Designed to climb easily on tours and handle any terrain encountered on the ski down. A Carbon Backbone through the length of the ski provides exceptional agility and edge grip, adding only minimal grams. The Ultra Light Woodcore keeps the weight low and adds to the feeling of energy and life. HRZN Tech at the tip improves the handling and control in softer and rougher snow. Suited for those who are seeking an all-round, tour-anywhere set up. 


Terrain Type & Ability Level

Terrain Type
The width dictates that this isn’t the right option for anyone dreaming of bottomless days and fresh snow, but it does mean that the 85 is quick and nimble for skiing in tight spaces. It’s also not the skinniest ski on the mountain and will happily deal with choppier conditions and deeper snow. The flex feels nice and solid for the weight of the ski, giving it excellent edge hold and making it a good choice for skiers who demand performance so they can feel secure and really enjoy the ride down after the climb up.

Skier Type
Backcountry skiers who want to keep the weight to a minimum for the maximum ease when travelling longer distances, but who do not want to sacrifice performance. The 85 has plenty of grip and energy when skiing firmer snow. It’ll suit a wide variety of skiers from novices all the way to experienced skiers tackling everything on the mountain.


Overview

Shape
A directional shape with tip rocker means predictable handling and more of the ski’s edge in contact with the snow, resulting in better grip and stability. 85mm in the waist is narrow enough to remain nimble and quick edge-to-edge but there’s enough wide there if you do find some softer snow and want some width underfoot. The 17m radius (172cm) is long enough to boost the stability, helping the ski track cleanly whatever the snow condition. The HRZN Tech tip further improves the overall handling with a horizontal rocker that increases surface area.

Rocker
All Mountain Rocker use a 15/85/0 split of rocker/camber/rocker across the tip, main body and tail of the ski. This mix ensures excellent grip and response on firmer snow and when traversing, with some rocker at the front for better planning in soft conditions and easy handling when steering the skis.

Core
The Ultra Light Woodcore is made from poplar and caruba to ensure the weight is kept right down.

Construction
Cap Sidewall uses sidewall from the base to the top sheet for controlled power transmission and great edge hold. The rounded shape adds durability as it picks up less dings and knocks.


Key Features

HRZN Tech Tip
HRZN Tech blends an ABS sidewall construction with an across-the-ski (horizontal) rocker. This adds 10% more surface area in the tip and tail without increasing swing weight. The result is better tracking through chop and crud and less tip deflection – meaning greater stability, floatation and agility.

Carbon Backbone
An ultra-light insert that runs the length of the ski like a stabilising backbone. This provides exceptional agility and edge hold without extra weight.


EB tester’s comments: Florrie (Covent Garden) A tour ski that surprised me handling a far wider range of terrain then I thought it would. Best thing is the balance of climbing efficiency to downhill performance!
