Vantage X 80 CTI Ski + Warden 13 Binding
The Vantage X 80 CTI Ski + Warden 13 Binding is a hard-charging package with a penchant for perfectly groomed trails, but won't turn its nose up to softer snow, either. Its 80 millimeter waist can handle a few inches of fresh, with slight rocker in the tip to make plowing through softer snow easier. Underfoot camber and a flat tail gets you into your next turn and keeps you there until you're ready to come out, giving a powerful, energetic feeling in the initiation and exit of each turn.
An ash and poplar wood core is to thank for the Vantage's energetic yet impressively damp feel, with full-length carbon mesh to boost its strength and power without tacking on the ounces. Titanal sandwiches the core to add a solid wall to absorb any excess vibrations and provide a stiff, powerful, torsionally stable ride to the party.

Recommended Sizing Guide
Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
