G3 District Skis 2013

The new G3 District Skis are an offshoot of the burbling success of the Tonic, but on a wider platform. With the same magical mix of skiing performance and tourability, the 112 mm waisted District caters to faster and bigger days with the addition of two thin sheets of Titanal for dampness at speed and on hard snow. The weight is still kept down by using the hybrid Poplar/Paulownia Core Light core. If you're shopping for a touring ski for those epic powder days, the G3 District is right in your neighborhood.
Rocker Type
Early Rise 3 - Extended early rise in both tip and tail with a mild positive camber zone in between yields positive control and edge control on hard surfaces with improved float and easy turn initiation in soft snow.
Core
Power Light Core - A fusion of G3's CoreLight Poplar/Paulownia core and its PowerRide freeride construction, with 2 added layers of titanal for stability and dampness and dual-density sidewalls for precise power transmission
Laminates
2 Sheets of Titanal Aluminum for smooth, vibration-free stability
Sidewalls
Dual Density ABS/TPU sidewalls

Specs

  • Terrain: Alpine Touring, Big Mountain
    Alpine Touring
    Also known as backcountry skis, alpine touring (AT) skis are designed for going uphill as well as downhill. These skis are typically light for their width and many feature fittings that accept climbing skins. AT skis vary in width and weight, with the wider heavier versions usually used for winter/deep snow touring and the skinnier, lighter skis usually used for spring/summer/long distance touring.
    Big Mountain
    Big mountain skis are designed for charging big lines with high speeds and big airs. These skis varry in width from wide, powder-oriented skis for skiing Alaska spines to narrower, mixed condition skis for ripping the beat up headwall at your local mountain. Skis in this category tend to be on the stiffer side, often with more rocker in the tip and less in the tail.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
