With last year’s switch to a new production facility and continued partnership with ski designer Francois Sylvain, our ski program continues to showcase the benefits of unprecedented creativity and innovation. For 2010.11 we have more ski models than ever, offering our greatest diversity of personality and technology.
Our big new players include the Manhattan and Fever. They are members of our new Descent series designed to focus on confident downhill performance. The Manhattan will be our fattest ski with a waist of 108mm and has our most progressive camber line including our most aggressive early tip rise. Our first ever Sandwich+ construction combined with 2 sheets of Titanal insure that the Manhattan delivers unwavering power and stability. Meanwhile a unique Variable J sidecut, a sidecut that delivers a tighter turning radius in the rear half of the ski and a longer turning radius in the front half of the ski, keeps the Manhattan nimble, agile and easy to steer. The Fever is our new confident power house for aggressive all-mountain skiers. The Fever is designed with a magical 100mm waist and a moderate amount of early tip rise giving it the tools to easily rip through all conditions. A titanal reinforced core and solid ABS sidewalls top the Fever off as G3’s new most aggressive all-mountain ripper.
Our 2010.11 Mountain Series will include 2 members. Back by popular demand is the Tonic and the new member of the series is the Mass Transit. The Mass Transit is bigger and better and has taken the Rapid Transit to a new dimension. Using a new updated Asymmetric geometry, a 95mm waist, reduced camber underfoot, and early tip rise, the Mass Transit is a relaxed all-mountain explorer perfect for those who want a ski that does the work for them.
The SoulFly is the newest member of our lightweight Journey series with the ZenOxide, Saint, and Spitfire LT making repeat appearances. Our new SoulFly is an innovative super lightweight touring ski built with a 83mm waist, our new 10 degree capped construction and trail breaking razor low mass tip design. The capped construction and carbon fiber layup make for a super lightweight build, while the razor low mass tip insures that your ski will never dive while breaking trail or slicing turns through deep snow.
Last but certainly not least, our Women’s series continues to grow in success and innovation. The Zest-T and the Jam are the newest members to this series, while the award winning Zest and Viva will make impressive repeat appearances. With similar DNA to the Zest, the new Zest-T takes the Women’s series to a new level. Combining early tip rise and semi-capped construction with a Titanal reinforced core, the Zest-T is a spicy one designed for our most aggressive female skiers. To Develop the Jam, we squeezed all the sweetness out of the beloved Luscious and added a 95mm waist. The Jam is our women’s specific asymmetric+ ski designed with a looser asymmetric sidecut and early tip rise in order to make the ski responsive yet relaxed. The Jam is our new most approachable women’s ski. We look forward to sharing these new skis with all of you for 10/11 and we know you will be impressed.
