Designed to combine sportiness with easy-handling in a light, nimble ski, the LX 82 returns for the winter of 2015 without a single change from last year. With a ski this good, why bother? Cap construction makes the LX 82 lighter and more relaxed than the burly MX series, but still delivers great grip and carving prowess. With an 82mm waist, this stable all-arounder is aimed at skiers who prefer groomed terrain, but with enough width for the occasional foray into trees or bowls. While that cap construction does add some forgiveness at the tip and tail, a full wood core keeps the ski very snappy and lively, while two layers of titanium offer great response, edge grip, and dampness. The LX 82 initiates a turn with the slightest tip onto edge for smooth, easy arcs at any speed. This is the perfect ski for an all-mountain ripper looking for a luxurious ride from first chair to last.
