Features of the product

Construction
Woodcore Tec is a construction with a wooden core and vertical edges. The advantage of this construction? It offers great versatility when skiing and superior comfort in all types of snow.
Bindings
Tyrolia bindings, Adrenalin 13, Din 3 to 13. In 184 cm, adjustment from 299 mm to 362 mm. In 177 cm, adjustment from 270 mm to 330 mm.
Preparation
Waxed and sharpened skis, ready to use. Edges sharpened at 89°.
What is an arch?
When placing a ski on the ground, its points of contact are found near the tip and heel, 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 traction and more responsive the ski. The lower the camber, the more tolerant and manageable the ski.
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: they are more manageable and buoyant on soft snow. When taking corners, the edge length offers more traction on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the more manageable your skis.
Free Float Rocker
Long rocker tip to facilitate fast-planing in powdery snow and facilitate taking of turns in hard snow. The slightly raised heel facilitates ski twisting.
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.
Skins
The strongest colltex skin. 65% mohair, 35% polyamide and a specific treatment guaranteeing complete resistance to wear, excellent ascension properties, good gliding in all temperatures. The perfect "Allround" skin.
Weight
Ski weight without bindings: Size 177 => 1920g per ski size 184 => 2040g per ski Fitting weight: 1460g per unit
sidecut
139/99/125, radius = 18 m

    A great ski at an unbelievable price!

    I bought these skis (184cm - I'm 183cm tall and weigh 100kg) two years ago for £300 on special offer at a Decathlon in London. They are my only pair of skis. I prefer to ski mostly off piste, but will ski on piste when poor conditions or avalanche risks make it the only realistic option.

    They are not bad on icy pistes and compare reasonably well to pure piste skis for that purpose. Where these skis truly excel is off piste on powder and deep snow and are fantastic in untracked or chopped up powder with a wide front giving decent float. They're not so great at the short turns required for skiing in-between the trees because of their weight and length but they still work.

    I've done some digging and have noticed that these skis share the same dimensions as the Head Rev 98 and Protostellar 98 skis, leading me to believe they're made in the same factory on Head's slightly older tooling and maybe with slightly cheaper materials. The bindings are the latest up-to-date Tyrolia Adrenalin 13 bindings and cost around £200 on their own (unfitted).

    So, the skis are good, but uniquely, the addition of touring bindings and skins into the bargain makes these skis an unbeatable package. Yes, there are skis that weigh less than these, but they also cost much more. When doing short (1-2 hours) ski-tours, I seem to be suffering no more or less fatigue than those on much lighter equipment, however longer tours may take a more considerable toll.

    These skis represent a budget conscious and highly effective way of accessing decent off-piste snow, out of reach to those without the correct equipment. Equally, they are capable on-piste and are therefore a good choice for those who only want one pair of skis and don't want to spend a fortune!

    Včera 30. 12. 2017 jsem si v prodejně HN SPORT v Bedřichově, na doporučení pana Hofmana, půjčil testovací lyže WED`ZE. Vyzkoušel jsem je na nočním lyžování ve zdějším středisku a byl jsem nadšen. Dnes, až přestane pršet, půjčím si je znovu. :D

    ski muy completo tanto fuera com en pista

    Lo estuve probando ayer en Masella y me sorprendio ,pues teniendo nieve polvo dura, pensaba que responderian mal por el ancho de patin , y fue todo lo contrario,te permitian girar en corto correctamente. En nieve virgen por su flexivilidad se han de comportar bien seguro.Y la opción de la pieles y fijacion mobil esta muy bien.
