With a pattern on the base that grips, you can yo-yo the trees without stopping to put on your skins. Inspired from rockered ski technology of larger freeride skis, the Vector BC offers a hybrid rocker for forgiving and controllable turn initiation. The wood/carbon core keeps the weight down and makes these skis the choice for crushing long, low-angle approaches, technical descents, and deep snow runs.
- Lightweight aspen wood and carbon core construction.
- Flat deck design with structural cap provides rigidity while saving weight.
- Early rise tip and a slight rise in tail for predictable turns in deep soft conditions.
- Traction pattern on the base underfoot.
|Ideal for||Off-track touring|
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.
Often called "fish scale" skis, waxless skis are designed so you don't need to apply kick wax. However, you may still want to apply glide wax for a better glide. They are a good option for those who don't like waxing, or for regions where temperatures can vary greatly throughout the day.
