Speed is key when you're knocking out dawn patrols before work--the faster you get up, the more turns you can get in before you make it to your desk. The widest ski in Black Diamond's new Route series, the Route 105 strikes an all-time balance of uphill performance and downhill shreddage. The 105mm waist and rockered profile crush Rocky Mountain pow, and camber underfoot lets you blast through cruddy Northwest sludge no problem. Black Diamond constructed its Route series with a poplar wood core, shedding weight without sacrificing durability while providing springy, playful pop. The pre-preg fiberglass layup adds torsional stiffness to keep the ski steady at high speeds and cuts chatter for a smooth ride down. The sandwich construction increases power and stability on the downhill, so you won't get tossed around if you end up bombing lift-accessed runs when avy conditions spike.
