The Jib is a value version of the Tom Wallisch competition park ski pro model, the Jib TW. It's the same shape and virtually the same construction. Where the TW gets the fastest, hardest base material for generating speed into park features, the Jib has less expensive material. And the Jib lacks the edge-reinforcing metal inserts found the the Jib TW. Otherwise, like the TW, it's a fat twin-tip jibber with waist widths ranging from 84 to 87 mm (depending on length; as with many Scott models, the waist width and tip/tail dimensions vary from length to length to provide consistent performance throughout the size run). Near-symmetrical sidecut optimizes switch riding performance. Scott's 3Dimension Sidecut breaks the ski into three sections, with a straight section underfoot and traditional sidecut radii in the tip and tail. This is designed to improve stability at speed and give the ski a playful, easy-pivoting feel. The Jib TW is a wood-core laminate construction. Extra sturdy edges, designed to withstand rail-grinding punishment, have been further reinforced this year with metal inserts over the edges for increased edge-grip and durability.
