Dynafit Beast 98 Ski - Women's

Finding the best snow a week after the last storm requires some additional effort. When those sheltered north-facing couloirs seem like the best bet, step into the Dynafit Women's Beast 98 Ski as you get ready for the long skin into your line. The ski is built around a stout ash and poplar wood core that helps save weight during the skin up and maintains stability when you're skiing aggressively on bigger terrain. The ski's 98mm waist puts an emphasis on versatility, so it'll handle everything from windboard at the top, sheltered pow in the middle, to a little bit of the crusty stuff when the apron starts to twist to the east. The Beast isn't your typical backcountry ski, though—its Double Elipse profile consists of a full rocker profile to give the ski a predictable and playful feel as you enter and exit a turn.

  • Versatile backcountry ski ideal for powder-seeking tours;
  • Midfat 98mm waist makes the most of variable conditions;
  • Full rocker profile has a floaty and predictable feel;
  • Full sidewall construction is durable and stable;
  • Ride Tip helps reduce chatter when conditions turn firm;
  • Carbon and fiberglass laminates increase torsional rigidity;
  • Item #DNF00CO.

Hi! This is Hub with Cackcountry. Come out enjoying a beautiful spring day and the Wasatch mountains. Here near our home base in park city Utah. I'm standing here with the beast 16 binding. We alluded to this a little bit earlier, in the year that we are going to be one of the few, actually the only online retailer in North America. That's going to be allowed to carry this binding. We're gonna have roughly a hundred pairs for the fall/winter 13-14 season. It's a very limited release. There's 2,500 worldwide 850 in North America and a hundred of those are gonna be here at Backcountry.

I want to go through a few of the technical aspects of the beast binding because it's obviously quite a bit different than a lot of the dena fit products that you've seen in the past. First thing I'd like to kind of mention is obviously you can tell it still has the tech inserts that we've come to know and love from the dena fit brand which allows you great freedom of motion. When you're hiking uphill there's no resistance points. As you're climbing also you're climbing more off the ball of your foot as opposed to having a pivot point that's a little further in the front which feels like more of a natural walk motion so as with a lot of the other Dynafit bindings.

This button is going to allow you to enter the binding by simply pressing down on it. The teeth will open up and then you'll allow you to sit into the tech inserts in the front of your boot. Now when you're actually going into walk mode this throw would go forward which prevents the toe piece from actually pivoting. When you do go into ski mode and you put your throw back in place here you will actually have the binding that's gonna pivot laterally in the front which is something completely new for dena fit. It's going to allow you a lot better release in terms of lateral release as well as vertical release from the binding on the heel of the binding.

Obviously, this looks quite a bit bigger than anything that we've seen from Dena fit in the past and as I mentioned before the Dynafit binding even though it's quite a bit burly are looking it still is keeping the weight. You know shaved down at night. 35 grams is still a really lightweight binding for the amount of safety protection and performance that you're going to get out of this piece.

The first thing that obviously you're going to notice is the pins. Have changed from a round pin they've had in the past with all the dena fit tech bindings to an oval eyes pin now. The oval eyes pin is going to have more surface area so it has greater contact with the boot and with greater contact with the boot. You'll be able to transfer the energy a lot easier to the ski and it's going to give you a lot more lateral rigidity on the downhill.

Now when you're actually going to go you know if I was going to step into this binding and go into ski mode. All I would simply do is step in you'd be locked in and ready to go. Now when we're gonna go into tour mode you would engage the front of the binding and then all you do is pull this first throw down and it's going to lock out both the brake and put in your primary climbing post for your uphill mode.

Now you have a secondary climbing post which actually will flip over and you can easily flip it over with a pole and it locks into place on top of the secondary climbing post. It's easier to just you can pop it out with your pole. Get it back in place like that the other things that you're going to notice right off the bat is the increased size of the spring in the rear of the binding. Now this does have a release value of 16. As I've mentioned before which is not dim standard because no tech bindings at this point are actually din released standard. But what is known as its release value so it's going to be very comfortable to that. If you're familiar with a din setting the other thing is obviously.

It does have two points of adjustment here for your din which is going to adjust the upper spring and then as well as your lateral release which is going to be adjusted from the rear of the binding. Now when you want to go out get your skins off and everything you're done at the top. All you do is pop this right out-of-place. Click it back step in and you're ready to go now.

The other really important factor here is the elasticity of the entire binding. In the past a concern has been the people, you know if they were coming off a large air or really compressing on the tail coming out at a high speed turn but the pins can actually move a little bit in the back of the boot which generally speaking is not a problem with this new rear piece and front pivoting a toe piece. It actually has an elasticity to the entire binding that will keep the pins at a constant pressure with the rear of your boot. So you never have to worry about pre releasing from this binding.

This is the best 16 binding. We're really excited to be the exclusive online retailer for Denafit in North America to offer this to the consumer. If you have any more questions about the binding, about the process of mounting the boot, and bindings, and skis together, feel free to call our gear heads. They can answer any questions that you may have on this any dena fit product or any other product that we have at Back country.

K2 Talkback 88 Ski - Women's

As the middle child in K2's women's backcountry-specific ski lineup, the Talkback 88 Ski has the versatility to tackle long alpine missions or quick spring laps with equal zeal. Its narrower 88-millimeter waist won't weight you down on the skintrack, and, when paired with the rockered tip and tail, offers up just the right amount of flotation in softer snow. Since every backcountry adventure isn't always powder-filled, underfoot camber gives this ski a reliable edge hold on any firmer snow you may encounter.

K2 shaved some weight of the Talkback 88 this season, yet managed to maintain excellent downhill performance when it comes time to strip skins. A Titanal spine and carbon reinforcement is to thank for this ski's impressive power and stability, while the paulownia wood core is responsible for its efficiently light weight on steep ascents. K2 completed the Talkback with snow-shedding topsheets to ensure that you aren't weighted down by piles of powder as you head back up the skinner for lap four of the day.

  • Lightweight touring ski to crush steep ascents and style steep lines;
  • 88mm waist for quick ascents and fun, nimble descents;

Fischer My Transalp 90 Carbon Ski - Women's

Get out in the fresh snow and enjoy beautiful views with the MY Transalp 90 Carbon Ski from Fischer. This touring ski is loaded with features to make your precious time in the backcountry more enjoyable. Its wide waist keeps the ski buoyant as you find untouched snow while the early rise tip stays on top of the powder as you break trail. Fischer focused on reducing weight when designing the MY Transalp for less fatigue on the ascents and more energy for the descents. To achieve this, they constructed the ski with a poppy wood core that has AirTec channels for a light and responsive ski.

Not wanting to sacrifice performance for weight, Fischer equipped the ski with Carbon Tex, a sandwich sidewall construction, and their lightweight aeroshape design. The Carbon Tex weave dampens the chatter at high speeds that's all too common in lightweight skis. The sandwich sidewall construction furthers the ski's stability and grip at high speeds while the aeroshape design provides extreme torsion stability.

What's up guys! Matt Berkowitz here at Fisher is gonna tell you today about a new product for us for 1617. This is the transalp ts pro boot. This boot was designed out of the already successful trans out boot lineup.

Couple features, we have here a couple things that make it different from the rest of the trans out boots are we injected this one with pu injection, so this is not a vacuum boot. This is a pu injected boot 130 flex so this is the stiffest boot in the trans out boot lineup.

We also put alpine buckles on here in a beefy power strap. So major difference between this boot and the rest of the trans out boots is gonna be weight in performance. This is for your guy who is driving bigger skis. He's hopping on the ranger 108 driving that wider ski not super. Concerned with the weight on the way up still a pretty lightweight boot. You're looking at 1800 grams in this boot in a 26 v.

Couple other key features to the transalp line of boots certified Dynafit inserts here so completely reliable. You've got an ultra lawn liner here. Which is also a thermo formable super easy ski walk mechanism trans alp ts pro. For more information check out fischer sports com.

Hi! It's Andrew from Back Country skiing Canada. We're here at boulder hut adventures. You can see the hut behind us here. Just wrapping up a week of fun ski touring and want to talk to you about the Tour 1 waner 112. We've been checking out for the weekend for most of the season actually the tour one. Is one of three constructions options. Offered by dps you also have a pure. Three which is a stiffer somewhat heavier ski and a hybrid which is has. Some carbon but more traditional construction as well.

This is new, this year. I'd have to say the most remarkable thing about the thing about it is its weight for the tour one is only one thousand five hundred and fifty grams and that's for 184 ski. This is the 184 ski that we have here. It's remarkably light, especially with a benefit binding. As we have them here. Just saying a little bit about the dimensions 141 at the tip 112 here and 126. Excuse me, 128.

Here we've also reviewed the regular construction of the winter 112. If you'd like to see that review check it out right here. So, what's different about the tour one construction is it's also a prep reg carbon glass fiber laminate construction. Unlike the regular winter 112, there's a full cap here. You can see here and there's a balsa core and textured polymide. Talk is what the top sheet is and also like many dps skis. They call this paddle tech which means it's wider at this point here, so we've had a variety of conditions here at boulder hut over the week.

This is a perfect ski for good conditions. It's outstanding. On the up track because it's remarkably light like way lighter than anything that I personally have ever skied. But when you get into hard pack conditions or gender, you know breakable cross stuff like that, it might not be the ski to go with. But in the powder that we've had this week it was awesome and it's a great all-around ski. So again this is the dps winner 112 Tours One and just saying now it comes in a 168 a 184 and a 190 cm.

I wouldn't recommend this as a one quiver ski. It's kind of specialty ski because it's so lightweight. It's not really, you can't really ski it very effectively on the area but it's the perfect tool for good conditions back country missions. Especially long ones.

That's it Andrew from BackCountry skiing Canada. If you'd like to see more reviews and read trip reports and read the forum's go to Backcountry skiing Canada. Thank you.

La Sportiva Maximo LS Ski - Women's

Your penchant for human-powered descents may lead some to call you a glutton for punishment, but that could have something to do with the fact that they've never skied the La Sportiva Women's Maximo LS Ski. With a lightweight construction that will fly up steep skintracks like you're on an escalator and a fun-having progressive shape, this ultralight offering from La Sportiva will keep a smile plastered on your face whether you're skinning to the base of a steep couloir or making hop turns down a line you've been dreaming about skiing all season.

La Sportiva teamed up with with Italy's Ski Trab to produce the Maximo LS. Building its skis in Italy, Ski Trab specializes in ultralight backcountry skis that inspire confidence on the descent. Utilizing Ski Trab's 14-layer Technology, the Maximo is home to a wood core with air canals to save weight and a stiff-but-light construction to keep the Maximo responsive when you're confronted with less-than-ideal conditions. Adding to the ski's overall skiability, La Sportiva commissioned the Maximo to be built with the Low Omega Profile, which makes initiating turns a breeze and reduces the chance of hooking up edges as you exit your turn, giving the skis a fluid, easy-to-ski feel when you're making your way down techy lines in the alpine.

  • Touring ski that rocks the uphill and doesn't skimp on the downhill;
  • 92mm waist offers plenty of float in pow and is quick edge to edge;
  • Camber profile gives you good edge hold on exposed faces and ice;
  • Short turn radius boosts control in tight trees and rocks;
  • Wood core with air canals is lightweight, stable, and responsive;
  • Carbon reinforcements boost torsional rigidity and stability;
  • High quality sintered base easily glides across flat areas;

La Sportiva Super Maximo LS Ski - Women's

There are those that prefer a lightweight skin to the top over all else, including downhill performance, and then there are those that take La Sportiva's Super Maximo LS Ski out for a tour and don't have to choose. Built with SKI TRAB Lightweight Technology, the Super Maximo is both extremely lightweight yet rich with anti-torsional strength. The core is built from 14 different layers in order to reduce vibration, using lightweight wood interlaced with higher-strength wood, then reinforced with a fiberglass box. This process delivers both torsional rigidity and durability to an otherwise lightweight ride.

When it comes to downhill performance, the Super Maximo LS is well adapted to a wide range of snow conditions. It features La Sportiva's progressive Attivo shape, well tuned for adept steering, floatability, and forgiving turn initiation. This innovative shape ensures gradual entry into fresh snow, yet provides plenty of contact on sun-affected crust. Plus, the 94mm waist underfoot is wide enough to handle last night's big dump, yet narrow enough that it deals well with any wind-buffed slopes you might encounter on your way down.

  • A well-balanced touring ski for mixed conditions in the backcountry;
  • Medium waist underfoot delivers reliable performance in most snow;
  • Low Omega profile improves maneuverability and turn initiation;
  • Cap construction minimizes weight during uphill travel;
  • Lightweight wood core is reinforced for torsional rigidity;
  • Swallow tails designed for skins, stability, and steering precision;
  • Item #LSP00EH.
