Rave Adult Pure Combo Water Skis offer the stability and comfort you need while speeding over the water! Rave's Pure Combo water skis feature a square nose with narrow fin. The double density adjustable slide binding is soft on the inside for comfort, but stiffer on the outside for ankle support. Includes a slalom toe for riders who want to advance their skills. Soft step inserts cushion the riders foot. Made in the USA. 170 cm. For riders over 125 lbs.
The Candide 1. 0 Ski from Faction is redesigned this year to be livelier, snappier, and burlier than ever. Carbon fiber reinforcements through the skis add power and responsiveness to your turns. To make these bad boys capable of standing up to the abuse of park and urban riding, Faction used 2. 5mm thick steel edges, so they won't blow out on you. A symmetrical sidecut and camber underfoot lets you pop, spin, and land however you choose. At 90mm underfoot, these are perfect for the pipe and park, but if the snow is falling and your friends are spinning laps through waist-deep fluff, these will give you enough float to still show them what's up.
Built for long tours with big vert, the Atomic Backland Aspect Ski is for the backcountry enthusiast seeking excellent uphill performance and power on the downhill. Weighing just under six pounds per pair in the 170cm length, the Aspect keeps your legs fresh for the downhill and ready for another couple of laps on a powder day. The Aspect can accredit its weight savings mainly to the Ultralite Woodcore, a combination of poplar and caruba woods that provide a light yet stable platform for the descent. All the skis within the Backland series were designed to perform in any condition, and that can be seen in the incredibly versatile Aspect. Utilizing both camber underfoot and rocker in the tip, it provides edge hold on icy and hardpack conditions and will still float in the powder. In order to increase the agility and stability of the ski, Atomic laid a carbon backbone throughout the length of the ski, so you can open it up with confidence in those wide open bowls and aprons. The Step Down Sidewall construction has full sidewall underfoot for stability at speed, and cap at the tip and tail to keep the weight down. This is going to be the ski of choice for the skier who spends the majority of his or her time in the backcountry covering lots of country and logging in vert throughout the season despite the conditions.
Groomed trails and spandex are not your style; neither are ultralight, ultra-skinny, ultra-fragile nordic skis. You're a backcountry explorer, maybe a little bit crazy, but ready for adventure, and the Alpina Discovery 110 Touring Ski is what's going to take you there. With a 66mm waist and a generous sidecut, the 110 is Alpina's widest backcountry nordic ski, and it is about as stable and powerful as a ski that's built for pure downhill. But that's not to say it won't tackle uphills with aplomb, as it has a Sollte SS810 waxless base for easy and free gliding on flats or downhills and balanced control and forward-moving efficiency going up. Alpina gave the Discovery steel edges for stable grip on hard snow, ice, and in variable or unpredictable conditions. A polyurethane core provides smooth flex while maintaining the rigidity and power that your backcountry nordic excursions demand. A polyamide topsheet adds a layer of tough durability.
When tonight's storm has you dreaming about tomorrow's faceshots, you better make sure you have the Blizzard Cochise Ski packed and ready to go. With a 108mm waist and a rockered tip and tail, the Cochise lets you float over pow and crud with vigor and initiate turns like a champ. When the storm lets up and your dreams of bottomless pow don't pan out, the Cochise still has you covered, as slight camber underfoot lets you make solid, powerful turns on hardpack. The versatile waist combines with innovative Flipcore design in which Blizzard inserted the ski's core into the mold upside-down, giving it a natural tip and tail rocker rather than pressing it unnaturally into shape like most of the skis on the market. What does this mean for you? It means snappy, intuitive edge control on groomers and fluid flex and turn initiation anywhere. It also means excellent stability and even pressure distribution. The Cochise's multi-wood core provides smooth flex for all kinds of playful feel out of this kickass ski.
Counting sheep is boring, so you count spins, kinks, and corks to help you fall asleep, and it's no coincidence that you spend most nights cuddling the Icelantic Da'Nollie Ski. It's been redesigned for 14/15, with a wider platform (95mm underfoot) to ease powder landings and increase stomping surface area, along with a rockered tip and tail that make it easy to butter, ride switch, and venture out of the park and into the freshies. Like all Icelantics, the Da'Nollie's available in fairly short lengths and tight turn radii, making the ski nimbler and reducing swing weight without compromising stability and performance at speed. Icelantic's Nollie Flex wood core provides a strong, flexible, and poppy platform for buttering, ollieing, and popping off every little feature you find, while fiberglass laminates offer enough stiffness to rally comfortably at speed without weighing you down when you decide to go airborne. The Da'Nollie wouldn't be an Icelantic board if it didn't have the company's signature Travis Parr graphics and rugged crystal-clear Carbonium topsheets, which are complemented by 2. 2mm steel edges and a lightning-quick Durasurf 4001 sintered base. The only drawback? You won't be able to blame your skis anymore when you bail.
We all love our fatty pow skis on the deep days, but they don't make a whole lot of sense as an everyday ski. So, whether you're looking to give your quiver a little more rounding or looking for a do-it-all workhorse, the K2 Shreditor 102 Ski will give you that free-ride feel you love so much in a narrow and nimble hard-snow-oriented design. All-terrain rocker gives your tip and tail a lift over new snow, chopped crud, and wind-buff while the camber underfoot provides stable edge-to-edge transfer on the hardpack and groomed runs. The aspen and paulownia wood core has the lively flex patterns you'd expect from a wood core, but with K2's Triaxial braid (weaved strands of fiberglass around the core), the ski has the torsional strength for stability at high speeds on hard snow. The Twintech sidewall wraps the topsheet partially around the sidewall, reducing wear along the edge and preventing your topsheet from chipping off so your sticks look mint all season long. The tapered tip and tail increases control when you're coming out of a turn and lets you scrub speed quickly when that tree sneaks up on you. K2 threw in its skin grommet attachment, so if you decide to do some backcountry stuff, you can get a seamless skin-to-ski attachment.
A pow-crushing, pillow-stomping, big-mountain gun, Armada's Magic J Ski is Tanner Hall's powder ski of choice for obvious reasons. By beefing up the dimensions of the JJ and moving the contact point forward, you get the same ease of turning and high-speed stability of the JJ, but in a wider platform that is able to handle the ultra-deep days and work their way down pillow lines with ease. Equipped with an EST Freeride Rocker profile (rockered tip and tail with regular camber underfoot), these bad boys allow for smooth, fast, sweeping turns down big lines or long groomer runs. Armada is all about durability and ensuring the life of its skis, so it gave the Js a Hybrid Ultralight wood core and AR50 sandwich sidewall construction for a high strength-to-weight ratio that you can count on when you're charging down floaty pillow lines, variable snow, or through technical early-season conditions. These all-mountain destroyers also have Laminate Matrix technology (directional layering of fiberglass) that provides a smooth, even flex pattern and torsional rigidity for stellar performance in a variety of snow conditions and terrain. In addition, you'll be grateful for the lightweight, strong 1. 7mm edges that have been heat treated for durability and 50/50 bases that offer a just-right blend of speed and durability.
The Alpina Discovery 90 Touring Ski is a versatile cross country ski ready for your off-trail explorations. As the middle-width ski in Alpina's Discovery backcountry Nordic lineup, the 90 sports a 70mm waist. That is plenty of width to get yourself off the beaten path but not so much that it resembles a clunky alpine ski more suited for the chairlifts than the trails. Steel edges provide stable grip on hard snow, ice, and in variable or unpredictable conditions. Alpina gave the Discovery a Sollte SS810 waxless base for easy and free gliding on flats or downhills while maintaining balanced control and forward-moving efficiency on the uphills. A poplar wood core provides fluid and easy flex, which means the ski will handle for you rather than you having to muscle the ski to do your bidding. A polyamide topsheet adds a layer of tough durability for many years of use.
It's probably not a bad thing when a ski is named after, and largely influenced by, the skiing of one of the all-time great skiers--and that's certainly the case with the K2 Coomback 104 Ski. In the world of backcountry skiing, few names evoke as much praise as that of Doug Coombs, so it should come as no surprise that this signature ski is perfectly fit for his style of skiing: big, aggressive lines, often deep in the backcountry. The 104mm waist width will let you float serenely down big powder lines, and the paulownia and maple woods core keeps things light and poppy so you can have fun on the way down as well. In order to give plenty of stability for a lightweight ski, K2 used a Torsion Box system in conjunction with its Hybritech sidewall, so you don't have to worry about blowing out an edge when you're four days into your yurt trip. In order to facilitate use as an anchor or an emergency sled, K2 gave this ski a flat tail that can easily be plunged into the snow as a sort of "extra-picket."
The Blizzard Scout Ski may be a lightweight on the scale, but be assured it's a heavyweight performer. Its strong, lively wood Flipcore gives it natural rocker in tip and tail, and a generous 27-meter sidecut radius means stability at scorching speeds. The 108-millimeter waist is an ample platform in pow but still quick edge-to-edge. Sidewall sandwich construction also brings power and precision to the edges. This ski has classic camber for strong rebound and edge hold. For backcountry enthusiasts, the Scout is Blizzard's burliest board.
Get your caravan packed. With the Icelantic Gypsy Ski, you have your weapon of choice when a two-foot dump arrives. This fatty's generous dimensions, soft flex, and reverse camber are specifically designed for playful surfing in the deep, while the wide-radius sidecut allows gives you the power to point it down an open bowl. A nearly symmetrical shape lets you get slopestyle on this ski and launch or land switch when you get the urge. The clingy edge engages fully when the snow gets skied up and firm, and sidewall construction puts power in that arc. Your buddies might call you a thieving gypsy after plundering more than your share of pow, but that's OK. Remember: no friends on a powder day.

Maybe the Blizzard Latigo Ski isn't as fat as most of its brothers in Blizzard's Freemountain Ti line, but it makes up for its relatively narrow width by being super quick through bumps and trees, powerfully edgy on groomers, and plenty fast enough to give strong intermediate skiers a perma-grin all over the mountain. It all starts with Blizzard's Flipcore, which, unlike traditional cores that are pressed in a cambered mold, presses the core into a mildly rockered shape from the very start, so the rocker profile exactly matches the shape of the ski. This gives the Latigo a snappy, lively feel, which is boosted by two layers of Titanal that stiffen things up and give the ski plenty of power and edge grip. Traditional camber underfoot lets you carve the Latigo like you're riding rails, while mild rocker in the tip and tail make it easier to initiate turns and ride over rough, choppy snow on the lightning-quick sintered graphite base. It's also built with a classic sandwich construction, which helps direct power to the edges and takes a beating without slowing down.
Maybe the mountain's been giving you a bit of lip, but you can put it in its place with a quick talking-to from the Armada Alpha X Ski. This bad Larry doesn't step down from steeps, groomers, chunder, or ice, with a mid-fat waist and Hybrid Triple Zone wood core that's wrapped with fiberglass to conquer all sorts of terrain at high speeds. The tail's been decked out with a carbon fiber and Kevlar stringer for powerful turn finishing and stability at speed--it'll bump you forward in no time if you get dumped into the backseat--and Armada's five-dimension sidecut moves the widest points of the ski toward the middle for quicker turning and easier smearing, surfing, and speed-dumping in soft snow. You'd expect a modern all-mountain ski like the Alpha to come with rocker in the tip and tail for flotation and smooth riding, and, well, you'd be right. Armada built it with EST Park Rocker, which combines these rockered zones with traditional camber underfoot, creating a ski that can rip when you want it to but stay nimble and floaty when the snow gets soft. The AR50 sidewall construction features a cap in the tip and tail and sidewalls underfoot, so you have power where you need it and light swing weight when you want to get jibby. Armada also hooked the Alpha up with its fastest Comp Series base and most rugged 2. 5mm Impact edges, so the only thing limiting your speed will be all those jabronis standing in the trail, and that stand of trees that's coming up awfully quickly. Better hit the brakes.
When the planets align for your long-awaited ski-cation to Portillo and the peaks are emerging from a month-long snow storm, you'll be happy you brought along the K2 Annex 108 Ski. Born from the SideStash of yore, the Annex 108 is a touring ski that loves the backcountry, untouched bowls, and couloirs of all shapes and sizes. K2 realized people loved the SideStash, for good reason, but everything must join the present at some point. So along comes the Annex 108. K2 took the essentials of the Sidestash, like the wood core, metal laminate, and Hybritech sidewall, and tweaked the rocker profile. Now, with the all-terrain rocker, you can go straight from enjoying uncut fields of bliss to plowing through chunder. The all-terrain rocker still has positive camber underfoot, but the tip has a longer and lower rise and the ski has a kicktail for easier handling over all terrain. The wood blend core is sandwiched between metal laminate consisting of Titanal and fiberglass. This damps vibrations, reduces chatter, and gives you precision when turning. The HybriTech sidewall gives you the best of both worlds; the lightweight responsiveness of cap construction, with the durability and power of a true sidewall.For those days when you just can't stomach the thought of waiting in lift lines, strap K2's custom skins to the tip and tail skin-attachment grommets and experience blissful skinning as you earn your turns.
If you're a hard-charger who doesn't necessarily see the need to be hauling around a snowboard-sized plank on each foot, then the K2 Annex 98 Ski is for you. This ski fits the rider who is fall-line focused, whether that be inbounds or far from civilization. The all-terrain rocker is ideal for a majority of conditions, from powder dumps to hardpack, and everything in between. The 98mm waist is plenty fat enough to offer flotation, but won't have you feeling like you're dragging tree trunks up the skin-track. A bit of camber underfoot helps you to keep your grip on any part of the mountain, even when you're staring down a questionable chute, one hand pressed against the 55-degree slope next to you. If getting away from it all is your goal, tip and tail skin-attachment grommets make for an easy pairing with K2's custom skins.
You're the dude who always gets the shot, but it's time to jump out from behind the camera and star in your own personal ski-porn flick with the K2 Shreditor 92 on your feet. Even if you prefer to be credited as "Anonymous Shredmaster", the crowd will be digging your steeze when you take the light, lively fiberglass-laminated fir-and-aspen core for a spin through the trees and use the rockered tips and low underfoot camber to rally through the park like a boss. Both the tip and tail of the Shreditor are blunt and tapered for easy release and a loose, surfy feel, so you can slip, slide, and slash your way down the hill in soft snow and get more buttery than a fresh croissant when you're ripping off POV shots in the park. The Shreditor's core is wrapped with K2's trademark braided triaxial fiberglass laminate for plenty of lightweight pop, and the sidecut and rocker profiles match to ensure smooth turn initiation in the tip, plenty of edge hold underfoot, and easy tail release when you're finishing up a turn. It also rocks TwinTech construction, which rolls the top of the ski into the sidewall for increased durability, and Absorb sidewalls that use urethane underfoot for maximum dampness and ABS in the tip and tail for power and rock-solid edge hold. In addition to saving materials, the Swap Bases ensure that each ski has a distinct look, and the tip and tail skin attachments let you slap on some K2 skins and hit the backcountry when you need to collect some snorkel-worthy powder shots.
When the deck's stacked against you and all the jokers are putting their money on the other guy, break out the Nordica Ace Ski, stomp that switch double cork, and ski away with fat stacks of top-of-the-podium cash. The Ace is designed specifically to dominate the park thanks to Energy 2 Titanium construction, which boasts a light and poppy ash and poplar core sandwiched between two sheets of titanal that gives you the boost you need to go all in when you're getting upside-down. Coupled with a Park CamRock profile that bites into hardpack to let you effortlessly carve into icy takeoffs and pipe walls, the Ace lets you spin, butter, and ollie as easily as you can say "hit me." It's also super-fast, thanks to a sintered graphite gallium UHMW base that keeps your airs big and prevents you from shorting landings. The Ace is durable, with burly steel edges, ABS sidewalls, and a light-but-strong cap construction that will help you spin like a roulette wheel and take the suckers for all they're worth. Don't gamble on park performance--go all in with the Ace.
Feeling like a little jibby badassery? Draw some sweet fake tats on your neck, stuff some M80s into your pockets, and take the Atomic Punx Ski out for some park, pipe, and urban shenanigans. The Punx is Atomic's flagship freestyle plank, ridden by fellows like Gus Kenworthy, so you know the early rise of the catch-free and butter-friendly Park Rocker is legit, while the bite of the cambered section lets you rally into icy takeoffs with serious confidence. With a smaller turning radius in the tips and tails (Atomic calls it Stomp Sidecut), you won't hook up and wash out on landings, and the Step Down 2. 0 one-piece sidewall and Resist 2. 2mm edges won't blow out on rails or serious heavy-head stomps. Atomic built the Punx with a super-poppy wood core to give you the boost you need to get rowdy, and made the ski perfectly symmetrical, too, so you'll be able to ride switch as smoothly as you ride facing forwards.
