Frequently Asked Questions
The Guardian 2.0's are not necessary but they are a highly recommended accessory. We estimate that 90%+ of customers own them. They allow you to go from non snow surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, lodge etc to the snow with ease. They provide traction and protection for your skis. Without them you have to switch in and out of the boots when you leave the snow. Guardian 2.0's can be purchased here
The flex of our boots is unique to our brand and sport which is what makes skating on snow possible. Ski boots are traditionally too stiff to make skating smooth and comfortable. Our boots combine world class liners with an amazing shell quality to provide both comfort and support. Most people find our boots to be the most comfortable ski equipment they have ever worn and find them extremely warm.
Although the motions and balance is very similar to skating on ice the boot itself is quite different. It is designed for specifically riding ski slopes and so has higher ankle support and is heavier. We have many hockey players that ride ODR and they have expressed to us that the learning curve for them is nearly non-existent so the skills that Hockey players and ice skaters have often make learning to use ODRs quick and easy.
Caring for your equipment is important. We recommend a standard edge tuner to tune the edges which can be purchased at most ski shops or on Amazon. Tuning the edges, Dynamic Wax to keep them quick and guards to protect them off snow are all recommended accessories. Together these three products allow you to care for your skis keeping them in top shape for the seasons ahead and the memories to come.
No, we do not recommend traditional ski wax. Hot irons and hot waxes are messy, hard to apply and often dangerous to handle. We recommend our specially designed and developed in house wax called Dynamic Wax sold here!
Yes! The skis can be replaced if they get too scratched or damaged. They are removed with four machine screws inside the shell. Please contact support for instructions on replacing bases (we have a new and improved base replacement kit that we sell for $89.99). firstname.lastname@example.org
ODRs are designed in the United States and produced in Italy with the best craftsman the industry has to offer. We ship from our warehouses located in the USA so your order arrives fast via FedEx.
There is a FIND YOUR FIT button that takes the hassle out of size selection using our custom built wizard. It can be found on the Eclipse and R-43 product page. We HIGHLY recommend this feature for finding your perfect fit. You can also always reach us via email at email@example.com subject: sizing.
LEARNING TO RIDE ODR'S
Most major resorts require steel edges and high ankle support as their main criteria. Our products all have integrated steel edges, high ankle support and no loose parts. As a result we typically find that resorts have no issues with our products on their groomed slopes. As a community we have skied thousands of peaks around the world ! Looking forward to seeing where you take your ODR SKIS by tagging us @odrskis on Instagram.
Everyone is different when it comes to winter sports. That said, in our experience learning how to use ODR SKIS is much faster and easier than learning how to ski or snowboard. If you have previous ice skating experience you will find it extremely fast to pick up. We like to say you Learn in a Day & Love for a Lifetime.
