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 to 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.

Safety in the Backcountry

The backcountry can provide some of the most inspiring experiences you’ll ever have on snow. Exploring the mountains with a crew of friends to hunt steep lines, tour for untouched powder or build a jump to session into soft landings opens your eyes to a new vision of the sport. It’s easy to understand why more skiers are venturing into the backcountry each season, but the mountains always demand respect. When you enter backcountry terrain, you’re responsible for the decisions you make and for the safety of yourself and your ski partners.

Locator 112

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

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.
