The G3 FINDr 94 Swift Alpine Touring Ski is a precise and capable ski for steep and technical ski terrain. This is a great tool for ski mountaineering or backcountry skiing where the up is as important as the down. The 94 cm waist width is an all-season size that doesn't any extra weight for touring up, but can confidently ski through a variety of mixed conditions on the way down.
The construction for G3's FINDr series starts with a Canadian Aspen core
layered both above and below with a multi-axial carbon fibre laminate. A textured nylon top sheet is added on top to help protect against nicks and scratches while also more easily shedding snow and ice. Then, a full-thickness PTEX base is paired with full-thickness metal edges to be added on bottom for a smooth and durable ride. G3's unique PU sidewall construction is what really sets this company's skis apart.
The PU is poured into the ski as a liquid and sets in place solid, creating a permanent bond to the wood core and a seamless sidewall on the ski. Using PU, rather than ABS, makes for a more durable ski and a more damp downhill ride. This is because PU is more elastic than ABS, so it can absorb more energy for the same amount of material. It's great to see G3 innovate in this particular segment of ski manufacturing.
Oh, and don't forget that all G3 skis also come equipped with magnetic contact points on the bases, so you can have faster transitions and less fiddling around by snapping your skis together - no straps required!
The FINDr skis have a traditional camber shape with early tip rise. This profile is intended to excel in technical ski terrain where one might find mixed snow conditions. The FINDr's provide max edge control and predicable skiability which is great when the going gets steep. The early tip rise also helps the skis stay on top of deep snow days. The FINDr 94 is has a solid construction, an innovative build, and versatile all-mountain shape. Grab a pair for fast ups and faster downs.
