Fresh off offering water skiing’s first and only completely customized graphics, GOODE Skis is providing even more ways to customize your skiing with three new additions to the world-record breaking XT lineup: the Nano XTT™, Nano XTM™ and Nano XTW™. Check out the entire XT lineup at store.goode.com.
The three new skis compliment GOODE’s flagship Nano OneXT™ by catering to skiers who prefer either narrower (traditional) or wider skis. See which model is best for you with this ski comparison chart.
“The Nano OneXT has been one of the most well-received skis we’ve ever had,” said Dave Goode, founder and president of GOODE Skis. “But while the XT is going to be the right ski for probably 80 percent of skiers, there is still that 20 percent that likes the narrower or wider skis that we’ve been very successful with before. We are taking the best characteristics of the XT and adding them to these new widths so that no matter your preference, there is a world-class GOODE for you.”
The differences in the new skis are primarily the width, with the second “T” in XTT standing for “traditional” width (narrower than the XT), and the “M” and “W” in XTM and XTW standing for “mid” and “wide” (wider than the XT), respectively. While the new skis have a width and shape unique for each model, all feature the ground-breaking AsymRocker™, an asymmetrical rocker technology that first debuted with the Nano OneXT. AsymRocker creates a longer rocker on the offside, and a shorter rocker on the onside, completely eliminating any differences between on- and off-sides and leading to better, smoother and more consistent turns that build angle and add buoys.
The Nano XTT combines all the hard-charging, cross-course speed of the traditional-width 9900 series with the on-the-rails, no off-side-at-all turns pioneered by the Nano OneXT’s AsymRocker.
Designed with skiers who like to be more proactive in their turns in mind, many 36 mph skiers are going to find the Nano XTT more suitable to the sport’s top speed. Just ask Chris Parrish who is quickly returning to world-record form on his new Nano XTT.
The Nano XTM is the next generation of the ever popular Mid-Ride. The perfect combination of the performance-proven mid width and the XT’s rocker profile, the all-new Nano XTM is designed for skiers who like the ski to sit a little higher in the water, and the easier, more efficient ride that comes along with it.
The Nano XTM employs smaller bevels that, when combined with the asymmetrical rocker and extra width, require less skier input to create automatic, angle-building turns.
If you liked the 9900 series mid rides and the Nano Twist, you’ll love the Nano XTM.
The Nano XTW takes all of the characteristics of the Nano XTM and makes them, well, bigger.
For skiers who like the ski to ride even higher on the water, the Nano XTW is a medium speed ski that creates monster angle off the buoys with minimal skier input. And the Nano XTW’s extra width makes it the easiest ski to get up on in the entire XT lineup, sparing your back and saving energy for where it really counts: in the course.
