technology in PVC core material and carbon composite layup. The PVC lightweight core with the Carbon layup not only makes the ski light but super fast. The design ability allows the ski to flex during the turn and rebound out of the turn to generate speed across course. This carries further with its ability to carry width and speed from the wakes to the buoy like no other ski I have ever ridden.
The forebody deck design features a spine and incorporates torque and dampening effect. The spine feature has functionality that blends with the design features of this ski.
