Playfully named “The Slacker,” this is the first backcountry brainchild from Jason Levinthal. The self-proclaimed “least nerdy touring ski in the world” is built with a lightweight aspen wood core, and reinforced with maple and carbon stringers to add extra pop and plenty of dampening for a beautifully balanced feel on the ride down. With a deep tip rocker and a supple flex, the Slacker will have you surfing through the deep like Mick Fanning rides Pipeline. All this at a weight that will have you beating your lazy buddies to the top of the skin track. Just leave the spandex at home, would ya?
FREESKIER tester thoughts:
“Classic J skis reliability with a balanced feel underfoot—in a touring ski? This big momma is truly primed for the down but does well enough on the up to get you where you need to go.”
