TECHNICAL INFORMATION

What is the Resort Touring

The Resort Touring is our definition of cross-country skiing in ski resorts.
Use the routes and circuits that are marked out by the ski resorts for going up the mountain and come back down comfortably using the groomed ski slopes.
This practice provides an introduction to cross-country skiing and an understanding of the basic techniques of the sport.
It is also useful for sportsmen and women who need a set training piste or route for improving without a problem.

Pack

The pair of RT 500 skis are available as a pack with Tour Light bindings and skins.
The binding is fitted to a baseplate that can be adjusted to the length of the 55mm binding. They can therefore fit as may foot sizes as possible.
The plate is assembled at the waist to fit all skiers.
This assembly enables you to lend your skis, change the size of boots, etc...
It is a huge advantage to easily discover cross country skiing.

Skins

The skins provided with the MT 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 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.

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 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.

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 taking corners, the edge length offers more edge grip on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the more manageable your 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 sides, the width of the tip (front of ski), the waist (middle of ski) and the tail (back of ski). The wider the tip, the easier it is to enter turns. The slimmer the skate, the more tenacious the ski is on hard snow. The wider the skate, the more comfortable and stable the ski is in changing snow conditions. The wider the heel, the more involved the ski is in turns. The slimmer the heel, the easier it slides.

Sidecuts

122/78/111 in size 166 cm,
Radius of 15.4 metres in size 166 cm.

Weight

Ski alone = 1315g (size 166cm).
Ski with Tour light binding: 1705g (size 166).
