NEW FOR 13/14: Lucky 7!

Looking for something fun and light? Looking for an all-around ski you can tour and freeride with? Looking for a Carbon ski at 40% less than our competition? Look no further.......7 is your lucky number.

Released in very limited quantities for 12/13 the 7 comes in full series production this year. The 7 is one of our lightest skis and combines the playful aspects of a freestyle ski with the weight of a touring ski. A 22M radius combined with a mild tip and tail rocker make this ski a tool for both the AM pow and the PM mank.

Designed with a forward recommended mount point, the 7 is a marriage of freestyle and freeride, inbounds and touring, playful and stable.

Get lucky and get on the 7.

Strenghts:
Tried these sticks in Årets last winter. Conditions were variabler, to put it mildly. Heavy snow mixed with rocks and som icey patches...classic Åre in other words.
The performance really well on gromers without any surprises really. The tips doesnt load up, they dont do anythingyet att all then just initiating the turneringen, which i like.
Sincerely it is a crbon skicka they obviously feel Light but since it is braided carbon you get a feeling in between of carbon and fiberglass. Its Light but at the same timer more damp then a regular uni carbon ski feels.
Som, Light, not so snappy ( dont mix it up with dead, cause they are not). The version i tried hade a really stiff and supporting tail which I like on charging skiss, but on a playful ski like the 7 it is better with a little more forgiving flexibel which they changed for the new version.
The 7 really skies differently then the other skis in The down range but have The same auto smear capabilities which seems to be the down dna.
Mount could have been a little more forward but at the same time it is more of a freeride jibb/fun ski then a bc kickar ski a la opus or moment ghost train. With that said it is a really good allmountain ski for someone looking for a ski that is easy to ski and at the same time holds up on piste as well as offentliga piste.

Weaknesses:
I would like to see just a little rocker adjustment in The tail just for The balance of the ski.

Summary:
Good allround ski that you can put everything from a standard binding and just have a blast all over the Mountain or throw tech-bindings on them and have a ski that both can kill vertikal and deep and/or steep lines.

Length on the ski: 188 cm
