La Sportiva Hang5
Here's what other sites are saying:
La Sportiva's Hang5 is the big daddy of the Hi5 and built for effortlessly floating powder turns and surfing through trees at high speed. The big mountain sidecut is stable at speed while the massive tip rocker and the mini-rocker tail make the Hang5 turn on a dime. If youre looking for a lightweight powder machine that is at home on steeps and technical terrain then look no further, the Hang5 is your tool.
Ski-mountaineering isn't always about edging your way down sketchy, sun-baked slopes; sometimes it's all about the powder. On the days when it is about the pow, make sure the La Sportiva Hang5 Alpine Touring Ski is strapped to your foot. With 117mm underfoot, 145mm in the tip, and a rocker/camber profile, the Hang5 is built to float like a boat in deep backcountry powder. Add in the lightweight design and multifunctional holes in the tip and tail, and you have a ski that is ready for big, remote mountains and epic powder days.
The Hang5 Ski from La Sportiva is a big-mountain poacher that weaves through tree with ease and floats on powder like whipped butter. The 115mm underfoot is built on a lightweight paulownia wood core with ABS sidewall construction with carbon fiber and fiberglass laminates for stiffness and control. Aggressive side-cut is stable at high speeds, and the massive tip rocker and mini-rocker tail allow you to make super-quick, tight turns. Holes in the tip and tail for easy skin attachment. 30% rocker, 70% camber.
