SMB: A powder ski with perks – Available in 156cm,165cm, 177cm, 187cm, 194cm


The SMB is a fat ski. Oh, how we love fat skis. This little baby makes 15cm of fresh feel like 50. When you’re floating across the top, who would know? The SMB gets its ravest reviews back from customers in Japan, but lots of patrollers use it as their everyday work ski – especially here in the Canterbury Club fields.

Would you like upgrade to our full carbon construction?

A full carbon pair of Kingswoods is our most epic set-up. We sandwich our bamboo core between two 500g/m2 carbon fibre sheets, and of course use the same thick edges and base material. The result is a highly-responsive, incredibly stable, yet very light ski (20% lighter). The flex will last forever and the feel is sublime.

Techy stuff:

A three point radius with a tapered tip and tail allows for a good amount of sidecut without being too wide at the tip and tail. This makes this ski more buttery and easier to turn with a “less hooky” feel.

Tip and tail rocker mean the skis turn easily even on hard snow.

These skis are made with:

– Bamboo core and sidewalls
– Black sintered bases
– Textured, sublimated topsheet
– Toughened steel edges
– Tri-axial fibreglass


The SMBs are (quite frankly) the best skis I’ve ever used. They handled the piste just fine and were superb in the powder.

The ski for the day is the Kingswood SMB – oh wait, that’s the ski for every day.

Broken River Snow Report, on SMB

I took my SMB’s to Cragieburn today and was so blown away by them. Keep doing what you’re doing. Kingswood rocks.

Dylan, on SMB

As I shuffled through town to the supermarket via the wine shop there were numerous positive comments. One local powderhead even volunteered (approvingly) info on their pedigree!

Mark, on SMB

If you’re looking for a solid, stable soft-snow ski that is strong on edge, planes well, and is easy to pivot, then I would be shocked if you are disappointed in the SMB.
