Using less material in the sidewalls has achieved optimum weight reduction. These sidewalls are laid up in deeperhorizontal layers, making them 1.5 times stronger and more impact-resistant than conventional sidewalls.
The evenly increasing radius up to the ski tip allows a really smooth and steady ex when impacted from the front.On crusty or corn snow alike the SCOOP ROCKER acts as a bumper, delivering a smooth ride every time.
The comparatively short radius of 20 metres at the binding provides perfect edge grip on steep, icy terrain. This wasspecially designed for extra-wide skis. The short radius at the point where the ski is at its stiffest offers ski runnersthe security they need on ice.
Despite the wide geometry of the Cho Oyu, the ski weighs only 1250g (174mm) and is thus perfect for deep snow as well as for expeditions and high-altitude tours. The Flex-Tip design in a new, slim shovel geometry and micro sidewall in the binding area are a perfect way to ensure load capacity on difficult terrain and a direct transfer of power.
