nanoMAG Damping System
16m @ 174cm
Early Rise Tip/Camber
The Brockway 80s are tailor made for skiers who spend all day ripping down frontside groomers. Light and agile, they’ll propel you out of carved turns with noticeable pop. The sturdy ash and poplar hardwood core provides a very snappy, energetic ride.
As the narrowest of our production models, the Brockway 80s provide tenacious grip on boilerplate and hardpack. They’re incredibly quick edge to edge and excel at short, nimble turns. And the snow doesn’t have to be smooth - these skis provide ample confidence in inconsistent, variable conditions.
Now standard across our Brockway lineup, the exclusive nanoMAG Damping System reduces vibration and chatter on ice without sacrificing the lively feel you’re looking for.
Subtle camber pockets molded within the overall camber triple the turn initiation contact points for maximum edge grip. The early rise rocker tip profile helps the ski bust through choppy snow and ease into any turn shape. Once the edge is initiated, the fully cambered mid-body engages your edge and maximizes stability.
New for 2021: The Brockway 80 has replaced the Hubbell 85, nanoMAG is now standard.
Early Rise Tip Rocker maximizes flotation in powder and busts through crud
Ash/Poplar Hardwood Core gives you a smooth and stable, yet energetic ride.
Rounded Mini-Cap top edge with full-height UHMW sidewalls are bombproof and look good too.
nanoMAG® Damping System construction makes chatter on ice a thing of the past.
Custom Ski Graphic Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer quantity discounts for custom skis?
Yes! We waive the custom artwork fees for orders over 5 pair (same ski, same length). Contact us for further discounts on orders over 10 pair.
I don't have my graphics ready, can I still order order now?
Yes, we will put your skis into production when you send us your artwork. Feel free to order ahead of time.
I would like a custom illustration or full custom artwork for my graphic, can you do that?
We can set you up with either our graphic designer or send print specs to your preferred artist/designer. The art cost for this starts at $200 and increases based on complexity.
What colors will my ski base be?
They will be the the standard base colors/graphics from the stock version of your ski model. For example - the Ahmeek 105s have one ski black with "blue Shaggy's" letters and one ski blue with black "Shaggy's" letters - so any customized Ahmeek 105 will have that corresponding base. Depending on stock levels, we may be able to do an all black base with different color "Shaggy's" letters - call us at (231)459-4323 to inquire.

Adobe Photoshop (.PSD) or Adobe Illustrator (.AI or .EPS) preferred - please flatten or outline all text and embed images.
TIFF files also acceptable without any ski shape shown (art must extend beyond edge of skis by 1").
General use templates are below, we will always send you a mockup with the final production layout for your approval prior to making your custom skis!
Please make sure when artwork is complete to turn off the template/ski shape layer before submitting it (your artwork must extend past the edge of the skis).
Laminated Ash/Poplar Hardwood: Long grain premium White Ash and Tulip Poplar is hand selected and cut into full length strips. Strips are individually flex indexed and laminated together symmetrically. Each laminated core is CNC milled to a precise thickness profile developed for each model and length.
nanoMAG® Damping System
nanoMAG® magnesium sheets are inlaid into the Ash hardwood cores. The unique characteristic of this material is its ability to dissipate mechanical energy into heat, with increased capacity as the material is moved faster. This unique combination produces the most stable, yet lively 80 mm waist ski on the market. The faster you ski, the more stable they get!
Unidirectional Carbon Fiber strips above and beneath the core, Triaxial Fiberglass above and beneath the core, Fiberglass binding mat underfoot. Rubber bonding strips placed along edges, sidewalls, and ends for rock solid bonding.
Full height UHMW - the same raw material as your base, bombproof and double chamfered for reduced swingweight. A rounded mini-cap top edge rolls over the sidewall to protect your topsheets.

Blog Post About How to Size and Select Skis
Here's a basic chart to get you started:
Sizing skis is a little bit of an art and a little bit of a science. There are numerous factors that all affect the optimal ski length for you.
A few of the factors are:
- Skier size and weight
- Skier ability (experts size up, beginners size down)
- Type of terrain you like
- Where you normally ski
- Current ski size
The list could go on and on, but if you need help with the decision, always feel free to call us at 231.459.4323, live chat, or email us!
What snow conditions are they made for?
Are they right for me?
You want a powerful all mountain ski that can set an edge on ice and hardpack, yet also rail through crud with confidence and predictability. The more traditional mounting position and stiff tail provide a locked-in, energetic feeling, reminiscent of a race ski, but the added width and lighter weight make for a versatile model that can hold its own in varying snow conditions.
What length should I get?
The Brockway 80s have early rise tip rocker and a stiff flex. If you are between lengths, size up for stability at speed or size down for quicker turns.
What bindings should I get?
You can use any binding on the Brockway 80s as long as the brake width is at least 80mm wide. We run Marker Griffon bindings on our demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.

What are Camber Pockets?
Camber Pockets are additional small sections of camber (about 4 in long and 0.030" tall) molded into the overall camber of the ski in front of and behind your midsole position. They increase contact pressure to improve grip on hardpack and ice. [add graphic]
Are they tuned and waxed?
Skis come tuned with a 1° base edge bevel and a 3° side edge bevel and a slight tip/tail detune. The skis are waxed with a universal temperature wax to get you going.
Ride Notes: Fast edge-to-edge, responsive, powerful, and stable. Quickly dives into a short-radius turn when pressured, yet holds steady when opened up.
Design Needs: Awesome edge grip - stiff flex - snappy/energetic rebound
Purpose: Make an all mountain ski that can be driven like a race ski, but excel in a wider variety of conditions. Radius should split the difference between a slalom and GS ski. Give the ski enough backbone so everything you put in, you get out - make it a ski to be driven!
