Shape
Full Cam camROCK is designed with 100% traditional camber and contact points for stability at speed and energy transmission on packed snow.
All Mountain Sidecut equals a round radius shape for performance in variable conditions.
Construction
Energy Frame Composite CA construction
XBI CT Integrated technology is a fully integrated system over the wood core of the ski to allow perfect transmission of skier movements from the boots all the way to the edge of the ski - delivering an amazing "glued to the snow" sensation. Integrated design and X-Balance engineering provide a perfectly round flex curve that allows the ski to perform with tip-to-tail edge hold, putting the whole ski in the user’s control. X-Balance technology redistributes pressure along the length of the ski automatically correcting for skier fore/aft balance errors.
UHMW sintered graphite Electra Gallium base

Core and Flex Pattern
Composite Mono Wood core is versatile in all conditions and forgiving for intermediate skiers.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Carving
    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.
    Carving
    For those that like the classic feeling of laying a ski over on edge and arcing a perfect turn, carving skis are what you want. These skis have narrower waists and shorter turn radii for edge to edge quickness and responsive turn initiation and exit on groomed runs and hard pack. The beginner-intermediate skis in this category are designed to make learning how to turn as easy as going from pizza to French fries.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Camber
    Camber
    Camber is the traditional profile for skis offering skiers lots of edge hold, especially on harder snow. A cambered ski has a smooth arch underfoot and contact points near the tip and tail when unweighted. Camber skis excel at carving on hard snow; you won’t ever see a ski racer on anything other than cambered skis.
  • Core/Laminates: Composite, Wood
  • Tail Type: Flat
    Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
