GOODE Skis kicked off the 73rd GOODE Water Ski National Championships today in West Palm Beach, Fla., by releasing the latest ski in its high-performance lineup: the Nano 1FT™.
The Nano 1FT takes water skiing’s most buzzed about technological advancement in years – the patent-pending endoskeleton, carbon-fiber backbone and through cut support ribs featured in this year’s hit FlexTail™ – and combines it with the world-record breaking performance of the Nano One™ shape.
“The new lateral flex technology featured on the FlexTail turned out so well that we began looking for another shape in our lineup to utilize it on,” says Dave Goode, founder and president of GOODE Skis. “Some shapes are more conducive to certain skiing styles, so we wanted to make sure that we give our customers a chance to find the best ski for them.
“The Nano One shape was the obvious choice. From day one that ski and its successor, the Nano OneXT, have been phenomenal skis. They’ve set numerous world records and countless personal bests. But now with the new lateral flexing tail technology, that great shape is going to be even better.”
