Product Info

Scott Crusade Skis 2012: The Scott Crusade Skis have a new construction, improving this tried and tested ski by losing some weight. The all-condition Crusade skis feature a wide body and Venturi-Tip Rocker, making it the ideal choice for deep snow and crud. The narrow waist and the Venturi-Tip/Tail reduce surface friction and provide superior performance on firm terrain.

Product Details

Shape

The Venturi-Tip Rocker (Medium: 300/400mm) combines a hollowed shape with a rocker tip, resulting in a design that effectively decreases the ski’s surface pressure in deep snow while the Rockered tip is elevated to the surface to improve ski handling. This yields a highly versatile performer in both deep snow and variable conditions that has excellent float and turn initiation and stability at high speeds in all conditions.

Dual Radius creates a more versatile ski that can turn when you want it to.

Pre-Track means Scott skis have wide tips and slightly turned up tails for a variable effective edge depending on the terrain you’re on.

Construction

SSCL VTT is a Sandwich Sidewall Construction with a Laminate top and bottom sheet. Forgiving and responsive, the SSCL has specific braiding and laminate combination to guarantee the best possible construction for its intended use. VTT (Venturi) in the tip and tail, exclusive to Scott skis, increases airflow from the tip of the ski to the tail and allows the ski to track with less pressure from the snow. The result is a lively ski that performs exceptionally both on piste and off.

Factory Finish with side edges ground at 89 degrees, base edges ground between .5 and .8 degrees for exceptional performance, and base finished with a micro structured CNC stone grind

Flex

A hardwood core with laminates makes the Venture more forgiving but still lively.

Dimensions

13.5m @ 169cm 130/90/118, 15m @ 179cm 133/92/122, 16.5m @ 189cm 135/93/123

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

    Comments about Scott Crusade Skis 2012:

    These are the best blend of playfulness and stability I've ever found. They can cruse and carve at speed and ski pow in the trees with ease and float. I'm 5'7" and 190lb and skiing on a 179. They ski shorter so don't go too short. I have the previous "heavier" model. When I carry them through the parking lot I think "wow these are big and heavy". Then I get them on my feet and they get light and playful. Great off piste in almost any snow. Good float and maneuverablity in any soft snow. They track incredibly well in deep snow. Not sure whether it's the Venturi Tip, but they only go where I want them to. Super FUN! They grip and carve on firm western snow. Though I moved the mounting back a centimeter from the boot/ski centered mark to improve the hard snow grip. I have demo binders so this was easy. Made a huge difference. They are not a solid ice ski. But if it's solid ice I usually head home. Sorry. Spoiled western skier. Best all around ski I've ever owned.

    Comments about Scott Crusade Skis 2012:

    I have these set up with some Marker Barons, which unfortunately makes them pretty heavy with skins attached. If I could do again, I'd put on a lighter binding and make them a pure powder ski. They're wide at the tip, but not too fat underfoot, which makes them easy to carve but also super floaty. The tip shape is fun and helps keep the tips afloat and the graphic is super stylish, I get compliments all the time.
