Breathing life and joy into the alpine sufferfest, The Nocturne’s minimal weight allows you to go the distance, but features more freeride oriented geometry. The slightly rockered tails, progressive mount point and medium turn radius enables a freeride-inspired approach to technical terrain. The aluminum tail block shape is designed to easily penetrate stubborn snowpack on a techy skin track or when you’re setting up a ski anchor. Aided by our stability-enhancing Algal Core and Algal Wall, these attributes facilitate balanced hop turns and swift descents from distant places.
All new for 23/24, The Vital 98 pays homage to its predecessor by improving upon its precise, stable, and award-winning platform. We further optimized its strength-to-weight ratio and tightened the turn radius for added engagement when you need it most. By slightly increasing the Vital’s tip stiffness and extending the running surface, stability at speed has been improved. The inclusion of our Spiral Plate creates a more even flex from tip to tail, while the Algal Core and Algal Wall reduce weight and vibration. An updated tail block improves tail clip retention and easily punches through stubborn layers in the snowpack - a massive benefit to anchor building or tail jab kick turns in steep terrain.
The multiple award-winning Intention 108 is our most stable platform for ascending from treeline to alpine, playing amongst featured terrain, arcing down the apron or adapting to terrain and snowpack inconsistencies. The ski’s mid-range sidecut enables quick turn initiation with a side of forgiveness. The consistent tip to tail flex profile delivers a high top speed, and the advanced biobased materials used throughout the ski work to absorb vibration, maintain stability, and boost any skier’s confidence when it comes time to descend the line you’ve been dreaming of.
The Reason 120 is our widest shape, designed for flotation first and foremost, but with plenty of materials science wizardry up its sleeve to excel in many environments. Its medium flex, tighter sidecut, and smooth rocker profile integrate beautifully with our stability-enhancing Algal Core and Algal Wall, creating a buoyant backcountry tool that’s deceptively capable in a wide range of snow conditions.
