do your homework
CAN I PURCHASE JUST THE BOOT & BINDING SYSTEM?
Yup, just order the number of boots/bindings you need through the shopping cart. The system you choose will come with installation instructions, screws and a jig! This is a great way to go if you already have that perfect ski, a little time and a few tools!
WHICH SYSTEM IS THE EASIEST TO INSTALL?
The Gen III Fixed Heel is the Evil Elf’s choice for easy installation! You will need to invest time to prep your ski/board; de-bur the top sheet and side walls, fill all holes from bindings, file, bevel, de-bur and polish the edge (We don't encourage sharp edges and drinking, no good!). If ya got a bench set up, figure at least 30-45 minutes. The installation will vary based on number of bindings and ski construction, but ya better figure at least 15 – 30 minutes per binding if ya got the correct tools and are sober!
HOW MANY SHOTZ FIT ON A SKI?
It’s all based on the size of the ski/board and the correct spacing between the bindings. As a rule of thumb we like to have no less than 15.5” for spacing. The graphics also can affect spacing as the Shotz need to look perfect!
Here is a general size/binding ratio:
- 150 cm and less – two bindings
- 150 cm – 170 cm three
- 175 cm – 213 cm four bindings
- 213 cm and up for five
Where are shotzskis made?
We strive to buy from the most local manufactures we can. All boot and binding parts are made within 50 miles of our World Headquarters. Our wooden skis are made in house by the Evil Elf and his Savage Monkey Gang, and custom graphics are printed by our best Beaver buddy right down the street. Here at ShotzSki it is a true community effort to put that smile on your face and special sauce in your belly!
CAN I CREATE MY OWN Shotzski SKI DESIGN?
Yup, Custom to Super Custom! We have an in house graphic designer who can work with you to create custom skis for weddings, company promotions , events, resorts, bars and restaurants. The Shotz boots can also be customized with a logo printed on the side and/or back of the boot. Your custom design is then applied onto our skis hand built and shaped here at the world HQ.
Does the evil elf Create designs too?
Yup, Evil Elf is stoked to announce his latest from his workshop - Evil Elf Creations. Here, we've developed our very own ski design and skis! If you want something a little more, authentic, then contact Evil Elf with your ideas and we'll do our best to get you what you're looking for (to check-out what we've already come up go to the Evil Elf Designed Graphics section of the store)
DO YOU SHIP TO COUNTRIES OUTSIDE OF THE USA?
Yup, we believe in world peace here and know that ShotzSkis delivered worldwide may bring us one step closer to it. We always work to find the quickest and most cost effective carrier.
