Ski: DPS Cassiar 95 Tour1
Boot: Scarpa F1
Binding: Atomic Backland
As a general rule in 2018, the more time you spend in the backcountry, the more you appreciate lightweight gear. However, it hasn’t always been this way. Modern touring equipment delivers the confidence inspiring performance you want and need in the backcountry, all at a weight you wouldn’t believe a decade ago. With this package you will not only be able to ski more laps, but your legs will be fresher for that coveted descent!
Let’s start with the planks. The guys over at DPS are known to nerd out when it comes to constructing skis and their lightweight Cassiar Tour1 is no exception. Weighing in at a slender 1375 grams (178cm), but maintaining its stiffness with carbon fiber, this ski is light and strong. They really nailed the shape too. 95mm underfoot is narrow enough to reduce drag on the skin track but wide enough to help you float on the deepest of days. Camber underfoot distributes energy along the length of the ski along coupled with a long (and strong) effective edge gives you the control you need when conditions aren’t as soft. Long story short, this ski is super light but still has the ability to handle any condition the backcountry throws at it.
For the boot I went with the Scarpa F1 for three reasons: uphill ability, downhill performance, and overall comfort. 62 degrees of racelike cuff articulation and a weight of 1230g (size 27) gives an unbelievable amount of freedom on the uphill. When it’s time to ski, enjoy a speedy transition and comfortable feet thanks to Scarpa’s Intuition liner. The F1’s progressive flex is more than capable and will have you smiling ear to ear on the downhill. In a backcountry setting the F1 delivers no matter how aggressive the skier.
To round out this lightweight but capable package is the Atomic Backland Binding. Built with a simple metal on metal interface, fixed retention ‘U’ springs, and a sensical hole pattern, this binding gets the job done at a weight of 297g. Whether you’re skiing steep couloirs or bottomless pow you need to have confidence in your binding, the Backland achieves that goal.
So If you’re looking for that dedicated backcountry setup that can handle it all at a weight that will keep you skiing all day, this setup might just be the perfect one for you. If you would like to alter this setup or design your own email us at email@example.com
