Manufacturer's Description

Conceived as the ideal daily workhorse ski for the dedicated backcountry skier, the Route 105 features floaty dimensions, durable materials and damp yet responsive performance. The result is a ski with both the power and control needed for ticking big lines and technical couloirs, and the durability to last through season after season of dawn patrols, powder laps and routine touring abuse. Built in Austria with a fiberglass layup, poplar wood core and flat construction for increased torsional stiffness, the Route incorporates many of the same design principles as Black Diamond’s Helio Series, with an emphasis on durability that makes it ideal for 100+-day seasons in the backcountry. The versatile 105-mm waist tackles the full gamut of snow conditions, and the rockered profile makes for improved performance both on the skin track and in deep snow.

Versatile 105-mm waist handles a variety of conditions
Rockered tip and tail and traditional camber underfoot
Made in Austria with a pre-preg fiberglass layup and poplar core
Flat-top construction for increased power and torsional stiffness
Optimal Use: 70% soft snow, 30% hard snow
