The c85 is the pinnacle of a decade spent testing, learning, and pushing ourselves to find something better.
The lift distribution and induced drag of the c85 peak at the same place, under the toes and ball of the front foot. This gives incredible positive feedback to the skier, allowing him or her to feel the ski’s lift center and drive into it as needed to create a powerful turn and build angle at will. The induced drag profile causes the ski to want to keep building angle, and speed, all the way into the wakes, making the amount of time and space it takes to get from turn apex to the course centerline blisteringly fast. This sets the ski up to run a very early line and have maximal time and space before the next buoy. More rocker in the tip makes the ski more forgiving to skier movement in the turn, and more rocker in the tail allows the tail to keep slipping even while sitting deep in the water. This dynamic makes for a hyper-stable turn that feels very planted without getting stuck, and it allows the skier to get away with a less than ideal body position.
The c85 is available in 5 sizes, XS, S, M, L and XL. All skis are 65.5” long, and each size progresses in width in 0.1” increments. Skis come standard with our custom 6061 anodized aluminum fin block, a RFF or LFF specific 7075 anodized aluminum CG Fin, anodized aluminum flat wing, and brass corrosion resistant inserts. The insert pattern fits all modern bindings available.
Skier ability and height will effect size recommendation. If you are between sizes and ski line lengths longer than 32off, size up. If you are between sizes and ski line lengths 32off and shorter, size down. If you are between sizes and tall for your weight, size up. If you are between sizes and short for your weight, size down.
The c85 may be returned within 14 days of purchase, less a $199 demo fee. The refund will only be accepted if you are not satisfied AFTER working with the Denali team to set up your ski.
