What is mountain touring?

Mountain touring is our definition of alpine touring in the mountains. Go for it, create your climbing route far away from the ski resorts. Go back down to where the snow looks better and the slope is less exposed to avalanche risks. For authentic alpine touring. Given the natural aspects of the mountainous surroundings, you must have good technique, prepare your outings, and have a good understanding of your avalanche safety equipment. Don't head out alone.

Ski skins

The skins are pre-cut to fit the sidecuts of the skis. They are made of 70% mohair and 30% synthetic materials – the ideal compromise in terms of gliding performance (when climbing in order to save energy) and grip (when climbing to avoid backsliding). The skins are fitted with a metal clip on the front to fit most ski tips and an adjustable camlock on the back to fasten the skin to the tail of the ski. It is important to dry your skins thoroughly in the open air

Structure

The MT90 is constructed with a Karuba wood core and carbon along its entire length. What's the advantage of this construction? It offers responsiveness and is lightweight.

Durability

Semi-cap construction to avoid chipping your skis when they get crossed. Predominantly black bases for easy repairs.

Preparation

Ready-to-use waxed and sharpened skis. Edges sharpened to 89°

What is a camber?

When placing a ski on the ground, its points of contact are found near the nose and tail, whereas the middle of the ski (under the bindings) is slightly raised (this is the camber). The longer and higher the camber, the greater the edge grip and the more responsive the ski. The lower the camber, the more forgiving the ski and the better the handling.

What is a rocker?

On a "rocker" ski, the nose, and sometimes the tail, 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 shortened: They have better handling and more buoyancy on soft snow. When leaning into turns, the edge length offers more edge grip on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the better the handling of the ski.

Autoride rocker

Light rocker at the nose and tail, camber under the foot. This shape provides maneuverability and tolerance upon changing snow conditions. It has the maneuverability of a shorter ski when side-slipping and the stability of a longer ski as soon as you use the ski edges.

What are ski sidecuts?

The sidecut is determined by 3 measurements: the width of the tip (front of the ski), the waist (middle of ski), and the tail (back of ski). The wider the tip, the easier the turn entry. The narrower the waist, the stronger the grip in hard snow. The wider the waist, the more comfortable and stable in different snow conditions. The wider the tail, the more stable the ski is in turns. The narrower the tail, the better the glide.

How to choose your ski size

The shorter the skis, the more maneuverable they are. This is why it's better for beginners to choose shorter skis. Generally, in ski touring, we recommend choosing skis: between -5cm to -10cm (2" to 4") shorter than your height. You can also choose a different length according to the ski touring location: In the resort, on marked routes:from -5cm to -15cm (2" to 6") in relation to the height of the skier. In the mountains from 0 to -10cm (0" to 4"), in relation to the height of the skier.

Origin

Imported

Product testing

The MT90 skis were tested and approved by our design team during the winter of 2019-2020.
