Vanguard Alpine Touring Ski
When the powder is piling up and big lines are in play, reach for the Majesty Vanguard. With an aggressive big-mountain design, wide 118mm waist, and directional twin shape, the Vanguard is an adept big-mountain, powder-surfing platform that aggressive freeskiers will appreciate. The new 4R sidecut was shaped to ease turn initiation while maintaining crucial stability while skiing fast. Speaking of stability, Majesty added layers of triaxial fiberglass, carbon, and aramid fibers to keep the vanguard relatively stiff without adding too much unnecessary weight.
- A powder-surfing, big-mountain ski with progressive shape
- 4R sidecut eases turn initiation while remaining stable at speed
- Tip and tail rocker with camber underfoot for versatility
- Carbon/aramid and fiberglass add torsional stiffness
- Paulownia and poplar wood core is lively yet stable
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.
