The RED is as versatile as a pure powder ski gets. 22mR sidecut over a 125mm waist that can be carved easily over hard suface searching for more of the good stuff. 196cm length gives a 148mm max width. The cores are as light as we can make a pair of full wood cores, but strengthened with the same amount of fiberglass that we use in some our most freeride oriented skis. This combination of materials make a light ski that is still very strong and flexible. They absorb impacts better and behave like much heavier constructions.
