Show Description

No need to make a trade off betweeen a good climber and a fun-to-ski rig. Dedicated backcountry skiers who dig the climbs nearly as much as the descent will love this pre-preg carbon ski with an ultra-light wood core. At 105mm under foot with an early rise tip and tail, these sticks are a great choice for soft conditions, dawn-to-dusk missions and anywhere you want extra float without losing flex. An ABS tail protector with integrated skin-clip tab keeps your skins in place right to the last lap of the day.

  • Sandwich construction uses carbon fibre and a ultralight balsa flax wood core.
  • Pre-preg carbon fibre layup offers torsional stiffness and balanced flex.
  • Titanal mounting plate is light and strong.
  • Versatile 105-mm waist with early rise tip and tail finds itself at home on soft snow and performs well in packed snow.
  • Slight positive camber underfoot helps ensure smooth downhill performance.
  • 5mm bevelled ABS sidewalls create torsional stiffness and add grip.
  • ABS tail protector with integrated skin attachment notch allows for simple and quick transitions.
  • Designed for 70% soft snow, 30% hard or groomed conditions.
