TECHNICAL INFORMATION

What is Mountain Touring

The Mountain Touring is our definition of cross-country skiing in the mountains.
Go for it, create your climbing route far away from the ski resorts.
Go back down to where the snow looks better and the slope is less exposed to avalanche risks.
For authentic cross-country skiing.
Given the wild nature of the mountainous surroundings, you must have good technique, prepare your outings and have a good understanding of your avalanche safety equipment.
Do not go out by yourself.

Bindings

FREE TOUR ski touring pin bindings. DIN 4 to 10 You don't need to add a leash because of the ski brakes. This makes it easier to get your ski boots on and is safer than a leash in the event of an avalanche. You can switch between the 3 elevator positions (1 flat and 2 climbing positions) using a ski pole without taking the boots out of the bindings. To switch to climbing mode, press the heel support of the ski brake to turn the heel. Compatible with Dynafit ski crampons.

Binding adjustment

The FREE TOUR bindings are compatible with ski boots with pin inserts.
ski length = 162 cm / Binding adjustment for boots from 257 to 307 mm
ski length = 170 cm / Binding adjustment for boots from 267 to 317 mm
ski length = 178 cm / Binding adjustment for boots from 287 to 337 mm
Adjustment requires a torx screwdriver or a socket spanner (8mm), a small and large slotted screwdriver. Preferably, get your bindings adjusted in store

Skins

The skins are precut to fit the sidecuts of the skis. They are made of 70% mohair and 30% synthetic materials – the ideal compromise in terms of gliding performance (when climbing in order to save energy) and grip (when climbing in order to reduce the backslide effect).
The skins are all fitted with a metal loop on the front to fit most ski tips and an adjustable camlock on the back to fit the skin to the back of the ski. It is important to dry your skins thoroughly in the open air

Construction

The FR950 is constructed with a Karuba wood core and carbon along its entire length (visible at the tail in the WEDZE marking, CARBON INSIDE). What's the advantage of this construction? It offers responsiveness and is lightweight.

Durability

Semi-cap construction to avoid chipping your skis when they get crossed.
Predominantly black bases for easy repairs.

Preparation

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

What is a camber?

When placing a ski on the ground, its points of contact are found near the nose and tail, whereas the middle of the ski (under the bindings) is slightly raised (this is the camber). The longer and higher the camber, the greater the edge grip and more responsive the ski. The lower the camber, the more forgiving the ski and the better the handling it has.

What is a rocker?

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 floatation 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 sidecuts have 3 measurements, the width of the nose(front of ski), the waist (middle of ski) and the tail (back of ski). The wider the nose, the easier it is to start a turn. The slimmer the waist, the more edge grip the ski will have on hard snow. The wider the waist, the more comfortable and stable the ski is in changing snow conditions. The wider the tail, the more stable the ski is in turns. The slimmer the tail, the easier it is to side-slip.

Autoride rocker

Light rocker at the nose and tail, camber under the foot. This shape provides manoeuvrability and tolerance upon changing snow conditions. It has the manoeuvrability of a shorter ski when side-slipping and the stability of a longer ski as soon as you use the ski edges.
