Tonic Skis 2012: The G3
Tonic Ski floats effortlessly in powder due to its early tip rise and reduced camber underfoot. It also turns easily and predictably. The low mass tip makes the ski balanced fore and aft, and a dual density sidewall means the high speed jitters and nervousness of other skis in variable snow conditions is a thing of the past. If you like to sit back, relax and let your skis do the work, take a big draught of this Tonic.
Early Rise 1 camberline shape is G3’s basic early tip rise combined with just the right amount of camber underfoot. This is an easy initiation to the modern freeride feel of effortless floatation with a shorter running surface in firm snow and longer running surface in soft snow resulting in a more agile yet stable ski.
Variable q sidecut means a shorter turning radius in the front half of the ski and a longer turning radius in the rear. This has effortless turn initiation and a tail that allows you to modulate your turns and dump speed progressively.
Dual density ABS/TPU sidewall construction is comprised of 2 different densities of ABS and TPU so that the softer, lower layer acts as a shock absorption system while the harder, upper layer allows for direct energy transfer to ski edges.
Low mass tip geometry creates reduced tip flutter, high speed jitters and a more balanced swing weight.
JoyRide construction: Poplar wood core has the best weight-to-strength ratio meaning relatively lightweight skis that are very durable
A 4 multi-axial fiberglass classic is G3’s original construction with 2 layers of multi-axial glass both above and below the wood core. This means reinforcement for loading from all directions for a more stable, solid ride. It is the dampest non-metallic construction available.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
