Spring time is often when you pick out bigger objectives and more technical descents for longer days in the backcountry. On days like these you want a lightweight ski that will perform consistently and predictably on the way down. These skis were developed with Kilian Jornet to meet his demands for more extreme alpinist ski mountaineering, including first descents.
The Ultimate 78 is built with the same technology as the prodium grabbing 65 but with just a little more to it for those descents that grab your full attention and get your heart racing. The Ultimate 78‚s feature the All Mountain Rocker, Lite Woodcore and Corbond Laminate Reinforcements.

This new package, the skis, skins and boots, have improved the safety, ease and fun of skinning to an extent that this activity is now one of my favorite activities - instead of the risk-ridden heavy chore that it was on my old set. I highly recommend these skis, skins and boots.
Thank you for the guidance and for selling these to me. Also, thank you for adjusting the boots forward. The first setting made downhill very challenging, the current setting is wonderful. The only aspect of this set up that is still a little tricky for me it getting out of the bindings at the bottom of the hill. I۪m sure experience will smooth that out.
Thanks for the help, thanks for asking, and have a great spring.
