EXTRA TECH &/OR GEOMETRY
Titanal Swallow Tail
The softer tip floats & initiates turns easily while the stiffer tail provides power, stability & high speed control.
5CUT™ MULTI-RADIUS SIDECUT:
FIVE different radiuses are blended into the ski’s sidecut. The result? A wide variety of turn shapes and an intuitive feel.
Ultra-High Density Polyethylene vertical walls over the edges absorb vibrations and provide powerful energy transmission.
A dramatic tail knockout de-couples the farthest reaches of the effective edge while simultaneously forcing the tail of the ski down in soft snow. The result is a ski that can be ridden at shorter lengths without sacrificing performance. An eye-catcher for sure in the liftline but it's not just eye-candy, Eric Pollard pushed for this design after experiencing its advantages in surfing and snowboard designs. The swallowtail design is as important as what it is as what it's not! The absence of material in the tail drastically reduces weight while the shape maintains a long effective edge for arching turns and staying in control. In powder, the tail drops you back in the snow lifting your tips for ample flotation while maintaining a neutral skiing stance so you're not in the backseat trying to stay afloat. For those concerned about durability have no fear, the tail is reinforced with titanal so stay in once piece.
CARBON FLAX TAPE:
Carbon Stringers offset by Flax Taping create added stiffness without the pingy, deflective properties of Carbon.
The tip and tail lift away from the snow to bring the contact points closer to the center of the ski. This increases a ski's lift in deep snow and allows it to engage more quickly on hardpack when rolled over on edge.
