Manufacturer's Description

The Husume was released in 2010 and since then has gathered a legion of supporters ranging from professional guides to adventurous weekend warriors globally. The key to the Husume’s popularity is that its design excels both as a touring/powder ski and a resort freeride ski.  A mid fat waist of 109mm, makes it nimble from edge-to-edge when on the groomed runs, yet skins like a workhorse on ascents in the backcountry and rips powder like a dream. For the off piste focussed, all mountain, backcountry ski connoisseur this ski certainly belongs on the “skis to own” bucket list. Just ask Backcountry Magazine, they’ve presented the Husume XTC Carbon ski with their coveted Editor’s Choice award in 2013.

The Husume is named after a premier backcountry run accessible behind Blackcomb mountain only a few minutes from our factory.

XTC Carbon Construction is available as an upgrade to all Husume skis and saves an average of 500 grams (1lb 1oz) off our regular quad glass ski construction while adding additional pop to the skis’ overall feel.

Profile: Hybrid Rocker Profile provides floatation and predictability in powder of all kinds…and allows it to turn real EASY! 2-4 mm of traditional camber underfoot provides energy from turn-to-turn.

Ride: Strong stable and predictable everywhere, the Husume provides the perfect amount of floatation in powder; stability in chop and crud with good edge hold on piste.

Conditions: All mountain, in bounds, slackcountry, backcountry, deep pow to hard pack the Husume handles it all!

Mounting Recommendations: Boot Center is recommended but can be moved either forward or back 1-3cms. Race inspired skiers with an aggressive stance may move it back 1-2 cms. Skiers with a more upright stance may enjoy the quicker initiation by moving the mount forward 1-3cms.
