A tour ski that still feels solid. It’s well balanced and nimble for tight situations, giving the confidence to go and explore whether it’s a short or a multi-day tour.

An 85mm waist, HRZN tip and UltraLight Wood core ensure efficient gliding and speed when going uphill whilst improving overall manoeuvrability. A Carbon Backbone refines the ride going back down by beefing up the levels of grip and power to cope with variable conditions so you stay in control. This is well suited to hut-to-hut tours or shorter ones, focusing on the climb.

The 85 is quick and nimble for skiing in tight spaces. The flex feels nice and solid for the weight of the ski, giving it excellent edge hold and making it a good choice for skiers who demand performance so they can feel secure and really enjoy the ride down after the climb up. 

Shape: A directional shape with tip rocker means predictable handling and more of the ski’s edge in contact with the snow, resulting in better grip and stability. 85mm in the waist is narrow enough to remain nimble and quick edge-to-edge but there’s enough wide there if you do find some softer snow and want some width underfoot. The 17m radius (172cm) is long enough to boost the stability, helping the ski track cleanly whatever the snow condition. The HRZN Tech tip further improves the overall handling with a horizontal rocker that increases surface area.

Rocker: All Mountain Rocker use a 15/85/0 split of rocker/camber/rocker across the tip, main body and tail of the ski. This mix ensures excellent grip and response on firmer snow and when traversing, with some rocker at the front for better planning in soft conditions and easy handling when steering the skis.

Core: The Ultra Light Woodcore is made from poplar and caruba to ensure the weight is kept right down.

Construction: Cap Sidewall uses sidewall from the base to the top sheet for controlled power transmission and great edge hold. The rounded shape adds durability as it picks up less dings and knocks.

HRZN Tech Tip: HRZN Tech blends an ABS sidewall construction with an across-the-ski (horizontal) rocker. This adds 10% more surface area in the tip and tail without increasing swing weight. The result is better tracking through chop and crud and less tip deflection – meaning greater stability, floatation and agility.

Carbon Backbone: An ultra-light insert that runs the length of the ski like a stabilising backbone. This provides exceptional agility and edge hold without extra weight.
