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 vibrant community that serves as a constant reminder that the Old West is alive and well. Whether you're stepping foot into a local pub, one of the charming boutiques, or stepping off the gondola, the reception is the same: genuine and warm. With 165 trails, 3,668 vertical feet, and nearly 3,000 acres of terrain, Steamboat’s six peaks are filled with worldclass groomed cruisers, bumps, steeps, meadows, legendary trees and four Terrain Parks. Our obsession with skiing and snowboarding is something we like to share. Known around the globe for the deep, untouched powder that collects between the tall aspen and evergreens, It’s so different that the phrase Champagne Powder® snow was coined right here to describe it. And with more than 10 metres of the deep stuff annually, Steamboat never has to worry about fresh powder. After a day on the mountain, take a dip in the Hot Springs and you’ll think you’ve found the fountain of youth. Enjoy a stroll down Lincoln Avenue where you’re sure to feel the essence of Steamboat’s down-home western hospitality. Steamboat also boasts a variety of lodging options and more than 100 bars and restaurants, as well as a great variety of off-slope activities. From a pioneering frontier community, Steamboat has grown into a world-class resort, and having sent more athletes to the winter Olympics than any other town in America, has earned the moniker Ski Town, U.S.A.® To get a face-full of Champagne Powder snow, a boatload of western hospitality and fantastic holiday packages, visit steamboat.com or call UK toll-free, 0808-101-3798.

TRY-BEFORE-YOU-BUY IN THE UK Testing skis in the UK can be a useful way to make decisions before purchasing and at Ellis Brigham we have fleets of test skis at 4 of the UK’s best indoor snow slopes. Our stores at Braehead, Castleford, Milton Keynes and Tamworth carry models from Armada, Atomic, Blizzard, Dynastar, Head, K2, Line, Movement, Rossignol, Salomon, Scott and Völkl. Our test skis are available for customers to take on the slope and try for themselves, and it could hardly be easier to arrange. Call the store at your chosen location to confirm the models you would like to demo and then arrange your own slope time to try the skis during normal shop hours. Unlike other retailers, there is no charge for you to borrow the equipment, and we positively encourage you to try more than one model. The staff in store can advise on exactly what to take and the best options to compare with. Braehead/Glasgow 0141 8854700 Castleford/Leeds 01977 522040 Milton Keynes 01908 609122 Tamworth 01827 59047 Not only do we offer testing during normal shop hours, we also have a comprehensive programme of out-of-hours testing and multi-brand events such as the November Big Ski national ski test tour. No one else in the UK is as dedicated to providing such a testing programme. For further information on dates of evening testing sessions and about events, please contact your nearest slope store or log onto the Ellis Brigham website.

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.

Men’s Collection 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.

Icebreaker Categories Sport 320 – Winter Sports Icebreaker 320 is a warm, low bulk, breathable midlayer for winter sports. These smart and athletic styles insulate effectively in cool to freezing conditions and are ideal worn beneath a shell on high-energy ski runs.

Bodyfit 260 – Midweight Bodyfit 260 weight is the warmest and most breathable performance base layer in the world. After a month of keeping you toasty and warm, it still won’t hold odour or lose its shape. For cold to very cold conditions. Ideal for all winter sports.

GT260 – Active This pinnacle sports collection combines merino wool with Lycra. GT260 styles deliver quick-dry times and odour-resistance together with an incredible fit for active use.

HyActive™ Light 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.

Skins are body-moulded 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.

SNOW ESSENTIALS

HELMETS

Helmets have become a regular part of equipment for the majority of skiers and as their acceptance has grown, improvements in design keep coming. The ‘cannon ball look’ disappeared years ago, as did the feeling of sticking your head in a vice! Helmets now are well ventilated, surprisingly light, extremely comfortable and they make use of many clever custom-fitting procedures. If you haven’t tried a new helmet on for a few years, it’s time you did! They may not be the answer for everybody or provide unlimited protection but anyone who wants to maximise their safety on the hill should consider one. They can make a difference and for that reason we encourage their use. 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. Salomon Icon Custom Air £100

Salomon Pearl Origins £70

The women’s specific Icon Custom Air delivers fit, comfort and performance. The adjustable fit system tailors the size to perfectly match your head, controllable venting manages the internal temperature and the in-mould construction keeps the weight down and comfort levels up.

The Pearl Origins represents outstanding value for money without any concession on comfort, fit or performance. Ample venting regulates the temperature, inmould construction keeps the weight down and features such as faux fur and a removable liner make this a great helmet to own.

Trying On When you try 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, make sure the back of the helmet does not press the back of your neck. The helmet should fit snugly, when shaking your head it should not move around. It may be worth trying the helmet with one of your favourite pairs of goggles to make sure they fit well together.

Construction

Sizing

In-mould Construction In-mould 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.

Apart from the actual sizing, each brand of helmet will have slightly different shapes, so it is worth trying a few different makes on to see which best fits your own head shape. 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.

Hard Shell 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 – In Form Fit System The In Form 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 adjustment for enhanced comfort and stability. Giro helmets with the In Form fit system cover a much larger range of head sizes than a traditional helmet size.

Venting

Sizing – Salomon Custom Air Fit A widespread, slim air pad sits at the rear and sides of the helmet, with a small pump built into the soft foam lining at the back of the neck. The fit of the helmet can be fine-tuned by regulating how much air is in the pad.

More vents will normally equal more powerful cooling, but you should also consider whether the vents can be ‘unplugged’ or, if there is rider controlled venting that can be adjusted while skiing so you don’t have to take the helmet off.

SKI TESTING Ski testing is a part of the job that is greatly anticipated, whether it’s a buying trip to try skis with a view to how they perform, or a training trip for staff to better understand the latest models. All the trips are fun, but they all have a serious reason – with so many brands and styles available, it is how we ensure only the very best skis make it onto the pages of this catalogue and into our stores. The test team is made up of more than 20 Ellis Brigham staff who work with skis and boots every day. It covers various abilities and styles of skiing. This season the testing started in January and involved trips to St Cristoph in Austria and Whistler, Canada. By March we were in Austria again at the SIGB ski test in Kuhtai, and April took us back there for a third visit. This time it was our own staff training at the Stubai Glacier. Ski Industries of Great Britain Ski Test, Kuhtai, Austria, March The SIGB test brings together UK retailers, ski brands and snow media for 5 days of organised testing. It’s the chance to try skis from different brands, back-to-back, and see exactly what skis should be in the range for 2012/13. Early March provided plenty of new snow with fresh tracks off-piste, as well as beautifully prepared pistes. Every ski was put through its paces by our experienced team of testers. Park skis hit up the kickers, rails and pipes; piste skis put together turn after turn; fat skis got the necessary soft snow and all mountain skis went everywhere. Only skis with unanimous approval made it through to our 2012/13 range.

Ellis Brigham Staff Training Ski Test, Stubai, Austria, April Ski testing to decide which skis to stock is important, but at Ellis Brigham we go one step further. In April we took 18 staff members to Austria to test all the new season's kit. The Tirol region is beautiful at any time of the year, but spring is especially striking with longer days, plenty of snow and warmer temperatures that see the valleys burst into life. This chance to test on snow means the staff know from personal experience how every ski performs. As with Kuhtai in March, the weather delivered fantastic conditions with fresh snow and blue skies. Once again, every ski had the right snow and terrain to really test its capability. But the training didn’t stop with the last lift, as back at the Hotel Medrazerhof (www.Medrazerhof.at) test results were compared and discussed. Staff from shops all around the country attended, and you can read their feedback in the tester’s comments at the end of every ski review on the following pages. Or visit the Ellis Brigham website for more detailed information from every tester and also the video reviews of skis from the trip.

Our testing doesn’t stop there either. In September we carry out staff training on snow at the indoor snow slopes, and all through the year we conduct demo sessions for customers. The result of all this skiing means that when you visit an Ellis Brigham store you can be sure our range is the best in the UK and the advice, based on experience, is comprehensive and right for you.

THREE STEPS TO BUYING SKIS We’re often asked what the ultimate ski is, the truth is that no one ski can be the best overall and appeal to every skier. The best ski is the one most suited to your ability and the kind of terrain you intend to ride. It’s a simple matter of balancing the shape, flex and characteristics to your requirements. To make this straightforward we sort the skis based on ability and shape, and because we’ve only selected models that we know are the best in their categories, you can be sure of making a great choice. Everybody has their own ultimate ski and picking this perfect pair is as easy as 1-2-3. Step 1 – Skier ability To maximise your time on snow it’s important to match ability with the characteristics of the ski. This way your equipment will help you ski better, improve faster and enjoy yourself more. Ability Indicator Chart

To help identify skis we have graded them in a constant progression from Novice to Expert.

Novice Skiers tackling green and blue runs confidently, wanting to move onto more demanding terrain. While their technique is good on easier terrain and at slower speeds, bumps and icy or steeper runs are attempted with caution. Skis in this category have soft tips and tails, so they initiate turns smoothly and easily. Sidecuts* are designed to be helpful. Camber profiles* use standard camber for grip and control, with only small amounts of tip rocker for ease of turning. They are forgiving skis that will boost confidence and aid progression.

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 pisteorientated environment up to big mountain and pure powder conditions.

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

all mountain Carve Built with narrower waists for quick edge changes and often with a shorter turn radius for tighter, faster carves; traditional cambers provide energy and grip. They’re perfect for blasting around the pistes and carving up the groomed snow.

Intermediate Stronger skiers with the confidence to tackle reds and attempt easy blacks and some ungroomed snow, while still working on their technique. Bumps and steep runs can affect their fluidity; off-piste is a mystery to be cracked. These skis are torsionally stiffer to provide grip at faster speeds; sidecuts* are more targeted to end-users, often deeper with a shorter radius* on the piste-orientated skis. Camber profiles* use standard camber underfoot for good grip, all mountain category skis use tip rocker to aid control in softer snow. Advanced Good skiers with all round skills to tackle most of the mountain, with solid technique in nearly every condition and slope. Shapes and designs are more specific to end-users and have associated increases in performance. Profiles* vary radically as do sidecuts* and radii*. Skis in this category are stiffer, with excellent stability and grip at speed; they’re also less forgiving. Expert Top-level skiers, professionals, committed seasonnaires, instructors, ex-racers. These are specific-usage skis for those at the top of the ability level. Shapes, dimensions and profiles vary according to the terrain they are used in, leading to huge differences between skis. All models offer the very best performance. All Mountain Can be a combination of dimensions and designs, resulting in very different models. Waists, radii, and camber profiles vary radically. These are goanywhere do-anything skis to find challenges on- and off-piste. Whilst some models may be more piste or soft snow focused, they all work in every condition. Freeride Typically with a longer radius and always with wider dimensions. Big waists ensure maximum floatation; reverse cambers plus interesting profiles and shapes dramatically improve handling in soft snow. They’re built for powder, steeps, bowls and trees. Freestyle Backcountry Twin tips with super-wide waists. Rocker technology, cutting edge shapes and soft flexes improve powder riding. Work equally well as dedicated powder skis or soft-snow freestyle options. Freestyle Twin tipped skis with waists of 80-90mm and softer flexing than similarly priced piste models. Tips and tails are more forgiving; camber profiles can include lots of rocker. Freestyle skis are about freedom of expression and skiing in any environment. Park Good ‘pop’ and more flex at the tip and tail for buttering/pressing. Switch riding is improved with more symmetrical cores and sidecuts.

Step 3 – Selecting the correct size of ski The size of the ski you need is dependent on a combination of factors such as weight, ability, flex, shape and the intended use. As a rough guide use the following: Piste 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. Freeride Forehead to over head height. Go ‘as big as you can handle’ for maximum floatation. Freestyle Backcountry Top of head and way beyond. The bigger the ski the better the floatation. 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. For a full explanation of how weight, ability and flex can affect size selection please visit www.ellis-brigham.com

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!

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, go bigger if you want the very best stability for landing and jumping.

ALL MOUNTAIN CARVE Dynastar Reveal XP + Xpress 10 £290 Where’s it going to be skied? Green, blue and occasional red runs. The 73mm waist is narrow enough to easily swap edges and feel nimble on groomed snow, yet wide enough to feel stable and supportive even when the pistes become chopped up. The wood core adds energy and life to the performance on marked trails. Who’s going to use it? The combination of 73mm waist, 13m radius and an all mountain tip and tail rocker means the Reveal is simple to ski, with effortless turn initiation and predictable handling. This excellent level of control makes it ideal for early intermediate skiers still working on their turns and confidence. Tester’s comments: Magda (Tower House) ‘Stable at every speed and easy to control. You don’t have to put a lot of energy in to have fun and enjoy it.’ Demo available Radius: 13m (158cm) Sidecut: 124/73/100 (158cm) Sizes: 143, 148, 153, 158 Binding DIN: 2.5 to 10 Ski code 700250 Binding code 702250

ALL MOUNTAIN CARVE SKIS Novice – Intermediate

Skis with narrower waists and often a shorter turn radius to deliver faster edge changes and easier carving on firm snow. Ski flex is relatively soft for ease of use at medium and slower speeds.

*JARGON BUSTER 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. Typically, skis designed for piste skiing have a short radius of 10 to 15m, so they initiate a turn and carve easily. Skis designed for maximum off-piste have a 22m+ radius, which makes them feel very stable. Freeride and all mountain skis are ‘somewhere in between’ as they need to function both on- and off-piste.

Blizzard Viva 7.4 IQ

Rossignol Attraxion 1

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 creates a ski with a small radius. This generally applies to pisteorientated skis so that they carve turns easily. Skis with shallow sidecuts have a larger radius for improved stability, better suiting ungroomed terrain. Most sidecut information will be given as 3 dimensions, though more recently some manufacturers have begun radically altering tip and/or tail shapes and will list the sidecuts as 4 or 5 dimensions. Skis that use these 4- or 5-point sidecuts will have tips that look longer and also possibly tails that are longer too (in the case of a 5-point sidecut). This effectively moves the wider points of the ski nearer the ski’s centre and helps with turn initiation and general manoeuvrability in ungroomed snow.

Dynastar Reveal XP

Sidecut/Shape

Camber Profiles Traditionally the camber refers to the arch of a ski when it is placed base down, the tip and tails touching the surface and the centre elevated. As the ski has weight applied, it flattens and the pressure is spread evenly along its length. When the pressure is released the ski returns to its camber shape, adding rebound/energy to the end of a turn. This type of camber is often referred to as traditional or standard camber. Design changes have lead to the use of reverse camber or rocker skis, where the ski arches upwards so the middle of the ski is lower than the tips and tail. This creates a ski with smooth handling in soft snow and excellent floatation. By combining elements of rocker and traditional camber, designers can create many different profiles. Standard camber underfoot for grip, rocker at the tip for improved floatation and handling, the amounts of each are adjusted according to the type of ski.

see our full range online www.ellis-brigham.com

Where’s it going to be skied? Groomed runs, mainly blue and red and usually at medium speeds, but it’s so easy to steer and control that it will happily go faster or slower. The camber underfoot delivers good grip and energy on firm snow. Who’s going to use it? Skiers who want a fun, easy ski that will encourage them to improve, and not be difficult to use. The concave IPS H shape is thicker at the sidewalls for better grip and shallower in the centre to save weight. The Oversized Sidecut ensures clean carving and smooth turns. Tester’s comments: Katie (Tower House) ‘Best in category (and I tested a lot of comparable skis) – easy to ski, smooth when slow but still pretty good at high speed.’ Demo available Radius: 13.1m (154cm) Sidecut: 120/72/100 (154cm) Sizes: 146, 154, 162 Binding DIN: 2.5 to 10 Ski code 700268 Binding code 702268

Blizzard Viva 7.4 IQ + IQ LC 10 Viva £350 Where’s it going to be skied? The Viva 7.4 encourages skiers to tackle blue and red runs with more confidence, and to venture onto black runs and ski them smoothly with style. The powerful construction of the IQ system ensures it isn’t scared of speed. The 74mm waist and the nose rocker provide versatility to ski more than just pistes. Who’s going to use it? The 7.4 packs a surprising amount of performance. Sidewalls underfoot improve edge hold and the wood core adds energy. It’s light, responsive and packed with grip, making it perfect for fast improving intermediates and lighter, or less aggressive, advanced skiers. Tester’s comments: Magda (Tower House) ‘Balanced and smooth, quick from edge-to-edge and grippy on piste. Turn initiation is easy and control is good.’ Demo available Radius: 13m (156cm) Sidecut: 119/74/102 (156cm) Sizes: 142, 149, 156, 163 Binding DIN: 3 to 10 Ski code 700255 Binding code 702255

WOMEN’S SKIS

ALL MOUNTAIN SKIS Intermediate – Advanced

Can be a combination of dimensions and profiles, resulting in very different models. Camber and/or tip shape is altered to improve soft snow performance. These are go-anywhere do-anything skis to find challenges on- and off-piste.

What built the brand then, still exists today. The same degree of commitment, desire, and flat out addiction to skiing and the lifestyle drives K2 and their athletes to keep pushing the limits of our sport. Just as Bill and Don K did 50 years ago, throwing caution to the wind, is what K2 do. Whether it’s developing products that seem a bit far-fetched, to not following the status quo in anything, the spirit of K2 will continue to be anything but predictable. It all began in the ’60’s – Using an innovative fiberglass wrap, a similar process Bill K. used to construct his veterinary cages, the first skis were created in his garage on Vashon Island in Washington. The skis worked and Bill started selling K2 skis in 1962. During those early years the K2 Holiday was introduced and the world’s first mogul ski, the Winter Heat. These skis helped to set the tone for the brand’s unique approach from the very beginning. 70’s – K2 started to invest heavily into racing, while at the same time pioneering the emerging freestyle and recreation markets with shorter skis. While K2 athletes won titles on the World Cup and Pro Tour on K2 Comp skis, the freestyle movement was taking off. K2 saw the potential and was there to support and document the scene through a series of movies, most notably The Performers. With the 70’s came the introduction of the Cheeseburger/Cheeseburger Deluxe and Bermuda Shorts, pushing the boundaries of freestyle and recreation skiing.

page 152

90’s – The boom of ‘extreme’ hits and the launch of the legendary K2 Extreme, the first adventureorientated high performance ski. K2 starts to experiment by adding a deeper sidecut to skis, becoming the first company to fully embrace the sidecut revolution. From the Velocity to the ski that made skiing easier for everyone, the K2 Four, K2 shifted the paradigm in ski design. K2’s first fat ski, the Big Kahuna, was introduced and later the Xplorer quickly proved that wider is better. A new generation of athletes emerged, and the world’s first modern twin tip, the Poacher, gave birth to a new era. To celebrate K2 launched the industry’s first pro model, the Morrison. 00’s – A flurry of innovations hits the market. K2 introduces the MOD damping system, the MOD X and MOD X Pro take all mountain skiing to new levels. The industry’s first collection of women’s specific skis is launched with the help of the K2 Alliance and the T:Nine series sets the tone for women skiers everywhere. Then, a guy named McConkey changed skiing forever with the introduction of Rocker technology, a new vision in modern ski design. It’s been 50 long beautiful years of serious fun.

K2 founders and passionate skiers Bill and Don Kirschner (thus the name K2) could have led a quiet life producing veterinary cages. Instead, they spat in the face of conventional wisdom and followed their dream to build skis. So they bent steel, shaped cores, applied fiberglass, and through pure commitment, guts and determination built a ski brand out of their garage.

K2 SuperFree

K2 started out 50 years ago by two people – who made animal cages in a garage, on a small island in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. A fitting and eccentric beginning which set the tone for a brand that would remain as unexpected and unconventional as its origins for the next half century.

80’s – From Olympic medals to the birth of extreme, K2 was developing product on the front lines. The legendary VO Slalom won Olympic and World Cup medals and cemented K2 as a highperformance ski company. The developments in the 80’s not only pushed race, they were the catalyst for future skis like the 5500 as the trend towards versatile all mountain skiing began. The introduction of K2’s patented triaxial braiding changed ski construction forever and was launched on the iconic TNC. This became the ski of choice in a little known movie called The Blizzard of Ahhhs that set the tone for the next decade in skiing and the future of actions sports around the globe.

WOMEN’S SKIS

ALL MOUNTAIN SKIS Advanced – Expert

Can be a combination of dimensions and profiles, resulting in very different models. Camber and/or tip shape is altered to improve soft snow performance. These are powerful go-anywhere do-anything skis to find challenges on- and off-piste.

FREERIDE SKIS Advanced – Expert

Using a longer radius and wider dimensions gives these skis maximum stability and floatation in softer or variable conditions. Camber and/or tip shape is altered to improve soft snow performance. Primarily offpiste skis, they handle groomers with ease.

Today we are exploring this straight lines underfoot for a specific benefit on freeskiing and freestyle orientated models and we see it can make a different skiing technique, with less effort and more natural foot rotation for changing direction; by the way, we are looking to expand that technology on an all condition ski project… but that is another story to come. EB: How would you describe what a 3D sidecut will do for a ski? HM: The 3Dimension sidecut combines 2 radii with a central flat line under foot. The tip and tail radii allow for easy turn initiation while the flat line provides stability, power and precision. + Easy turn initiation through the middle platform geometry + Total edge control underfoot with optimal pressure transfer + Optimal stability and centralised pivoting

EB: Scott is a global company and growing fast but is some way off the distribution network of the big ski brands, so how important is it to you to be working with a smaller ski brand, and how satisfying is it, having been such an important part of Scott’s growth in ski hardware? HM: The Scott company philosophy is based on Innovation Technology Design, and as individuals we have the chance in the company to be 100% part of the whole process of product development with a certain freedom of action; if we feel a concept, idea or new feature could work, we can go with it! This is also a gauge of confidence between product management and company owner. The situation of growth between big major ski brands and Scott for example, cannot be compared; at Scott, we do not get pressure for big number results like the big groups; the company philosophy is to create product categories with a high value of technology and passion. The results of the past seasons proves that we can deliver passion and consumer benefits first rather than focussing on economic and margin issues. My satisfaction is not only to get “SKI OF THE YEAR” or “GOLD MEDAL” with product every year; it is more to see people happy with our products and to see the Scott brand more and more on the slopes.

Völkl Kenja

HM: I had been exploring a new way of straight edge lines "no sidecut" on some 140cm teaching skis back in 2004/2005; of course this step was not received well in the carving years... Nobody was really interested in such new shaping back then so we did not continue this way. But at the time I could see some major advantages of such straight lines in the sidecut: better foot rotation, more stability, more forgiving underfoot.

HM: Principally, from skiing experience; my past job of ski trainer and teacher gave me a lot of input regarding ski consumers and made me think about the best way to make skiing easier for people. Even though we have dedicated many new innovative skis to the freeskiing segment (freeride and park), we do also think about sharing their benefits with other ski consumers.

Blizzard Black Pearl

EB: Your latest innovation is the 3D sidecut as seen on the new Punisher and the Tom Wallisch ski, where the central part of the ski has no shape and is perfectly straight. When did you first start working on the idea and how were the early prototypes?

EB: You’ve come up with some innovative designs before, such as the Venturi tips and tails, and - what was at the time – the fairly radical shape of the classic Mission ski. Where do you get your inspiration and ideas?

Which of your riders have the most interesting and effective ideas regarding ski design? We are fortunate to have a lot of guys on our program that provide effective ideas. Two guys on our team who stand out from an interesting perspective are JP Auclair and Ian Provo. With JP, he has a strong fundamental understanding of ski design and can explain his ideas in a tangible, articulate way for our engineers. Along the same vein is Provo – he’s very intelligent and provides us with great feedback from his helmet cam and gives us a point-of-view that we weren’t getting elsewhere. Besides those two, Tanner has always been a very good resource for feedback and in developing new ideas. We are also getting great input from our younger guys, like Torin YaterWallace as it relates to our park and pipe ski design. As young as he is, I’m amazed at how good his understanding is for what is happening with his skis.

The ARG was the first (commercial) design to apply our Elf Shoe Technology, which is a patented five-dimension design. To break it down, that’s a combination of rocker, reverse sidecut in the tip and tail and sidecut underfoot – literally one mm of sidecut. The widest point of the ARG is just in front of the binding’s toe piece and heel piece. And it has rocker and a little bit of a flat spot underfoot. We’re now applying that design with variations to the JJ, VJJ, Alpha, Halo and the new Magic J and Triple J. Additionally, we have hybrid versions of that profile where we are applying a 4 dimensions design composed of tip taper, rocker, camber, but no tail rocker; this shape can be found in TST, TSTw and the new Norwalk and Tantrum. In its various forms, Elf Shoe Technology gives a ski its versatility. Do you still get to ski much, and if so what’s the perfect day? I ski more than I probably should, given my other responsibilities. However, as you guys at Ellis Brigham know personally, we didn’t get into the ski industry as a means to make money – those grand notions were forgotten a long time ago. We got into because we love to ski and I make sure to take full advantage of the fact that my job brings me to all parts of the world where there is some amazing skiing. It’s hard to describe the perfect day as I can be easily amused at the smallest resorts or on the deepest pow days. I think what makes a perfect day skiing is being surrounded by people who love to ski as much as I do.

Armada VJJ

Between myself or our engineer, Alan Trimble, we’re on the phone with our athletes on a daily basis. If you give the athletes the venue to create the ideas, you’ll get a lot of good input. Not to mention, you have guys like Tanner and JP who are co-founders, so they are certainly involved on a greater level and motivated a little differently. To a certain extent, being small (Armada has 19 fulltime employees) allows us to have these conversations on a more consistent basis as we are all very accessible. The prototyping stage can be a long and arduous process, but we have the right guys designing and testing our product, who demand the best.

MEN’S SKIS

ALL MOUNTAIN CARVE AND ALL MOUNTAIN SKIS Intermediate – Advanced

All Mountain Carve skis have narrower waists and often a shorter turn radius to deliver faster edge changes and easier carving on firm snow. Ski flex is softer for ease of use at medium speeds. All Mountain skis can be a combination of dimensions and profiles, resulting in very different models. Camber and/or tip shape is altered to improve soft snow performance. These are go-anywhere do-anything skis built for spending more than 50% of time on piste, waists are around 80mm for quick edge changes without compromising floatation.

EB: Were you at all nervous with the decision to develop piste-focused skis when most companies are spending their research money on wider, all mountain targeted skis? DB: You are always nervous when a new project starts, wondering how will the product eventually be received by its target audience, but we painstakingly do our research before any work commences! We need to make sure we have exactly what the consumer is looking for. Rossignol wanted to re-emphasise the joy of those first turns on pisted corduroy and the sensation of your Pursuit skis arcing and carving below you, that experience shared with your friends on a blue sky day in the mountains is what it’s all about and why we are all drawn to the mountains! It is that passion that keeps driving us here at Rossignol.

EB: When you are designing and testing a totally new range, do you have to be very secretive, and where would you conduct the testing and at what time of year? DB: Ski designs and launching a new product is just like formula 1! All the different ski companies are trying to sneak a peak to see what emerges from behind the test labs doors! So yes, we do have to keep all our projects very secretive until they are officially launched. Test skis will not have any graphics on the skis and they tend to be simply black or white on the top sheet. Each ski is numbered, so our dedicated team of testers each spends time on the same ski before spending hour after hour discussing their findings. Rossignol have a dedicated team of testers constantly working with the products. They all get together normally once a month, for 1 week, testing the changes that have been made to the previous models. This takes place all over the world in winter and summer on the glaciers, until we get it perfect!

Dynastar Outland 80

DB: The whole process started with an initial idea over 3 years ago. Rossignol recognised that, whilst people’s ideals may be to ski the whole mountain, fact is sometimes different to the reality as over 80 percent of skiers still spend most of their time on piste. Rossignol then decided to come up with the ultimate on piste tool, a product still versatile enough to ski in the variable terrain, but with its main focus on giving the ultimate on piste sensations and feelings. We take a lot of the DNA from our race products, already proven on the World Cup, and filter some of these ideas into more user friendly versions. The tip rocker is something that was already proven in our World Cup GS and SL skis, so fitted in perfect with the ideas we were striving to achieve. The process involves lots of different teams, from initial product teams working on the idea, then graphic teams to come up with the visuals and then a whole team of marketing guys to bring the product to market. That is not to forget the teams of testers, who feed back all the information to us allowing modifications and tweaks to be made as the project progresses. All in all, over 100 very dedicated staff are involved in bringing the Pursuit range to the shelves of our stockists.

DB: There is never a specific number of prototypes we decide upon in the design process, it’s a question of testing one ski to the limits, getting all this feedback from our team of testers, which has questions set out on a criteria form. This information is then collated and fed back to the product team and engineers, who then make all the required changes and tweaks. This happens for every ski in the new Pursuit range, and when you take into account the number of skis for different types of customer and different sidecuts and shapes, the quantities are huge! We knew very early that what we were doing was special, simply by the smiles and the silence from our team of testers! That is the end goal, knowing that every customer that buys a pair of Rossignol skis will be smiling all day long!

MEN’S SKIS

ALL MOUNTAIN CARVE AND ALL MOUNTAIN SKIS Advanced – Expert

All Mountain Carve skis have narrower waists and often a shorter turn radius to deliver fast edge changes and smoother carving on firm snow. Ski flex is relatively firm for better grip, precision and increased power at medium and high speeds. All Mountain skis can be a combination of dimensions and profiles, resulting in very different models. Camber and/or tip shape is altered to improve soft snow performance. These are go-anywhere do-anything skis built for spending more than 50% of time on piste, waists are around 80mm for quick edge changes without compromising floatation.

BRAND CHAT: Head – René Harrer, Director Global Sales & Marketing, Wintersports

RH: There is lots of know-how and experience in that ski. Lots of tests and prototypes were necessary to get this kind of ski. But we’ve had a clear goal of designing the most versatile, easy

page 160

RH: The trend was clearly towards wider skis and we thought why not try to make a highperformance ski a bit wider. It’s a small extra but 78mm was the maximum width we thought made sense at that time, using a more traditional sidecut and radius. It’s a tool for people who really want to go off piste as well and ski all different conditions. Little bit like an SUV. Other skis might be more agile on hard pack but your wide high-performance SUV ski just crushes down. Without compromise.

EB: The i.Supershape Magnum is the ski of choice for many instructors, as well as many other skiers, thanks to its mix of power, versatility and ease of use. It has an almost perfect mix of characteristics, how easy is it to design a ski with race performance but make it versatile and enjoyable at a range of speeds?

EB: The Titan and its 78mm waist has proved equally as successful as the Magnum, this kind of width isn’t an obvious choice to have race technology and a race-look added. What was the thinking behind creating a wide, race inspired ski?

Head i.Supershape Magnum

RH: Supershape is clearly derived from our racing skis. But as those racing skis are too demanding for all day skiing, we adjusted the skiability to meet high-performance all day skiing. For good skiers though. Our top athletes have very valid input on all different kind of products and the Supershape line are skis they use themselves when they have time off. That makes it quite easy to talk to them as they have a clear understanding what a ski needs to do.

to use high-performance ski. You need passion and patience but in the end you get rewarded. You need to talk to people, let people test and feel and especially listen to their feedback. It s very important to have people who can transfer ideas and feedback into real products that work out like that.

Where’s it going to be skied? Fall-Line’s current Piste Ski of the Year and what a great pick it is too. The Pursuit 16 Ti loves to carve up the corduroy, the faster the better. Power Turn Rocker has a subtle tip rocker and traditional camber, delivering a combination of the explosive power of World Cup race skis and more playful carving. Who’s going to use it? Advanced piste skiers who love the thrill of turning, edge grip and acceleration. The full wood core has titanal reinforcement to ramp up the responsiveness; H Technology at the tip and tail simplifies the turn initiation and release. This is an easy to use highperformance carver that delivers when it needs to, without being punishing to use. Tester’s comments: Rob (Castlefield) ‘Predictable in both short and long radius turns. Gives you confidence knowing it will remain solid whilst ripping down pistes.’ Demo available Radius: 15.1m (170cm) Sidecut: 124/74/104 (170cm) Sizes: 163, 170, 177 Binding DIN: 3.5 to 12 Ski code 700263 Binding code 702263

Where’s it going to be skied? Pistes at fast speeds, whatever condition they’re in.

Head i.Supershape Magnum + Freeflex Pro 14 £600

Salomon Enduro XT 800 + Z12 £540

Where’s it going to be skied? Groomed runs, and the firmer the better – to take advantage of the grip and power generated from the World Cup sandwich construction and the boost effect of the built-in KERS. Ungroomed conditions are no bother either, as the Piezoelectric fibres of the Intelligence system influence the torsional rigidity and grip dependent on the vibrations – less vibrations equals less rigidity and more manoeuvrability for soft snow. Who’s going to use it? Expert level skiers who want precision, energy and response. And its reputation for delivering means you don’t have to look far on a mountain to see a Magnum either. It’s a regular choice of instructors who want to mix race-performance with versatility and ease-of-use. Tester’s comments: Mark W (Milton Keynes) ‘Very lively and snappy edge-to-edge; runs on rails when carving.

Advanced skiers who want an easy-to-use performance ski to spend lots of time on and around pistes, with a mix of conditions and terrain. Good technique is rewarded and its stability encourages exploration of the mountain. This is a multi-award winning ski that fully justifies sitting at the top of its class. Tester’s comments: Ben (Castleford) ‘Powerful and responds well. Stable at speed and ploughs through variable snow.’ Demo available Radius: 16.3m (175cm) Sidecut: 125/80/108 (175cm) Sizes: 161, 168, 175, 182 Binding DIN: 4 to 12 Ski code 700201 Binding code 702201

Where’s it going to be skied? Firm, fast, groomed runs and the more of them the better. A winner of a prestigious ISPO award for ski hardware, this is a special ski, built for medium and long radius high-speed carves with perfect balance. RoX technology adds dampening, a rocker and a carbon web to the tip of the ski. This gives huge amounts of torsional rigidity in a ski that is still effortless to turn. The result is scary amounts of grip, surprising ease-of-use and very fast, very happy skiers! Who’s going to use it? Advanced and expert skiers looking for a high-speed carving instrument. The stiff, fir core uses a metal laminate to boost power and response; sidewalls efficiently deliver this power to the edges. Prepare to be impressed. Tester’s comments: Dave B (Milton Keynes) ‘Solidity and stability through high speed turns. Brilliant for eating up miles of ski runs as fast as you can.’ Demo available Radius: 18m (179cm) Sidecut: 125/72/99 (179cm) Sizes: 172, 179, 186 Binding DIN: 5 to 14 Ski code 700218 Binding code 702218

Who’s going to use it? Advanced skiers who enjoy skiing everything, but who know that this can mean lots of time on piste. The wood and metal construction has the muscle when needed, sidewalls underfoot ensure the precision for harder snow. A big favourite with staff and customers, it’s a multi-talented ski that excels in many areas and represents excellent value for money. Tester’s comments: Mark N (Bristol) ‘Versatile enough to cope with a variety of terrain, it carves on piste, powers through crud.

MEN’S SKIS

ALL MOUNTAIN SKIS Advanced – Expert

Can be a combination of dimensions and profiles, resulting in very different models. Camber and/or tip shape is altered to improve soft snow performance. These are powerful go-anywhere do-anything skis designed to spend more than 50% of time off-piste, waists are between 85 and 89mm to maximise floatation without compromising groomed snow performance.

Flipcore A standard wood core is milled thinnest at the tip and tail, and thickest at the waist. The base is flat so the top section arches slightly, rising gently from the tip to the waist, then gradually dropping towards the tail. Blizzard literally turn this standard procedure upside down, putting the flat section at the top. By flipping this milled core upside down, the base of it now has a natural rocker – giving the ski the adaptability you would expect of rocker, with the energy and response of camber.

BRAND CHAT: Blizzard – Thomas Rakuscha, International Marketing Brand Manager

TR: No, we did not hear anything similar. And we are convinced the reason why nobody came up with a similar project was, that technology-wise, mould-wise, adjustment-wise, the permutation of this idea and concept was extremely difficult, extremely expensive and extremely demanding.

page 162

EB: Many brands seem to leave women’s models out of new-lines of skis, how important was it that you have a range of women’s Flipcore skis to sit alongside the men’s? TR: Women’s skis and especially lightweight skis are an enormous focus at Blizzard. With new materials, lightweight components, new concepts on swing weight distribution, spaceframe 3D technology and many more extraordinary concepts, Blizzard is going to explore more, specialist and dedicated segments of the market.

Atomic Crimson Ti

EB: On reflection it seems an obvious idea, flipping the milled wood core upside down to create a natural rocker shape. Had you heard of any other ski makers attempting this before you succeeded?

TR: Yes, it absolutely does! To win the ISPO award, to be ski of the year in the USA (the Mecca of free-mountain skis), to get incredible test results in ALL the main magazines around the world shows that David (with great ideas, great technicians, skilled workers, fanatically meticulous experts, fully committed people) can outperform even Goliath.

Movement Jam ER

TR: The first idea about Flipcore was actually born around 3 years ago. This was the time when rockered skis became more widespread, and we tested and analysed those products. Soon it was clear for Blizzard to not build ‘just another rockered ski’. We felt clear disadvantages and handicaps (chattering, no stability, weak edge-grip etc.) that those ‘against the natural flex and material-characteristics’ built skis, showed. The Flipcore idea was extraordinary even though it seemed to be logical in some way.

EB: Your test results for the whole Flipcore range have been truly staggering, as a brand whose R&D budget is surely dwarfed by the big players, this must make everyone at Blizzard very proud?

Salomon BBR 8.9

EB: Flipcore is an innovative way to add rocker to skis. When was the idea first discussed at Blizzard and were the initial trials successful?

FREERIDE SKIS Advanced – Expert

Using a longer radius and wider dimensions gives these skis maximum stability and floatation in softer or variable conditions. Camber and tip shape are altered to improve soft snow performance. Waists of at least 95mm ensure the best floatation, camber under foot provides decent hard snow ability. Primarily off-piste skis, they handle groomers with ease.

BRAND CHAT: Atomic – Markus Rehrl, Product Manager for Alpine/Freeski

EB: How many people would have been involved in designing and testing the Vantage range of skis, and how long did the process take?

EB: Both the Theory and the Alibi use positive camber underfoot and rocker at the nose. Do you think the use of rocker technology is here stay and how important is it to the characteristics of these skis?

MR: We have a pretty small, but experienced international team designing skis and the core test team are just a couple of guys too. This makes the whole process very flexible and we can shorten the time from the initial idea to finished product. Currently the development cycle from the idea to the launch of a product is about 18 month.

MR: We think rocker make absolutely sense if the rocker profile is designed in the right way for the specific needs. Especially on wider skis like the Theory and Alibi, the rocker technology is very important to make sure the skis are still easy and effortless to ski on different snow conditions at any terrain.

Atomic Alibi

MR: The major difference is the material of the Backbone, the amount of rocker, the stronger Vshape and of course the Alibi is 3mm wider under foot. The Theory has a Carbon Backbone and the Alibi has a Ti Backbone, the result is that the Alibi offers more performance, better running stability, more edge hold, so we categorise the Alibi as a high-performance all mountain ski. The longer tip rocker and more V-shape makes the ski even more versatile.

Scott Venture

MR: Based on our experience in designing skis, we set up these models from the beginning in the right way and the first test were super positive. That means we realised in a pretty early stage that these skis would perform outstandingly. But I have to say, other brands try to develop their products every year to the next level as hard as we do, at the end you never know who is winning until the magazine tests are done.

EB: The Theory and the Alibi are similar skis in shape, where are the major differences and how do they impact on the performance?

Atomic Theory

EB: The Theory won the coveted Ski of the Year award from Fall-Line magazine last year, and the Alibi has picked up the same accolade for this season. At what point in the design and testing process do you realise you have created something that is just that little bit better than its rivals?

Where’s it going to be skied? Last year’s Fall-Line magazine Overall Ski of the Year. It’s built for skiing soft snow and off-piste with the grip and control to handle firmer stuff and mixed conditions. This means it’s happy chewing through a few miles of groomed trails too. 95mm in the waist ensures the floatation, camber underfoot provides the edge hold, and rocker on the nose helps with versatility. Who’s going to use it? Good all mountain skiers who want snow soft performance but decent ability elsewhere too, possibly even an occasional lap in the park. It’s a topseller and award winner that has been improved by a Carbon Backbone added to the wood core, increasing the levels of grip and liveliness. Tester’s comments: Sandy (Braehead) ‘Nice, smooth feel with a lot of power and grip on piste. Suits a massive range of conditions.’ Demo available Radius: 19m (177cm) Sidecut: 130/95/119 (177cm) Sizes: 168, 177, 186 Binding DIN: 4 to 12 Ski code 700242 Binding code 702242

The 96mm waist is up to dealing with all but the very deepest of days; the 16m radius and wood core provide clean, precise turns on groomed runs. A Venturi tip rocker boosts the versatility, reducing snow friction and increasing float. Who’s going to use it? Advanced skiers who want to ski everything, and demand control on steep pistes and manoeuvrability off-piste. A dual radius sidecut improves handling in all conditions and sidewalls help with ‘laying down’ the power. Wherever you go, the Venture will remain supremely stable and beautifully balanced – encouraging you to ski longer, faster, further.

FREERIDE SKIS Advanced – Expert

Using a longer radius and very wide dimensions gives these skis maximum stability and floatation in softer or variable conditions. Camber and tip shape are altered to improve soft snow performance. Waists of at least 107mm ensure the very best floatation. These skis are designed to offer the ultimate soft snow performance, but can still deal comfortably with firmer conditions.

EB: When did you start dreaming up the idea for your first ski and how long did it take for the company and then the ski to come to fruition? How long does it take an idea to become reality now?

WT: We are very lucky to have some big names in freeride skiing behind the brand. So far, we have had podium wins on the Freeride World Tour – a

WT: We’ve been experimenting with ski design since the early nineties, watching and learning how minute adjustments to shapes and cambers can transform the ski experience. The design process for Whitedot revolves around user testing and experimentation with different prototype models by our team of pro-riders across Europe and America. It usually takes us about 2 years for a design concept to make it onto the market and as this is a reasonably short timeframe, it allows Whitedot to be an innovator within the industry. This winter, we are really excited to be launching the new CarbonLite range which uses innovative and sustainable materials such as ‘flax’ to lighten the ski.

Völkl – Shiro, a favourite of the Völkl International Freeski Team

Stian Hagen – I could easily have the Shiro as my only pair of skis, it can ski anything, even the piste well.

Ted Davenport – The new Shiro is an incredible ski. This ski simply mobs through powder and crud.

Per Jonsson – The perfect freeride ski.

EB: For a small brand that is still at the start of their journey, you have some amazing riders on your team and they’ve had some spectacular results on your skis. What has been the biggest high so far in terms of the team?

Paddy Graham – The best powder ski I can wish for letting me drop cliffs, hit jumps and ski lines, it’s fast and responsive which is very fun to ride. Matt Philippi – I love the Shiro because it is incredibly versatile… I choose this ski whether I am skiing 3 feet of fresh snow, backcountry jumps, big cliffs, and late season corn skiing. It is light, fast, and strong. It is my ski for 3 cm of snow or 3 meters. This ski has a perfect rocker profile. It is wide enough to float, but it is still nimble. It is strong, but light. The new graphic is pretty sick, too. Ian Macintosh – It’s so versatile, it can be deep pow, super steep, or hard pack and I’m still loving it. I found that I could ski a couple gears faster than ever before. Finally a stable fully rockered ski.

page 166

Florian Weiser – It’s got the perfect shape to do everything with it. This ski likes deep powder, but one of the best days last season I got on proper slopes with this ski, long and fast turns are amazing. Grete Eliassen – I fell in love with the Shiro this year because I love to float on top of powder and still ski a strong turn. I feel totally in control while skiing on this ski and I would recommend it to anyone who likes to ski pow. Ingrid Backstrom – The Shiro is my new favourite for ultimate powder days – such a sweet addition. Jen Hudak – The best powder ski on the market. The Shiro is great for big mountain skiing. It skis amazingly well in powder but also holds its own against crud on less than ideal days. It was my go to ski in Japan last winter!

EB: You make seriously good freeride skis, as evidenced by the fact that in every freeride resort in the world your distinctive graphics are visible all over the mountain. What makes Whitedot skis special compared to those from other ski companies?

major European backcountry competition – for each of our flagship ski models. We also saw the Redeemer ski being used to make a first descent on a route in the Mont Blanc range last year. That said, the Whitedot team still get a kick when we spot customers on our skis from the chairlift. And it is just great to hear from people who love our range of skis and who are really getting to grips with freeride skiing and experiencing new sensations.

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £625 / with Marker Baron 13 £800 Where’s it going to be skied? Whitedot is a small European company making innovative freeride skis and fast gaining a reputation for great product. The Director is a perfect example of what being small means, as they push the boundaries and do what big brands might be scared of. A 5-point sidecut uses full rocker with a firm construction to deliver serenely smooth handling in soft and mixed snow, with grip and power on firm conditions. Who’s going to use it? Confident skiers looking for something with impressive stability, float and ease of turning to take their all condition skiing to the next level. This could be anyone from a novice all mountain skier to a seasoned expert, all will love what this ski does in ungroomed snow. Tester’s comments: Steve (Buying Office) ‘Effortless in soft and variable snow, just flows through the turns; still packs a punch and grip on firm snow.’ Radius: 21.5m(178cm) Sidecut: 117-121/107/111-107(178cm) Sizes: 168, 178, 188 Ski code 700271 Binding code Peak 12 702282, Baron 13 702293/702294

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £665 / with Marker Baron 13 £840 Where’s it going to be skied? Steep and deep, if you can find it. If you can’t, then the Cochise will charge anything there is to find. The Flipcore and full rocker ensure smooth handling whatever the condition of the snow; the sidewalls and double titanium layer wood core provide the power and the grip. A bamboo layer increases spring whilst keeping the weight low. Who’s going to use it? Experts who like to push their limits and advanced skiers who want the best equipment. The Cochise has the dimensions for the deep and a radius that delivers stability, but for such a big ski it’s surprisingly versatile, again, thanks to Flipcore technology. Tester’s comments: Marcin (Tower House) ‘Made for charging! Stiff and rock-solid piece of art. Not much shape so everything is up to the user.

Scott Punisher £425 (ski only)

Whitedot Redeemer £550 (ski only)

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £530 / with Marker Griffon 13 £600 Where’s it going to be skied? Loads of backcountry and maybe even a lap in the park. The Twin Tip Rocker improves handling in deep snow as the tip stays near the surface – and also aids switch powder skiing. A wood core provides easy energy and the sidewalls improve precision. It’s a great first powder ski as it happily skis other conditions too. Who’s going to use it? All mountain skiers looking to get a wider ride and start accessing the deeper conditions. Confidence will be boosted by the stability provided from the 3D sidecut (a straight section in the middle joins the radii of the tip and tail to give better control and turning). And if that isn’t convincing, then maybe the price is. Tester’s comments: Dave B (Milton Keynes) ‘What a ski! Balanced wherever you go and at all speeds. Powerful edge-to-edge, with easy turn initiation.’ Demo available Radius: 3D (183cm) Sidecut: 142/108/130 (183cm) Sizes: 173, 183, 189 Ski code 700228 Binding code Peak 12 702282, Griffon 13 702297

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £655 / with Salomon STH 16 Driver £750 Where’s it going to be skied? Wherever you can find deep snow, from the steeps of Alaska to the open faces of Chile, not forgetting the powder days in Europe. A hefty 128mm in the waist, with a 5-point sidecut and full rocker design, guarantees immense floatation and flowing turns in the deep. Who’s going to use it? Heli skiers, cat skiers, chargers and powder hounds. It’s not an everyday ski, but when the right days come, then it becomes indispensable. These kind of special runs deserve a special ski. A poplar and ash wood core provides grip and power without being heavy, the long radius delivers stability and the short effective edge works with the reverse camber to improve manoeuvrability. Tester’s comments: Marcin (Tower House) ‘Fast, stable and very direct, this is a big ski with a lot of surface area. Exceptional in soft snow; epic in deep conditions.’ Radius: 21.5m(180cm) Sidecut: 138-142/128/132-128(180cm) Sizes: 180, 190 Ski code 700269 Binding code Peak 12 702281, STH 16 Driver 702289

It has the width for the deepest days, and clever tip and tail profiles to assist with floatation and turning. But where other fat skis fail, the Preacher continues to shine. It has positive camber and a relatively deep sidecut, making pistes fun and taming variable conditions. Who’s going to use it? Good skiers looking for the best in versatile fat skis. This is a ski that likes to be pushed but is never demanding; gliding effortlessly in fresh snow and smooth through chop. And nowhere is its brilliance more obvious than in cut-up conditions. Here it remains balanced and refined without ever getting deflected, and it does this without resorting to over-stiff materials or race constructions. Tester’s comments: Ben (Castlefield) ‘Powerful ski but feels very subtle and assured. Amazing float and drive through the turn.’ Radius: 16.5m (179cm) Sidecut: 155/112/133 (179cm) Sizes: 169, 179, 189 Ski code 700270 Binding code Peak 12 702282, Baron 13 702293/702294

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £705 / with Salomon STH 16 Driver £800 Where’s it going to be skied? With a tip of 151mm and a waist of 119mm, the Shiro clearly lays its cards on the table as a ski for deep snow. Völkl’s Full Rocker High produces a reverse camber with a large rise at the tip and tail. This boosts handling in soft snow and makes it feel impressively simple to ski, not just in powder, as hard snow performance is a pleasant surprise too, thanks to a firm wood core. Who’s going to use it? A big range of skiers, but all with powder on the mind. Chargers will appreciate the massive surface area and grin-inducing float, more controlled skiers will delight in the balance and ease-of-use. Tester’s comments: Steve (Buying Office) ‘Scarily easy to use for a high performance ski. Very predictable and stable, but so much fun in powder.’ Radius: 26.4m (183cm) Sidecut: 151/119/135 (183cm) Sizes: 183, 193 Ski code 700209 Binding code Peak 12 702281, STH 16 Driver 702289

For me, the Rocker2108 is the best ski Salomon has ever made. I spent about 80% of my time skiing on it last season. The shape and full rocker profile make it super-playful in all kinds of terrain. It’s wide enough to be a great powder ski (even in places like Whistler), and the solid sidecut and camber underfoot makes sure the ski holds really well on ice and hardpack. With the honeycomb technology in the tip and tail, we were able to reduce the weight and give the Rocker2 108 the feeling of a much smaller ski. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. The biggest challenge the design group faces right now is – how do we improve it?

The EST Freeride Rocker uses a 5-point sidecut with rocker at the tip and tail and camber underfoot, to produce amazing floatation in soft snow, excellent edge hold and responsive, light handling. Tester’s comments: Luke (Buying Office) ‘Smooth to ski, really interesting 5-point sidecut, and amazing float through the deep snow.’ Radius: 16m(185cm) Sidecut: 126-136/115/133-123(185cm) Sizes: 175, 185 Ski code 700258 Binding code Peak 12 702282, STH 16 Driver 702289

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £650 / with Salomon STH 16 Driver £745 Where’s it going to be skied? It rips in powder and it’s lively and quick (for a 120mm waist ski) on groomed runs. The dimensions ensure it has the base area for a lot of float in deep snow; the camber and 5-point sidecut of EST Freeride Rocker add the versatility to make getting to the goods almost as much fun as the powder. Camber underfoot adds grip; rocker at the nose and tail improves handling. Who’s going to use it? Backcountry freestylers wanting an exceptionally playful, surfy-feeling wide ski. It will spin, it will hold an edge on hard pack, it can dance around the trees, it will plane through soft snow and release smoothly in chop. It’s quite possibly the most fun, big, powder ski available. Tester’s comments: Dave C (Castlefield) ‘Powder loving dimensions on this scale and playfulness wouldn’t ordinarily go together but the AKJJ pulls it off.’ Radius: 18m(195cm) Sidecut: 131-141/120/138-128(195cm) Sizes: 195 Ski code 700257 Binding code Peak 12 702281, STH 16 Driver 702289

MEN’S SKIS

FREESTYLE SKIS Intermediate – Expert

Twin tipped skis with waists between 85 and 90mm. Tips and tails are softer to improve handling in variable snow and increase forgiveness on landings; waists remain firm for grip and power. Camber profiles vary but all models make excellent all mountain skis.

JL: I am still the guy responsible for driving the product from initial concept, to every detail of what you see in the store. However, the difference from back when I was a one man show to now is that I’m now surrounded by people that specialize in each aspect of the design process with more knowledge & skill than myself in their area of expertise. We’ve got engineers that turn our ideas into game changing real products, and artists that continually raise the bar on graphics. In the end, it’s a team effort that doesn’t ship to you until I approve it’s 110% Line. EB: Where do you and the company draw your inspiration, and how much do team riders and also end consumers play a part? JL: If you consider yourself a skier, you play a part. I realised a long time ago that expecting good ideas to come from staring at computer screens all day wasn’t realistic. Our best ideas come from keeping our ears and minds open to anyone and everyone from the random chairlift ride with an enthusiastic consumer, to a random comment from a shop employee, to any athlete we sponsor. If you’re a skier, you definitely have an opinion and we’d like to hear it.

EB: What’s the craziest idea Eric or any of the other team guys have come with? JL: In the early 2000’s, the widest ski at the time was under 100mm waist so, although it doesn’t sound crazy today, Eric Pollard sent me a 2 page email explaining why we needed to build for him a twin tip over 130mm wide. I felt his email was spoken as if he was a prophet from the future, thus the model eventually was named the “Prophet 130”, which evolved over the years into the current Prophet Series. Some of the prototypes at the time were up to 150mm wide and from 160cm to 205cm in length. We’ll try anything, send us an idea! EB: Early Taper and Early Rise are both proven and effective technologies, what’s your take on the rocker / reverse camber situation? JL: We don’t use reverse camber but we developed Early Rise (typically referred to as Rocker) to make a ski float easier in soft snow & be less hooky on hard pack. However, just like a twin tip shape, or a wood core, or carbon or metal in a ski, there’s a time and place for everything. We believe Early Rise should only be applied to skis in which it enhances its specific performance goal, and not to every model ski simply because it’s a new technology.

EB: You founded Line and designed the first skis, even building them yourself, how involved are you now, do you still play a role in design?

JL: Because Eric’s skiing abilities are only part of what he brings, his contribution to our brand, our products and the ski industry as a whole goes far beyond the typical pro athlete. His unique style and approach to skiing has driven him to conceive of new & different product designs that we’ve since applied to ‘most every ski we make. He literally sends our engineers drawings with dimensions, often testing over 50 prototypes before getting it just right. He also is an incredible artist which, when applied to his pro models or other skis in our line, sets them apart from the rest. In addition, he also runs his own crew of filmers and skiers www.nimbusindependent.com to document him and his friends’ unique style of skiing & spread the word. He’s a one-man multi media ski company and we’re honoured to have been his first and only ski sponsor for the past 15 years.

Völkl Ledge

As the founder of Line skis, Jason is one of the true pioneers of skiing in the last 18 years. He’s proven that small specialist brands can compete with the big guys and regularly beat them. Where he led, others have followed with numerous independent ski companies hitting up niche markets. Line may now be part of a bigger group of ski companies that includes K2 and Völkl, but, as a brand, they remain fiercely independent and true to their roots. Ski development is rider driven, meaning the skis perfectly meet skiers’ aspirations and constantly push the boundaries of design. Nowhere is this more apparent than the relationship between Line and Eric Pollard.

EB: Eric Pollard has worked on his own models for a number of seasons now, gaining a reputation for making interesting, fun and effective skis; what extra does he bring to the process of making skis?

FREESTYLE K2 Sight £250 (ski only)

Armada AR7 £440 (ski only)

with Tyrolia Peak 11 £325 / with Tyrolia Peak 12 £355 Where’s it going to be skied? The Sight is equally happy lapping the park, cruising groomers or searching off-piste for fresh turns. 85mm in the waist and an All Terrain Rocker means it’s suited to a variety of conditions, the camber underfoot providing energy and response, the nose rocker improving the handling and floatation. Who’s going to use it? Intermediate all mountain skiers and novice freestylers wanting performance without breaking the bank. The wood core and sidewall construction ensure grip, durability and, with the directional sidecut, provide good stability for skiing different terrain. TwinTech sidewalls use a 90° angle at the edge for control, and roll the top material over where the join is, increasing resistance to chipping. Tester’s comments: Dave C (Castlefield) ‘Great first twin-tip, playful and forgiving but capable over the whole mountain.’ Demo available Radius: 20m (179cm) Sidecut: 118/85/109 (179cm) Sizes: 149, 159, 169, 179 Ski code 700221 Binding code Peak 11 702284, Peak 12 702283

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £545 / with Marker Griffon 13 £615 Where’s it going to be skied? Lots of time in the park and all over the mountain, searching out natural hits and jibs. It has a well-earned reputation for being playful and easy to handle in the park, yet it’s solid and powerful on groomers and jumps. Positive camber provides the grip for firm snow, carbon and Kevlar stringers add the pop. Who’s going to use it? All mountain park skiers who want one ski to be both a high-performance park model and a quality all mountain offering. The dimensions and construction ensure versatility; the AR50 Sidewalls blend cap at the tip and tail for low weight and durability, with sidewalls for grip. Armada’s flagship park ski, and to celebrate thier 10th anniversary the original AR graphic has returned. Tester’s comments: Eddie (Castleford) ‘Snappy and fun. Amazing in the pipe, stable on piste. Really enjoyable for various abilities right up to Pro.’ Demo available Radius: 20.5m (176cm) Sidecut: 119/86/109 (176cm) Sizes: 166, 171, 176, 181 Ski code 700260 Binding code Peak 12 702283, Griffon 13 702298

with Tyrolia Peak 11 £375 / with Marker Griffon 13 £475 Where’s it going to be skied? Parks, whether in the UK or abroad, plus natural hits, fast groomers and all terrain. The symmetrical dimensions are slim enough to keep the weight down for easier spins and provide enough width to feel solid on pistes and offer float in soft snow. Tip and tail rocker improves handling for jibs and tricks as well as all mountain manoeuvrability; camber underfoot boosts grip. Who’s going to use it? Freestylers wanting great park performance and good all mountain versatility. It’s smooth in the pipe and poppy on kickers. The full wood core and sidewall construction ensure good stability and response; the camber profile means it’s simple to ski and always encouraging improvement. Tester’s comments: Ben (Castleford) ‘Really playful, jibby ski that has good edge hold. Tail provides nice solid pop. Good entry-level park ski.’ Demo available Radius: 21.2m (171cm) Sidecut: 112/85/112 (171cm) Sizes: 163, 171, 179 Ski code 700213 Binding code Peak 11 702284, Griffon 13 702298

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £520 / with Salomon STH 12 Driver £585 Where’s it going to be skied? The Iron Maiden uses midsized freestyle dimensions, so that it can lay down in the park and still shred some powder turns. The All-Terrain Rocker has camber underfoot for grip and response, plus rocker at the tip and tail to improve handling in ungroomed conditions. This produces smoother initiation in the park and on the mountain. Who’s going to use it? Park and powder slayers that push freestyle skis to their limits. The fir/aspen wood core is solid and lively; ABSorb sidewalls mix Urethane underfoot for dampening big landings, with ABS at the tip and tail for better edge control. The bi-directional sidecut ensures switch riding is almost as comfortable as forwards. Tester’s comments: Eddie (Castleford) ‘Rock solid but butters easily.

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £495 / with Salomon STH 12 Driver £560 Where’s it going to be skied? Big kickers, icy pipes, and fast groomers. The Jib TW is Tom Wallisch’s pro model ski, built to his specifications for his type of skiing. Expect maximum stability, a lot of pop and precision control. The wood core is snappy and responsive, sidewalls add grip and the slight cap of the top sheet improves the durability. A race base ensures the fastest glide for the biggest airs. Who’s going to use it? Freestylers who want a ski that can go big in the park, and also feel quick and responsive when getting around the mountain. The 3Dimension Sidecut combines 2 radii at the tip and tail, with a central straight section underfoot. This improves edge control and creates a very stable ski. Tester’s comments: Ben (Castleford) ‘Effortless popping to switch. Low swing weight and easy to move around. Does everything you need a park ski to do.’ Demo available Radius: 3D (178cm) Sidecut: 114/86/108 (178cm) Sizes: 168, 178, 184 Ski code 700230 Binding code Peak 12 702283, STH 12 Driver 702290

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £450 / with Salomon STH 12 Driver £515 Where’s it going to be skied? The Kink is a brand new model for 2012/13 and is Völkl’s take on an all mountain freestyle ski. Camber underfoot works with the wood core and sidewall construction to provide edge grip for hard snow, plus response and liveliness for better park and piste performance. Rocker at the tip and tail improves handling in all conditions, from powder to kickers. Who’s going to use it? All mountain skiers who enjoy the odd lap in the park; freestylers who enjoy hitting up the mountain in search of natural features. Wherever you take the kink, it is always fun. In the park, camber profile boosts power and adds forgiveness; in soft snow, the shape increases float and control; and on groomers the directional sidecut aids turning and stability.

MEN’S SKIS K2 Press £220 (ski only) with Tyrolia Peak 11 £295 / with Tyrolia Peak 12 £325 Where’s it going to be skied? The Press will shred the park features of all but the biggest pro lines, and still be up for a few all mountain runs, looking for some powder or terrain features. The Jib Rocker uses a flat camber underfoot for easy steering and good control on boxes and rails; the rocker at the nose and tail improves handling. Cap construction increases the durability. Who’s going to use it? Novice freestylers and younger or lightweight intermediates looking for an easy all mountain ski. The wood core is light and lively with great pop, and means the Press has a super low swing weight for easier spins. At under £300 with a freestyle binding this represents amazing value for a quality ski. Tester’s comments: Mark W (Milton Keynes) ‘Surprisingly agile and held an edge a lot better than I thought they might, completely ‘chuck-able’ ski.’ Demo available Radius: 20m (179cm) Sidecut: 113/85/104 (179cm) Sizes: 149, 159, 169 Ski code 700222 Binding code Peak 11 702284, Peak 12 702283

PARK SKIS

Intermediate – Expert Medium waists and turn radii, twin tipped and often with less rocker than standard freestyle skis so that they have better grip and power. Tips and tails are more forgiving for presses and butters. Flex and sidecut are designed to work perfectly skiing switch.

WHAT THE PRO’s THINK: Jacob Wester, Armada AR7 – The flagship ski, the AR7. As far as park goes I wouldn’t pick any other all-around ski, this is your traditional top of the line, park ski. Henrik Harlaut, Aramada AR7 – I basically skied, competed X-Games and everything... on one pair of AR7’s all year. Didn’t break any pair so they hold up super good.

Line StepUp £345 (ski only)

JP Auclair, Armada AR7 – As traditional as traditional could be in the sport. Classic. Awesome!

Shea Flynn, K2 Sight – Skinnier under foot so you can manipulate your skis easier, (great for controlling the pipe). Sturdy construction, the Sight has a stiffer flex, which when combined with the narrow side walls allows for insane pop. Shea Flynn, K2 Press – Classic park ski, super buttery and super flexy, (butters, trannies, etc.) with an ill graphic. Easier to get around than the Maiden because it’s a lighter ski. Sean Jordan, K2 Iron Maiden – The Iron Maiden is a versatile ski that lets you ski the entire mountain with support. For those of you not in the mountains, they will cater to the dry slopes and urban with the same responsive pop and flex. Nico Zacek, Völkl Kink – By far the best ski in the world!!! I love riding it every day... in the park as well as the pipe, and on lets say “medium deep powder days”. Actually, it’s a crazy lot of fun on the groomers! Caja Schöpf, Völkl Kink – For bigger jumps and for jibbing, it’s a really nice and playful ski in the park.

Atomic Punx

Line StepUp

Legit sizes, you can get this ski in a 164, 169, 174 and 179, being able to get a ski in a 174 and a 179 is hella rare but K2 knows what’s up. Strong enough for stomping landings but the All Terrain Rocker allows you to catch illy tranny if that’s what you’re shooting for. Personally, one of the best skis I’ve ever mounted and skied, it’s my go to ski.

K2 Press

Shea Flynn, K2 Iron Maiden – The best ski graphic ever made (in my opinion) who wants bright colours and cartoon images when you can rock the grim reaper? Very durable, the strongest edges you can ask for that don’t crack easily.

with Tyrolia Peak 12 £450 / with Marker Griffon 13 £520 Where’s it going to be skied? Plenty of time in the park and hitting features, though it’s surprisingly capable getting around the rest of the mountain too. The Symmetric Flex and shape make a ski that is equally happy skiing forwards or back, as well as feeling perfectly balanced when spinning or on rails. The Maple Macro Block wood core produces plenty of pop and the 5Cut sidecut improves control and handling. Who’s going to use it? Freestylers who want an innovative and ultra quick ski to go bigger and faster. Deckwall construction uses sidewalls for a smooth flex and a solid feel; Early Rise at the tip and tail improve turning, and the Fatty Base & Edge add durability. Tester’s comments: Ben (Castleford) ‘Great flex pattern, stiff enough to respond, soft enough for jibbing around and pressing. Good ski for switch riding.’ Demo available Radius: 19.3m (176cm) Sidecut: 113/86/113 (176cm) Sizes: 166, 171, 176, 181 Ski code 700237 Binding code Peak 12 702283, Griffon 13 702298

Atomic Punx + FFG 16 Team £540 Where’s it going to be skied? Parks, urban hits and artificial slopes. The Punx is one the very best freestyle skis available, a statement backed up by the huge number of podium places it has taken over the last few seasons. It feels precise and lively thanks to the full wood core; slanted sidewalls add grip without overdoing it. Who’s going to use it? Freestyler skiers looking for a responsive, poppy ski to ensure they reach their full potential. A waist of 82mm and a 20m radius sidecut provide excellent stability; the thick edges increase the durability. It’s easy to spin with its light weight and it still manages to lay down solid carves, when skiing back to the lifts. Tester’s comments: Eddie (Castleford) ‘Nimble and light with great pop and butter. Solid on piste with a good balanced feel. Perfect for advanced freestylers.’ Demo available Radius: 20m (173cm) Sidecut: 110.5/82/110.5 (173cm) Sizes: 164, 173, 182 Binding DIN: 9 to 16 Ski code 700243 Binding code 702243

James Webb, Atomic Punx – I ride the Punx because they are an awesome all round ski; they’re light, so jibbing around on them is sick but they’re still super solid on big kickers and in the pipe.

TECHNICAL FEATURES

Handle

Strap

Dual density handles tend to be more comfortable as they can feel slightly softer and normally grip better. Mono-material handles will be cheaper but won’t feel as comfortable. Women’s specific poles sometimes use a smaller handle.

Cheaper poles will use a simple system of nylon strap and pullthrough locking system, this is easy to use and very effective. Wider straps may feel more comfortable, though the very best versions will use padding and/or Velcro closure systems. Leki use an innovative release system that can separate the strap from pole in the event of a large fall, reducing the chance of wrist or thumb injuries.

Ski Pole Sizing

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 but it will be more expensive. Some women’s specific poles will use a narrower diameter to reduce weight. Composite shafts are lighter and narrower than aluminium.

SKI HARDWARE

WE KNOW FEET At Ellis Brigham we have been involved with fitting feet into boots since 1933. The company started out from a small shop in North Manchester, specialising in cycling shoes and outdoor footwear, quickly gaining a reputation as the place to get expertly made and fitted boots. Nearly 80 years on and this focus on feet hasn’t changed at all. We still pride ourselves in offering the best products and combining them with the most effective techniques, and this applies especially to ski boots. A modern ski boot is a blend of comfort and performance, built to enhance your enjoyment – rigid plastics deliver power and control, softer plastics add precision and carefully sculptured foams provide cushioning and hold. But all this technology is no use if the right product is not chosen. That’s why our boot technicians employ proven fitting processes and receive in-depth training under the SUREfit system. We know feet and we understand how to make them comfortable.

6 EASY STEPS TO BUYING YOUR SKI BOOTS Step 1 – Initial Discussion Your boot fitter needs to know as much about your skiing history and ambitions as possible. Think about your preferred terrain, the speed you ski at, and the type of turns. Tell your fitter about your past experiences with ski boots, especially any recurring problems. Discuss what type of fit would be best for you. Finally, have in mind a realistic price bracket for your ability. This should allow for the addition of a supportive footbed.

Step 2 – Foot and Stance Analysis We need to see your feet to assess their shape and match it to a boot. Your fitter will need to get hands on with your bare feet (if your toenails are trimmed short you will achieve a better fit). While inspecting your feet, we will point out any areas that may cause problems. An assessment of your alignment and foot-stability enables the correct footbed solution to be recommended for your needs. Finally, you are measured. This is a guide, a starting point and is nothing to do with your shoe size. Don’t be surprised if it comes up smaller than you expected.

Step 3 – The Shell Check Ski boots are comprised of 2 basic components: the innerboot (liner), for comfort and control; and the shell, for transmission, performance and fit. The shell governs how a boot fits, so a ‘shell check’ is needed with every boot you try – this will ensure it’s the correct size, shape, and volume for your foot. We check 4 points: length, ankle width, forefoot width, and instep height. With your foot in the shell only, and your big toe lightly touching the end, there should be approximately 1020mm space behind your heel. We use about 10mm for

page 180

a performance fit, and up to 20mm is our recreational fit. The rest of the check is done with the foot positioned centrally in the shell. A guide would be 3 to 5mm space at each side of the forefoot, 5-10mm at each ankle bone, and 10mm above the instep, allows enough room to replace the innerboot and maintain a close and snug fit without over-tightening the buckles.

Step 4 – Trying On To achieve a good fit, you need quality thin ski socks with a proper heel and strategic padding. Ski boots feel tight and a bit short at first, don’t panic, this is normal. The innerboot is designed to fit in length and volume, initially with no excess space. Fasten the buckles round the leg first, this will pull the foot back. A few ankle-flexes will push the heel further into the ‘heel pocket’ producing a little more toe room. Keep the boots on for at least 15 minutes. During this time your body heat will soften the innerboot’s foam, allowing it to compress a little and creating more volume around your foot. You should be aware that your toes are at the end of the boot, and that it’s a close and snug fit – as if someone has hold of your feet with both hands. There should be very little or no movement at the heel and ankle when replicating skiing movements. Remember that, with use, ski boots will increase in volume by about 15%, so don’t oversize. Don’t over-tighten the buckles; they are there to close the boot, not to hold your foot still. If you have issues with the fit, or it just doesn’t feel right, try a different boot in the same size. Remember that a well made custommoulded footbed will support and stabilise your feet in the correct alignment, dramatically improving the fit. You should be trying 2 or 3 models of boot only. Don’t attempt to try every boot on display. Talk to your bootfitter and listen to their advice.

Step 5 – Boot Customisation We cannot emphasise enough the importance of a wellmade custom footbed to a successful boot fitting. In most cases it is the key to a successful fitting. Heat-mouldable innerboots are standard with all our ski boots, and should be done to ensure an accurate fit. Moulding only starts the bedding-in process. You need to ski for about 15 hours to bed a boot in properly. Ski boots are designed to be adapted. This can take the form of shell stretching; internal shell grinding; and cutting, stretching and removing foam padding from innerboots. These options are available to customise the boot to your individual foot shape.

Step 6 – At Home Wear your new boots and footbeds as much as possible before you go skiing. Wear them at home first, standing – not sitting. Once you have got more used to the fit, go and ski in them at your local dry slope or indoor snow slope. Sensations like tingling, numbness or some hot spots are to be expected to start with. If they don’t ease with use, take the boots into a store for some alterations. Even if you have a more painful problem, please don’t panic, in most cases it only takes a small change to fix it.

There is one thing you must remember, to have time – both on the day of the fitting and before you plan to use the boots. It will take around 1½ to 2 hours in the shop.

Skiing and ski boots are unnatural for human physiology. We place our feet in a harsh environment and exert more stress through skiing, it’s no wonder feet hurt trying to

shapes and volumes within their collection. Therefore we carry a large boot range to offer different shapes and volumes in order to find a 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 make the difference between a boot that fits correctly, and a boot that doesn’t.

(£77.50 when bought with full-priced ski boots) Exclusive to Ellis Brigham, this custom made footbed uses hard foam that is carefully ground and shaped to add stiffness. It provides the firmest level of stability and support to suit skiers wanting the ultimate precision, or for feet that require the maximum levels of control. Buy SUREfit custom footbeds with full-priced ski boots and save £20 on the price of the footbeds.

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 Sidas SUREfit custom footbeds. They provide the support and stability within the ski boot enabling your feet to adapt better to the alien environment in which they are placed.

Sidas footbeds and how to prevent common boot problems 1

1. SORE SHINS Too much space around the lower leg will allow it to rock back and forth, banging the shin into the tongue. Pronation creates an inward rotation of the lower leg, during flexion the shin rubs laterally on the tongue. Poor quality socks can intensify the problem. Footbeds will support and reduce the rotation.

2

2. COLD / NUMB TOES Poor circulation and nerve pressure are the cause. Support from footbeds helps circulation by spreading the pressure evenly over the sole of the foot, allowing 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 foot collapsing and nipping nerves. Support the bones with a footbed and relieve the pressure. Foot width can be an issue, so adaptations to the boot can help.

3

4

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 pain centrally in the lower calf (commonly seen in high heel wearers). Symptoms can be relieved and balance improved by supporting the foot and fitting a Conform’able heel lift. Regular stretching 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, overtightening boot buckles, a neuroma, over-pronation, these can all contribute to metatarsalgia. People with high or low arches tend to suffer more. Supporting the whole foot and creating a more balanced platform inside the boot with firmly constructed footbeds will help.

5 6

5+6. PRESSURE POINTS Commonly seen on the ankle bones, heels, instep and the widest parts of the forefoot. The most common pressure points are the inner ankle bone and little toe area along the 5th metatarsal, 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

7. ARCH PAIN Over-tightening boots that are too big usually leads to excessive downward pressure 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. Providing effective support with footbeds in a correctly sized boot eliminates the need for over-tightening and provides fatigue-reducing support.

SUREFIT AT ELLIS BRIGHAM SUREfit

ELLIS BRIGHAM SUREFIT GUARANTEE

SUREfit is a both a way of fitting boots and a system of training. It’s a process that looks at a skier’s history, individual foot shape and biomechanics, taking into account previous injuries and medical problems, with checks and measures to help make the right choice. It also provides Ellis Brigham staff with the skills and knowledge to ensure comfortable feet and the ideal boots. All the staff in our ski departments are passionate about wintersports. Their enthusiasm for what they are doing will make your time in the shop more enjoyable and ensure you leave with the correct product. This interest in skiing is not enough on its own though. That’s why Ellis Brigham provide the most comprehensive ski hardware training programme in the UK. This involves seminars, coursework, practicals, and one-to-one coaching; focusing on all aspects of boot fitting. Topics covered range from basic anatomy to nerve pathways and cutting edge techniques. Different levels produce constant progression and continued development of skills. 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.

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 3 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. If we are unable to supply a satisfactory fit, then, providing the ski boots have been worn for less than 2 weeks (wear and tear will be taken into account), correct socks and 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. This 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.

USING THE ELLIS BRIGHAM SKI BOOT PAGES Over the following pages is a very special range of ski boots with options for all kinds of skiers from novice, first time buyers up to experts tackling anything the mountain has to offer. We have a selection that covers all kinds of fits and shapes and caters for different budgets. To help simplify the range, the boots are graded by performance and have some key points identified. PERFORMANCE INDICATOR This is a guide to show how the boot will perform and what to expect in terms of the overall fit. Shown as a progression from LEISURE through SPORT up to PERFORMANCE.

LEISURE These models offer extra space, the inner boots use less dense foams and the shell has a higher content of softer plastic for increased comfort. Leisure boots are forgiving and less precise than sport options.

SPORT

PRODUCT INFORMATION Shell: Polyurethane (PU) shells are firm and responsive, suiting better skiers. PU Ether shells are slightly more performance-orientated than PU Esther. Polyethylene (PE) shells are softer and more forgiving, better suited to novice skiers who do not want their ski boot to react to every move they make. PE can be used with elastomeric additives to make lightweight and responsive touring shells. Liner: All adult boots that Ellis Brigham stock use custom-moulding foams. This means they can be heated in store to help the inner boot take the form of individual foot shapes. Flex: This relates to how much effort it takes to bend (flex) the boot forward. Boots with high flex numbers are stiffer, meaning they are suited to skiers with all or some of these characteristics: fast and aggressive style, better skilled, heavier weight. They feel 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: This gives an indication of the space inside the boot and relates to the width of the boot at its widest point, across the forefoot area. The stated size relates to a 26.5cm ski boot.

A great compromise between comfort and performance. The fit is close and their materials supply plenty of support, the liner is made of firmer foams to ensure an even, all-over pressure.

Power strap: They help to close the boot and keep the shin in 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.

PERFORMANCE

Canting: This is really cuff alignment. It is a way of adjusting the cuff angle 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. Usually double canting enables more movement than a boot with single canting.

Performance boots for experienced skiers have less volume and feel firmer. Control and precision are the most important elements, which means no extra room.

FIT An indication of the shape. The fit of the boot is crucial to make the boot work for you. This is just a guide, only a proper fitting provides the information needed to select the perfect boot.

A 100mm last and a well-considered shape hold the foot without squeezing whilst still providing the control needed for good skiing.

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

Rotated / Offset Shell The boot is offset to the lateral (outside) side by 1mm, making it feel more precise and enabling simpler edge changes. A 3° external shell rotation reduces strain on the lower joints with a more comfortable stance. Energy Spring A spring steel component returns the reverse cambered shell back to neutral at the end of each turn, producing a lively feel to the boot.

The 100 takes things a step on from the AdaptEdge 90, by using a PU shell for increased levels of transmission, a stiffer flex for more powerful skiing and a higher-spec liner for improved comfort and control. The Adaptive Fit system remains, with its ability to alter the shell width, as does the tri-injected Energy Frame and its balance of energy transmission and ease of use. Shell: Tri-injected PU shell, PE cuff Liner: HP HeatFit Flex: 90-100 Last width: 102-104mm Power strap: 35mm Cuff alignment: Double Features: Spine-Tech Buckles, Adaptive Fit Technology Sizes: 25.0, 26.0-29.0, 30.0 Code 701209

Tecnica boot features IFS Mobility Cuff – engineered with steel and aluminium, the Mobility Cuff uses a rigid housing that delivers excellent performance for skiing downhill; the release provides an impressive amount of movement for hiking up hill. Interchangeable Footprint – the rubberised sole units can easily be removed and replaced. Either swapping from Dynafit compatible AT units to DIN Alpine units, or vice versa (spare soles sold separately).

Lightweight Structure – triax is 20% lighter than PU and more consistent within a wide range of temperatures. The result is easier hiking with high-performance skiing. Shock Absorbing Heel – for smoother landings and vibration absorption on rougher terrain. Quick Instep An over-injected soft material is placed on the medial (inside) part of the instep area. This makes it easier to get in and out of the boot, especially at lower temperatures, where certain plastics can become stiff.

Lange RX 100 £265

Lange RX 100 Low Volume £265

Fit: medium volume, medium to narrow heel, comfy toebox Keeping it simple is the reason why the RX 100 has been such a success. A mono-injected PU Ether shell provides power and precision. A close fitting rearfoot, 100mm forefoot and roomy toe box means there’s exceptional foot hold without the crushing pressure often associated with performance boots. The 100 flex is firm without being tiring, the liner is custom moulded for the best fit, and there’s plenty of adjustment on the cuff to suit various leg shapes.

Fit: medium to narrow forefoot, medium to narrow heel with great hold, comfy toebox Based on the RX 100, the LV is 3mm narrower and uses a closer fitting liner. This makes it a go-to boot for skiers with slim feet. The mono-injected PU Ether shell is firm for power and precision. The 100 flex cleanly drives skis without being difficult to use; a Thermo liner is custom moulded for improved fit. It also makes a great choice for less experienced skiers searching for a lower volume boot, as adjustable bolts in the rear can reduce the flex.

Salomon Impact 100 CS £270

Atomic Hawx 100 £300

Fit: medium fit all over, good hold, customisable forefoot, average cuff The Impact 100 CS is the benchmark performance boot, it’s the one other brands aspire to and customers request most. This success is a result of matching power and control with an exceptional fit. Custom Shell panels at the forefoot can be heated instore and moulded to match the skier’s foot shape, improving comfort that is boosted further by the heat fitted liner. The performance comes from the World Cup AST PU shell and the support of the Backbone spine. Shell: Bi-material PU shell and cuff Liner: My Custom Fit Sport Flex: 100 Last width: 100-106mm Power strap: 35mm Cuff alignment: Single Features: World Cup AST, Custom Shell, Backbone Sizes: 24.5-29.0, 30.0, 31.5 Code 701204

Fit: medium all over, good heel hold, average cuff The Hawx 100 has been one of our most successful advanced boots for 4 seasons thanks to its blend of comfort, precision and control. i-Flex zones at the forefoot allow the boot to slightly flex, meaning the foot remains in a natural position, the skier stays more balanced and feedback from the skis is heightened. The 100 flex is firm without being overpowering, the PU shell provides great energy transmission and the ASY Pro liner snugly wraps the foot. Shell: Bi-material transparent PU shell and cuff Liner: ASY Pro T2 Flex: 100 Last width: 100mm Power strap: 35mm Cuff alignment: Double Excenter Features: i-Flex, Energy Spring, Rotated / Offset Shell Sizes: 24.5, 25.5-29.0, 30.5 Code 701214

technicalfeatures Salomon boot features Backbone Provides increased power for when skiers are in a rear position while coming out of the turn; gives extra support to the spine of the boot and improves the rebound. Advanced Shell Technology (AST) / World Cup AST AST 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. AST 2nd Skin Shell – thin plastics and closer, more anatomical shapes are used. Precision and sensitivity are increased, weight is decreased. 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 will make the boot 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, as the panels cool they mould 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. Salomon Cushioning System (SCS) SCS 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’. SCS 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. Biovent The 1st Skin Mesh on the inside of the liner efficiently extracts moisture from your socks. The Comfort Foam and Custom Fit Foam use micro-perforations 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.

mail order hotline 0844 372 1010

3-Piece Construction This 3-piece system uses a ‘floating’, ribbed tongue which eliminates distortion and bulging during flexing, meaning the shell and cuff can be close fitting and laterally stiff. 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.

SKI ACCESSORIES

HEATING AND DRYING SYSTEMS Combating cold feet is easy as 1-2-3. First make sure your boots are dry before you put them on. Any dampness at all in the liner will sap the heat straight out of your feet when you put the boots on. Next make sure you are not over-tightening the buckles; boots that are too big feel very cold as you have to force the buckles to hold the foot in place. Unsupported feet that stretch and elongate also feel cold as, again, buckles are over-tightened to reduce movement and stabilise the feet. Thirdly, invest in heated insoles. They’re not expensive, they’re becoming ever-more popular and their gentle heat will really make a difference. We have a range of heating and drying products to help make cold feet a thing of the past. So don’t let cold feet spoil what should be brilliant experiences in the mountains. Hotronic Snapdry £45

Sidas Drywarmer £25

There are few things more miserable on a ski holiday than putting your foot into a cold, damp ski boot. The Snapdry dries and warms boots and gloves using gentle air and heat, ensuring drier, more comfortable feet and hands. It folds away small, it’s multiregion compatible at the flick of a switch (so can be used in North America and Europe) and a built-in timer provides up to 24 hours of drying time.

The Sidas Drywarmer is a drying and warming device for all kinds of footwear, small enough to be pushed right in to the toe box of shoes and boots. Gentle heat warms the boot and gets rid of dampness; UV light reduces bacteria and germs.

Hotronic E3 Footwarmer Power Plus Pack £125 One simple step to warm feet is with Hotronic. The Hotronic E3 Power Plus Pack uses stronger batteries than previous models for more effective warming. The pack includes 2 E3 battery packs, heating elements with self-adhesive covers, and a global recharger – everything you need to start warming your feet.

By replacing an existing Velcro strap, the performance and ski control are maximised. Comfort is improved and the empty space between the boot tongue and shin is eliminated, preventing shin bang, with the Booster also serving as a shock-absorber.

The Eliminator offers a quick way to reduce excess volume in oversized boots or packed-out liners, helping you ski better. It attaches to existing boot tongues, comfortably securing the foot in the boot and relieving shin bite, reducing excess calf pressure and helping skiers with thin calves.

SKI HARDWARE

As the interest in backcountry skiing grows so does the amount and quality of equipment designed especially for it. Wide skis get lighter and increase in stability, boots get more comfortable, easier to use and shave even more weight off, and bindings are lighter, stronger and smoother. This means we select a range of skis, boots and bindings that includes only the very best options. We have equipment for all kinds of adventures off-piste: from lift-accessed powder turns to in-resort backcountry, single day powder missions and traditional multi-day tours. Over the next pages you’ll find the latest equipment to make your time in the backcountry safer, easier and ultimately, more enjoyable.

Scott Crus’Air £640 The Crus’Air will ski any terrain and condition in the search for fresh snow and new challenges, being light enough to skin up and still powerful to rip back down. A construction of wood core and 3D Carbon matrix keeps the weight low and provides the torsional rigidity for strong skiing. The wide dimensions and nose rocker ensure it has the capacity to deal with any depth of snow. Weight: 3.39kg (pair 179cm) Radius: 17m (179cm) Sizes: 169, 179

Being such a light ski makes it great for long, high mountain tours and even expeditions. Weight: 2.67kg (pair 178cm) Radius: 26.3/21.8m (178cm) Sizes: 169, 178

BACKCOUNTRY Marker Duke EPF £340

Skiing Backcountry Terrain – Glenmore Lodge

The Duke has been upgraded for 2012/13 with a broader power platform and 10mm wider mounting pattern. This improves power to the edges and increases performance with wide skis (requires a ski of at least 88mm width). It’s the ideal choice for aggressive freeriders who need a binding with touring capability for reaching the best terrain, and who don’t want to sacrifice any alpine ability. Wide twinconnecting brackets for maximum power, short frame and low, neutral stand height for better balance. 6-16 DIN range (110mm brake). Weight: 2760/2790g (pair) Sizes: 265mm-325mm Code 702292 Sizes: 305mm-365mm Code 702291

As soon as we leave the managed snowfields of a patrolled ski area, our environment changes and we must take the risk of avalanche seriously. Watching skiers blast the steep and deep as we ride the chair it is easy to feel that the whole of the mountain has stable snow. All too often this is a false comfort. The ski area is carefully managed to make it safe. Runs are skied constantly and the layering is broken down so the slope becomes more stable than nearby untouched slopes. But we only need to venture round a corner onto a less frequented slope to find potential trouble. Managing yourself and others in this environment requires us to do two things:

Marker Baron £280 Perfect for the alpine skier who does the occasional tour. The baby brother of the Duke uses the same design just with a slightly lighter weight construction. Wide twin-connecting brackets for maximum power, short frame and low, neutral stand height for better balance. 4-13 DIN. (110mm brake). Weight: 2450/2480g (pair) Sizes: 265mm-325mm Code 702294 Sizes: 305mm-365mm Code 702293

Fritschi Freeride Pro 100mm Brake £360 Fritschi have always made brilliant tour/alpine bindings and the Freeride Pro reinforces this status. PTC technology (Power Transmission Control) allows more power to be transmitted to the ski via stronger, wider hubs at the front and rear, and improved Gliding Technology makes walking more comfortable. Weight: 2190g (pair) Sizes: S, M, XL Code 713015

1. Increase our survival odds by having the right gear and learning how to use it 2. Learn where to ski and where not to ski, in short, learn to avoid avalanches The holy trinity of avalanche gear is for every group member to carry: transceiver, shovel and probe. If someone is buried, then they must be dug out immediately and by those on scene. Waiting for the Mountain Rescue takes too long and victims run out of air. Being practiced with the gear, and the organisation of a companion rescue, is basic training for backcountry addicts.

Getting yourself on a course is an obvious thing. With most avalanche victims triggering the slope themselves, personal responsibility for being in the right place on the mountain is important. Glenmore Lodge, the Scottish National Centre runs a comprehensive range of Off Piste and Ski Touring courses including avalanche awareness (visit www.glenmorelodge.org.uk for details) or just book in and use the Transceiver Training Park. If you are planning to travel on glaciers, then a different set of equipment and skills is becomes necessary, including crevasse rescue kit and becoming proficient at it. As always though, prevention is better than the cure, and there is a real skill to travelling in glacial terrain. If you are interested in glacial travel training in the UK or any of Glenmore Lodge’s Alpine Ski courses, check their website.

Salomon Guardian £320 The Guardian combines Salomon’s proven downhill ability with a convenient walk mode, making it a great choice for BC skiers who like to hike. The low profile chassis increases stability and freeride performance; the twin arms are firm for better power transmission and the overall width is optimised to work with fatter skis.

Weight: 2930/2960g (pair) Sizes: 265mm-320mm Code 702288 Sizes: 305mm-360mm Code 702287

SKI HARDWARE Scarpa Maestrale £440

Photo: Jancsi Hadik, The North Face

The Maestrale has proved a huge success over the last 2 seasons with its light weight, great fit and remarkable performance. The anatomical shape increases comfort and sensitivity, whilst improving the power transmission. The cuff is ventilated for drier, more comfortable liners and the walk mode is truly impressive in its range of movement. They’re QuickStepIn licensed, made from Pebax Renew and use an Intuition liner. The Maestrale needs to be tried on to appreciate just how good it is!

Ski touring boots are becoming ever lighter and better performing. The walk functions operate more efficiently and the downhill skiing ability continues to improve. Choose this kind of boot if you know you’ll be spending plenty of time on the uphill, where things like weight, ease of use and insulation are important. They’re built for use with touring bindings but still do a wide range of skiing from miles of pistes to multi-day tours. Scarpa Maestrale RS £480

Scarpa Gea RS £480

The brand new Maestrale RS takes a proven boot, the Maestrale, and adds extra performance for those tourers and freeriders who work their skis that bit harder. The shell uses a stiffer plastic for more response and the liner has been upgraded to improve precision. But it doesn’t stop there: the tongue has been reinforced for more power, the buckles strengthened, the instep strap is firmer for better retention and the power strap is larger for a snugger fit to the tibia. Weight: 1570g (size 27.0) Sizes: 26.0-30.0 (full sizes only) Code 712025

BACKCOUNTRY Salomon Quest Max 120 £360 Photo: Jancsi Hadik, The North Face

Salomon’s revolutionary new shell makes the Quest Max 120 the freeride boot for anyone looking for superior fit and function. TwinFrame technology and oversized pivots provide transmission and support; the functionality and walk feature of the V-shape spine work with the Contagrip soles to make hiking and skinning easier.

Freeride touring boots offer better downhill performance than classic ski touring models. To achieve this, they use stiffer plastics and different constructions. It does mean the weight and the uphill function will be slightly compromised, but these boots offer the versatility to leave the lifts behind and still benefit from the power of an alpine boot. Depending on the sole unit, they can fit various bindings, including DIN alpine. Choose these boots if you climb uphill primarily for better downhill. They’ll handle all day on piste, as well as longer tours. Atomic Tracker 110 W £350 Freeride boots built for women are hard to find, but with the Tracker 110 W Atomic are set to corner the market.

The excellent Mobility cuff allows the spine to remain firm for responsive skiing and also release to an upright position for walking beyond the lifts. The 100mm last holds the foot closely without sacrificing comfort, and the 3 buckle set-up and Quick Instep ensure getting in and out of the boot is hassle-free. Fitted with Dynafit compatible, touring rubber soles. Weight: 2075g (size 26.5) Sizes: 25.5-29.5 (half sizes only) Code 712027

The Pulse Barryvox is an accurate 3-antenna transceiver that offers users the choice of either a basic or advanced user profile, giving the option to customise the information supplied.
