Carbon Fiber Skis_how come they never caught on?

I know production is expensive......but besides that, it would seem there's alot to be said for CF. A couple yrs back Audi Engineering & Dev. made some headway and showed some skis.....then nothing. Goode has great poles but I'm not sure where they're at on their skis.

I ski on a pair of Volkl VWerks Code Speedwalls and they are CF, Ti and Kevlar. I'd say they are an amazing ride... quick, fast, light but expensive.

The VWorks Code "Full Sensor wood core".....is CF?
I was looking for their weight.....couldn't find it in the specs.

yes the skis are wood core with top skin of CF / Kevlar and Ti. Not sure of the weight either but I can assure you they are lighter by maybe 20% or more than other skis I've owned.
