NEW for 2020, the mountain town ski nerds at Bishop redesigned the Chedi using our proprietary TELEM-ARC TECHNOLOGY™. Countless iterations of computer simulations and multiple rounds of on snow testing has resulted in a truly unique, telemark-specific ski for our tribe.
The 2020 Chedi gives you the ultimate flex and performance for that perfect dropped-knee turn. Instead of the "dead-zone" of alpine skis which require a large area for mounting fixed heel bindings, TELEM-ARC TECHNOLOGY™ gives the ski a sweet, smooth flex under your boot to create a perfect arc that ONLY the telemark turn can provide. Gone are the days of skiing those lame "alpine specific" skis with your top of the line telemark gear. Viva la Freeheel!
This ski is a hard-charging, fun-loving, all-mountain companion. We combine our new TELEM-ARC TECHNOLOGY™ with an early rise tip, camber underfoot, and a flat tail that makes the Chedi a blast to ski in all conditions. A perfect balance of float, stability at speed, and playful performance.
In memoriam: This ski is named after, Chedi who passed away in from cancer at age 9. She was a loyal friend, loved all things winter, and came on many backcountry adventures with the gang. Her spirit lives on in this loyal, howl-evoking, all-mountain ski.
