TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Resort Touring

Given that it is practised on the ski area, Resort Touring is useful for getting to know cross-country skiing and rediscovering the mountains by yourself, or with friends and family.
You climb up the marked routes provided (increasingly) in certain resorts and go back down using the groomed slopes.
Your motivations:
You want to get some exercise, maintain your physical shape or get away from the crowd and commotion of the resort for an hour or half a day.

Pack

The XLD 500 RT pair of skis is available in a pack with Tyrolia Ambition 12 bindings and ski skins.
The binding is fitted to a rail for adjusting its length. 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 assembly, you can lend your skis, change boot size, etc.
This is a major advantage for easily initiating others to cross-country skiing.

Skins

The skins provided with the XLD 500 RT 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 fitted with a metal calliper that can be fastened to most ski tips and an adjustable camlock at the rear for fastening the skin to the tail of the ski.

Construction

Wood Sandwich construction with straight edges.

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.

Camber

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

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 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 easier the skis will be to handle.

Rocker

The XLD 500 RT ski has a front and rear rocker (nose and tail) for easy handling and very easy turns on all types of snow.
On groomed slopes, it is easy to effortlessly turn the skis thanks to this small rocker.

What are ski sidecuts?

The sidecuts have 3 measurements – the width of the nose (front of the ski), waist (middle of the ski) and tail (back of the ski). The wider the tip, the easier it is to initiate turns. The slimmer the waist width, the more edge grip the ski has on hard snow. The wider the waist, the more comfortable and stable the ski is in changing snow conditions. The wider the tail, the greater the stability of the ski in turns. The slimmer the tail, the easier it is to side-slip.

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