Technical information

Which skier are you?

If to you a valley filled with snow is like a wave to surf. If to you skiing means creativity, the Slash is your ski. Designed for intermediate freeriders who do not necessarily have a lot of technical skill and are looking for a ski that floats, drifts, jumps, the Slash is for you: it is easy to manoeuvre, easy and playful. We have designed the Slash for intermediate freeriders seeking a playful ski to have fun during long days on the skis.

Description:

With a 17m radius, fairly short for a freeride ski, the Slash is perfect for playing on every little bump that the mountain has to offer. It is shaped like a playful ski - the pronounced long and progressive rockers guarantee buoyancy and easy handling in powder snow.

In 165 cm 133/100/124 mm, radius 13 m (in pink only)
In 174 cm 133/100/124 mm, radius 15 m
In 183 cm 133/100/124 mm, radius 17 m (in green only)

Construction:

Light Woodcore Tec is a designed with a light wood core (Palownia) reinforced with fibreglass for responsiveness and basalt fibres to dampen shocks. The advantage of this construction? It gives the ski pop, particularly useful when you want to use all the little bumps on the mountain to play, jump and slash. It enables the ski to be relatively playful on all terrains and snow.

Tip and tail rubber:

The ski has a rubber insert on the tip and tail. This insert aims to cushion distortion and reduce vibrations caused by the Rockers.

Sturdiness:

Black sole for easier repairs.
Reinforced topsheet to best resist scratches and semi-cap to prevent scaling.

Preparation:

Ready-to-use waxed and sharpened skis. Edges sharpened at 89°.

What are ski sidecuts?

The sidecut is determined by 3 measurements: the width of the tip (front of the ski), the waist (middle of ski) and tail (back of ski). The wider the tip, the easier the turn entry. The narrower the waist, the stronger the grip in hard snow. The wider the waist, the more comfortable and stable in different snow conditions. The wider the tail, the better the grip exiting the turn. The narrower the tail, the better the glide.

What is a camber?

On a "rocker" ski, the nose, and sometimes the tail, comes off the ground much sooner than with a cambered ski. This moves the points of contact towards the centre of the ski. The surface of the ski in contact with the snow is shortened: they have better handling and more buoyancy on soft snow. When leaning into turns, the edge length offers more grip on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the better the handling of the ski.
