Diverse and super light: TheOnly LT (light version)Our allmountain freeride ski for Alpine or Telemark is available in a super light version. The Only LT as for "light" has the same allmountain capabilities as TheOnly, the same dimensions, but weighs about 300-400 grams less per ski. This reduction in weight is achieved by a new construction with a wood core from balsa with flax fibre enforcements, a different basalt fibre sandwich belt, and lighter wood for the veneer. The skis surface is, in difference to TheOnly, coated with biological varnish based on pine resin - the skis' light and bright maple top sheet and the rigid robinia wood side walls are thus extremely tough and scratch resistant. In addition, TheOnly LT has now a a bigger tip and tail rocker, making it very easy to ski even in the most difficult snow conditions, while the high torsion and the dampening of TheOnly have been kept in this LT version. Available in three lengths with widths under foot of 96 and 104mm.
Freeride ski 'Overgrown'The Overgrown is a big mountain machine with true all mountain capabilities. The 10mm camber makes the ski agile in edge changes on piste, the wide shovel delivers float in powder, and it is lighter than other skis in this dimension so take it for touring as well.
