Nylon topsheet - has excellent wear and chip resistance Carbon Box - provides superior edge grip and responsiveness Ballistic Glass - 65% tougher than Kevlar for consistent, long-lasting flex Core with Ironwalls Sugar maple - screw retention and power Poplar - eliminates unnecessary weight Ironwood sidewalls - vertical, rock hard, and naturally waterproof Micro-mechanical Damper - precisely engineered for stability Ballistic Glass - symmetric ply Carbon Box - symmetric ply Edged base - Isospeed 7500 with graphite for higher speeds
Sandwich Tech's Micro-mechanical Damper reduces specific modes of ski vibration that affect edge hold without losing the higher frequency, lively feedback.
Combines both micro-mechanical and constrained layer damping mechanisms
Directional loss factors for a damping effect that is focused on specificvibration modes
Isolated modes of vibration prevents overdamping higher frequencies that provide lively feedback
Embedded into the ski for durability and consistency
A hard-charging, frontside carver, the Root 78 has east coast roots with its full camber and versatile sidecut. The torsionally rigid Carbon Box construction rewards fast, skilled carvers with great edge hold and stability. Able to store more energy than carbon fiber or Kevlar, our Ballistic Glass provides a consistent flex and rebound. The Root 78 is ideal for a skier who wants on-piste versatility, but demands precise carving to appease their inner-racer.
