I am talking about another design I have seen( cannot remember the small ski manufacture name,but some of the engineers that first worked with Shane McClonkey's skis? I think they left and started their own company). Small pucks, like a bulge, right at the outer edge of where the contact points are. For skis with tons of concave and reverse sidecut and rocker. Like a Bataleon TBT on steroids. Maybe Magnatraction is a better solution, but these looks cool. They had protos at SIA.
They say it is for grip in short bursts, so then when you go into the really deeps stuff, or jump, the rest of the ski performs. They assume ( protos) that with so much concave and rocker and sidecut, you would want this little bit of extra traction for icy entrances, or run outs.

Oh it's a ski fuck those things I don't care what they're doing doesn't effect me. I thought you were talking about the new design Flows working on with impact gel on their already hybrid camber, concaved based deck.
