Dynafit Manaslu Freeride Touring Skis
The award winning Dynafit Manaslu Freeride Touring Ski has received universal praise from backcountry skiers. This lightweight backcountry ski is a true backcountry quiver-of-one. The rockered tip and traditional camber design offer edge hold and soft snow performance that few lightweight skis can match. It is not the widest ski on the block, but it makes short work of all but the most epic days, and it still has the ability to inspire confidence in less than ideal snow conditions. The tip rocker and lightweight Paulownia wood core make the Manaslu an uphill machine. The Manaslu comes with inserts designed to accept the Dynafit ski binding. Together with the Dynafit binding, the Manaslu is the ideal match for any dedicated backcountry skier. Add the pre-cut Dynafit skins, and youve got the killer mid-fat touring set-up.

Great BC Ski
I've been touring in the Wasatch for 5 years and these skis are my first upgrade to my kit since I started. The inserts make them easy to mount yourself with Dynafit bindings. I've got a few days on them and I am impressed with how good these ski are. The rocker tip really helps keep the tips up in heavier spring powder. The wide waist keeps me more on top. They are light enough for big tours, but they'll blast through old tracks and crud and provide a very stable ride. They don't handle hardpack well at the resort, but that's not why you'd buy them.

Love these Skis!
I wasn't sure what to expect with such a lightweight ski. After skinning up the mountain I was pleasantly surprised how well these skis felt in the powder (floaty) and how firm they felt in the crud (stable). I would highly recommend these skis for getting out into the backcountry
