With the same versatile platform as the iconic 112RP2 series, the 99 blends downhill performance with the speed and lightness of a full-fledged touring ski. When slicing corners in hardpack, the rocker and variable sidecut provide outstanding edge control and power. In soft or mixed snow, you can draw on the gradually rockered paddle tech shape for float and smooth arcing out. For alpine tours with high-intensity descents, the on-edge, off-edge performance lets you get creative and ski through whatever soft, crusty or weirdly mixed conditions you come across.
- Tour1 construction is a backcountry build that emphasizes fast ascents and class-leading downhill performance. Carbon laminate is exceptionally light with moderate damping, power and edge hold.
- Balsa wood core combined with a larger-than-ever sweet spot results in a ski that's stable, floaty and lively in the turns.
- Full cap construction with a textured nylon top sheet.
- Paddle tech sidecut is tapered, with flatter sections that blend at the contact points to make it a smooth, smooth driver.
- Narrow profile Rockwell 48 steel edges provide excellent edge control without sacrificing a playful, floaty ride.
- World Cup Race base is fast and hard for exceptional performance.
Beginner: new or getting back into skiing. Intermediate: confident with turning and stopping. Advanced: highly confident carver. Expert: steeps, drops, park, double blacks -- bring it on.
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.
