"We started testing this new design over 18 months ago. After numerous test molds and countless prototypes I am proud to announce the fruit of our labor has arrived a bit early. Originally slated for an August/September release, the new 2010 D3 Z7 is ready for "competitive" consumption. I could spend valuable ski time writing all the usual hype that goes along with a new ski but it really is not necessary. This ski can do all the talking for me. Two simple words... RIDE ONE. The reviews have been nothing short of miraculous. Don't be the last to see how good the new Z7 really is."
