Manufacturer's Description

Test winner in the Freerando category in the French ski magazine Skilabo and Lebontest.fr

Based on the same modern geometry as Opinion 98, but with an ultra-light carbon fibre construction, which makes the model unique on the market. This playful and freeride-oriented touring ski is optimized for soft snow, but despite its low weight it also handles all kind of snow conditions thanks to its stability and dampening.

The Carbon2 is the flagship construction in the Extrem Skis range with two full diecut layers of pre-preg carbon fiber and pre-preg glass fiber. In order to further decrease the weight, and increase performance, a very advanced hybrid core consisting of poplar, bamboo and Isocore foam is used together with the ultra-light aerospace material Tubecomb in tip and tail for lowest possible swing weight. In 186 cm length the weight is 1500 g per ski.

Just as the normal Opinion series the Opinion 98 Carbon² is more playful and quick from edge to edge, while Opinion 108 Carbon2 is the right choice if you are looking for more stable and freeride-oriented characteristics.
