All-Mountain Skis Xlander 500 designed for for the beginner to intermediate skier: 60% slope-carving, 40% all snow slopes.
The Xlander 500 is maneuverable and very light on the feet. It does not require much energy to fully enjoy and stay comfortable on the slopes, even in changing snow conditions.
Easy to handle
The rocker heel reduces the length of the blade, thereby easing lift-off.
The size (75mm) brings stability in changing snow conditions.
Tolerant to blade errors, but also confident on hard snow.
The size (75mm) of autoride rocker allows for some skiing in powdery conditions.
Light Woodcore Tec : construction cap on a light wood core. Allows for a very light ski underfoot, making the ski even more maneuverable. The ski acts as a cushion, bringing lots of comfort, thanks to the wood which has a large absorption capacity for relief from vibrations.
Look bindings, Xpress 10 model. Adjustable DIN 4 to 10. Adjustable from 261 mm to 381 mm.
Metal tip end and reinforced topsheet.
Waxed and sharpened skis, ready to use. Blade sharpened to 89°.
What is a camber?
When you set the ski on the ground, the points of contact between the ski and the ground are situated near to the tip and the heel, while the ski’s center (under the bindings) is slightly raised (this is the camber). The longer and higher the camber, the more grip and tension there is in the ski. The lower the camber, the more relaxed and maneuverable the ski.
What is a rocker?
On a “rocker” ski, the tip, and sometimes the heel, raise from the ground much faster than in a cambered ski. The effect of this is to move the points of contact towards the center of the ski. The ski surface area in contact with the snow is therefore reduced: you benefit from greater maneuverability and lift in smooth snow. On increasing the angle, you will come onto the length of the edge for more grip on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the more maneuverable your ski.
Light rocker at the tip and heel, camber under the foot. This shape provides maneuverability and tolerance upon changing snow conditions. Provides maneuverability in the instance of a shorter ski when skidding and stability with a longer ski when using the edge.
What are ski sidecuts?
The sidecuts have 3 sides, the width of the tip (front of ski), the skate (middle of ski) and the heel (back of ski).
The wider the tip, the easier it is to enter turns.
The slimmer the skate, the more tenacious the ski on hard snow.
The wider the skate, the more comfortable and stable the ski in changing snow conditions.
The wider the heel, the more involved the ski in turns.
The slimmer the heel, the easier it slides.
What is a ski radius?
Do you like tackling big turns:
Big turns: radius > 18 m
Opt for skis with a large radius. Fewer vibrations and more comfortable management.
You will love everything: big turns, small turns:
Medium turns: universal radius of between 14 and 18 m
Opt for medium radius.
Look for multi-radius skis You prefer small turns:
Small turns: radius < 14 m
Skis with a small radius respond more quickly and turn better.
