Taking on the flagship "Carbonio" title is no small task. Being the successor to the Carbonio 88 is an even bigger task (by 1 mm!). Luckily the Carbonio 89 turned it up a notch (by 1 mm!) and delivered. A limited-edition series built with the highest-quality materials from one of the most renowned names in backcountry skiing begs for attention. However, the understated carbon top sheet flies under the radar and lets the ski do the talking (and skiing). A reinforced alloy-tip provides a secure skin-attachment while 3D Tech shaping trims swing weight for a light and nimble ride. A full-length sidewall counteracts the chatter sometimes associated with full-carbon skis, making it a lightweight ski that isn't scared of high speeds or steep terrain. The lightly-rockered 3D tip helps enter a turn while the rounded tail helps release from a turn. All in all, the Carbonio 89 can do it all.

  • Single radius turn-shape for predictable handling in a high-performance ski.
  • Full-length sidewall increases edge hold and improves impact durability.
  • Pin tails slide into a ski-carry loop for fast transitions and easy turning.
  • Warning: the Carbonio ski may cause excessive happiness.*

Question from Mike Foote
 
How do you think this ski compares to the Cho Oyu? Tech Specs are quite similar overall.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Good to hear from you, Mr. Foote. Tech specs are definitely similar, but in practice they will behave very differently. The Cho is like driving a mini-van or SUV and the Carbonio is like driving a sports car and there are benefits and downsides to both. The mini-van is nice and easy on tired legs and typically makes skiing the poor conditions that you are bound to find in the backcountry just that much easier. The sports car is more fun when conditions are sublime, but if you are skiing on tired legs, get lazy, or find the inevitable sun or wind crust, it'll punish you a bit more if you are skiing in carbon boots or plastic race boots. The Carbonio is a rocket ship though and they're a lot of fun, especially when you can get good conditions and link up a few fast turns in creamy corn, shallow powder with a base underneath, or even smooth ice. Enjoy!
