POWERED BY TITANIUM
Constructed of extra thin and strong aluminum alloy providing perfect dampening characteristics. The titanium setup makes the ski agile and dynamic, especially friends of a hard, fast, and aggressive riding style benefit from the quick response of this construction.
ULTIMATE VIBRATION OBJECT 3D (UVO.3D) | 157 cm
UVO.3D is the first freely rotating, vibration damper to apply cutting-edge vibration dampening technology to minimize disruptive ski vibration.
The terrain or surface below the ski inevitably generates vibrations, which in turn set the shovel in particular into motion in all directions. This significantly disrupts the smoothness of the ski ride and makes it harder to hold an edge.
The revolutionary UVO technology counteracts this, with proven dampening or reduction of vibrations in the horizontal and vertical directions as well as along the length of the ski. The ride becomes smoother and the edge grip improves.
FULL SENSOR WOOD CORE
In the Full Sensor Wood Core construction, a compact wooden core is integrated from the ski tip to the ski tail providing power and energy along the entire ski's length. The result is optimum support and responsiveness for skiers with a good feeling for the snow and slopes and seeking intuitive feedback from their skis.
A smooth, gradual bend from tip to tail, with matching sidecut and flex. Full Camber gives the skier all the benefits of added maneuverability in soft snow while also delivering smooth, graceful arcs on groomed terrain. As soon as the ski is on edge, the skier gains uninterrupted edge contact. The more the ski is on edge, the more effective the edge becomes. The resulting smoothness and predictability are truly uncanny.
For a better grip in fast and tight turns World Cup skis come with a special race finish edging. While the SL models feature 0.7° on the base and 87.6° on the side, the GS models come with a 0.8° base and 87.6° on the side.
Zebra Base Structure
The Zebra pattern is a more aggressive base structure to offer the best possible precision & steering characteristics for the front of the skis.
