The Manaslu 2.0 is a versatile backcountry companion built to minimize effort on the ascent and maximize fun on the descent. A light-and-lively Paulownia wood core is reinforced with carbon stringers to provide power and stability in variable or firm conditions. Meanwhile, Dynafit's Scoop Rocker and Flex Tip keep the shovel of the ski floating in deep snow, and initiates turns at the speed of thought. In tight spaces, the mid-fat 90mm waist width transitions from edge to edge with quickness and precision. For big mountain explorers, the Manaslu 2.0 is hard to beat--from January meadow-skipping, to steep May couloirs.
