7 fractions of a millimetre might not sound like much, but when it comes to edges, it adds up. The 2.5mm edges on our CT 1.0 stack an extra 35% of height on top of our already super-durable standard 1.8mm edges.
Carbon Stomp Pad
Carbon reinforcement underfoot adds additional strength to a freestyle ski, where it matters most. As well as protecting the wood core against heavy duty impact on rails, this carbon reinforcement underfoot adds stability and vibration absorption under your boots.
Symmetrical True Twin
An identical twin tip height, and width in both tip and tail ensures effortless switch skiing for all your freestyle needs.
With micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold and torsional stability while the ski’s topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, protecting the fragile join that can be prone to chipping.
