One trend we noticed at this year’s Outdoor Retailer? Ski companies are lovin’ the “lightweight freeride” ski—those mid-fat pow-lovers that can rip resort off-piste or heli lines but are light enough to be touring options. The lineup of 2020 Icelantic skis has one of those: the new Natural 111. Oh, and as usual, they absolutely crush the topsheet game.
Icelantic rounds out its women’s collection for next season by adding a new ski: the Riveter 85 and 95. It’s more or less the love-child of the Maiden and the Oracle, with a thinner profile and more flex than the latter. Poplar in the core makes for strength on piste or in variable snow, making the Riveter the women’s equivalent of the Pioneer.
- New Natural 111 to accompany the narrower Natural 101. All Paulownia in the cores of Icey’s backcountry skis.
- New Mystic 107 women’s version to match the Mystic 97.
- All-new women’s lineup of all-mountain skis: the Riveter 85 and 95.
- New Oracle 78 for a more accessible entry to the Oracle line.
- New (and sick!) topsheets for the Nomad and Maiden series, along with an updated core to lighten the skis up.
- New Pioneer 86 with a powerful poplar core.
