Manufacturer's Description

If your mission is to ride hard in the toughest conditions that the big mountain arena can muster then the A-Star is your ski. Every inch of this limited edition ski has been engineered to provide the sickest most advanced ride, from its smooth gliding Elastomeric vibration killers and the reduced swing-weight and torsionally strong tip and tail stabilisers to the turnability of the flat tail and float and turn initiation of the rockered tip. We also appreciate that life in the backcountry is tough so we gave this beast a bomb proof Sandwich Cap Construction with impact resistant ABS sidewalls and a rugged base. For pro level freeskiing step up to the A-Star.
