All Goode gear, including carbon fiber pencil ski poles and award-winning water skis, feature carbon, which has extremely lightweight, yet strong properties. The featherweight Nirvana has an 88 mm waist, a tight turning radius and slight rocker in the tip for maneuverability in variable snow conditions. Alder called it "a beautiful carver, particularly in medium-to-long turns." A carbon torsion box construction and carbon fiber sidewalls make the Nirvana strong underfoot, but with a soft longitudinal flex. "It has a totally different feel than other skis," said Sutton. "It's really responsive for an aggressive skier."
