First designed as an all mountain daily driver the 9D8 has found its place as a backcountry touring ski. With our new Ultra light core option the 9D8 makes for a great touring ski. Tabke proved this to us with several of his recent mountaineering adventures being completed on a pair of custom 9D8's made with an our UL core. When reporting back to us on his experiences Tabke suggested that we add this ski to the touring series in its Ultra Light form. So here is the standard edition of the Ultra Light 9D8 ready to go on a venture to the top of a mountain near you.
