2016 Sneak Peek : New Ski Arrivals
2016 SNEAK PEEK : NEW SKI ARRIVALS
By Chris Cahill, Seattle, WA: Now that it’s August, we at evo want to get our hands on some 2016 skis, and we’re assuming you’re in the same boat. You’ve cranked the AC, put on your ski gear, and watched your favorite ski flicks for a few weeks now, but you need more. No middle of August ski-gear-mirror-selfie will make winter arrive faster, but we have the new skis to keep you occupied until the season starts. Here are a few that we are pumped on that are already in stock, or on their way.
Get a look at all of our 2016 skis arriving daily, here.
K2 Pinnacle 118The latest vision of big mountain legend, Seth Morrison, the K2 Pinnacle 118 Skis are updated with K2‘s Konic Technology which improves power and precision over the edges while reducing swing and overall weight from the center and extremities.
Wide enough to handle deep snow tours in winter, but light enough for longer hut trips or big volcano objectives, the ultralight MTN Explore 95 comes through with real performance at speed and on harder snow due to full vertical sidewalls in the carve zone and the addition of CFX Superfiber – a woven strip of carbon and flax over the Karuba wood core – that gives the ski both power and dampness.
The newborn phenom from Line Skis, the Tigersnake is bred to devour the entire mountain in one bite. Jam packed with some of the most innovative technology in the game, these slick sliding sticks boast subtle Early Rise™ rocker to enhance swing weight and float, Early Taper™ to reduce tail drag/hooking, and a Carbon Ollieband™ to maximize pop and overall responsiveness.
For both hard pack cruising and soft snow crushing, the Line Skis Pandora 95 Skis fit the bill perfectly. With 3 mm of camber underfoot and a nimble Alpenlite™ core, these skis are the perfect compromise between high-speed stability and maneuverability across a wide variety of terrain.
Whether you desire to decimate groomers, crush the crud, or pillage pristine side piste, this ski is your gateway and next step to progress your abilities. For all-mountain progression, look to the Atomic Affinity Sky Skis + XT 10 Ti Bindings.
