The rocker profile and tip shape are combined into one progressively changing elliptical arc, which allows the tips to plane faster in powder, deflect less in variable snow, and helps the effective edge running within the rocker length to engage in a more natural, effortless way.
RES is a large, convex elliptical arc that runs from boot center to tip taper, combined with a long, traditional radius in the tail. The goal is simple: create the best soft snow sidecut and shape available.
For 2017, we’ve pushed the design forward and incorporated an asymmetrical sidecut design with the sole focus of making the best powder ski we’ve ever made even better. The inside edges share the same RES foundation that has made the Cease & Desist a powslayer for the past several years. The magic happens on the outside edge, where a decreased effective edge frees the outside of the ski to smear and pivot with ease, while the new tip & tail taper design decreases weight and ensures the tips remain catch-free as you flow in and out of powder turns. Combined with a proper rocker profile, tour layup, and our 100% bamboo core, for those who have the snow to ski it, the rich just got richer.
