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.
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.
