G3 Tonic Skis 2012

G3 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.
Shape
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.
Construction
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.
Flex
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.
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/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: 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.
