We are now on the third iteration of our Carbonlite construction as we constantly develop and improve our materials, prototyping, testing and rolling out new Flax angles and weave. We blend Flax and Carbon fibre to replace the fibre-glass layers used in our Traditional construction resulting in the Carbonlite series being 25% lighter by comparison. Carbonlite is less susceptible to degradation. The structure of the fibres within the weave of the Flax and Carbon will not break with flexing and so remain structurally sound. The skier benefits from being more agile, more reactive and able to ski longer as the skis are lighter on the legs.

Power and security with a smooth ride.
Built to be light on the way up and strong on the way down, the new R 98 is our all-access free-touring model with freeride at its core.
The R 98 takes a lot of its design features from its bigger brother including minimal camber and tip rocker for ease of turning, a medium flex pattern and a longer turn radius for stability in the changeable backcountry snow conditions.
The revised, lighter weight aluminium tail allows the ski to be cut deep into the snowpack to create a solid anchor point as well being a secure skin attachment.

|Dims 128 - 98 - 109|
The introduction of the Carbonlite construction to the Director 107only accentuates its characterful and versatile nature.
The weight-saving is largely noticeable under foot which thentranslates to quick turns through the trees, easier boot packs toremote sidecountry, and a more balanced and even feel in the air.
|Length 181cm, 191cm|
|Radius 22m, 25m|
|Effective Edge 1460mm, 1580mm|
|Dims 134 - 107 - 124 (181cm)|
From Piste to Powder, effortlessly lightweight.
Our unique Carbon layup brings added weight-saving and durability to the Preacher 112 and combines it with a shape that continues to give large amounts of float in the fresh snow.
The positive camber and increased torsional stiffness from the Carbonlite construction brings an increase in edge hold on hard packed snow, decreasing fatigue and allowing you to ski for longer and harder.
|Length 179cm, 189cm|
|Radius 16.5m, 19m|
|Effective Edge 1580mm, 1660mm|
|Dims 155 - 112 - 133|
Big mountain with maximum confidence.
The Carbonlite edition of the Ragnarok 118 not only brings increased torsional stiffness for security on the steeps but combines it with the Carbonlite weight saving to help you access them.
Our Carbon and Flax blend gives a light and reactive ride in all terrain allowing you to ride any face or feature with maximum confidence.
The Ragnarok 118 Carbonlite will make the big mountain experience even more accessible.
