Features of the product

Black base making it easier to see. Coround tosheet 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 on 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 jittery your skiing becomes. The lower the arch, the more tolerant and manoeuvrable 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 towards the centre of the ski. The surface of the ski in contact with the snow is smaller: you benefit from more manoeuvrability 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 in changing snow conditions. The wider the heel, the more involved the ski in turns. The slimmer the heel, the easier it slides.
137/91/118 radius = 18.5 m in 184 cm.

    Aún con mala nieve experiencia buenísima

    Los Samurai 500 son unos esquís de freeride muy buenos, me han ido muy finos incluso con mala nieve. Son muy firmes con velocidad y agarran perfectamente. Además son ligeros aunque tengan un tamaño grande. Brutales!
