LOW WEIGHT - ULTRA-HIGH PERFORMANCE
Bridging the gap between fat, floaty powder skis and super light mountaineering skis. The FINDr 102 is more freeride inspired than the 94 and 86 with a lower camber and longer tip and tail rises.
Note this is a past season product. Once this is gone it's never coming back.
Je n'ai pas encore essayé mes skis.
Je ne trouve aucune marque indiquant l'emplacement proposé par G3 pour installer mes fixations. Est-ce que vous pouvez m'aider et m'informer de cet emplacement.
For reference I am 200 lbs, 6' 1". I ski black runs at resorts no problem. My previous touring skis have been Line Sir Francis Bacons, Rossignol Soul 7, and G3 Zenoxides. I was getting a new touring setup and really wanted something great, since I really didn't like the Zenoxides. During my research the Findrs had no bad reviews and mostly raving reviews. They had similar design to the Volkl BMT series, which I tried once and loved. Ultimately I decided on these because of the price and weight. I ended up going with the 184(I usually ski 190's) with Ion LT 12 bindings. After 3 tours I have to say that they have exceeded my expectations. The polyurethane sidewall is everything it is cracked up to be, I skied an ice sheet my last tour and the chattering was to a minimum. These are a well rounded ski, not necessarily excelling at powder. They lack the excessive rocker that most dedicated powder skis have, so they do tend to dive a bit if you lean forward. However, this pays off in the skin track since having more traditional camber will mean more surface area touching in the skin track. Overall I really enjoy them and am glad I sized down with them. I would say if you are looking for one ski in all conditions, I would take this over and DPS, BD, or Voile ski for a quiver ski.
Lots of ski companies try and say their touring skis are damp. After skiing several other touring skis over the years (mostly BD and Blizzard), I can confidentially say that the PU sidewalls on these skis actually make it a damp ski to dramatically minimize chatter on hard snow.
When I'm not neck deep in pow and wanting something fatter on my feet, the Findr is the way to go. They are a great width and stiffness for variable spring conditions, yet still playful and not so stiff that they are hard work to ski.

I tested and skied on the FINDr 102 last year in CO and AK. In a time of ultra light and or rockered skis, the FINDr 102 is more of a hard charging traditional ski. I used it in pow, corn, and breakable from steep 14ners in CO to firm low tide conditions in Valdez.
More of a ski for the technician, the FINDr 102 gets it done.
