The reason is simple. Their 3D Metal Sandwich construction combines terrain-absorbing dampness with stiff ribs to bust through powder, groomers, and weird sun-cupped crud. With over 100mm of full-cambered waist underfoot, you’ll be able lock into powerful turns and hold that edge when you need it the most – if you’re in a no-fall zone chute or to avoid the snowboarder that just cut you off.
The one place these skis don’t outshine all the others is in the park. They can handle it, but it’s like driving a Hummer in the city. They’re too jam-packed with features to unlock your freeriding potential to waste solely on groomers in bounds. Strap them to your pack and take them out to where the crowds don’t venture and you’ll appreciate that they weigh less than 10 pounds.
There’s no stopping what these skis can do.
Any conditions. Any terrain. And a rock-bottom price.
