Here is the preliminary information on the 2002 G3. Some shops have seen only one version, the Motion, which comes with the new Marker binding, but it will be available w/o the binding system. Note the new sidecut (108-70-96) as opposed to the dimensions of the G30/31 (106-69-92). Although I have not skied it yet, the new model skis more like an X-Scream or Mod X Pro. The straight-ish tail is gone, which some of us really liked about the G30/31. Also, the 2002 model is reportedly softer in flex to accommodate for the wider tail. For this reason, many more aggressive skiers were desperate to get a hold of the 2001 model. I would like to try the new G3, and even if it is a bit softer, I should still rip much like the previous verison. Last, the sizes for the G3 have changed as well - 163, 170, 177, 184, 191 (very much like Rossi sizing). I suppose that makes my 193 G30 a keeper! Also, big guys might have no other choice than to go with the 198 G4.
