For dedicated backcountry skiers, the Route 105 has floaty dimensions, tough materials and damp, yet responsive performance. You'll find the power and control you need for ticking big lines and technical couloirs, and durability that lasts through seasons of dawn patrols, powder laps and regular touring abuse. Fiberglass layup, poplar wood core and flat construction add torsional stiffness and durability that make it ideal for 100-day seasons in the backcountry. A versatile 105mm waist tackles the full gamut of conditions, and the rockered profile improves performance on the skin track and in deep snow.
- Sandwich construction uses pre-preg fiberglass layup and a poplar wood core.
- Pre-preg fibreglass layup offers torsional stiffness and balanced flex.
- 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.
- Designed for 70% soft snow, 30% hard or groomed conditions.
