A gateway product to the alpine touring world, the Ibex 78 is the perfect ski to promote fast progression and designed for skiers taking a minimalist approach.
New for 2018, the Ibex 78 is designed for those just entering the world of alpine touring. It’s modest 78mm waist width is the perfect platform to start on, and the lightweight Laminated Woodcore promotes effortless ascents while still maintaining a solid underfoot feel on the way down. State of the art Bridge Technology keeps weight to a minimum while the unique shape prevents snow from sticking to the top of the ski creating additional drag. The addition of mountain rocker makes for easy and effortless descents at all speeds.
Bridge technology reduces weight and provides torsional stability and unparalleled power transfer to the edges. Innovative and unique 3D shape improves snow shedding and the wood core profile is reinforced with Vapor Tip inserts for smooth ride and further weight reduction.
Mountain Rocker Profile
Mountain Rocker profile incorprates moderate tip and tail rocker for better flotation, easier turn initiation and versatility in varied snow conditions. Combined with a moderate amount of camber underfoot, Mountain Rocker also delivers great precision and stability on groomed slopes.
This tip-to-tail Laminated Woodcore is specially shaped for each model and size. Using different wood types in various combinations allows for the adjustment of the flex pattern for different types of performance. This extremely responsive and highly durable wood core transmits power directly to the edges and excels in a variety of conditions.
Vapor inserts are advanced composites integrated into the tip and tail area of the ski‘s core. These inserts reduce weight and vibration, dramatically improving stability and ensuring a smooth ride even in the most demanding conditions.
Fiberglass reinforcement optimizes the flex pattern and enhances torsional rigidity of the ski. The fiberglass is positioned either above or below the ski core and improves a skis structual integrity.
The CYA plate is compatible with all commercial bindings and is reinforced with aluminum for safe and secure mounting.
