The RC ONE 78 GT + RSW10 uses the following technologies:
Wood Core with double Titanal shell, reinforced with Air Carbon. Sure and precise edge grip and extremely smooth running as a result.
The shorter contact length of the ski ensures that turn initiation is easier and requires less effort.
Newly introduced lightweight nonwoven fabric with an amazing strength-to-weight ratio and excellent durability adds strength and smoothness in ski construction.
Wood core combined with ABS sidewalls in a classic Sandwich Construction for balanced flex and perfect rebound.
Sintered bases have exceptional waxing properties and a very long service life.
The Triple Radius shape enables better control and power transfer throughout the entire turn.
This technology uses a mix of specialized materials in the critical shovel section of the ski to reduce mass. This enables much easier steering and turn initiation as well as minimizing vibration and chattering.
New two-part Powerrail system with reduced weight and better power transfer.
Great all mountain ski for mid-west and out west and
First time out with these skis was a Wisconsin blizzard and about 4" of snow on top of ice. They carved and sliced through the built-up crud and ice beneath the new fallen snow. A month later was at WP for 3 days of skiing with temps in low teens to low 30's at base and fresh snow every evening. Hammered some nice long groomers on the front side of WP and after finding the 'sweet spot' of the skis then hit some steeps sprinkled with moguls on MJ. Very responsive ski in the bumps for the length (173cm) I had and was able to smear the top of the moguls and not get trapped in the downhill side/trench of the moguls. The BAFATEX at the shovel allowed me to engage the turn easily and was able to release the turn and not fight it because of the BAFETEX in the tail. Got into some nice technical skiing in Wildwood Glade as well as some tighter trees on Calypso. Was in nearly 12" of powder at times and did not feel the ski was sluggish partly due to the underfoot width. In Parseen Bowl did some drop-ins to Fireberry Glade and Lupin and though a kick turn was not mandatory, was glad for the BAFATEX tail as it came around nicely and didn't force me to do a run out. Am 5' 10" and weigh about 185 pounds. Have skied for over 60 years on just about every length from 210cm down to 158cm and in college raced on Head 360's 190cm and Atomic Supremes 193cm. My ideal ski length, according to the 'charts' is about 165cm but have found the 173cm has worked for me skiing the mid-west and 'Out West'.David Olsen
Great front side ski
Great front side carver foe East coast skiing especially when dealing with the mediocre conditions of a bad snow year. Great on ice and can carve trenches on a soft corduroy day. I skied them in 3” of fresh snow and they were the perfect choice for the day. Demo a pair. You won’t be disappointedJack
