True to its roots, the UltraVector is designed for long approaches and crossing over rolling terrain. With a pattern on the base that grips, you can motor up a mellow rise without stopping to put on your skins. The softer flex and shorter turning radius adds versatility to make them a real backcoutry tool. The wood/carbon core keeps the weight down, so you can push far into the hinterland, power up steep ascents, and get a buzz from ripping a deep-snow run or threading a technical descent.
- Lightweight aspen wood core keeps the weight low.
- 2 layers of carbon fibre provides torsional stiffness with minimal weight gain.
- Flat deck with structural cap provides rigidity while saving weight.
- Early rise tip and a slight rise in tail for predictable turns in deep, soft conditions.
- Polyamide topsheet is durable and shed snow easily.
- Traction pattern on the base underfoot.
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.
User weight range
A good starting point for selecting ski or snowboard length. You might choose a shorter or longer length based on terrain and ability.
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.
