Structure - Construction

  • Sandwich sidewalls  :

    Sandwich sidewalls for extraordinary smooth ski/snow contact and great terrain adaptation. A MUST for Park and Pipe and performance proven in the race Milieu! Laminated sandwich sidewall construction enables to combine appropriate material layers for targeted performance.

  • Laminate titanium layer  :

    Titanium layer delivers power and fast edge-to-edge transfers.

  • Basalt layer  :

    Used in building highways throughout the world, a Basalt layer in the ski provides outstanding dampening and vibration resistance.

  • 100% wood core from tip to tail  :

    Provides optimum stability and powerful rebounce. Better contact ski/snow and reduces vibrations.

  • Low density woodcore  :

    The composite core density is lower which makes it 20% lighter without making it weaker.

  • RKS (Stabilisation du Rocker)  :

    Fiber composite reinforcement that allows easy and precise turns 

  • Honeycomb structured tips  :

    Tips are ultralight and offer a better floatability. Less swing weight for added manoeuverability et more control. Better dampening and durability.

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.

Technology

  • All-Terrain Rocker 2.0  :

    Absorption of terrain variations

    70% of the ski is in contact with the snow when it sits flat on the ground. 90% of it is in contact with the snow when it is on the edges. 

Rocker type

  • Tip and tail rocker  :

    Full length rocker perfect for surfing powder. It floats easily and ensures smooth and effortless turns. Landings are easier too.

Interface

  • X-Track plate  :

    Optimal power transmission

Various

  • Chassis X  :

    Carbon diagonal reinforcement in the medial part of the ski. That increases torsional stiffness, grip and stability.

  • Heel protection
  • Tip protector  :

    Carbon reinforcement increasing the reactivity and the stiffness in torsion without compromising the weight of the ski.
