Manufacturer's Description

The A-Star is the widest ski in the Prior lineup, developed in 2013, the A-Star was designed to excel in the deepest of conditions.  With a 125mm platform, the A-Star is guaranteed to produce faceshots and is unsinkable. Don’t let its size fool you, the A-Star is surprisingly nimble in tight spots and solid at speeds. It’s no surprise that the A-Star is the go to ski for the Prior Staff on those 20cm rule days! 

XTC Carbon Construction is available as an upgrade to all A-Stars and saves an average of 500 grams (1lb 1oz) off our regular quad glass Ski construction.

Profile: Hybrid Rocker

Best for: Steep and Deep. When coming up for air is a priority and when sticking deep landings is a must.

Rider Type: Expert off piste skiers.

Mounting Recommendations - The A Star’s mounting point is open to interpretation. Although Boot Center is recommended, it can be moved forward up to 5 cm’s for a progressive upright style skier and back as far as 2 cm’s from Boot Center for an aggressive race stanced skier.
