Manufacturer's Description

The DB3 combines the ease of floatation in deeper snow with edge grip and performance on piste. Introduced in 2013, the DB3 utilizes 19mm of taper and a 105mm waist to create a unique floatation technique; its large shovel creates float while the taper allows the back end to drop in deeper snow conditions. It maintains a traditional camber profile with a slight early rise in the nose for turn initiation. The DB3 is an ideal option for someone looking for versatility, both on and off piste.

Profile: Mild nose rocker profile with traditional camber throughout the rest of the ski. A perfect combination for turn initiation, edge hold and float for this shape.

Ride: The increased taper and sidecut provides insane trim, float and manoeuvrability in powder conditions compared with standard freeski shapes.

Conditions: Powder, all mountain, trees, glades, open alpine bowls, quick turns, cruising groomers. 

Mounting Recommendations: Boot Center is recommended.
