STEAMBOAT, COLORADO, U.S.A. Seven thousand feet up in the Colorado Rockies, nestled quietly below one of the largest resort mountains in North America, sits a small but vibrant community that serves as a constant reminder that the Old West is alive and well. Never far from its ranching roots, Steamboat remains firmly linked to a Western tradition that sets it apart from every other resort in the world. Whether you’re stepping foot into a local pub, one of the

metres of the deep stuff annually, Steamboat never has to worry about fresh powder. Another thing you can count on as much as the Champagne Powder is the fact that lift queues are rare, since the layout of the mountain naturally disperses powderhounds across all six mountain peaks. Throw in the resort’s state-of-the-art lift system, including the eight passenger gondola, six-passenger express lift and five high-speed quad chairlifts, and you’re sure to spend a lot more time making turns.

WIN A FANTASTIC TRIP FOR TWO TO STEAMBOAT, COLORADO, U.S.A.

Visit www.ellis-brigham.com/steamboat for a chance to win a trip for two on American Airlines to Steamboat Colorado - Ski Town, U.S.A.® Last winter’s lucky competition winner Andy Craig tells us about his prize trip for two to Steamboat, Colorado. “Three months had passed since I got the amazing news that I’d won Ellis Brigham’s winter competition, sending me and a friend on a 7 day trip to Steamboat in Colorado, complete with accommodation in the luxurious Steamboat Grand hotel, lift passes and equipment hire. Email exchanges over the Christmas period with Steamboat’s consistently helpful Jenny O’Farrell guaranteed that everything was in place for me and my flatmate Rich to enjoy a pefect holiday. We arrived at Denver having enjoyed the flight on American Airlines and from that moment to our journey home (taking in the beautiful views of the Rockies at sunrise in the process), we were looked after at every turn by the fantastic staff across the resort. As for my first crack at snowboarding, any initial trepidation I was feeling soon melted away as my relentlessly positive instructor Justin educated me on the basics and, more importantly, taught me the importance of having a great time (the high five offered to me after linking turns successfully for the first time was the most enthusiastic the state of Colorado had ever witnessed). My afternoon lesson with Justin gave me the confidence to venture out and enjoy the mountain by myself for the remainder of the week and although by the end of the trip I still may not have had Shaun White shaking in his boots (something a few bumps and bruises were testament to), it didn’t matter; what mattered is that I’d been bitten by the snowboarding bug, and I now can’t wait to book my next trip. Once again, a huge thank you to the people at Ellis Brigham and Steamboat Resort (especially Jenny) for a trip I will truly never forget.” Cheers

Andy

Prize Winner Andy Craig in Steamboat

Ellis Brigham would like to thank our fantastic hosts for their funding and organisation of our photoshoot in Steamboat, Colorado, U.S.A. at the end of March 2010. This was our tenth year in Steamboat and every time we return it really is just like going home! The snow conditions continue to be epic and the hospitality ever warmer and we can honestly say that there is no finer place to take a snowsports holiday! Special thanks go out to Mike Lane, Jenny O’Farrell & Katie Brown who made the whole thing possible.

uk’s best real snow try-before-you-buy demo stores Our stores in the UK’s main indoor snow slopes at Tamworth, Milton Keynes, Castleford and Glasgow give you the opportunity to test the latest skis. We carry demo equipment from Atomic, Fischer, Head, Line, K2, Movement, Salomon, Scott and Völkl, meaning you can test virtually any of our extensive range before you make that important decision what to buy. No other store has such a complete range of demo equipment as Ellis Brigham, so if you’re in the market for new skis, then get to one of our snow-side stores to compare and contrast. Not only do we offer testing during normal shop hours, we also have a programme of out-ofhours testing. These include huge, multi-brand test events such as the November National Ski Test Tour we are running in conjunction with Fall-Line Skiing magazine and SnoZone. For further information about events please contact your nearest slope store, or log onto the Ellis Brigham website.

Milton Keynes 01908 609122 Castleford / Leeds 01977 522040

Demo For Free We’ve never made a charge for test equipment used at the indoor slopes, and this season if you demo skis at Ellis Brigham and decide to buy, we will knock the session price off the cost of your new skis. You could say we’re letting you demo for free! (Terms and conditions apply) Terms: All qualifying purchases must be made no later than 1 week after the last demo date. We will reduce the retail price by the cost of a 1 hour session. A stamped and completed demo form with receipt for slope time must be presented to obtain the discount. The discount can be claimed at any Ellis Brigham store upon presentation of the completed demo form and receipt. Offer may be withdrawn at any time. Not to be used in conjunction with sale prices or any other offer.

Braehead / Glasgow 0141 8854700 Tamworth 01827 59047

Not all the skis are available at every slope, so please phone in advance to ensure we can get the correct skis for you. It normally takes 1 week to transfer between shops, so please give us plenty of notice.

Snow Essentials

Skins are body-molded compression next-to-skin garments manufactured from the finest Lycra and Meryl Microfibre, scientifically engineered to provide support and muscle alignment to the smart-fabric covered area of your body. When compression is engineered to apply a balanced and accurate surface pressure over specific body parts, it triggers an acceleration of blood flow. This increases oxygen delivery to working muscles to enhance their performance. The circulation improvements also help the body to eliminate lactic acid and other metabolic wastes. The combination of these effects allows you to work at a higher rate for longer. The improved oxygenation is most marked in recovery from exercise. Skins will definitely change the way that you train and play as well as speed your recovery. You will feel fresher after heavy bouts of exercise and Skins™ also work to maintain an optimal skin temperature without effecting core temperature, due to Skins™ wicking fabric that promotes evaporate cooling. a) Men’s Snow Thermal L/S Top £64.99 Colour: Black/Orange (901) Sizes: S - XL

Baselayers Compared to traditional wool, the Merino fibre is a fraction of the diameter which is one of the reasons why Icebreaker doesn’t itch. The large scales on traditional wool act like barbs against your skin. Merino feels like silk. Outstanding Warmth: Icebreaker is so warm because of the millions of tiny air pockets in the fabric, which trap air and lock in body heat. Temperature Regulation: Your Icebreaker can warm and cool your body by absorbing and releasing moisture. Breathable: With Icebreaker the fibres breathe as well as the fabric, keeping you dry and comfortable. Icebreaker pulls moisture away from your body. No Odour: The natural Anti-Microbial properties of Icebreaker mean an odour free undergarment. Good for you and for those around you! Warm When Wet: Damp or wet, Icebreaker still insulates, restricting loss of body heat at vital times. Bio Electrical Harmony: In tune with your body’s bioelectrical fields, so no static cling.

Baselayers Arc’teryx Phase AR baselayers apply the latest principles of moisture management to dramatically enhance comfort and athletic performance. A sophisticated bi-component structure combines two types of yarn: super wicking Phi yarns rapidly disperse moisture across a wide area while 100% hydrophobic yarns reduce the amount of perspiration held within the fabric. The result is a base layer that regulates temperature across active and static phases, allowing quicker evaporative cooling when active and accelerated drying times when static. They feature a mechanical stretch-knit construction which eliminates the need for moisture-absorbing elastic yarns and an encapsulated silver ion treatment to eliminate odour for the lifetime of the garment.

Snow Essentials The North Face has developed the new HyActive system so you can find the ultimate layering piece, no matter where you are or how intense the outdoor experience. Rapid wicking and quick drying times help keep your skin comfortable for longer, and these baselayers are also highly odour resistant and hypoallergenic. HyActive Light uses an open piquet structure to enhance moisture transport and evaporation, making it perfect for high energy activities in warmer weather. HyActive Warm has a two-layer construction that traps warm air for thermal protection, great when skiing or mountaineering in colder conditions. HyActive™ is made with super light hollow core yarns, providing excellent thermal protection without the added weight. Hollow core yarns simulate the efficiency of feathers – natural lightweight insulators. HyActive™’s inherent properties wick moisture to a second layer, keeping the skin dry and comfortable. It dries quickly, feels warm on the skin and is also highly odour resistant. Additionally, HyActive™ requires fewer resources for production than many other yarns, helping to protect the environment. HyActive™ Light

HyActive™ Warm

Open Piquet Structure

Light combines the breathability of HyActive™’s hollow core yarns with an open structure fabric to enhance moisture transport and evaporation when conditions require only light thermal protection; ideal for cool to warm weather conditions and medium to high intensity activities.

HyActive™ Benefits • Excellent thermal properties • Lightweight • Rapid moisture transport • Quick-drying • Easy care • Stain resistant • Hypoallergenic • Odour resistant • Requires fewer resources for production Double Structure

Warm combines the warmth of HyActive™’s hollow core yarns with a two-layer fabric construction that traps warm air to provide excellent thermal protection; perfect for low intensity or stop-and-go activities in cold weather.

Protection

Active Shield 02 £75 Dainese’s highly breathable back protector uses 7 super-ventilated plates with a honeycomb structure, ensuring excellent protection while keeping the weight down. A lumber support with double adjustment and removable braces secure the fit, and it comes fitted with a Recco Avalanche Rescue System Transponder. Perfect for anyone wanting all-day comfort and lightweight armour. Protection: 7 external polypropylene plates with perforated honeycomb structure, high density padding and polyester mesh. Sizes: S - XL Code 780101

Dainese are the world-wide leader in action sports impact protection. Their goal is to combine movement, high speed and freedom with safety, something they’ve been doing successfully for nearly 40 years in motorbike racing and almost 2 decades in snowsports. The result of their knowledge and experience is a new range of winter sports safety equipment for 2010/2011 that performs well, remains light in weight and fits comfortably.

Action Short £75 Stiff polypropylene padding on the coccyx and thighs provide protection from hard slams. Soft perforated padding on the buttocks and hips offer further protection without affecting the overall comfort. A 3D mesh improves breathability. Protection: Rigid polypropylene protectors on coccyx and thighs, super-breathable shock absorbing material on buttocks and hips. Sizes: S - XL Code 780102

Action Knee Guard £30 This Knee Guard has lightweight, rigid plates resistant to abrasion and impacts, and Crash Absorb material with a shape retention memory for optimum fit adaption. Ideal for anyone who values their upper shins and knees. One size fits all thanks to an adjustable fastening system with 2 straps. Protection: Rigid perforated polypropylene protectors with Crash Absorb (elastic-visco nitrile rubber) material layer. Code 78010

Ultimate Back Protector Lite £57 Engineered to fit a women’s frame, this back protector offers hard shell protection with a lightweight Nidaplast insert providing controlled deformation on impact. High density padding and a polyester mesh absorb and distribute impact forces and improve breathability. The adjustable double-strap lumber band and the removable shoulder straps comfortably secure the fit.

Seamless Short Lady £75 It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an expert, all levels of female riders will benefit from these seamless stretch shorts. Protection comes from soft padding, and an elasticated mesh on the back and front improves comfort. The coccyx is protected from heavy falls; softer cushioning on the side makes the shorts less intrusive to wear. Protection: Soft polypropylene inserts on coccyx and thigh, super-breathable shock absorbing material on buttocks and hips. Sizes: S - L Code 780104

Snow Essentials Forcefield specialises in impact protection and soft armour technology. The brand prides itself on developing and producing cutting edge, innovative and class leading products. Synonymous with flexibility and comfort, Forcefield Body Armour provides comfortable, unobtrusive body protection with repeat performance technology, all tested to meet and exceed CE approved standards.

Back Protector Lady £85 Sized specifically to better fit a lady, the Women’s Sport Lite Back Protector not only offers superior back protection, but also impressive comfort – the built-in flexibility of the foam allows the armour to mold to the user. Adjustable shoulder straps and a double waist harness ensure a snug hold. Needs to be tried to fully appreciate just how light and nonrestrictive it really is. Protection: Nitrex shock-absorbing material combined with dense and lightweight layers of foam, so that energy is dispersed evenly over its surface. Sizes: M Code 784104

Back Protector Sport £85 Forcefield’s Sport Lite Back Protector offers superior back protection but also impressive comfort – the built-in flexibility of the foam allows the armour to mold to the user. Adjustable shoulder straps and a double waist harness ensure a snug hold. Needs to be tried to fully appreciate just how light and non-restrictive it really is. Protection: Nitrex shock-absorbing material combined with dense and lightweight layers of foam, so that energy is dispersed evenly over its surface. Sizes: S - L Code 784101

Limb Tube £50

Forcefield Action Shorts £85 Many impact shorts feel restrictive and uncomfortable. The Action Short is one that doesn’t. BeCool fabrics are used with Forcefield’s Nitrex armour to create shorts that are exceptionally comfortable and offer outstanding impact resistance. Protection: Dual layer of Nitrex. Buttocks, coccyx, pelvis, hips and upper thigh protected by individual removable pads so the short can be set to individual requirements. Sizes: S - XL Code 784102

Limb tubes offer lightweight and comfortable protection with high energy absorbing capabilities, to save your elbow or knee from potentially painful impacts. The removable Nitrex armour is housed in a Lycra and Cordura tube; a secure fit is achieved with the dual retaining straps. Protection: Removable Nitrex panels. Sizes: S - M Features Code 784103

Nitrex Nitrex is a shock absorbing material with outstanding performance characteristics – light, elastic, robust and with a slow recovery. Made of interconnecting walls, where the width at the base is always wider than at the top, it is triangular in shape and the walls all interconnect to improve strength. Nitrex slows the moment of peak transmitted force and evenly distributes the damaging forces over the whole surface. Most hard shell / plastic protectors will perform differently across their surface.

Flexibility The combination of Nitrex technology and multilayers enables Forcefield to offer lightweight and flexible protectors. This allows the armour to flex with the body without being restrictive.

Repeat Performance Technology The materials used offer repeat performance technology. Even after a heavy slam, the protectors can be used again.

Breathability

BeCool

The unique triangular Nitrex outer grid has been designed with vent holes at the base to improve breathability and also reduce weight.

BeCool is a unique polyamide fibre that has a greater diffusive area than standard fibres, this ensures high levels of breathability and comfort.

The Vulkan Classic range of knee supports are designed to provide an optimum amount of heat, support and compression. The products offer the best possible combination of materials, featuring quality neoprene with uniform cell wall construction and an even compression grade material. This is essential in helping prevent soft tissue injuries or helping them repair if already injured. Hinged Knee £60 The Hinged Knee is designed to be used by people with unstable medial / lateral ligaments, cartilage damage or for rehabilitation after cruciate ligament surgery. Removable carbon fibre hinges manage medial and lateral instability, allowing controlled, natural movement of the knee. The unique spiral lining helps to remove excess sweat and the adjustable Velcro straps ensure a close, comfortable fit. Sizes: S - XL Code 783101

Stabilising Knee £45 The Stabilising Knee provides stability around the knee through the use of fixed spiral supports, without inhibiting natural movement. Adjustable compression straps with Velcro offer added support and ensure the best fit; the open patella has a stitched in buttress to deliver the optimum amount of pressure and to help with tracking. A spiral lining helps to remove sweat, creating a more comfortable environment. Sizes: S - XL Code 783102

Knee Free £21 The Knee Free is comfortable and easy to wear, helping to relieve the pain of patella symptoms, unstable medial / lateral ligaments and cartilage damage. Made with a contoured, 3-piece design for the best fit and a spiral lining to deal with excess sweat. Sizes: S - XL Code 783103

Helmets Helmets for snowsports continued to feature heavily in the media this past winter with much debate about mandatory usage. We’re not about to tell you that you must wear a helmet, but we are going to show you a range which will make that decision much easier. We have something for everyone, from freeriders to park rats, price conscious first-timers to glamour queens; there are different fits, colours and sizes from extrasmall right the way to double extra-large. Every one has its European and American safety tickets and each one has been through a rigorous vetting procedure. And with the latest construction and design, helmets are lighter, more comfortable and better ventilated than ever before. Adult prices start at £50 so if you’re thinking of using one don’t bother renting – there’s no guarantee they’ll be available, the shape may be wrong for you and do you really want to use a helmet that’s been on so many other sweaty heads?! Helmets may not be the answer for everybody or provide unlimited protection, but they can make a difference and for that reason we encourage their use. They’re not just for experts or beginners, anyone who wants to maximise their safety on the hill should consider one. Come into one of our stores, talk through the options with our staff and try some on, you might just be surprised how light, comfortable and affordable they are.

Sizing Each brand has their own interpretation of what size head should fit in to a standard sized helmet (medium, large etc). To see how each brand measures up please refer to our table; to check your own head size, measure in cm’s around the circumference of your head, just above the eyebrows. Apart from the actual sizing, each brand of helmet will have slightly different shapes, so it is worth trying a few different brands of helmet on to see which best fits you best. As well as using standard sizes, some manufacturers choose to add levels of customisation and fine-tuning to each size for extra fit and comfort.

Sizing – In Form Fit System The In Form fit system gives the most comfortable custom fit in a snow helmet. An ergo-friendly dial at the base of the helmet provides up to 6cm of fit / feel adjustment for enhanced comfort and stability. The system also offers vertical tuning of the fore / aft positioning to match different head shapes and goggles. This means that each Giro In Form fit helmet covers a much larger range of head sizes than a traditional helmet.

Sizing – RED Air Band RED have introduced a new custom fitting process on selected helmets for this season. A thin, inflatable air pad runs internally in a semi-circle round the helmet, cupping the back of the head. Easily adjusted via a carefully positioned pump it improves the fit and comfort without adding extra weight.

Construction In-mold Construction In-mold helmets tend to be lighter and cooler than traditional versions. The system fuses a tough polycarbonate outer shell with the helmet’s impact-absorbing EPS foam liner, for good durability without excess weight. This combination of shell and liner results in a better ventilation system.

Injection Molding Takes place when a durable ABS shell and a lightweight EPS liner are bonded together. This type of helmet tends to have less vents, but they’re great value and very hard-wearing.

Sizing – Salomon Custom Air Fit

Venting

Ever the innovators, Salomon have developed a system for easily customising helmet fit. A widespread, slim air pad sits at the back and sides of the helmet with a small pump built into the soft foam lining at the back of the neck. When the helmet is on you simply press the pump a few times till the air pad inflates just enough to cradle the back and sides of your head, adapting the pressure evenly. Should you inflate too much a tiny valve at the back can be opened to let air out.

Modern helmets are comfortable to wear, due to improvements in fit and construction, as well as ventilation. The amount and type of venting in a helmet will affect which one you choose. More vents will normally equal more powerful cooling if your head warms up, but you should also consider whether the vents are pluggable (soft foam plugs that block the holes but can be removed if you take the helmet off), or if there is rider controlled venting that can be adjusted while riding so you don’t have to take the helmet off.

Trying On When you are trying a helmet on it should fit firmly and snugly on your head. Align the front of the helmet above your eyebrows and tighten the chin strap, make sure there are no unwanted gaps between the helmet lining and your head. In addition, check that the back of the helmet does not press on the back of your neck. It should fit snugly, when shaking your head it’s not supposed to move around. It may be worth trying the helmet with one of your favourite pairs of goggles to make sure they fit well together.

Super Fit Engineering

Black Limo

The foundation of the product design process. Every new Giro goggle or helmet is designed with reference to their database of anatomic measurements and from rider input, before being thoroughly tested on the mountain. The result is a product that fits and performs at the highest level.

Classic grey lens with a deep black mirror treatment that allows true colour perception with enhanced definition in very bright conditions.

True Sight Lenses Made By Carl Zeiss Vision

Rose-based tint that enhances depth perception, combined with a single-layer silver flash that tunes light transmission for medium light conditions.

True Sight lenses are engineered to maximise optical performance. By tapering the lens, Giro are able to minimise prismatic distortion and provide superior optics. In addition, these lenses are spherical in shape; this mimics the form of the human eye to provide better optics, and increases air volume inside the goggle to help prevent fogging. The manufacturing and quality testing of True Sight lenses is performed by Carl Zeiss Vision, the leading name in optics quality worldwide.

Injection Molded Cylindrical Using injection molding to make cylindrical lenses helps refine optics and minimise distortion that can occur in thermo-formed cylindrical lenses.

Rose Silver

Amber Scarlet High-performance amber base tint with multi-layer flash coating that heightens detail and depth perception in variable light conditions.

Persimmon Performance tint that heightens detail and contrast when light is flat.

three steps to buying skis Whatever your style and wherever you ski, there is a model that will perfectly match your needs, taking your skiing enjoyment to new levels, improving your skills and introducing new experiences. Choosing this perfect pair of skis couldn’t be any easier, just follow our 3-step guide. The facts have been made simple and the jargon de-mystified, all you need to do is read on.

Step 1 - Skier Ability To get the best product you do not have to pay the highest prices. The ski you will enjoy most is the one built for your needs and ability. If you are an intermediate, buy an intermediate ski. They are not ‘low-tech punter skis’ but use many of the high-end expert components tuned specifically to delight the intermediate skier. You will save money, ski better, improve faster and enjoy yourself more. Ability Indicator Chart

Novice Skiers tackling green and blue runs confidently, wanting to move onto more demanding terrain. Skis in this category will have soft tips and tails, so they will initiate turns smoothly and be easy to skid when it all gets a bit too fast for you! Very forgiving skis, aiding your progress. Intermediate Stronger skiers with the confidence to tackle reds. Also attempting easy blacks and some ungroomed snow, while still working on their technique. These skis are torsionally stiffer to provide grip at faster speeds, sidecuts will often be deeper, with a shorter radius on the piste-orientated skis. Advanced Skiers with good technique, capable of skiing any terrain. Skis in this category will be stiffer, with excellent stability and grip; they will be less forgiving, so require a skilled user. Expert Superheroes, professionals, committed seasonnaires, instructors, ex-racers. Specificusage skis for those at the very top of the ability level.

Step 2 - Where will the ski be used? To get the best performance from your new ski, choose a model designed to work in the conditions and environments you want to take it in. Terrain Suitability Chart Skis are graded for their suitability to different types of skiing. From a more piste-orientated environment up to big mountain and pure powder conditions.

Twin tipped skis use a scale which goes from park-based terrain up to big mountain and pure powder conditions.

Step 3 - Selecting the correct size of ski The size of the ski you need is dependent on a combination of factors. Weight Your weight is more important than your height when choosing the right size of ski. Heavier skiers need bigger (or stiffer) skis so there is more stability and surface area; lighter skiers should think about shorter lengths as they may have less power to flex (or bend) the ski. Imagine a ski being an extension of your foot. If the ski is too short/soft, all the body weight is concentrated under the binding area, making the tip and tail light and prone to uncontrollable skidding. If it’s too long/stiff, the opposite happens and the ski is mainly weighted at tip and tail. This makes it hard to initiate the turn and release your edges, giving the ski a twitchy feel. Choosing the correct length-to-weight ratio will allow even weighting of the ski along its entire length. The end result will be a balance of performance, control and ease of use. Intended Use The intended use has an important influence on the size. The following recommendations are assuming height and weight are roughly in proportion (again, be honest!). Piste Use - chin-height to eye-level, for easy carving and responsiveness. Longer for extra stability and wider, bigger turns. All Mountain - nose-level to forehead, can also depend on the width of ski chosen.

All-Mountain Carve

Built with narrower waists and often with a shorter turn radius. Perfect for blasting around the pistes and carving up the groomed snow. Still capable of dealing with other conditions.

All-Mountain

Can be a combination of dimensions, resulting in very different models. A go-anywhere do-anything ski to find challenges on and off piste.

Freeride

Usually with a longer radius but always with wider dimensions. A state of mind, continuously looking for powder, steeps, bowls and trees.

Freestyle

Twin tipped skis with waists of 80-100mm and softer flexing than similarly priced piste models. Freedom of expression, skiing in any environment.

Freestyle Backcountry

Twin tips with super-wide waists. Rocker technology and soft flexes improve powder riding. A new style of skiing that rips up the rule book.

Ability/Aggressiveness The longer the ski, the more edge there is for extra grip and the more base for stability. Cautious skiers should think about down-sizing as they do not need the stability at speed, but would benefit from extra manoeuvrability of a smaller ski. Ski Shape There are many new shapes and concepts in modern ski design such as ‘early taper’ and ‘rocker’. These new technologies aim to give a large, easy-to-use surface area when skiing in soft snow, resulting in the best floatation and increased manoeuvrability. In firm conditions the amount of ski/edge in contact is reduced, improving the handling. Many skis designed for soft snow can be skied at what seems to be a long length, without any affect on their all-round performance. Stiffness The final important factor in deciding the correct size is stiffness of the ski, both tipto-tail and torsional. A ski that is stiff lengthwise is harder to bend, making it more difficult to carve but stable at speed. Softer-flexing skis will nurture confidence and improvements in technique, because they require less energy and/or skill. A torsionally stiff ski is more resistant to twisting forces when on its edge, therefore, will offer greater edge grip. A torsionally softer ski will not have the same grip but it will be easier to control at slower speeds. Please speak to our staff for further help on ski stiffness. It is also worth considering the size of your previous skis as this can have a bearing on what would be suitable in your new model.

Freeride - eye-level to top of the head-height. Go ‘as big as you can handle’ for maximum floatation. Freestyle - ski it eye-level for the maximum ease of spinning and rail tricks, go bigger for all mountain versatility. Park - ski it eye-level for maximum ease of spinning and rail tricks but go bigger if you want the very best stability for landing and jumping. Freestyle Backcountry - forehead to way above head height! Go big or go home!

ski testing

Radius The phrase ‘radius’ used in this catalogue refers to a ski’s sidecut radius and can be thought of as the ‘natural’ turn-size of that ski. Assuming the edge of a ski is one part of a circle, the sidecut radius would be the radius of that circle. These figures are given in metres. Factors that affect the sidecut’s radius are the ski’s length and sidecut depth. The phrase ‘turn radius’ is slightly different as turn radius is variable and depends on the person using the ski – applying more reverse camber or bend will create a smaller turn radius. Typically, skis designed for on-piste skiing will have a short radius of 10 to 15m, so they will initiate a turn and carve easily, however, they can feel unstable and twitchy in heavy or chopped-up snow. Skis designed for maximum off-piste use will have a 22m+ radius, which makes them feel very stable through conditions found away from the piste. Freeride and allmountain skis are ‘somewhere in between’ as they need to function both on and off piste.

There are a huge number of ski brands on the market, which is why testing is essential in selecting the right range of skis. We enjoy it immensely but we also take it seriously. Over 20 skiers were involved in the various locations with abilities ranging from 2 week novices to instructors, and styles from piste-hounds to park-rats. This range of different skiers and resorts means we test every ski thoroughly. The result is only the very best skis make it into Ellis Brigham.

Sidecut/Shape The phrase ‘sidecut’ used in the catalogue refers to the ski’s dimensions at the widest points of the tip and tail, and at the waist. Measured in millimetres, sidecut is shown in the order: tip/waist/tail. A deep sidecut will create a ski with a small radius. This will generally apply to a piste-orientated ski as it will carve turns easily. A good example of this would be the Fischer Progressor 8+. Skis with shallow sidecuts, such as the Völkl Kendo, will have a much larger radius suiting deeper snow as turns are less likely to be carved. Furthermore, skis with more shape would potentially be trickier in cut-up conditions. As well as the actual depth of sidecut, or ‘amount of shape’, the combination of the tip, tail and waist widths will also affect how the ski reacts.

SIGB Ski Test, March – Bormio, Italy

Tip - A wide tip and narrow waist give excellent turn initiation as the ski will roll smoothly into a carve. This is especially noticeable on the Movement Jam.

EB Staff Training Ski test, May – Zermatt, Switzerland

Waist - A wide waist found on freeride and freestyle backcountry skis will offer lots of floatation and stability so you can cruise through deep snow, but on groomers they will feel slightly sluggish as they are slow to change edges. Narrow waists feel very quick from edge to edge when on pisted trails but will not float so well off-piste. Typical sizes at the waist are 62-74mm for piste-skis, 74-89mm for all-terrain, 89-100mm for freeride. Anything bigger than that is for the deep stuff, baby. Tail - Tail widths affect the feel of carving at the end of a turn. Skis with big tails relative to the waist, like the Head iSupershape Magnum will ‘hold’ at the end of a turn locking you into the carve and minimising loss of momentum. Skis such as the Atomic Cloud 6 have a narrower tail making them easier to skid and more controllable. Other icons you will notice in the ski pages: Best on Test. Ellis Brigham tester’s favourite skis in various categories. Best for Value. Skis that we believe represent excellent value for money. Best Seller. Skis that have been successful and popular over the previous seasons – always with good reason!

The most important selection choices were made during the Ski Industry of Great Britain Ski Test. Conditions were ideal for getting stuck in to the 711 pairs of skis from the 17 brands present. It soon became obvious that there have been a lot of advances in just one year. Fat skis are better and more versatile! All-mountain skis have improved performance in every terrain! Women’s skis offer bigger choice and better value than in any previous season! The choices were staggering but the results were clear. Every single ski in our range is an outstanding winner in its category. After the selection procedure, testing changed focus. In late May we visited the historic Swiss resort of Zermatt. A team of 15 shop staff were greeted by perfect scenery, quiet slopes and clear-blue skies! Every ski was demo’ed and vital first-hand knowledge of the products gained. We’re the only UK retailer to provide this level of dedicated ski testing for training purposes. By the start of the season we will have made 4 separate trips to 3 countries, as well as demo’ing at the UK’s indoor snow slopes, with literally hundreds of test results. So you can be sure when visiting an Ellis Brigham store the range is the best in the UK and the advice is comprehensive, based on experience and right for you! (Comments from the test team are included with every ski description over the following pages, and if you want to read in-depth reviews visit the Ellis Brigham community pages for reports and write-ups from our testers).

All Mountain Carve

Working closely with a team of top sports doctors, physiotherapists and professional athletes, Volkl have developed a range of technical developments to improve ski performance whilst carefully reducing stress on the knee and gaining a more balanced and even training of leg muscles. Bio Logic Stance – the toe area is slightly elevated above the heel, creating more direct turn initiation. This stance optimises knee flex angles and helps with a more dynamic posture. Bio Logic Geometry – models with this feature have a narrower tail and use a digressive sidecut (the radius is smaller in front of the binding than behind). The result is easy turn initiation, hassle-free release and lower physical stress. Bio Logic Flex – the stiffness profile of the ski has been carefully matched with the other features of Bio Logic to create energy saving yet high performance skis. Helps skiers create turns that are even rounder, smoother and more harmonious while still carrying speed.

Multi Layer Wood Core Designed specifically for freeskis this construction uses harder woods in the central section to deal with increased stress, while softer wood in front and behind provides the necessary flexibility and ensures light weight. Tough Box wrapping improves the strength and durability.

Power Construction and Tough Box

Atomic Cloud 6

Power Construction is based on the proven sandwich construction and combines Armed Edge with Tough Box. Tough Box wraps fibreglass strands around a sandwich construction wood core in numerous 4x4 wraps. Orientated at different angles it increases the strength of the connection between the ski and binding, this combination creates strong, powerful freeride skis. Armed Edge uses an extra tough steel edge with stronger keys to hold it in place.

Women’s Ski Hardware Atomic Cloud 6 + Atomic XTL 9 £260

Salomon Vital Touch + Salomon Z10Ti £350

Skiing is supposed to be simple and fun, though the first few weeks on snow can become complicated and stressful. The Cloud 6 is the ski to change all that with its effortless turning and confidence-inspiring stability. The 70mm waist is the perfect size to change edges swiftly and still feel secure, and the 13m radius makes carving turns of all sizes easy. A WFZ 3+1 construction ensures the ski is easy to flex and control, and the use of a Lightrak binding system means that edge grip is consistent along the ski and the overall weight is minimised.

The Vital Touch was one of the stand-out skis from all the testing we did last season. It’s lively, precise and incredibly easy to ski, effortlessly smooth and powerful when pushed. The 72mm waist is quick to switch edges and the 13.9m radius is versatile enough to let you hammer out quick sharp turns and still glide through long, graceful arcs. Powerline delivers efficient edge grip by dampening vibrations, and the construction and Lightrak binding system ensure weight is kept down. Ideal for confident intermediates looking for a great piste ski, we think it’s one of the bargains of the season!

Intermediates who want a fun, lively ski to progress on should look no further – the Aire is a nimble, precise but easy to use carving machine!

The Bio Logic stance ensures a balanced feel, the women’s specific core supplies energy and response, and the 3Motion binding system and Power Grip provide edge hold and smoothness. A real bargain, and a brilliant option for sporty first-time buyers.

Völkl Attiva Estrella + Marker 3Motion 10.0 TC £380

The Koa 73 was a really pleasant surprise during testing, with its light, playful feel and impressive levels of grip. On groomed snow it was easy and responsive, reacting quickly but always simple to control. Where the conditions had deteriorated the combination of a 73mm waist and a 15m radius offered stability and poise to calm nerves and build confidence. The lightweight construction and Literail binding system keep the weight right down and the Dynamic Grip Control improves the edge hold. This will make a great choice for first-time buyers who want versatility, performance and easy handling.

The Estrella is another ski that excelled on testing. It’s a precise, all-mountain carver, built to slay pistes of all colour no matter what condition the snow is in. The radius and waist are both bigger than its little sister’s, the Aire, and this gives it an extra level of versatility and the ability to venture into some easy off piste. The Bio Logic technologies used include the women’s specific geometry making the ski initiate turns easily and release smoothly. 3Motion and Power Grip deliver outstanding edge grip and make this a ski to perfect your turns on without being easy to out-ski.

Women’s Ski Hardware Atomic Cloud 9 + Atomic XTL 9 £395 It’s great to have one of last season’s best skis back, unchanged. The Cloud 9 is a high-class piste carver that loves to cruise but isn’t afraid to let the power levels shoot up. Traditional Camber, a tight radius and the stronger Women Flex Zone of 4+2 means the ski has plenty of energy, grip and precision, relishing short turns and groomed snow. A 73mm waist adds extra stability for skiing less perfect snow and trying different terrain, but pisted runs are the place where it truly shines and the reason it’s so popular. A really impressive ski! Tester’s comments: Jenna (Tamworth store) ‘Lively, quick edge-to-edge and really responsive. Stable at all speeds with smooth turn initiation.

Salomon Select Touch + Salomon Z10 Ti £400

Völkl Attiva Sol + Marker 3Motion 11.0 TC £475

Using the same shape as the Vital Touch, the Select keeps its siblings traits of liveliness, energy and effortless performance. Where it differs is that it uses a wood core and a titanal sheet to add extra power, precision and grip. This means you can really start to push it! The Lightrak binding system helps deliver this power smoothly along the ski and the Powerline dampening system ensures vibrations are minimised for outstanding edge hold. It’s a brilliant piste ski for good intermediates and above, and one where the price tag does not reflect the level of performance on offer.

The Sol continues Völkl’s reputation for making precise and grippy skis with awesome control and handling. Power Grip provides the edge hold and the Full Sensor Wood Core delivers the energy, making it unshakeable through mixed conditions and as smooth as silk on groomed snow. The radius suits a variety of turn sizes and the dimensions are big enough to take on other terrain, meaning the Sol isn’t just confined to piste. It’s a well-deserved test winner and an ideal option for strong piste skiers who tackle all runs with the same aggression.

Never demanding to use, it delivers power, grip and energy in an easy to use way. The Speed Rocker is dialled for groomed snow and works perfectly with the 70mm waist and 13m radius for quick turns and lightning fast edge changes. Metal Laminate Construction ensures precision, Hybritech supplies grip, the Mod systems dampen vibrations and improve edge contact, and the ERS Binding provides speed and efficiency.

The Zephyr C-Line is a limited edition, high-performance piste ski built for women who appreciate quality and innovation. It has a slalom sidecut, so it loves to turn and relishes groomed runs, but this isn’t just a tight-turning one-trick pony! TUNE.IT adds impressive versatility – the flex can be adjusted to suit terrain or skiing style, soft for powder or easy skiing, stiff for ice and power, with a middle setting for everything between. Other features include a full wood core, titanal inserts, and an ultra-light, extremely strong, carbon fibre jacket, so weight is minimised and there’s zero compromise to performance.

Rocker Technology

The pad laid along the length of the ski edge acts as a shock absorber and a damper. The result is smoother ski-to-snow contact without any loss in energy transmission.

Salomon’s Rocker Technology refers to the use of inverse camber at the front part of the ski while keeping a traditional camber under foot and the back section. The amount is optimised to suit skier ability and snow conditions. The number corresponds to the amount of Rocker used and represents the distance in mm’s from the tip to the contact point at the front of the ski.

PowerLine An additional bar runs along the ski’s length to dampen vibrations and improve ski-to-snow contact for extra grip and control.

Total Edge Reinforcement Fibres are laid directly along the edges to improve durability and edge grip.

It’s packed with effective and high-quality features such as the Bioflex wood core for energy and stability, and an ERP binding system that improves control. The Mod features dampen vibrations for better edge hold and the All-Terrain Rocker ensures easier turn initiation in difficult conditions and better floatation in soft snow.

The Koa 84 has been gaining quite a fan base recently, with happy owners, very impressed testers and now a string of awards (including our own Best on Test). It’s a smooth riding, wide-waisted all-mountain ski that loves tearing up fresh powder as much as carving down corduroy. 84mm underfoot provides the floatation and a 16m radius ensures versatility. The Sandwich Sidewall Construction produces power, precision, and hard-snow grip; I-Beam delivers impressive stability and edge hold. It’s the ideal one-ski-does-it-all for everyone from confident intermediates to experienced advanced skiers wanting to ski every terrain and condition.

Confident intermediates and lighter weight advanced skiers wanting an easy to use all-condition ski with bags of performance, absolutely have to check out the Koa 78. Sandwich Sidewall Construction uses a wood core and sidewalls for excellent edge hold, the perfect amount of liveliness and a smooth flex. A 78mm waist and 15m radius ensure versatility so that it’s encouraging in soft and mixed conditions but still fun and responsive on hard snow. Air Carbon and the X11 binding keep the weight right down, making it less tiring to use and meaning you spend more time on the hill.

This new model from Movement is part of the next generation of all-mountain skis, using oversized dimensions for impressive floatation and mixing it with a piste-style turn radius. The result is a super-smooth, laidback surf-feel on soft snow and powder, and precise carves of any size on hard-pack. Transitions from groomed to ungroomed are barely noticeable and stability through mixed conditions is grin-inducing. The 80mm waist provides the surface area for floatation, the massive 127mm tip delivers effortless turn initiation and the 14m radius ensures allterrain versatility. VA-TECH under foot and at the nose dampens vibrations and Sidewall CTS improves edge grip.

Tester’s comments: Katie (Braehead store) ‘Excellent ski. Felt light and nimble, especially in chopped up snow, yet still powered through the cruddy stuff.’

A wood core provides the energy, the 13m radius feels nimble and quick on piste and the use of Pro Tip 350 ensures simple turn initiation in all conditions. It’s the kind of ski that encourages positive skiing in all-terrain, from high-speed carving on firm pistes to strong, powerful turns in difficult snow, never damaging confidence or being difficult to use.

It’s a top-seller that has been around for a few seasons and gone through many changes but the Lotta Luv is always one of the very best, all-mountain, performance skis. Mixing an 82mm waist with a 14m radius ensures it’s versatile, using a Metal Laminate Construction with a Bioflex Core makes it powerful yet easy to use. Mod systems dampen unwanted vibrations and improve edge grip and the ERS Binding provides precision. And now, K2 have added an All-Terrain Rocker for even better turn initiation in all conditions and enhanced stability.

Early Taper

The core is made using thick strips for extra strength therefore less glue is required, saving weight. The result is tough, durable skis that feel light and lively.

The widest point of the sidecut starts tapering earlier in the tips, improving turn initiation and reducing tail drag and hooking in powder.

Fatty Base and Edge

4D Fibrecap

2.2mm edges and extra-thick bases are standard for increased impact resistance and durability, so you can tune your skis more times.

By layering the fibre in four directions around the core you get extreme strength in every direction. The 0º lay-up helps control the flex. The ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ 45º lay-up makes the ski torsionally more responsive. The 90º lay-up on the sidewall gives more energy directly to the edge of the ski.

Geometry G Cut – G Cut skis use 5 different radii to make the sidecut, with the tightest radius in the tail. The result is powerful turn exits and less unwanted tip hooking, with predictable, natural turns at any size and speed. P Cut – P Cut skis use 5 different radii to make the sidecut, with the tightest radius in the tip. The result is effortless turn initiation and solid edge hold, keeping the ski in the fall-line for powerful directional stability and handling.

The Celebrity 90 is a real jack-of-all-trades, with its twin-tip construction, 90mm waist and 14m radius. It’s happy cruising pistes, turning smoothly and responding when pushed; it’ll lap the park with the energy to pop and jump, with the balance to land tricks; and it’s right at home off piste in bumps, trees and powder.

The massive dimensions of the Kiku will have you floating over everything from the deepest powder to the heaviest slush, with the 23.6m radius ensuring stability and balance. The medium rocker shape gives 9mm of lift at the fore and aft contact points, to provide hassle-free turn initiation, and a 3-stage flex uses a stiff nose for powerful freeriding and a soft tail for easy release and fluid powder turns. It’s so enjoyable to ski and surprisingly easy to use. There’s no big secret to being able to ski untracked snow with smooth, flowing turns – just get a pair of Völkl Kiku!

The Black Rose is built for power, grip and stability through any conditions and on any slopes. It’s for the kind of all-terrain skier who always wants to ski off piste, whatever the state of the snow. The 87mm waist is big enough to cope with the deepest days but not so wide it can’t feel good on marked trails. The 19m radius is reassuringly stable wherever you go, and the sidewall construction ensures solid edge grip and precise handling even on the firmest of hard pack. It’s so much more than just a pretty topsheet!

The MissBehaved is a fat twin for powder-obsessed women, it’s epic in soft snow, playful on piste and more than capable in the park. A big waist and an All-Terrain Rocker provide impressive freeride performance. The bi-directional sidecut means it rocks when skiing forward and still feels comfortable riding switch. ABS sidewalls are tough and precise, 3.5mm edges increase durability, and Twintech construction leaves a curve at the join of sidewall and topsheet to help resist edge cuts and bangs. And if all that doesn’t convince you, the Bioflex wood core is tuned perfectly for women and ensures the MissBeheaved is lively and quick on groomers and smooth and stable in pow. What more could a girl want?!

We first realised what a good ski this was during testing on a cold, windy but snowy Scottish mountain – if it could bring a smile to our testers on a day like that, we knew it was something special. It’s a super-stable all-terrain ski that rips through any snow with power and poise. The full wood core and Power Construction deliver grip and energy, the 86mm waist and 17.7m radius provide stability in all conditions. On piste it’s precise and lively, through crud and chop it’s solid and in fresh it’s effortless. A brilliant all-rounder.

Now with a wider waist and more powerful sidewall construction, the MissConduct has grown up – making it one of the best value skis we’ve ever stocked! It’s an all-mountain twin that delivers wherever you go: park, piste, powder and everything in between. The All-Terrain Rocker has camber for grip and performance on firm snow, and a rocker nose for easy turns and smooth control in softer conditions. The directional sidecut ensures it charges on trails, the twin shape means it rocks in the park, and the 85mm waist provides the floatation. Awesome ski, amazing price.

Tester’s comments: Katie (Braehead store) ‘Charges through tracked, off piste and excels in powder; deceptively quick edge-to-edge. Great ski for an aggressive all-mountain rider.’

Völkl Unlimited AC10 + Marker 3Motion 11.0 TC £375

The Sensor 2 is one of the most impressive sub £350 skis we’ve ever tried, perfect for intermediates ready to buy their first ski. The 69mm waist and 15.2m radius make it feel quick and nimble on piste, darting from turn to turn, and swapping edges quickly. 3Motion creates a smooth, even distribution of pressure, Power Grip adds edge hold and confidence, and the 100mm tail makes the decision straight-forward whether to carve or slide the ski. The Sensor 2 helps everything click into place – it’s fun, lively, easy and encouraging.

The AC10 takes all the good stuff from the Sensor 2 and builds on it. A stiffer core produces more power, a wider waist means extra versatility and a slightly straighter sidecut provides increased stability. Power Grip is still there for reliable edge hold and the 3Motion binding system results in the same smooth flex and consistent energy distribution. All together it creates a ski that’s comfortable at speed on a variety of terrain, responsive and precise when it needs to be, and encouraging and reliable where the conditions get tougher. Exactly what confident intermediates need to enjoy themselves and keep improving.

Fischer Progressor 7+ + Fischer RS11 PR £410

The X-Wing 8 was our most popular intermediate ski of last season, and for good reason. It’s a really fun and smooth piste ski that has the dimensions to try other terrain. The 75mm waist and 15.3m radius ensure good performance whatever the snow – quick and solid on piste, with the width and stability to enjoy slopeside powder. The Lightrak binding evenly distributes pressure along the ski for reassuring edge grip and the Ti laminate creates energy and precision for better control and a lively feel. A great choice for first time buyers looking for versatility.

Without a doubt this is the best piste ski available under £450! It’s so smooth, responsive and flattering to use that good intermediates and lighter weight advanced skiers simply cannot fail to enjoy it, whatever the run. The Dual Radius sidecut ensures fast, easy turn initiation with confidence inspiring release from the tail; the 72mm waist is secure and stable on rougher terrain, but still agile and quick on piste. PowerRail produces even pressure distribution, sidewalls provide grip and precision, and the Air Carbon construction makes it light and lively. Very impressive!

technicalfeatures Intelligence

KERS Technology

At the heart of Head Intelligence skis there are Intellifibers that are able to transform mechanical energy into electrical energy. The higher the force, the more energy is created. It is captured in a closed circuit and fired back to the Intellifibers, which straighten instantly increasing the stability of the ski. The harder you ride, the torsionally stiffer the ski becomes.

KERS Technology works like a turbo charger that provides additional power and acceleration by stiffening the tail of the ski. Piezoelecetric fibres transform kinetic energy into electrical energy which is stored in an embedded chip. Maximum flex of a ski is experienced at the end of a turn. At this moment the microchip releases energy into fibres, stiffening the tail and immediately increasing rebound for maximum acceleration.

technicalfeatures I Beam

Dual Radius

A carbon fibre ‘I’ Beam is embedded in the wood core to improve torsional rigidity, giving the ski extra edge grip and better stability at speed.

The use of different radii at the tip and tail ensures faster turn initiation. A large radius is used at the tail of the ski, giving outstanding performance in long and short turns. A shorter radius is used at the shovel for direct and instant turn initiation.

Sandwich Sidewall Construction Full wood core with a double titanal sheet, reinforced with Air Carbon. The result is a smooth flex, powerful feel and excellent edge grip.

Air Carbon / Air Carbon Ti Air Carbon is an ultra-light and extremely strong material from the aerospace industry. It improves the handling and performance of the ski whilst ensuring the weight is kept down. When used with titanium, extra precision and grip is generated.

Flowflex TUNE.IT Flowflex TUNE.IT allows the skier to adjust the flex of the ski to suit piste conditions and skiing style, simply by turning the dial in the centre of the binding. Firmer for harder snow and more powerful skiing, softer for fresher snow and more relaxed skiing.

PowerRail The binding’s toe and heel pieces sit on a set of rails, joined together by ‘arms’, allowing them to glide and adjust when the ski flexes. The result is an even distribution of power along the ski, a smoother ride and optimum edge grip.

Anyone from confident intermediates to high-level advanced riders, looking for a solid unflappable ski to go anywhere, must consider the Jam.

The Titan is a much anticipated new model for this season. It’s a part of the i.Supershape range that use Head’s World Cup race technology to produce outstanding performance for advanced and expert level skiers. Using all the same radius and build criteria as a Magnum, it just adds some extra mm’s, creating an immensely powerful all-mountain ski. On piste the KERS and Intelligence combine to provide grip and acceleration, with the Freeflex Pro adding precision and effecient energy transmission. Away from groomers and trails the wider body produces stability and float. The end result is the smoothest, most precise and powerful all-terrain ski.

Freeride

technicalfeatures Dual Radius 2 combined radii are used to build the sidecut of the ski, making the ski more versatile.

Pro Tip Tip deformation is controlled on freeride skis by using a progressive tip-height radius. The bigger the tip-height radius, the more stable the ski will feel in variable snow. A lower tip-height radius suits firm snow better.

SSC Lam (Sidewall Sandwich Cap Laminate) The classic SSC construction is mixed with a cap finish on the upper part of the ski. This makes turn completion and initiation smoother and adds an element of forgiveness.

2 ribs extend fore and aft from the binding area to better distribute ‘load’. This 3D construction controls the ski’s longitudinal stiffness and is used in conjunction with specific fibreglass orientation to provide the right level of torsional stiffness. The result is a lightweight ski that remains strong, powerful, lively and precise.

Men’s Ski Hardware Black Diamond Stigma £400

Scott Mission + Tyrolia Peak 12 £600

Before we started testing, one of the spaces we wanted to fill in our range was for a lightweight touring ski that would really deliver on downhill performance. We had some in mind but once we’d tried the Stigma the decision was settled bar for the formalities of trying all the contenders. This new version of a classic BD ski is both lighter and wider, but still uses the excellent Dual Torsion Bow to ensure precise handling and a lively, powerful feel. On firm snow it’s agile and nimble, in powder it’s smooth and light, and in the crud and chop it’s balanced, stable and reassuring.

Look up versatility in the dictionary of skiing and you’ll find a reference to the Mission. It’s done more than any other ski to make people realise wider skis can be used anywhere and by any competent skier. Dual Radius produces easy initiation, as well as stress-free release for confidence-boosting manoeuvrability in any snow. The 89mm waist is ideal for every condition, Pro Tip provides stability in all snow and the SSC Lam build and full wood core ensure easy-to-access performance. It’ll take you from dabbling in the slopeside to riding waist deep powder, tracked out freshies, bumped up trees... whatever it is you dream of skiing.

Tester’s comments: Michael (Aviemore store) ‘Super light, good touring ski that still cuts it on piste. Really smooth, nicely balanced and quick edge-to-edge.’ Features: Dual Torsion Bow Radius: 16m (168cm) Sidecut: 124/80/108 (168cm) Sizes: 160, 168, 176

Salomon Lord + Salomon Z10 £495

Völkl Kendo + Tyrolia Peak 12 £535

This will be the third season that Salomon’s Lord has been helping aspiring off-piste skiers become freeriders. It’s a great option for good intermediates who want to ski more of the mountain, or for advanced and expert skiers who want a lighter, more forgiving all-condition ski. The Rocker 210 tip ensures smooth turning on firm and variable snow as well as improving control and float in powder. The wood core provides strength and liveliness, the Pulse Pads dampen vibrations for better edge grip and the Edge Armour and Reinforcement increase durability and impact resistance.

The Kendo is a totally new ski for this season, aimed at advanced and expert level skiers who realise there are many different conditions to ski on a mountain. Based on the Mantra, it uses narrower dimensions for better response and increased edge control, and a longer radius for improved stability in difficult snow. The core and construction remain the same, so power and grip are guaranteed, and the 88mm waist ensures versatility whatever the terrain or snow. It’ll leave ruts on ice, smooth lines in powder and cut tracks through everything else. Is this the ultimate all-condition ski?!

Tester’s comments: Jakub (Internet office) ‘Responsive on piste and easy to control off piste. Smooth ride in all conditions, nice floatation in deeper snow.’

Tester’s comments: Rob (Castlefield store) ‘Carves and holds an edge well on piste, quick and lively through bumps and variable terrain, and has the width to float in fresh snow.’

Atomic Access + Atomic FFG 12 £435

Salomon Sentinel + Salomon STH 12 £575

If you’re just starting to get into off-piste or pondering fat skis, it’s going to be hard not to be tempted by the Access. It’s a new ski using the latest ideas, but manages a package price of only £435! And if the price doesn’t tempt you the performance should. A rockered nose means easy initiation in all conditions and extra lift in powder, combined with traditional camber underfoot for firm snow grip and power. A 100m waist ensures maximum floatation, Step Down Sidewalls are forgiving but precise and the 20m radius is perfect. It’s effortless in powder, forgiving in tricky terrain and fun on groomed!

The Sentinel is Salomon’s new freeski model, aimed at freeriders who want to tackle everything on the mountain. A full wood core makes it lively and tough, bamboo stringers increase pop, titanal sheets improve edge hold and sidewalls ensure precision. Rocker 290 uses camber under foot for response on firm snow, with easy initiation and better float offpiste. The 21m radius provides stability in all conditions and the 95mm waist is versatile enough to glide over powder and lay down carves on ice. Stable, powerful and impressively comfortable on all terrain – a worthy test winner.

Tester’s comments: Tom W (Castleford store) ‘I could’ve skied these all day. Grippy on groomed runs, lively and poppy, and soft in that rockered tip to make turns at any speed and in any depth of snow easy.’

Freeride

technicalfeatures MX Binding System

Mod Monic

Central to the design are MX titanium hubs embedded into the core of the ski underfoot. Rather than using a plate to transfer power, the hubs allow for direct contact between the binding and ski. As well as being very direct, the MX system is perfectly suited to modern, wider skis. MX is 40% wider than the contact points of a standard binding system, generating more power to the edges quicker and more efficiently.

The Monic is a solid zinc mass that works in conjunction with the Mod structure to focus dampening at a targeted location.

Mod Technology

M2 Binding System The M2 system is designed for both recreational and performance skiers. It consists of a free-floating toe and a fixed heel. This combination generates more power, precision and quickness under foot.

Mod Technology is a high performance suspension system consisting of a secondary core of elastomeric material. This flexes and moves independently of the primary core, so that the overall ski flex is unaffected. Vibrations are absorbed along the skis’ length, resulting in better edge hold and control.

Traxial Braiding Developed by K2 in 1988, Triaxial Braiding is still the best known process of applying fibreglass to a wood core. This process consists of sending a milled wood core through the patented Triaxial Braiding machine, where the core is wrapped by interlocking strands of fibreglass. This unique method produces skis that have a great deal of torsional rigidity and strength, while maintaining all the lively characteristics of a wood core ski.

Metal Laminate Construction

For bindings see page 174-175

With 2 sheets of titanal running along the length of the ski, Metal Laminate skis are the highest performance, most complex design available from K2. Built from the base up, this construction consists of alternating layers of fibreglass and titanal surrounding a wood core. While less forgiving than a Torsion Box construction, Metal Laminate provides damp, accurate, unshakeable performance ideal for expertlevel all-mountain skiers.

Bioflex Core All T:Nine skis use a mix of 2 different woods, fir under foot, and spruce in the tip and tail. The spruce is a softer, lighter wood resulting in the T:Nine’s characteristics of simple turn initiation, lightweight and ease of use. The fir, being more solid and dense, provides confidence inspiring control, stability and powerful energy transfer.

Torsion Box Construction The use of Torsion Box construction provides forgiveness, ease of use, responsiveness and energy. It’s a simpler design, compared to the Metal Laminate construction, and consists of a Triaxally Braided wood core. Depending on the dimensions of a ski and the amount of flex and torsion built into it, one model of a Torsion Box ski can differ greatly from another.

Men’s Ski Hardware Line Prophet 100 + Tyrolia Peak 12 £495

Völkl Gotama + Tyrolia Peak 12 £560

The Prophet 100 is one of the best, and most fun, multicondition skis in our range. Using a Maple Macroblock core, traditional camber and 4D Fibrecap, it’s responsive and lively on firm snow, with the right amount of precision and grip to hold an edge on icy terrain but forgiving enough to handle beautifully in powder. The 100mm waist has the base area to float on even the deepest of days, but never feels big or cumbersome on piste. The 17.2m radius works brilliantly with the P Cut geometry to aid turning and improve stability, and the twin shaped tail reduces hooking. And it’s under £500!

This is one of the most exciting and impressive freeride skis you could ever wish for. Völkl’s Medium Rocker shape is used with a 3-section flex. The result is plenty of tip and tail lift for easy steering and confidence in all conditions, together with a flex that is firmest at the front for better control and softest at the tail for smoother turning. The Multi Layer Wood Core works perfectly with this design and the wide dimensions to provide power and grip. The result is a stunningly stable, surprisingly versatile, freeride ski that excels off-piste and still performs well on piste.

Tester’s comments: Dave (Kensington store) ‘Great freeride ski. Even though this is a 100mm in the waist, it’s super agile and handles like an all-mountain ski.’ Features: P Cut Geometry, Fatty Base and Edge, Maple Macroblock, 4D Fibrecap Demo available Radius: 17.2m (179cm) Sidecut: 134/100/125 (179cm) Sizes: 172, 179, 186 Ski code 700053 Binding DIN: 3.5 to 12 Binding code 702053

Salomon Shogun + Salomon STH 12 £575

K2 COOMBAck + Tyrolia Peak 12 £465

The Shogun has returned unchanged after a sell-out debut season. Aimed at advanced and expert freeriders, it’s a smooth, powerful and grippy ski that deals with everything from resort groomers to backcountry jumps. The fat waist and long radius ensure stability and floatation in all conditions; a Rocker 350 tip adds manoeuvrability and ease-of-use. The full wood core uses bamboo stringers for added liveliness and slick edge changes, with a basalt layer for dampening and Pulse Pads to absorb shocks and improve grip. The edges are thickened and reinforced for added durability and the Ptex 4000 base is tough and fast.

The COOMBAck is designed for the adventure skier, someone who needs all-terrain performance for powder turns and grip on steep traverses, as well as being light enough for touring. All-Terrain Rocker provides camber for grip and response on firm snow, with extra lift at the tip for smoother turn initiation and better floatation. The ski is capped to save weight and has a flat tail for anchoring and easy skin application. A Snophobic topsheet repels snow to save weight, the Powder Tip uses a set-back contact point for improved stability, and the progressive sidecut combines 2 radii for easier turning and release. Sidecountry, backcountry or touring, the COOMBAck has the mix of power, stability and light weight to impress.

This is the ultimate all-terrain, all-condition ski for advanced and expert skiers. A Full Sensor Wood Core combines with dual titanal sheets to provide powerful control and outstanding edge hold, way above that of most fat skis. The 96mm waist is big enough for deep powder days and still easy to handle on firm snow, and the 20.3m radius delivers stability in all terrain. Power construction ensures race-like grip and precision with the durability needed to ski off-piste. It’s a remarkable ski built to be pushed everywhere, from ice to powder with all the bumps, slush and crud in between.

The ObSETHed now comes with more rocker and extra girth! At 117mm underfoot this ski is ready for some serious deep snow and with the massive lift generated by the Powder Rocker, nothing is going to make the tips dive. The directional and progressive sidecut ensures straight line stability and improved turn initiation in all conditions, with easy tail release in softer snow. Camber underfoot provides hard snow performance, ABS sidewalls deliver the grip needed for sketchy terrain, and the SchizoFrantic binding system adds unique versatility. Just as Seth wants it – for hard-charging big mountain shredders only.

K2 Silencer

For bindings see page 174-175

The shape of the Mod Structure is sculpted to distribute mass ensuring the smoothest ride. In both men’s and women’s skis, the Mod is thickest towards the centre of the ski insulating the skier from vibrations. This tapers towards the tip and tail minimising weight and making the skis easier to manoeuvre. The optimum location and thickness of mass is customised to best suit individual T:Nine skis. The location of the Mod Monic damper is the same for men’s and women’s models, but the amount of focussed mass is different, with T:Nine Mod Monics being significantly lighter.

Baseline technology blends camber with varying degrees of rocker. Certain skis require more or less of each, the use of different Baseline technology ensures K2 have a super versatile line up for all abilities and snow conditions. Speed Rocker – Designed for firmer snow, this slightly elevated tip and increased tip length provides effortless initiation and flawless transitions, while camber along the rest of the running length delivers precision, power and edge-hold. All-Terrain Rocker – The most versatile Baseline available. Featuring an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, and camber underfoot for power, energy and edge-hold in firmer conditions. Powder Rocker – Designed for deep snow. The tip has the most elevation and longest measurement of Rocker, offering skiers a ‘surfy’ feel with enhanced soft snow performance. The camber section still exists to ensure edge hold on firmer conditions. Jib Rocker – Designed for the terrain park. The elevated tip and tail, and zero camber underfoot, offers the best blend of playfulness for butters and surface tricks combined with increased pop for unmatched ollies.

technical features

K2 Kung Fujas + Marker Griffon SchizoFrantic £525 For advanced skiers the Kung Fujas is the most versatile BC ski available and K2 have made it even better! The waist is now 102mm for increased float when charging in powder, that’s big but not so big that it isn’t still totally comfortable boosting kickers in the park or sending-out rooster tails on piste. And extra rocker at the tip and tail has improved soft snow performance even further. The bi-directional sidecut remains for supreme stability switch and regular, as do ABS sidewalls for durability and good response. The excellent SchizoFrantic system ensures the perfect stance.

Wood Core All our K2 skis use wood cores. The men’s models generally use fir and aspen for the inherent strength, durability and energy. T:Nine skis use a combination of fir and spruce. Spruce is used as a lighter-weight alternative to solid fir.

Tester’s comments: Tom L (Castleford store) ‘Solid, stable and surprisingly agile. Can be used anywhere, any speed and on any snow. Awesome!’

SchizoFrantic Binding System

Features: All-Terrain Rocker, Torsion Box Construction, Sidewall Construction, SchizoFrantic binding system with inserts on ski Demo available Radius: 19m (179cm) Sidecut: 133/102/127 (179cm) Sizes: 169, 179, 189 Ski code 700026 Binding DIN: 4 to 12 Binding code 702026

Inserts on the ObSETHed, Kung Fujas and Revival allow for super fast mounting of the Marker SchizoFrantic binding, without the need for drilling. The increased surface area of the insert rings provides twice the pullout strength of standard screws, and the positioning allows for the binding to be mounted centrally for park or all the way back for powder and soft snow. Once positioned, the Schizo can still be adjusted up to 6cm along the ski so that the stance can easily be tuned further to different terrain and conditions.

Cap Construction Cap skis are built with a sophisticated molding process that envelops the core and internal materials with the top layer of the ski. Capped skis share the common characteristics of being very durable and lightweight. The construction process is nearly identical for an entry and expert level ski. What determines the characteristics of the ski are the variations in the layers of the core materials. For this reason, cap skis can be used for just about any type of skiing and performance level.

Line Sir Francis Bacon + Tyrolia Peak 12 £525 A few seasons ago people may have questioned the need for this ski, now the only question is... why don’t you have some?! Early Rise improves handling in soft snow with better float without shifting your balance, and a thinner core at the tip makes it lighter and reduces swing weight. Early taper eliminates drag and allows the tail to sit deeper in pow, the G Cut Geometry ensures easy handling, and a soft but very stable, symmetrical flex allows you ride everywhere. It’s the epitome of effortless and any powder skier with an open minded approach to style has to be on some!

Sidewall Construction

Tester’s comments: Marcin (Tower House store) ‘Felt effortless, just let the ski ride for you. Pick up some speed, jump in the powder and smile. I’m in love!’

For bindings see page 174-175

Unlike the cap construction, the contents of a sidewall ski are protected and sealed in by a vertical material on the perimeter of the ski that is separate and distinct from the top material. The sidewall material is placed directly above the edge for additional reinforcement and support. This type of construction tends to have a more precise transmission of power due to the vertical nature of the construction process.

Hybritech

Features: Early Rise, Early Taper, G Cut Geometry, Fatty Base and Edge, Maple Macroblock Demo available Radius: 18m (182cm) Sidecut: 142/115/139 (182cm) Sizes: 172, 182 Ski code 700052 Binding DIN: 3.5 to 12 Binding code 702052

Hybritech is a unique blend of sidewall and cap construction. The result is a combination of the accuracy and performance of sidewall with the lightweight characteristics and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.

Atomic Bent Chetler + Atomic FFG 14 Team £560 The Bent Chetler delivers the pop and grip you’d expect of a park ski with the float and flex of a powder model. Atomic’s Pop Rocker technology and some clever dimensions result in a rockered tip and tail with set back contact points, to provide easy turn initiation in any condition. Standard camber and a traditional sidecut underfoot provide the grip and energy for hard snow control; the Step Down Sidewalls add to the edge hold as well as saving weight. It has crud-punching power, variable-snow stability and the smoothness and energy to improve any day on snow.

Kerma Powdertrack £45 Powder skiers need poles with fat, powder baskets like the 80mm on the Powdertrack, as not every day is a powder day, it comes equipped with 50mm Race baskets too. The World Cup handle is grippy and comfortable and the 18mm 7075 aluminium shaft is stiff and strong.

Poles

technical features Handle Dual density handles (Salomon Arctic) tend to be more comfortable as they can feel slightly softer and normally grip better. Monomaterial handles will be cheaper but won’t feel as comfortable. Women’s specific poles sometimes use a smaller handle (K2 3 Karat).

Strap Cheaper poles will use a simple system of nylon strap and pull-through locking system (K2 3 Speed), this is easy to use and very effective. Wider straps may feel more comfortable (Salomon Patrol), though the very best versions will use padding and/or Velcro closure systems (the Notch Strike on the Scott RS-12).

Kerma Revel £25 Scott Voodoo £45

Scott MJ £36

A good looking and supportive leather strap plus a super-comfy handle are 2 obvious reasons to buy the Voodoo, but the main advantage is the massive 90mm basket, making this pole ideal for powder skiers. Handle: Notch Strike, dual density, black and white Strap: Leather Cuff, easy-adjust Velcro, black Shaft: 18mm S3 5086 aluminium Basket: Powder 90mm, black Tip: Ice, steel Colour: Black (900) Sizes: 115 - 135 Code 703004

The MJ is a ladies performance pole that keeps a classy look and feel. P-Core handle with a grippy thermoplastic rubber, FX 15x25 strap with increased rear width, and a tough S3 aluminium shaft. Handle: P-Core, dual density, grey and white Strap: FX 15x25, adjustable, grey Shaft: 18mm S3 5086 aluminium Basket: 3.6 Disc 58mm, black Tip: Ice, steel Colour: White (900) Sizes: 110 - 125 Code 703006

Kerma are a part of the Dynastar / Lange group of companies so you know that quality and design will be integral to their products. The Revel is a simple but very attractive pole, with a women’s specific handle, lightweight 16mm shaft and colour co-ordinated details. Handle: women’s specific, mono-material, white Strap: adjustable, white Shaft: 16mm 5086 Dural aluminium Basket: Course 51mm Tip: steel Colour: Silver (900) Sizes: 105 - 120 Code 703019

Shaft The shaft can be made from aluminium or a composite material. The higher the number of the aluminium the better grade, meaning it has a better strength to weight ratio (7075 on Scott Team Issue) but it will be more expensive. Some women’s specific poles will use a narrower diameter to reduce weight (16mm on the Kerma Revel). Composite shafts are lighter and narrower than aluminium. The strength on these can vary (a K2 3 Speed is exceptional value for a composite shaft, but not as strong as the Kerma Pro Carbon).

The Topaz matches Salomon’s ‘Touch’ range of skis, but that’s not the only reason to choose this pole. The 16mm 7075 aluminium shaft is light and strong, the women’s specific handle is comfortable and grippy, and the steel tip and 55mm basket suit a variety of terrain and conditions.

The 3 Speed has been one of our best selling poles for 5 seasons now, for the simple reason that it’s a composite pole under £30. The shaft is light, flexible and strong, the handle is grippy and comfortable and the 60mm basket suitable for a variety of terrain. Handle: rubber overmold, black Strap: adjustable, black Shaft: 16mm composite Basket: Hard Snow 60mm, black Tip: steel Colour: Black (900) Sizes: 110 - 130 Code 703008

Handle: rubber overmold, black Strap: adjustable, black Shaft: 16mm composite Basket: Hard Snow 60mm, black Tip: steel Colour: Black/Pink (900) Sizes: 105 - 125 Code 703010

Most tips will be made of steel to provide good ‘bite’ on hard snow and strength to withstand knocks and bangs. Carbon based tips are more expensive but will cut into firm snow exceptionally well.

The Patrol proved a super-popular choice last season and it’s obvious why – there’s a lot of pole for the money! Racing handles are comfortable and grippy, the 7075 aluminium shaft is strong and, best of all, it’s got 80mm baskets for the best floatation in soft snow.

technical features Basket Wider baskets will not sink in soft snow as much as a narrower one, so choose a pole with a big basket if you intend to ski off-piste (the 90mm Powder on the Scott Voodoo). Narrower baskets suit piste skiing and park use (the 60mm basket on the Line Dart). The Kerma Powdertrack comes with 2 sets of baskets so you can swap from piste to powder without compromising.

Ski Pole Sizing Position your elbow next to your side and bend your forearm 90° so that it is parallel to the ground. Take the ski pole and turn it upside down, putting the handle on the floor. With the ski pole vertical, position your hand under the basket. If it is the correct size your forearm will still be parallel to the ground.

How to prevent common boot problems Skiing and ski boots are unnatural for human physiology. We place our feet in a harsh environment and exert more stress through the action of skiing, it’s no wonder feet find it hard to adapt to this, and hurt! There are millions of variations in feet but a boot manufacturer has only 6 or 7 different shapes and volumes within their collection. Therefore we carry a large boot range, so we can offer different shapes and volumes in order to achieve the closest possible match between the boot and foot. From this initial fit we need to ensure the foot is stable and supported in a neutral position – for this reason we heavily recommend supportive footbeds for every boot we sell. They can and do make the difference between a boot that fits correctly, and a boot that doesn’t. Boot-fitting problems generally stem from the foot itself, not the boot. Footbeds eliminate a lot of these issues, dramatically improving the fit and skiing performance by supporting the foot structure. This helps muscles to relax and stops them tiring so quickly, meaning there’s less movement and rubbing caused by collapsing of the foot. We recommend Conform’able custom footbeds. They will provide the support and stability within the ski boot to enable your feet to adapt better to the alien environment in which they are placed. All our ski boot technicians are trained to make footbeds to a high standard so come and talk to us for more information.

Conform’able footbeds and how to prevent common boot problems 1

2

SORE SHINS Too much space around the lower leg will allow it to rock back and forth during flexion, losing contact with the tongue and banging back into it. Pronation naturally creates an inward rotation of the lower leg causing uneven pressure on the shin, during flexion this rubs the shin laterally on the tongue. Poor quality socks and hairy legs can exacerbate the problem. Footbeds will support and reduce the rotation. COLD / NUMB TOES Poor circulation and nerve pressure are to blame here. Good support from footbeds helps to improve circulation by spreading the pressure more evenly over the sole of the foot, allowing the muscles to relax and improving blood flow. Heated footbeds are available to further stimulate circulation to the toe ends. Numbness can be caused by the skeletal structure collapsing under pressure and nipping nerves. Support the bones with a footbed and relieve the pressure. Foot width can be an issue here so adaptations to the boot can help too.

3

CALF / ACHILLES PAIN Often caused by poor alignment or lack of balance, tightening and fatiguing the calf muscle. Tight or short Achilles tendons restrict ankle flex. Constant flexing pulls hard on the tendon creating a ‘hot spot’ of pain centrally in the lower calf, where the tendon joins the muscle (commonly seen in high heel wearers). Symptoms can be relieved and balance improved by supporting the foot and fitting a Conform’able heel lift to the footbeds. Regular stretching of the area is recommended.

4

METATARSALGIA Refers to pain in the ball of the foot and is often felt as a ‘burning sensation’. Poor balance or stance, tight Achilles or calf muscle, over-tightening boot buckles, a neuroma, over-pronation, these can all contribute to metatarsalgia. People with high or low arches tend to suffer more. It can be difficult to eliminate 100% but supporting the whole foot and creating a more balanced platform inside the boot with firmly constructed footbeds is the place to start.

5 6

PRESSURE POINTS Commonly seen on the ankle bones, heels, instep and the widest parts of the forefoot. Heel and instep pressure points can appear if the foot is moving backward and forward excessively while skiing, footbeds will prevent this movement. The most common pressure points are the inner ankle bone and little toe area along the 5th metatarsal. These are often experienced together due to the foot pronating excessively. It can be easily remedied with localised shell stretches and footbeds to support the foot.

7

ARCH PAIN Over-tightening boots that are too big usually leads to excessive downward pressure on the foot by the instep buckle. This squashes the foot, makes it pronate heavily and over-stretches the tendons underneath the arch. Other causes for this pain are simple foot fatigue and the more serious problem of plantar fasciitis, which is an inflammation or tearing of the plantar fascia tendon. Providing effective support with footbeds in a correctly sized boot eliminates the need for overtightening and provides fatigue-reducing support.

using the ellis brigham ski boot pages FIT: This is just a guide, only a proper fitting provides the information needed to select the perfect boot.

PRODUCT INFORMATION Shell: Polyurethane (PU) shells are firm and responsive, suiting better skiers. PU ether shells are slightly more performance-orientated than PU esther. Skiers using these types of boots are confident with their turns and want the boot to be precise and responsive. Polyolefin (PE or PP) shells are softer and more forgiving, better suited to novice skiers who do not want their ski boot to react to every single move they make. Skiers using these types of boots may not be perfectly balanced on their skis or entirely confident in every turn. Liner: All adult boots that Ellis Brigham stock use custom-molding foams. This means they can be heated in store to help the inner boot mold better to individual foot shapes. This is not a replacement for ‘wearing a boot in’. More performance-orientated liners have denser, firmer foams that take longer to mold to individual foot shapes. They last longer, give a positive foot hold, and feel precise. They are closer fitting and feature more exact pre-molded shaping. Comfort-orientated liners have softer foams and extra space in them. This results in a more immediate sense of molding, though the liner won’t hold the foot as closely or tightly. Flex: This relates to how much effort it takes to bend (flex) the boot forward. Boots with high flex numbers are much stiffer, meaning they are suited to skiers with all or some of these characteristics: fast and aggressive style, better skilled, or heavier weight. They feel very precise, driving skis extremely efficiently. Softer flexing boots perform very well at slower and medium speeds, they make it easy to control skis, and are comfortable to use. Last width: The width of the boot at its widest point, across the forefoot area. ‘Last’ is a term for the foot-shaped form around which the ski boot is designed. The stated size relates to a 26.5cm ski boot. Velcro strap: Also known as a power strap. They help close the boot and keep the shin in good contact with the tongue of the liner. Generally, the bigger the strap the better it is at retaining the leg. Therefore, it takes more effort to use the boot, which will suit advanced skiers better.

ELLIS BRIGHAM SUREFIT GUARANTEE As we recognise that every foot is unique, we also recognise the need for unique ski boots. To achieve this, we provide free labour for customisation; whether it’s the day you buy the boots, after you have skied them the first time, or three years down the line. This free service includes stretching, grinding, and modifications such as softening or stiffening. We want you to be happy with your ski boots, so we will always try to remedy any problems you may encounter. Very often, this will be resolved by a simple stretch or grind to the ski boot to slightly alter the shape; in all cases we will expect good quality ski socks and supportive footbeds to be used. Should we not be able to provide a satisfactory fit, then, providing the ski boots have been worn for less than two weeks (wear and tear will be taken into account), correct socks and supportive footbeds have been used, and there is a proof of purchase (to show the boots were bought from Ellis Brigham in the preceding 18 months), we will issue a credit note for 70% of the value paid. Please note this guarantee does not apply to sale boots. Our guarantee is offered in addition to your statutory rights, and it is dependent on our advice being accepted during fitting. For further information, terms and conditions contact customer.services@ellis-brigham.com.

ELLIS BRIGHAM SUREFIT PROGRAMME All the staff in our ski hardware departments are passionate about wintersports. This means they have a desire to see you with the correct products, and the enthusiasm for what they are doing will make your time spent in the shop more enjoyable. This interest in skiing is not enough on its own though. That’s why Ellis Brigham provide what we strongly believe is the most comprehensive training programme in the UK for ski hardware technicians, involving seminars, coursework, practicals, and one-to-one coaching. As a result, we have a team of committed and knowledgeable staff. They will ensure that the service and care you receive, in any Ellis Brigham store, is of the highest quality.

Canting: Really this is cuff alignment. It is a way of adjusting the cuff (the leg) of the boot in relation to the lower shell (the foot) of the boot. It allows the cuff to better match the angle of the skier’s leg in relation to their foot. Usually double canting enables more movement than a boot with single canting. Features: These are features we have highlighted to help distinguish between different ranges and models. Refer to the branded ‘feature’ boxes for explanations.

PERFORMANCE INDICATOR This is a guide to show how the boot will perform and what to expect of the overall fit. Graded as a consistent progression from Leisure through Sport to Performance. LEISURE These boots offer extra space and a higher content of softer plastic. The inner boot will also use less dense foams. The result is a less precise but more forgiving boot. Good quality, thin ski socks need to be worn and good footbeds dramatically improve the fit. SPORT A great compromise between comfort and performance. The fit is close and the materials used supply plenty of support, the liner is made of firmer foams to ensure an even, all-over pressure. Good footbeds are essential for obtaining the best balance between comfort and performance. PERFORMANCE Control and precision are the most important elements, meaning less volume, a firmer fit and stiffer plastics. Good footbeds are essential to obtain the maximum comfort from a boot that is designed with other factors as a priority.

Conventional ski boots lock the natural foot movements in the sensitive forefoot region. Hawx boots free your forefoot by combining soft elastic thermo plastic (i-Flex) with the rigid shell material, allowing the boot to flex in your foot’s natural sweet spot while still retaining lateral and torsional stability.

Rotated / Offset Shell Hawx, M boots and the new Live Fit range are offset to the lateral (outside) side by 1mm, making the boot feel more precise and edge changes even simpler. They also feature a 3° external shell rotation to reduce strain on the lower joints with a more comfortable stance.

Adaptive Fit System The large, rear spoiler can be easily adjusted to fit various sizes of calf muscle, ensuring maximum comfort. The boot board can also be adapted via a dial set in the heel, meaning the ‘ramp angles’ can be altered for tuning of ‘fore/aft’ balance.

ASY Fit Liner ASY Fit liners are designed to perfectly complement your foot working within the shell. Each ASY liner has asymmetrical properties: a Medial Control Face on the ‘inside edge’ of the liner offers more grip and feel for maximum energy transfer, and a perforated Lateral Recovery Face on the ‘outside edge’ to cushion and absorb, easing pressure on the sensitive outside of the foot.

Live Fit Convenience and comfort, without sacrificing fit. Asymmetrical elastic zones in the shell surround the forefoot, instantly adapting to the width of the foot inside. A hard plastic skeleton frame guarantees good energy transmission and support. 2 oversized buckles, a massive powerstrap and ASY liners with advanced heel retention, ensure the foothold of a 4buckle boot.

AirShell The construction of most ski boots involves 2 main components, the shell and the liner. Tecnica have developed a third element, the AirShell system. The result is ‘fit on demand’. Positioned between the shell and the liner the AirShell is made up of 2 independent zones: 1 at the rearfoot and 1 at the forefoot. These can be inflated/deflated via small pumps located on the cuff, maximising fit and personalisation, and increasing performance and comfort.

Salomon Features 3D Shock Absorption A soft EVA highback is used for cushioning backseat landings. A thick high density PU foam absorbs shocks under the heel. High density foam in the tongue cushions the shin on big kickers. A massive 55mm strap keeps the tongue close to the leg, reducing ‘shin bang’.

Soft Toe Insert The toe area on the shell uses a flexible, soft plastic to allow for increased deformation, reducing toe bang and improving over-all comfort.

Back Bone Provides increased power for when skiers are in a rear position while coming out of the turn, extra support to the spine of the boot, and improves the rebound.

Custom Shell The forefoot area of the ski boot is critical to how well the boot fits. Too little space and the metatarsals will be squeezed causing pain, too much space and there’ll be no control over the skis. The right amount and the boot will be comfortable as well as precise and sensitive. To achieve this Salomon use a material called Kaprolene on the panels either side of the forefoot. The plastic shell of the boot is heated and these panels soften considerably. The foot is placed inside the shell with the inner boot added, then, as the panels cool, they mold to the shape of the foot. Once cooled the Kaprolene panels become as hard as the rest of the boot, just with the customised shape.

Advanced Shell Technology – Spaceframe Shell Profile The plastic is graduated so it is thickest where most strength is needed, for power and control, and thinnest where comfort is important. The result is a precise, anatomical fit and one of the most sensitive shells on the market.

page190

Advanced Shell Technology – Energyzer The shell is reinforced with a stiff and dynamic Energyzer for a progressive and responsive flex.

Advanced Shell Technology – 2nd Skin Shell Thin plastics and closer, more anatomical shapes are used. Precision and sensitivity are increased, weight is decreased.

3D Buckle / Articulated Buckle The 3D buckle has 3 positions for maximum customisation. The articulated buckle includes sophisticated hinging to improve pressure spread.

Biovent Liners Salomon’s Custom Fit liners add a new level of breathability. The 1st Skin Mesh on the inside face of the liner efficiently extracts moisture from your socks. The Comfort Foam and Custom Fit Foam use microperforations to transfer water. A 3D Mesh ventilates the liner using evacuation channels, and the outer layer of the liner insulates against cold. The result? Dryer, warmer, more comfortable feet.

Release Cuff System A V-shaped lower shell joins the upper cuff with a magnesium backbone release system, allowing more movement and easier walking. The locking system ensures alpine performance is not affected.

A relaxed stance and angles make freestyle more comfortable and switch easier. The Quiklace CF Sport liner holds the foot, and the 100 flex PU shell with AST is precise and responsive. But shock absorption is where it rules, with pads under the heel, at the cuff and on the tongue, plus the innovative Soft Toe Inserts to reduce toe bang. Shell: mono-material PU esther shell and mono-material polyolefin (PP) cuff Liner: My Custom Fit Sport with Quiklace Flex: 100 Last width: 104mm Velcro strap: 55mm Canting: none Features: Soft Toe Insert, Advanced Shell Technology, 3D Shock Absorption Sizes: 25.0-29.0 (full sizes only) Code 701004

Full Tilt Tongue The ribbed external tongue is independent of the shell. This eliminates dead spots and distortion to give superior control and fit. Big landings and variable terrain are absorbed better as the boot progressively flexes with the ankle and leg.

Cable Buckles Cable buckle system works with the tongue to eliminate dead spots and ensure a natural, progressive forward flex. Includes a tool-less macro adjustment.

Active Rubber Footboard A rubber, running shoe-style footboard for impact and vibration absorption.

Low Ride Sole Lowest height and least ramp angle of any ‘production model’ boot for enhanced feel of the snow and an optimal athletic position.

Rigid Cuff FT use the world’s stiffest ‘production model’ cuff, in the lateral and rear direction. This enhances ease of carving by rolling the ski over rather than sliding, and gives extreme power transfer and responsiveness edge-to-edge.

features Fischer, Lange and Dalbello Features

Features: See page 190 for full description

Fischer – Soma-Tec

Salomon Impact 8 CS £260

Lange – Control Fit Technology The design of the shell is based on data generated from foot scanning systems. This creates a boot that has an anatomically contoured heel cap for better foot retention, a tapered mid-foot transition that holds the navicular and cuboid without applying too much pressure or being too loose. It also has an asymmetrical toe box that provides the proper volume to comfortably fit the toes without compromising control.

Dalbello – Cabrio Technology

Features: See page 192 for full description

A 3-piece shell assembly (shell, cuff and tongue) secure the foot with outstanding heel control, minimum shell distortion during flex for improved control, and a low cuff hinge that follows the natural movement of the leg throughout flex.

Features: See page 184 for full description

Fit: medium fit all over, good hold, customisable forefoot, average to narrow cuff Aimed at a wide variety of skiers, from good intermediates to advanced, the Impact 8 appeals with its mix of comfort, performance and customisation options. The shell is PU for precision and power, with a 100 flex that is supportive but not over-stiff. The CF Sport liner can be heat fitted and the CS inserts allow the plastic of the boot to be molded. AST produces a responsive shell, and features like 3D buckle, adjustable spoiler/leg clips allow for extra personalisation. Shell: bi-material PU ether/esther shell and cuff Liner: My Custom Fit Sport Flex: 100 Last width: 100-106mm Velcro strap: 35mm Canting: single Features: Custom Shell, Advanced Shell Technology, 3D Buckle Sizes: 24.5-29.0, 30.0, 31.5 Code 701003

Soma-Tec enables optimum power transfer and comfortable, dynamic edge changing. There is also less strain placed on the joints. In their natural, relaxed position, your feet form a Vshape. In this stance the knees remain parallel when flexed. Fischer took these anatomical facts into account when developing the Soma-Tec boot. The feet remain relaxed in their natural Vposition, so knee and ankle joints no longer have to be twisted inward. At the same time, edge switching is made a lot easier, the skier’s centre of gravity is precisely on the centre axis of the ski and energy is transmitted to the ski more accurately.

Head Vector 100 £250

Lange RX 100 £260

Fit: average to high volume midfoot and forefoot, medium rearfoot, good heel hold Heavy or stronger intermediate or advanced skiers who want a performance boot with good foot hold and a wider fit, must consider the Vector. Even though it offers more volume than other options it still has the heel retention needed to control skis at speed. The tri-injected PU shell is precise and responsive, the100 flex is supportive and powerful, and features like the double canting, rear support tuning and excellent HeatFit liner make it great value for money. Shell: PU ether shell and polyolefin (PP) cuff Liner: HeatFit with flex toes Flex: 100-90 Last width: 103mm Velcro strap: 40mm Canting: double Features: Supermacro Ratchet Sizes: 25.5-29.0 Code 701006

Fit: medium volume, medium to narrow heel, comfy toebox Following the success of the Blaster range, Lange have based the RX 100 on the same Control Fit Technology, the main differences are that it has less volume and a stiffer flex. The result is a powerful, close fit that grips the foot well, minus the crushing pressure points often associated with tighter boots. The quality Thermo Fit liner is custom molded, the 100 flex is firm and supportive, and there’s plenty of adjustment on the cuff to suit a variety of lower leg shapes. Shell: PU ether shell and PU esther cuff Liner: Thermo Fit 1 Flex: 100 Last width: 100mm Velcro strap: 34mm Canting: single Features: Control Fit Technology Sizes: 25.5-29.0 Code 701017

The lightweight, ultra compact Skiweb attaches around either side of the bindings to make carrying skis easy. The strap is worn over the shoulder. Comfortable to use, packs away super-small to sit in your pocket, and a doddle to put on. Colour: Blue code 710028

These Cat Tracks are designed to make the awkward process of walking in ski boots that little bit easier.

Backcountry Over the next 6 pages you’ll find the latest equipment to make your time spent in the backcountry safer, easier and, ultimately, more enjoyable. We’ve got ultra-light bindings, innovative transceivers, fat powder skis, technical all-terrain boots and so much more. Technical advances mean lighter, better ski equipment, opening different areas of the mountain and new experiences to more skiers. Wide skis, stronger, lighter boots and increasingly effective releasable bindings make areas beyond conventional piste skiing ever more accessible. From lift-accessed powder turns to in-resort backcountry, single day powder missions and traditional multi-day tours, many skiers are exploring new terrain. And, as the numbers of people enjoying the backcountry increases so does the range of new, exciting equipment. For 2010/2011, as well as expanding our range of products, we have also increased the number of Ellis Brigham Backcountry Centre locations to cover Scotland, the North of England and South of England, with centres in Glasgow, Manchester and in 2 London stores.

One of the greatest risks we face when skiing off piste or out in the backcountry is that posed by avalanche. The majority of avalanche victims are caught in avalanches that have been triggered by themselves or their companions. Statistics show that in the event of an avalanche burial, the buried victim’s greatest chance of survival is to be located and uncovered within 15 minutes. With the average call out time for an official search and rescue team to arrive on location and begin searching at around 30 to 40 minutes it is apparent that the avalanche victim’s greatest chance of survival is through an efficient and rapid search and rescue operation provided by the victim’s properly equipped and prepared companions on location. The minimum requirements for skiing in the backcountry are a transceiver, shovel and probe. There are some scary statistics that show search and rescue times for locating and uncovering an avalanche victim under 1 meter of snow by teams with: A. Only a transceiver – 60 plus minutes B. A transceiver and a shovel – 26 minutes C. Transceiver and probe – 50 minutes D. Transceiver, shovel and probe – 16 minutes From this you can see just how important the magic 3 items are. Don’t venture out there without them! Remember that backcountry areas are not patrolled and you need to know how long it will take you get to where you want to go and how long it will take you to get back. Make sure you know what time the last lift of the day runs in case you need to use it to get back to your resort. • Always check the current/latest weather conditions. • Never ski/board backcountry if you are not accomplished at your sport. • Never venture backcountry if you have no experience of understanding mountain conditions and recognising avalanche risk. • Never venture off piste or backcountry on your own. • Always use a guide or someone with exceptional knowledge of the area. • Always carry and know how to use an avalanche transceiver, probe, shovel and other essential survival equipment. Lastly, remember to give an indication of where you are intending to board/ski, to your rep, friends or somebody who will be able to raise an alarm should you fail to return.
