The company that forever changed water skiing with the introduction of carbon-fiber skis has done it again with the sport’s first ever carbon core slalom ski.
The new-for 2020 ReVOcc is the turbocharged version of the ski that won a Big Dawg Season Championship and topped the podium at major tournaments across the globe.
The ReVOcc features:
The all-new Carbon Core: Greater rebound, more stability at the ball and increased durability.
A thinner profile: The Carbon Core’s increased strength allows for a thinner side profile, leading to a deeper-riding ski that offers skiers a more connected-to-the-water feeling.
Softer flex patterns: The Carbon Core led to the holy grail of ski design – soft flex patterns that produce indestructible, symmetrical turns, with quick rebound out of the turn that generates amplified side-to-side speed.
Larger, rounder bevels: Working in concert with the thinner profile, refined bevels provide a more stable, predictable ride, resulting in more buoys even when things don’t go as planned (read: better scrambling ability).
“What I noticed instantly was how quick I came out of the buoy. I just locked in and rocketed out of the buoy without any hesitation. I ran three at 41 right off the dock and knew immediately we were on to something.” – Dave Miller
The 2020 ReVOcc comes in two flavors: Performance package and GOODE’s all-new Concierge level.
While the Performance package skis feature a single flex pattern (medium), neutral foot forward layup, and new standardized graphics, the Concierge level takes ski design and performance to the next level by customizing each ski to the customer’s specific needs and skiing style.
Concierge skis come with:
Left- or right-foot forward customization
Three AMP choices – 1, 2 or 3 (softer flex, middle flex and firmer flex)
32mph, 34mph or 36mph bevels
Custom colored “GOODE” and circle G graphics
“Concierge skis are for customers who are really ready to get serious about their skiing,” says Dave Goode, founder and president of GOODE Skis. “Through the customization process we’ll be able to take a ski that is already best in its class, and fine tune it to get even better results.
“When someone becomes a Concierge customer, they aren’t just buying a ski from us. They are entering a partnership that doesn’t end until they have the absolute best ski for them.”
Regina Jaquess’ build up to the 2019 World Championships continues to be quite successful. Just weeks after setting her 9th Women’s slalom world record, Regina won the gold medal in Women’s slalom and Overall at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.
Regina scored 3 buoys at 41-feet off in the slalom finals to take the win, topping second-place finisher Whitney McClintock-Rini, who scored 5.5 buoys at 39-1/2 feet off. Regina also beat Whitney for the overall gold by compiling the top scores in both slalom and jumping.
In the Men’s division, Dorien Llewellyn and Taylor Garcia both tied for fifth in slalom, while Dorien, Felipe Miranda, Rodrigo Miranda and Taylor went 1-2-3-4 in Men’s overall.
Team GOODE racked up four of the six podium spots in slalom at last weekend’s European Championships in Spain.
