At Gilson, we are dedicated to developing the highest quality snowboards and skis that accelerate progression and deliver a more fun experience on the mountain. We do that by designing with fluid dynamics in mind.
The concept is simple - all objects that move through a fluid are designed with curves to enhance performance. Boats, submarines, cars and planes are not flat for a reason, and nor are Gilson snowboards and skis.
GILSON DESIGN FEATURES
The Butter Pad
The Butter Pad is a slightly raised portion of the base that contacts the snow or jib when you stand flat. It makes for super easy butters and smooth sliding across rails and boxes.

All Mountain Skis
The Gilson All Mountain skis are designed to heighten performance while delivering a more fun and playful experience on the mountain. The Soft Edge enables effortlessly smooth edge-to-edge transitions. The skis swing through the fall line with reduced friction and no hangups, making turns seamless and smooth. In between edges, Gilson skis can float and surf with zero steel-to-snow contact, delivering fun surfy turns as well as snappy aggressive carves. In moguls, you can snap from edge to edge, or you can float and pump on the soft edge, drifting through the bumps with a new kind of agility. When the skis are on edge, they deliver powerful and supportive carves. The early rise nose creates tons of lift in powder and the cambered profile underfoot loads energy in big carves for high energy transitions. If you haven’t tried the Soft Edge, it’s a feeling unlike anything else on snow. Plain and simple, Soft Edge skis are more fun.
