The flex pattern of the northwest is progressive, meaning that a playful tip and tail blends with a stiff underfoot platform. This creates a playful yet stable ski that can handle anything you throw at it. A long effective edge, and a radius of 23m means that the NW will respond exceptionally at high speed. The softer tip and tail combined with a hybrid rocker profile allows the ski to release when needed and remain nimble in tight terrain.
Designed to be versatile, the NW116 is designed to be the perfect ski for resort rippers that want to have a more powder-orientated everyday ski. The generous 116mm underfoot platform really excels in deep snow, allows for a surfy ride and is stable in damp coastal concrete through to interior BC blower pow. The NW116 uses the same design principles as its smaller alternatives, the NW100 & NW110 keeping it just as versatile, but more suited to those who prefer a large base underfoot.
