Features of the La Sportiva Vapor Nano Ski Carbon Nano construction Ultra durable P-Tex 5000 bases with minimal die-cut inlays Unparalleled torsional rigidity Unparalleled durability and lifespan Tip and tail attachment holes, flat/notched tail
The sound of soft snow canvassing the backcountry is enough to wake you for a dawn patrol, and La Sportiva's Vapor Nano Ski stays light on your foot so reach the summit by sunrise. Each ski weighs less than three pounds, which is especially phenomenal given the mid-fat 105mm waist. A waist with this width has an undeniable penchant for powder, but there's enough camber to help you get through the occasional firm patch. La Sportiva updated the Vapor Nano with a tapered tip rocker that promises to slice through soft snow like a dream. The rocker has a rounder shape for a surfier feel. La Sportiva kept the ultralight construction as previous models. Carbon fibers reinforce carbon nanotubes to keep the ski's Kevlar-woven core surprisingly stiff and ridiculously light. Why break something that doesn't need fixing'
