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.
Each year, the touring ski market serves up options that sacrifice performance and durability for weight savings. For skiers who demand a quality ride on both the up and the down, and need skis that will take all the abuse the backcountry can dish out, we offer the all new Steeple Series. The Steeple 98 maintains the surfy, catch-free ride for those looking for greater flotation on the down. Thanks to our improved Reverse Elliptical Sidecut, it maintains better edge hold on hard snow traverses and when (gasp!) you have to ski something that’s not soft.
