RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The overall design of the ski was based on a study of the natural position of the human foot in motion. Given these assumptions, Snowfeet is designed to be safe and can only be used with ordinary winter boots. The front radius is inspired by classic winter ski so it cannot be buried in snow. The steel edges at the bottom serve for better ski control and easy skid stop. Guide rails on the base for better driving direction. The side appearance is inspired by classic racing cars such as the Mustang. The heel of the Snowfeet with a bevel from the top and sharp bumps from the bottom can be used to slow down driving or stopping. Internal non-slip surface, which is designed for both classic and Snowboard boots, is decorated with a deer image that adds grandeur to the whole ski.

CHALLENGE:
The hardest challenge was to design Snowfeet so it is manageable, safe, stoppable and cool. It took our team, led by Zbynek, for over a year of constant testing and designing.
