If there is a kingpin in the Kartel line, it is definitely the Kartel 116. The Bi-radius sidecut and smooth freestyle rocker profile float in the deep but maintain skiability on less than perfect days. More aggressive taper in the tips and tails improve crud busting ability and increase pivotability in soft snow or tight situations. ON3P uses bamboo as a core material across their lineup, and it provides life and pop to these planks while keeping weight low. A deep day ski that is at home popping off of features or blasting through skied out bowls, make sure to stay on this skis good side. It does run a Kartel after all.
