Living up to its namesake, the relentless evolution of the Ego Trip continues. Now 15% lighter than last year’s ski, the Ego Trip Evolutionâs BBP core replaces Poplar wood in non-critical areas with strategically aligned Balsa and Paulownia, saving approximately 250grams of weight per ski. At just 1500 grams per ski, this HEXO2 ski is one of, if not THE, lightest full sidewall touring skis in the 90-100mm waist width category. Despite its gram conscious construction, the Ego Trip Evolution remains a ski for the skinner whose mileage would be worthless without the treasured descent. The ski’s directional shape and abundant tip rocker make it a very efficient skinner in the backcountry, particularly when breaking trail. These features also compliment the tight sidecut radius when in skiing mode, it‘s a ski that can really flow like water through tricky terrain. We listened to the skis growing fan base and added aluminium skin tabs to the tail of this year’s Ego Trip Evolution. These very lightweight additions prevent annoying skin slip during gruelling ascents or when the adhesion between the skin and the ski isn’t perfect. It might sound trivial, but it’s a real plus when you’re mid-tour and hours or even days from the nearest ski store.
