Backup is the most effective and technical touring ski in our range. The two metal layers give it incomparable power and shock absorption for this weight range, and with its waist of 82 mm, you will climb the icy and rugged slopes with confidence. The light All-Terrain Rocker helps to make the first trace uphill and to be comfortable on the sastrugi and in other difficult conditions that we find in backcountry.
Construction: Metal TNC, Cap, Paulownia
This type of rocker has been developed for the snow rather harsh: with a slightly elevated and little longer tip, the entries of cornering will be facilitated, the transitions without surprise. The camber on the rest of the ski gives more precision and grip power than any other type of rocker in the range.
Larger ski front, thinner tail and a progressive radius is a combination of two different radii whose purpose is to increase the versatility of the wider skis under the foot. In general, the skis have rather a single radius. This works very well on skis rather thin, but can make driving wider skis underfoot more difficult, especially in transformed snow. The use of progressive radius on wider skis improves the triggering of the turns and the performance on hard snow.
Topsheets snow unloaders, specific of the BackLa models accumulated snow on a skiing can increase during a climb. Our SnoPhobic top system prevents the snow from accumulating on your skis and weighing you down. In fact, we have developed the tops specifically if the Back models using the same hydrophobic material on the soles but with lower thickness. You can even add wax on the topsheet to increase this effect of load shedding.
TIP AND TAIL HOLES
All the Adventure skis are provided with a hole at both ends. The holes are covered, and can be opened simply with a flat-head screw, for use in ski touring. They are primarily designed for the installation of skins, but can also be used in the manufacture of a fortune rescue sledge in backcountry, and also for marking support points in the snow.
