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