Skier Ability: Advanced to Expert: Skipping the blue runs to get to the black runs, but sometimes a little cautious when it gets very steep, or some hesitation when your buddy says, ''You just have to clear those rocks or else you're toast.''
Ideal Target Skier: Weekend Warrior/Charger: These skiers were once upon a time ski bums, or very proficient skiers in college, then landed an internship that led to a 70 hour work week and a spouse and 2.5 kids. They are still great skiers, and ski hard every chance they get on steeps, moguls, powder... whatever they can get their hands on.
Speed: Very Fast: Skiing at this speed means keeping up with the best skiers on the mountain, while still maintaining control.
Sandwich Construction (SW): SW means that the sides of the skis are a vertical wall rather the rounded Cap construction found on most skis. Since none of the skis material needs to be exerting force maintaining shape at the edges, SW skis are stiffer than their Cap counterparts. Most people find SW skis to be damper, that is more glued to the snow, superior at high speed GS turns and top notch at busting through crud or choppy snow.
Liquid Metal Technology: The state of the art highest performance ski layer you can buy. Resting below the ski surface, the Liquid Metal layer provides the highest level of rebound with the lowest level of breakdown. English? Skis with liquid metal provide great pop from turn to turn for lively skiing and the layer does not go limp over time so after 40 days on the hill your ski still performs fresh. There's a lot of techno mumbo jumbo we could put in here, all you really need to know is this ski will offer higher race like performance for a long time.
Metal Jacket: High speeds require high stability. There is no topsheet more resistant to vibration than metal topsheets. If stability at top speeds is your main concern then this feature is a must.
Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.
Intelligence Technology: Allows for a transfer of energy throughout the ski to provide stabilization at higher speeds. When the ski begins to shake in front of the binding electricity is transmitted forward through the ski to stiffen it up, thus anticipating the vibration (chatter) and reducing it.
UHM C Base: The most durable, quickest base material on the market. It requires very little maintenance and allows your skis to do what they are made to do until you decide you've hit so many rocks that it needs a tune.
