No matter what the conditions or terrain, get after it both on- and off-piste with the G3 Women's Cake 100 Ski. Honoring the shape of G3's all-time most popular women's ski, the former Zest got more than just a facelift and a new name. The Cake's new PowerLight construction shaves weight and gives this popular ski even more spunk. Crowned with G3's EarlyRise 3 profile, the Cake features an early rise tip and tail with regular camber underfoot to ensure fun, stable turns in any snow conditions. Its regular camber underfoot provides responsive turning in hardpack, supplies quick, on-edge arcs in techy terrain, and allows you to carve trenches down groomers. Thanks to the Cake's PowerLight construction, this all-mountain ripper comes stacked with an ABS/TPU sidewall for bomber construction and durability while its Paulownia and poplar wood core offers a light yet strong tip to tail. With two sheets of titanal aluminum to cut down on chatter and vibration and two layers of tri-axial glass for torsion and flex, the Cake provides a smooth ride on groomers, hardpack, snow snow, ankle-deep pow, and through chunder. G3 also gave this versatile plank Rockwell C48 steel edges for sharpness and strength while a P-Tex 2000 Electra base supplies durability, speed, and wax absorption. So whatever the terrain or snow condition feel confident and secure knowing you have just the right tool for a wickedly fun day on the slopes or in the backcountry.
Building on it's popularity from last season, and with new frosting on the top-sheet, the G3 Cake 110 skis, for women, still turn and tour sweetly. The 110 mm waisted, deeper powder-oriented Cake has an early rise tip profile that keeps you out of trouble, and initiates turns easily. The semi-cap construction, with a sheet of Titanal aluminum, makes the Cake stable and turn smoothly in, less-than-optimal choppy conditions. Ultralight, semi-cap construction with dual density ABS/TPU sidewall lessens high-speed wobble Progressive camber with Early Rise 3, similar to Early Rise 2.5 but with a shorter running surface, has a longer and higher rise in both the tip and tail of the ski. This yields responsive turning in hard snow and further improves performance in softer snow.
Ladies, say hello to your new best friend. With a lofty 110 mm underfoot and very progressive camber line, the G3 Cake easily outskis its competition on deep snow descents. Meanwhile the ultralight semi-cap construction and low mass tip shave valuable ounces to enhance this skis tourability, without sacrificing performance. Yes, you can have your Cake and eat it too.
Frontcountry to back, the G3 Cake 100 telemark/randonee skis are the brand's most versatile women's skis. They're ready and willing to show you a good time in powder and on hardpack. Fun and stable turns in any type of snow give the Cake 100 skis the one-ski-quiver reputation that they deserve. PowerLight construction uses a light, strong paulownia/poplar wood core between sheets of 7000-series titanal aluminum and a triaxial weave of fiberglass for torsion and flex. ABS plastic and thermoplastic urethane sidewalls stand up to impacts and give the skis a lot of pop when you're coming out of turns. EarlyRise 2.5 tips offer excellent flotation and easy steering, while the camber underfoot maintains strong edge contact to bite into snow when you're turning. Glossy nylon topsheets keep snow from building up on the tops of the skis. Durable steel edges stand up to regular use and dig into hard icy slopes. The G3 Cake 100 telemark/randonee skis have P-Tex 2000 Electra bases that are very durable and absorb wax well for good glide. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo.
