Good grip on hard snow to progress to skidded turns.
Moderate. Quick edge to edge transfer for series of short turns.
Turn radius 12.5 m: Good stability in skidded and sliding turns.
Easy to learn
Supports progress thanks to adaptability to different turn radiuses.
The BOOST 500 ski is fairly narrow at the waist, enabling faster transitions from edge to edge to initiate turns more easily.
It enables good grip on hard snow, enabling control of speed. It is tolerant but reassuring to support progress from skidded to sliding turns. The aim is pleasure in managing turns and progress.
Shellfiber Tec: made with a composite core, fibreglass casing from edge to edge for good pressure transfer.
Tyrolia bindings, model SLR 10, Din 3 to 10. Fits ski boots with sole length between 259 mm and 338 mm.
Tip cap to reduce shocks on the tip. Structured topsheet for improved durability.
Waxed and sharpened skis, ready to use. Edge sharpened to 89°.
WHAT IS CAMBER?
When placing a ski on the ground, its points of contact are found near the tip and tail, whereas the middle of the ski (under the bindings) is slightly raised. This is the camber. The longer and higher the camber, the greater the grip and more responsive the ski. The lower the camber, the more tolerant and manageable the ski.
WHAT IS ROCKER?
On a "rocker" ski, the tip, and sometimes the heel, comes off the ground much sooner than with a cambered ski: this has the effect of moving the contact points toward the centre of the ski. The surface of the ski in contact with the snow is shortened and offers manoeuvrability and lift in soft snow. When taking corners, the edge length provides more grip on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the better the handling of the ski.

Our after-skiing advice:
After a long day of skiing, this is what you need to do to guarantee your ski's long life:
* Wipe your edges with a rag at the end of the day to prevent rusting.
* Use ski ties to prevent the soles from rubbing against each other.
* Store your skis in a dry place, away from sunlight.
