With a 94mm waist and Mountain Rocker profile, these sticks keep you afloat in the soft stuff while letting you lay it down on hardpack. Inside the Tubelite wood core you’ll find light carbon tubes to add stability and a powerful rebound, with fiberglass reinforcements to stiffen the ski for optimal downhill performance. Vapor Tip inserts further reduce weight and dampen vibrations for a smooth ride while you’re plowing through crud, so you can confidently rip anything the backcountry throws at you with enough gas in the tank for an extra lap at the end of the day. Comes with G3 Ion bindings.
