Technical Information

What is Resort Touring

Resort Touring is our definition of ski touring in ski resorts.
Use the routes and trails marked by the ski resorts to climb up and down with ease on the ski slopes.
This practice lets you discover ski touring and understand the technical bases of the sport.
It is also appreciated by skiers seeking a training piste or a defined route to make easy progress.

Weight (1 ski only)

Naked ski =
150 cm = 1115g
158 cm = 1215g
166 cm = 1315g
174 cm = 1415g
Weight of Tour light binding with leash = 390g

Pack

The RT 500 skis are sold as a pack with the Tour Light bindings and skins.
The binding is fitted on a plate that enables the length of the binding to be adjusted by 50 mm. It is therefore suitable for a wide range of foot sizes.
The baseplate is mounted according to an assembly plan for each size in order to suit everyone's needs.
Thanks to this fitting, you can lend your skis, change the boot size, etc.
It is a huge advantage for easily introducing people to cross-country skiing.

Ski skins

The skins provided with the RT 500 skis are sized and cut to the size and width of the ski.
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 to avoid backsliding).
The skins are fitted with a metal clip on the front to fit most ski tips and an adjustable camlock on the back to fasten the skin to the tail of the ski.

Construction

Wood Sandwich construction with straight sidewalls.
The wood used is Paulownia, which is a very lightweight wood that also offers very soft handling in all snow conditions.

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.

Camber

The RT 500 has a medium camber – good compromise between handling and edge grip.

What is a rocker?

On a "rocker" ski, the tip – and, sometimes, the tail – comes off the ground much sooner than with a cambered ski without a rocker. This shifts the points of contact towards the centre of the ski. The surface of the ski in contact with the snow is smaller: this makes the ski easier to handle and more buoyant on soft snow. When leaning into turns, the edge length offers more edge grip on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the better the handling of the ski.

Rocker

The RT 500 has a front and rear rocker (tip and tail), which provides good handling and makes it easy to turn on all types of snow.
On the slopes, this small rocker makes it very easy to effortlessly turn the skis.

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 initiate turns. 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.

Sidecuts

measurements (all sizes) = 122/78/111 cm
Sidecut radius
150 cm = 13.5m
158 cm = 14m
166 cm = 15m
174 cm = 17m

Binding adjustment length

ski length = 150 cm / Bindings adjustable for boots from 247 to 297 mm
ski length = 158 cm / Bindings adjustable for boots from 257 to 307 mm
ski length = 166 cm / Bindings adjustable for boots from 267 to 317 mm
ski length = 174 cm / Bindings adjustable for boots from 287 to 337 mm
