Does carrying your heavy skis to the slopes put a damper on your ski experience?
College News is about to introduce you to Ski-Z, a pocket-sized ski tote designed to ROLL your skis!
This amazing invention is quickly becoming the center of attention in ski industries around the world. It was recently unveiled on ABC’s famous Shark Tank and has been picking up massive speed in sales ever since.
Ski-Z is designed with a single wheel that simply attaches to the front of your skis with a handy Velcro strap. You can push it, pull it and turn it on a dime!
Ski-Z is the world’s first patented ski device designed to ROLL your skis, and it’s hitting the market NOW!
Kyle Allen is the inventor of this clever device, and we found his story intriguing.
Kyle came up with the clever idea of Ski-Z while he was on a family ski trip. His three daughters were young and not strong enough to carry their own skis, so he offered to carry them.
In the middle of his struggle to the slopes, he found himself thinking, “There must be an easier way!”
That night, he started brainstorming and found himself searching the web trying to find a solution to his problem. To his surprise, he found nothing!
Following his research, he went into his daughter’s closet, found a pair of rollerblades, and took them apart piece by piece. He took one of the wheels and looked for small gadgets around the house that would allow him to attach the wheel to his skis. Later, he took his homemade ski tote to have a molding created.
Last July, Kyle and his wife Tanya were in Denver, at a restaurant having dinner. Tanya asked her entrepreneur husband what project he wanted to focus on next. Kyle said his dream was to get his invention Ski-Z on the TV show Shark Tank.
Tanya reached for her phone and looked up Shark Tank audition dates and locations. They were shocked to find out that the last auditions for the year were one week from that day, and they were going to be held right there in Denver!
They quickly called their friend and business partner Nick Palermo. He was onboard to be on the show and “the next five months were crazy!”
From the first audition in Aspen, Colorado, to the live filming of Shark Tank in Culver City, California, Team Ski-Z were unstoppable! Their pitch was a huge success!
On December 2, they made a deal with Barbara Corcoran for $50,000 and 15 percent of their company.
Team Ski-Z and Barbara are currently on fire for Ski-Z and they are thrilled to be the first to bring Ski-Z to the students through College News!
