Ever had your array of skis slide off the side of your car, leaving a gouge in the paint on your new Tesla and a laceration in your scalp? Get the ski bumper and relax. Comes from Colorado, for some odd reason I had to go all the way to Germany to see it. Another hint we are global?
In any case, I love this kind of stuff. Solves a problem. Only downside I can see is you don’t really want to leave the Ski Bumper on your car while you’re driving, it sticks with fairly powerful magnets but could certainly fly off. No need to create highway projectiles. Screw holes are indicated if you want permanent fixation somewhere. Looks like a good gift for a birthday or something. Check out the website. Get two if you tend to ski tour with more than a couple of people. A version is also available for fishing rods and other implements of the hunter gatherer.
