Scott The Ski A Skis 2013
Despite it's name, the Scott The Ski A Ski is more than just a ski. The Elliptical Sandwich Sidewall Construction provides a stable ride in all kinds of snow conditions and offers a strong yet fun flex to control your turns how you want them. Scott wants to ensure that you get out on these planks as soon as possible, so they gave them a factory finish with pre-tuned edges and a micro structured CNC stone grind, allowing you to take them out of the box, attach some bindings, and head to the nearest snow-covered hill. The Pro-Tip Rocker shape of these skis also offers more consistent flex and a nice lead to your ride down the mountain. When people ask you about the Scott The Ski A Skis, you may tell them that they're skis, but we both know they are so much more.
Pro-Tip Rocker - Features a combination of progressive shape and increased tip heigh and radius. Scott's Pro-Tip produces a more consistent ski flex and predictable turns.
3Dimension Sidecut - 3Dimension combines 2 radii with a central flat line under foot. The tip and tail radii allow for easy turn initiation while the flat line provides stability, power and precision. Designed in conjunction with Scott's Freeski Team Athletes, 3Dimension Sidecut provides a level of versatility, balance and power under foot that meets the demands of the world's best skiers.
Variable Turning Radius - 14m/18m/11m on 155, 15m/19m/12m on 165, 16m/20m/13m on 175, 18m/23m/15m on 185
Full Ski Length Wood Core - The full-length, wood core produces a more consistent ski flex and creates a homogeneous transition between middle part and rockered tip and tail.
Factory Finish - Scott skis come direct from the factory "ready to ski" with Scott factory finish. Every factory finished ski leaves the factory with side edges ground at 89° and base edges ground between 0.5° and 0.8° for exceptional performance. The base is finished with a micro structured CNC stone grind so you can mount your skis and hit the hill, no tuning required.
Sandwich Sidewall Construction Laminate Elliptic - Scott’s Elliptical Sandwich construction offers exceptional torsional stiffness while providing a consistent and confident flex, delivering precise edge control.
Pre Track - When developing Pre-Track, Scott designed skis with wide tips and/or slightly turned up tails. With Pre-Track, Scott skis employ a smaller effective edge for short radius turns on groomed slopes and a longer effective edge when making bigger turns or skiing off-piste. The result is a more precise, stable, reliable and versatile ski.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
- Terrain: All-Mountain
All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
