In her own way the BrightSide is as irritatingly likeable as the SideKick. Does she always smile like that? Hard to when you can’t find a slope or condition you can’t tame. Quicker and more energetic than her SideKick, the Brightside is 90mm underfoot and has two sheets of metal that give her a smooth, supple accuracy. These skis were part of a demo fleet and bear marks form use. Nevertheless they are in excellent condition and ready for immediate use.
The telemark turn is a thing of grace; your telemark binding should be just as refined. Designed to fit smaller boot sizes. The TARGA elle, designed with a durable stainless steel toe plate.
Keep on the Brightside of life:
ALL TERRAIN ROCKER
ROCKER: Easy initiation, versatility, agility
CAMBER: Control, edge hold, rebound
All-Terrain Rocker features an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions.
Simply put, All-Terrain Rocker offers versatility and ease in all snow conditions.
Progressive sidecut is a combination of two different radii, or sidecuts, that enhance the versatility of wider-waist skis. Standard sidecut theory is based on using a single radius. This works well on narrower skis, but becomes overpowering on wider skis, especially in variable conditions. The use of progressive sidecut on wider-waist skis guarantees improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance.
BIO CORE TECH
For backcountry skiers conscious of their caloric and environmental output, our Adventure skis use a blended core of aspen, bamboo, and Paulownia, (a reforestation plantation tree similar to bamboo) that has consistent density, great strength-to-weight ratio, and fast-growth carbon-sequestration. The core is just one component of the ski, but the result is 15% weight savings over our traditional fir/aspen cores and a lessened footprint, reducing the impact of the ski on you and the winter world.
TIP AND TAIL HOLES
Holes in the tip and tail are not only the attachments points for K2 skins, but they also fit the functional needs of a backcountry skier including the ability to build a rescue sled or construct various ski anchors. The holes are equipped with removable plugs.
All Adventure skis come with flat tails, providing backcountry utility by allowing you to plunge the tails easily into firm snow.
SKIN CLIP ARC
The tails of our Adventure skis are designed with a concave notch to ensure that the skin clip, regardless of size or skin brand, stays securely centered on the tail.
This wider-waisted construction combines the accuracy and power performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight and smooth turn initiation of cap construction.
Weight reduction is paramount in the BackSide model line. We've tooled a BackSide specific TNC Metal Laminate Construction that lessens weight wile providing an accurate and responsive feel.
