The ION III Junior takes its heritage from the highly successful ION2 slalom ski. The incredible performance of the ION III is the result of input from the the experience and success of our Team D3 Skiers in professional and World Championship tournaments.

The ION III Junior ski comes directly from the skis ridden by our pro skiers with the added change that the Junior model has a softer overall flex profile. The ION III has the same natural balance and equilibrium of a traditional shaped slalom ski. The ION III Junior is best ridden with a balanced stance over the middle of the ski.

So how do you do this.  The key is creating a bigger "Work Area".   By work area we are talking the space underneath your feet where the magic happens.  Many people call it a "flat spot", but the reality is that its not flat.  To create this bigger "work space" D3 shifted the key rocker component of the ski from under the heel of the front boot to under the toes of the your rear foot creating a fulcrum further back in the ski.   This change offers you the abilty to cast out wider as you set up for your turn, much more symmetry on. both your offside AND on side turns all while benefiting from way more stabilty under your feet with larger "work area".

You'll feel this as son as you pull up on the boat in your glide for the gates. The ski retains the offside turns that you have come to expect from all D3 skis. With that said, we improved the ski's ability to dynamically achieve quicker angle for your onside turns.

The ION sweet spot is replicated in the ION III Junior along with the stability, symmetry, and balance that all skiers have come to expect from our ION slalom skis. The ski is extremely predictable into the edge change, through a smooth carving turn, and builds angle and unparalleled cross-course speed.

The ION III Junior is perfect for younger and lighter weight skiers.

The ION III Junior features:

  • Ski Profile - Traditional Ski Shape - best ridden in a balanced stance over the middle of the ski. The ION series is slightly wider than the competition's traditional shape skis.
  • Tunnel Concave - Shallowest of the D3 slalom line which promotes good cross-course speed.
  • Rocker Profile - Multiple Stage Rocker - Optimizes the sweet spot and balance cross course and into the pre-turn and maximizes ski rotation out of the turn.
  • Tail Shape - Widest tail in the D3 slalom line.
  • Bevels - Soft tail bevel allows the tail of the ski to move throughout the turn in perfect balance with the tip.
  • All Levels - Designed for skiers of all levels and at the same time exceeds the expectations of the most demanding skiers.
  • Accuset Fin Block - Accurate, three-point set screws for easy fin adjustments and laser aligned fin position.
  • Machined Screw Inserts - Accommodates D3, Reflex and most current binding hole patterns. All inserts are set in hard PVC anchor blocks for trouble free screw retention.
