A strong versatile all-mountain ski for advanced to aspiring expert skiers wanting to excel on the groomers yet crossover and enjoy soft snow, too. The moderate tip and tail rocker creates a shorter running edge length for more maneuverability and pivoting speed control. Tip rocker effortlessly floats and tracks in soft snow allowing easy accessibility to crossover to un-groomed terrain. As speeds increase on hard snow the traditional camber and moderate rocker work together perfectly, engaging the entire sidecut resulting in full length powerful edge grip. New aerospace Basalt fiber layers with wood core are used to provide stability, dampening and snow contact. The new Outland 80 XT delivers confident access and versatility to venture anywhere on the mountain. 50% groomed / 50% un-groomed.
Ski Review's Verdict:
Smooth and stable and very fast, the XT is plenty of ski for the expert who craves versatility and maximum glide without sacrificing
performance. The shovel “draws” you into the turn with authority and grace.
Grippy solid feel, and wide enough to carry experts through a variety of snow and terrain. The true All Mountain Expert ski, and top pick with our test team for advanced skiers who need more versatility from one pair of skis, that will meet the demands of powerful skiers.
