I've been riding this ski for about 2 weeks now. Yesterday, out of curiosity, I put together my trusty old 9800 which I was riding prior to trying the Rev 6. It took just 8 buoys to get back in the boat and set up the Rev 6 again. The difference was insane! I highly recommend you try this ski! Order below with FREE SHIPPING in the USA!
Introducing the 2017 editions of the Nano 1™ and Nano 1XT™, newly enhanced versions of one of the most popular and award-winning GOODE shapes of all time.
Available with either the traditional rocker (Nano 1), or asymmetrical rocker (Nano 1 XT), both skis feature the world-record breaking performance the Nano 1 series is known for, along with new graphics and an enhanced sidewall design that enlarges the sweet spot under the skier’s feet and improves tip-to-tail balance.
Nano 1 and Nano 1XT: What’s the Difference?
Both skis employ the same shape, construction material, exacting manufacturing process, and new sidewall design, but there is one key difference between them: the rocker profile.
The Nano 1 has a traditional rocker, meaning the ski’s rise from flat part of the ski to the tip begins at the same spot on both the on- and off-sides of the ski. The Nano 1 has a higher rocker quotient than the Nano 1XT, which many skiers find turns slightly better.
The Nano 1XT features the groundbreaking AsymRocker™, an asymmetrical rocker that begins at different points of the ski; earlier on the off-side, later on the on-side. Many skiers like the earlier rocker rise on their off-side because it allows the ski to finish the turn a bit better before engaging the fore body of the ski. The AsymRocker also allows the Nano 1XT to be slightly flatter than the Nano 1, which increases side-to-side speed, without sacrificing turning capabilities.
Features Found on Both the Nano 1 and Nano 1XT:
The bevels on the Nano 1 and Nano 1 XT feature a sharper bottom edge, which allows the ski to track better up course, while drastically reducing down-course slipping that makes skiers late and narrow. You’ll experience an easy, comfortable, yet extremely stable and solid connection to the water that gives you more confidence and quicker edge-to-edge performance throughout the turn and as you build angle across the wake.
The shape of the Nano 1 and Nano 1XT – narrower than the mid and wider than traditional – fits into a category of its own. Skiers of all types will immediately feel the One Shape’s phenomenal turning performance, tighter radius, and bigger sweet spot. Designed to keep the ski moving through the turn, this shape is ridiculously easy and forgiving to ski while at the same time solid and smooth.
Nano Carbon Construction – Lighter, Stronger, Better Performance
It was an industry first when we introduced our innovative nano carbon fiber construction. It is proven to enhance performance. GOODE skis constructed from nano carbon fiber and resin have higher strength-to-weight ratios and are lighter and stronger than skis built from traditional carbon fiber. Nano carbon raises the performance bar to a higher level.
Technology and Engineering That Makes A Difference
No one is more passionate about pushing the envelope of technology than GOODE. We’re committed to designing, engineering and building advanced technology that will truly exceed your expectations and take your skiing to the next level.
Nano 1 XT™ Asymmetric Rocker design – available in right or left foot forward models. Nano 1™ Traditional Rocker design – available in right or left foot forward models. Both the Nano 1 and Nano 1XT come factory installed with brass inserts that are a fraction of the weight of those used by other manufacturers. Precision finbox.

WHAT MAKES A GOODE SO GOOD?
There are a couple things so different with a Goode than with every other ski company.All of the other companies have tried to build a ski better than a Goode.They’ve copied the shape, the edges, the texture, the flex, the thickness and on and on but the one thing they have not copied is the PROCESS.Goode is the only major ski company that uses PRE-PREG carbon.PRE-PREG means the fibers that the core is wrapped with (nowadays these fibers are carbon) are pre-impregnated with catalyzed epoxy (epoxy that has the hardener already mixed in). This creates a 60/40 ratio of 60% fiber and 40% resin.This is very close to an ideal ratio.If the percentage of resin increases, strength decreases and brittleness increases, both are detrimental to high performance.Being that the carbon fiber is impregnated with a catalyzed epoxy, it must be stored in a freezer to prevent it from hardening. Once a Goode is in the mold, it stays there for roughly three hours (180 minutes) at a very high temperature.This creates a very hard, cured epoxy matrix.The harder the material, the higher the frequency the material performs at and the faster the ski responds and returns to its original shape.An additional benefit of this long mold time is the material is totally cured when it is removed from the mold.This means the ski will not change shape once it’s out of the mold.All of the other major ski companies use a lower temperature cure along with a ten-minute molding time (estimate).This lower temperature cure creates a softer matrix and thus a slower response/recovery time.Another disadvantage of this ten minute, lower temperature curing time is that the ski is what is referred to in the industry as “green”.How the ski is supported after it comes out of the mold after this ten minute molding time is very critical.A “green” ski can and will distort as it finishes cooling and curing unless it is properly supported which is not typically the case.All of the other major ski companies can build eighteen skis in the time it takes Goode to build one yet they sell theirs for roughly the same price as a Goode!Where they can take in a potential $18,000.00 (18 x a $1,000.00 ski) per hour, Goode has the potential to take in anywhere from $1,290.00 to $1,490.00 during this same time period. These other ski companies have zero incentive to build a ski with Goode's process. In fact, they can't afford to! Instead, they all are trying to build a ski to compete with Goode (which holds all the WORLD RECORDS) but mass produce it at a far cheaper cost. If Goode were to price his skis according to this 18 to 1 formula, they would sell for $23,220.00 for the 9900 series and $26,820.00 for the Wide Ride!The reality of this is that a Goode is truly a bargain, everything else is not even in the same ballpark! As Dave Goode says, "GO GOODE OR GO HOME"!

GOODE started from the ground up to design a water ski that is lighter and stronger, providing better flex control and hydrodynamics than anything on the market today.
GOODE is the first and only company to totally integrate Aerospace Carbon Fiber Composite technology into water skis.
The pure Carbon Fiber construction makes GOODE Skis the industry's lightest while still having the highest flex/torsion ratios.
Weighing less than 3 lbs., GOODE Skis have twice the physical properties of conventional water skis. GOODE Skis will not breakdown or change flex over their lifetime.

"Our goal in development of the 9800 was to design a ski that maintained the speed and turning ability of the #1 ranked 9700 and improve stability, predictability and carryout to the buoy. The All New 9800 is the result of the most intense development project ever undertaken by GOODE. I am pleased to introduce the the best ski that we have ever built.", said Dave Goode, President/Founder.
The 9800 is available in 16 different length/flex combinations we call AMP numbers. Available with the new 9800 Precision Fin Box.
