The SVELTE is just that: light, limber, snappy and quick on the skin track, tough on the crud while effortlessly floating through the pow. The SVELTE uses the Carbon Nanotube Technology from the award winning Vapor Nano in a slightly thinner waist and overall geometry to make this a compelling all-around ski mountaineering tool for every backcountry pursuit. This mid-fat made in the usa ski will bust through crud, lay down arcs on the hardpack and float through waist deep powder. This ski is 40% lighter than other skis of this size and it lasts seasons longer than traditional wood core skis. The prepreg resin matrix reinforced with Carbon Nanotubes delivers performance that leaves your ski partners gasping for air while you skin up for another lap.
