Technical information

Which skier are you?

If for you freeriding isn't only about powder snow and you already have an intermediate Freeriding level, the Patrol is your ski. Like the ski patrollers it is named after, the Patrol will support you in all the snow conditions. If like the ski patrol you don't want any doubt about your equipment when you put on your skis, the Patrol will be fun no matter the conditions. It is THE standout pair for intermediate skiers.

Description:

Grippy, stable and secure on hard snow, it has good buoyancy when the snow is softer, in powder or spring snow. The Patrol has directional shape, which enables good manoeuvrability in carved or drifted turns. The 19 m radius, neither to long or too short, enables you to vary the type of turn you use. The rockers are tight and low to enable good stability.
In 175cm 136/95/118mm, r=17.5m
In 185cm 136/95/120 mm, r=19m

Construction:

Woodcore Tec is a construction with a wooden core (poplar) and vertical edges. The advantage of this construction? It gives the ski excellent rebound, particularly pleasant on powder snow. It enables the ski to be playful underfoot in powder snow without sacrificing all grip on groomed slopes.

Tip rubber:

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

Sturdiness:

Black sole for easier repairs.
Structured topsheet to best resist scratches and semi-cap to prevent scaling.
Metal reinforcement on the heel.

Preparation:

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

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.

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.
