G3 Manhattan Skis 2012

G3 Manhattan Skis 2012: The G3 Manhattan Skis offer a remarkable fusion of power and agility. At 108mm underfoot, it’s super easy to steer and super solid through challenging snow, with a progressive camberline. Sandwich construction and Titanal reinforcement create confidence in any terrain
Shape
Early Rise 2 camber line is more advanced early tip rise with just the right amount of camber underfoot resulting in enhanced freeride performance, better floatation and easy steering for bigger skis.
Variable J sidecut means a longer turning radius in the front half and a shorter turning radius in the rear. This has 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 core for best weight-to-strength ration resulting in relatively lightweight skis that are very durable
4 multi-axial fiberglass + tuned Titanal 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, Powder
    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.
    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/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • 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.
