The G3 Manhattan telemark/randonee skis have snappy tails and progressive camber to let you rip at the resort, while 108mm waists mean they're super solid through deep snow. PowerRide construction features a 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 Manhattan 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.
Back for another year of hard-charging touring, G3's Manhattan gets an Advanced EarlyRise 2.5 face-lift that gives the tip & tail some rocker without changing the ride. Rail turns at the resort or bust through crunchy crusts with the semi-wide profile and Sandwich+ construction.

You'll take Manhattan. And toss it aside for the snow-filled mountains every time on the G3 Manhattan Ski. It doesn't matter what mountains, either, as long as they have deep pow to float upon with the 108-millimeter waist, steep chutes to rail down on its razor-like edge, and an accessible route to climb with its light weight. Perhaps you would, however, celebrate with Manhattan the drink post-shred.
