scott-the-ski-2016-the-ski-w16239670-avsSo good it doesn’t need a name, The Ski from Scott is the brand’s most versatile all-mountain ski that’s all about the details. One of its main features is Scott’s exclusive 3Dimensional sidecut, which means the tip, tail and underfoot areas of the ski all have their own separate radius. This makes for seriously good handling, edge control and stability, resulting in cruisy, effortless turns.

The Elliptical (curved on top) full wood core is specially shaped to direct power into the edges during turns for amazing grip and lively stiffness. This core also travels the length of the ski, providing a natural, stable flex that makes The Ski ultra-reliable and consistent in all conditions.

The Ski features Scott’s Pro Tip rocker, which is a slight early rise in the nose for a little extra float and manoeuvrability in the powder, with traditional camber in the rest of the ski for the best of both worlds. The same goes with waist widths, which range from 88 to 93mm. When you add this to the other features, you have a ski that doesn’t specialise in anything, but can handle all terrains with stability, agility and confidence – perfect for an intermediate or advanced skier who wants one ski for everything, that’s equally as at home cruising as it is charging.
