G3 Infidel Skis 2012

G3 Infidel Skis 2012: A descent ski doesn’t need to be uber wide to be uber good. On its first day of testing, the G3 Infidel Skis earned the nickname “smile factory” because of their remarkable ability to dominate both the groomers and the big snow days. It shares the SweetRise camberline and Titanal deck construction with the Highball and, at 97mm underfoot, it’s the freeride ski for everyday fun.
Shape
Sweet Rise rocker style is the new freeride camberline that provides a continuous negative curvature matched with the ski sidecut, making the ski ready to initiate a perfect turn, at will, in any conditions. The skier can choose when the ski tips and tail will start working for him in challenging snow conditions.
Variable J sidecut means a longer turning radius in the front half and a shorter turning radius in the rear. This has a more predictable initiation and mid turn stability with a reserve of power for the exit.
Construction
Edge construction of high strength Carbon steel alloy and a single density sidewall for the best compromise of dampening and energy transfer to the ski edge
Low mass tip geometry helps create reduced top flutter, high speed jitters and a more balanced swing weight
Flex
PowerRide construction: Poplar wood care with 3 layers of multi-axial fiberglass + Titanal deck offer the best possible torsion rigidity and energy return delivering the most power and stability .
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Alpine Touring
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    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.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • 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.
  • Core/Laminates: Metal, 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.
