These skis are a powerful tool for light and fast ski mountaineering. A traditional shape with a bit of tip rise, plenty of camber underfoot to hold an edge on steep terrain, a durable sidewall construction, all at 1100 grams! You can ski 50° terrain on this bad boy with confidence while it only weights 10% more than a liter of water. Granted, this is an advanced/expert level ski, it's not easy to initiate a turn and doesn't butter or slarve. But if you want a reliable ski that can manage tough terrain at a featherweight, look at this sweet ski. A tip notch would be nice for such a lightweight style of stick, but I understand that isn't Blizzards style. I think the perfect pairing for this light and fast ski mountaineering machine is a ski trab gara titan (color match because aesthetic matters), a Scarpa F1 LT (or Alien RS if you can find one!) and the Pomoca race 2.0 skins. My palms are sweaty just typing that. Powerful ski for expert skiers possible of HUGE mountaineering missions.
