Based on the same modern geometry as Second Opinion 108, but with more powerful titanal construction. This model suits skiers that like the playful shape of Opinion, but are looking for a more dampened feeling, more edge grip and to be able to ski harder in more demanding snow conditions.
The construction of Opinion 108 Reload is a further development of the very popular model Opinion 108 Charger. To this winter, the ski has a more powerful wood core made of snappy poplar wood and stable beech wood. At the same time, we have decreased the width of the two layers of titanal. The race rubber dampening in tip and tail is still there to minimize vibrations.
The new construction remains dampened and stable in high speed. However, we have decided to decrease the torsional stiffness in the tip and tail section of the ski. This makes it easier when skiing the trees and less aggressive on edge in varying offpiste conditions such as wind-packed snow. The harmonious tapered tip and tail, combined with the long low-rise rocker profile, creates fantastic floatation in powder and makes them easy to manoeuvre in all conditions.
Opinion 108 Reload is a unique freeride model where we have combined a very modern geometry with a powerful construction. If you are looking for a lighter and more playful freeride ski, Second Opinion 108 is a better option.
