Freeride Skis Samurai 500 designed for expert freeriders, 50% on-slope and 50% off-slope.
With the Samurai 500, you get effects and sensations that are very close to a pure alpine ski while also receiving good lift in powder.
At 91 mm wide and with a small rocker, the Samurai 500 offers good lift.
50% slope, 50% off-slope.
Easy to handle
The short radius and powder rocker make them manageable.
Wood construction and straight sidewalls give stability and comfort in all snow.
As the rocker is relatively short, this ski fares very well on hard snow.
Woodcore Tec is constructed with a wooden core and vertical edges. The advantage of this construction? It offers the ski great versatility and good comfort, whatever the snow type.
Tyrolia-branded bindings, PR11 MBS, Din 3 to 11.
Black base, making it easier to see.
Coround topsheet, which is very resistant to scratching.
Waxed and sharpened skis, ready to use. Edges sharpened at 89°.
What is an arch?
When placing a ski on the ground, the ski points of contact to the ground are found near the tip and heel, whereas the middle of the ski (under the attachments) is slightly raised (this is the arch). The longer and higher the arch, the snappier and more jittery your skiing becomes. The lower the arch, the more tolerant and maneuverable the ski becomes.
What is a rocker?
On a rocker ski, the tip, and sometimes the heel, comes off the ground much sooner than with a cambered ski. This moves the points of contact toward the center of the ski. The surface of the ski in contact with the snow is smaller: you benefit from more maneuverability and lift in soft snow. When taking corners, the edge length provides grip on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the more manageable the ski.
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 is in changing snow conditions. The wider the heel, the more involved the ski is in turns. The slimmer the heel, the easier it slides.
137/91/118 radius = 61' in 6'.
