G3 Empire Skis 2013

The widest skis G3 has ever developed, the G3 Empire Skis are made with a 127 mm waist underfoot to give you superior float in the deep stuff. Combine that with the Sweet Rise 2 rocker profile and you have a pair of skis that will rip up any powder you can find. Join the Empire and see why G3 is beginning to take over the ski industry one season at a time.
Rocker Type
Sweet Rise 2 - A slightly shorter low curvature zone under foot and even larger rise in the tail and tip yields a looser tail and even more floatation in deep snow. Drifty, floaty, and fun for powerful, fast, big lines in deep west-coast powder
Core
Power Ride - A combination of fiberglass and poplar wood core blends reduced weight with stability and pop.
Laminates
PowerRide - Armed for battle with 2 sheets of Titanal aluminum and a combination of fiberglass and poplar wood core, the PowerRide construction produces bomber skis that give powerful and stable performance without weighing you down.
Base
P-Tex 2000
Binding Compatibility
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: Powder
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • 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
    Rocker
    Rocker (also called reverse-camber) is just as it sounds – camber turned upside down. Rocker skis have a side profile with a smooth downward curvature and a contact point at the middle of the ski. Rocker skis excel in deep powder. This profile provides the skis with less tip and tail hang up to prevent from catching edges and allows the skis to initiate turns extremely quickly. This profile doesn’t perform as well in icy conditions or on harder snow but if you spend lots of time in deep, untracked snow and like a more playful ski, Rocker is a great choice.
  • Turning Radius: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
