THE LOCATOR SERIES

There’s an all new archetype for touring skis built around downhill performance.


The Locator Series is designed for adventures beyond the ropes where untouched powder and steep lines await. Combining phenomenal performance characteristics with super light weights, the four skis in this collection are the ultimate tools explore the mountains anywhere your legs, lungs and willpower can take you. Locator Series skis are balanced to excel on the up and the down in the enormous range of conditions found in the backcountry with float, stability and versatility at weights that won’t sap the energy needed to charge the descents. It’s okay to draw outside the lines

SIDECUT

With a radius of 20-24m, the locator skis have a sidecut that allows the ski to pivot easily, not feel twitchy, and provide incredible stability. Smooth lines throughout make for a predictable feeling no matter the snow type.

ROCKER / CAMBER

We focused on a low camber pocket to provide grip where its needed, but still allowing the ski to have a loose feeling in softer conditions. Rocker lines are “low and slow” which when coupled with the longer radius this provides perfect balance in the ski

AR Bat Tail

This modern surf inspired tail shape allows skin clips to self center, making it impossible for a skin to slip off.

CARUBA CORE

Our highest performing, lightest weight wood core. Sustainable as regrowth is up to 5 times faster than poplar.

AR75 Sidewall

Reduces weight in the tip/tail but provides ultimate grip underfoot.

Full Carbon Build

With ti binding enforcement.45 degree x-ply carbon fiber used for lightweight strength without giving up edge grip, ti binding enforcement for power.

The big-mountain powder ski for hard-charging, human-powered adventures.

LOCATOR 112

When deep powder is in the forecast and big terrain is on the menu, reach for the Locator 112. With a modern shape optimized for huge float and high speeds thanks to a longer radius and lower profile camber and rocker, the big dog of the Locator Series is primed for those dream days when everything lines up. A touring-focused design with a lightweight construction means even though the 112 devours descents it’s efficient on the uptrack and serves up no-nonsense performance for when the backcountry demands your ultimate attention. That’s a good thing because chances are you’re going to want to take another lap.
