Not all skis can, or should, be powder-crushing monsters, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be able to handle their business on whatever snow and terrain the backcountry has to offer. G3's Synapse Carbon 92 Ski might be the smallest and lightest in the Synapse family, but it can handle hardpack, crud, ice, and powder--the grab bag of conditions that you'll find on any given day in the alpine--and that's just the way G3 wanted it. At well under six pounds per pair, the Synapse makes short work of skin tracks, bootpacks, and long alpine approaches, but does so without compromising performance on the descent. It has a light, energetic poplar and paulownia wood core that's laid up with two sheets of differently woven carbon fiber to keep it stiff enough to handle rough snow, with ABS and TPU sidewalls to direct plenty of power to the burly steel edges when things get a little dicey. In addition to the carbon fiber, the Synapse keeps weight down via its Stealth Razor profile, which keeps the core thinner near the edges, reducing weight where possible without sacrificing durability and stiffness. The shape of the Synapse is also worth discussing, as it features a highly rockered tip, minimally cambered section underfoot, and early rise tail that provides a supreme combination of float in the deep and edge grip on firm snow, with equal measures of surfiness and directional feel. The base is made of tough P-Tex 2000 Electra to handle the occasional ding, and there's even a Titanal plate under the binding zone to ensure rugged mounts and serious binding retention, because stepping out of a shoe in a no-fall zone is the last thing you want.
Light, Agile and commanding. The Synapse Carbon 92 provides precision edge control and the lightweight structure to go for distant and obscure peaks. The Synapse Carbon 92 is the balance between edge control and float. A rockered tip, camber underfoot and a low rise tail give the ski the ability to rise on top of soft snow while the traditional camber and 18 meter turn radius provide great dexterity. The mix of poplar and paulownia hardwoods give the ski a distinct pop and playfulness while two sets of carbon laminates add torsional stiffness for a balanced feel. Being 92mm underfoot gives the Synapse fantastic edge to edge transfer while the low rise tail lets the rider execute the end of the turn with power. Touring distant peaks or just having the need to carve, the Synapse Carbon 92 performs. The core of the Synapse starts with a poplar and paulownia blend. The combination of these hardwoods gives the ski a fun and playful flex. To excel in the backcountry, quadraxial and triaxial carbon fiber laminates are used. These help by increasing the torsional stiffness and keeping the ski light. A titanal binding plate is added for extra durability and drive from the binding mount. Lastly, ABS/TPU sidewalls are used for strength and more torsional stiffness.
The narrowest and lightest of the Synapse family, the G3 Synapse 92 skis, ironically, require very little brain work to operate; they turn without thinking and tour like they don't even exist. The superlight carbon/fiberglass/wood lay-up is protected by a titanal binding plate and ABS sidewalls making a nimble rocket for off and on piste conditions. -- Quadraxial and triaxial carbon-fiber laminates-- Freeride Rocker tip and Stealth early-rise tail-- Flat camber underfoot-- Poplar and paulownia wood core-- Titanal binding-mount plate-- Stealth Razor edge profile and ABS/TPU sidewalls-- Rockwell C48 steel edges-- P-Tex 2000 Electra sintered base
