VAPOR NANO

Price: $1200

State-of-the-art Carbon Nanotube Construction that allows for the lightest possible weight, with the best torsional rigidity packaged in a modern fat waisted backcountry ski

The Vapor Nano represents the evolution of our Five series ski line and debuts our all new carbon nano ski construction technology. We challenged ourselves to develop a modern fat waisted backcountry ski  in the mythical 1 kilo range. What we came up with is a breakthrough in lightweight ski design using state-of-the-art carbon nano construction. The Vapor features an aggressive rocker profile in the tip and a flat tailed ski mountaineering versatile tail. At 1200 grams (180cm) the Vapor Nano is featherweight made in the usa high-technology for the discerning backcountry skier with an eye toward big mountain descents in technical terrain.

Skis currently in the Outside van test garage That have all been flogged and road viciously
La Sportiva Carbon Nano
Volie Charger BC
Volie Vector BC
Rosignol Soul 7
Rosingnol Sqaud 7
Rosingol Super 7
K2 annex 98
Black Dimond Carbon Mega watt

After a full season on most of these skis and a spring on the La sportive Carbon NANO. The quiver has been shuffled this way. IF I have to walk up HILL at all the La Sportiva is my only choice. It slays POW even NW POW that is a bit heavy like the girl next store. But DAM you love her and she always delivers. For resort it is K2 annex or the SOUL 7. For Cat skiing it is the Sqaud 7. For skiing off my sled it is the Carbon MEGA watt. For low angle cross country dog walking in the low lands the Volie BC skis are a treat since they need no skin to win. But if I have to move my 46 year old legs up hills I will only use the CARBON NANO. So light yet so SOLID I do not understand how this happens?? Maybe there is truth to the carbon tubes inside. One thing for sure all Outside van people love TUBES
