If your constituency includes focused missions in deep snow, the District puts flotation and versatility in bounds. It's an all-around ski that's light enough for mid-range touring, but has enough girth to float in soft conditions and plow through heavy crud. The dimensions are big enough to offer up predictability and stability when the conditions get mixed and motley.
- Semi-cap construction. Glossy nylon topsheet over a tri-directional glass layer provides torision and flex.
- Core is alternating strips of paulownia and poplar woods from tip to tail, making it light yet strong. Strips are sandwiched between layers of 7000 series Titanal aluminum.
- Dual density sidewalls energy-absorption and stability.
- Minimal camber feels agile and stable underfoot.
- Early rise profile has a short running surface with aggressive rise in the tip and a rockered tail for confident running in soft conditions.
- Designed for freeski touring in mixed conditions and powder
Sandwich and combination construction is generally used for big freeride-style skis while the lighter structural cap type of construction is more commonly found on cross-country skis.
