D3 ARC S (D3)

The new ADVANCED ROCKER & CONCAVE (ARC-S softer version) is the culmination of a two-year pursuit of peak slalom ski performance. A fresh and new direction in ski width, rocker and concave have led D3 to the greatest slalom ski design in the history ...

Skier ability and line length may affect recommendation

Softer Flex Pattern - The ARC-S is a slightly softer version of the ARC that has all the same performance characteristics. The ARC-S is the perfect solution for lighter skiers and also for those skiers who are at the lower end of the weight range for a particular size ski. The ARC-S is the choice for skiers who prefer to ski the next larger size ski and for those that are dropping speed divisions but still want short line performance.

D3 Team skier Ryan Canepa - has this to say about the new ARC-S, “I have been skiing the 67” ARC-S and for me at 145lbs, skiing at 36mph the softer flexing ARC-S is working really well.”Natural Radius Rocker Profile - Creates a tight radius turn that starts with ease and finishes completely.

Aggressive Concave Depth - Allows the ARC-S to grab powerful angle and cross course hold; giving the skier the ability to add direction thru the wakes. The result- a ski that is faster and earlier to the next buoy.

Wider Forebody - Provides more support and course width without losing speed thru the turn. The ARC-S casts outbound better than any ski D3 has ever produced.

Tip to tail bevel design - The bevel assembly of the ARC-S stays consistent from tip to tail to allow a smooth precise water flow. This keeps the ski moving even when aggresively attacking the shortest line lengths.

45/45 Carbon Fiber Laminate Layup - This unique layup allows the ARC-S to recover from the massive loads of short line turns. This keeps the ARC-S stable and predictable to maximize cross course direction out of the turns.

Rockerblock R-30 - Is standard equipment on all ARC-S slalom skis. The success of the Rockerblock has carried D3 to World Slalom Records. Its natural radius delivers a complete finish to both the on-side and the off-side turns.

The D3 production facility located in Ellensburg, Washington USA is “state of the art” in every way. Each ski is carefully inspected and must pass strict criteria for rocker, flex, weight and flat spot before it receives a serial #. All D3 skis are documented and filed under their born-on-date and serial #.

All D3 skis now come with an insert hole pattern
that accommodate both D3 and HO binding plates.
HO EXO Bar System requires adapter plates.

the Arc S reacts more to my inputs, perfect turns, getting wider easier
