Nanotubes! Now in skis! La Sportiva has raised the bar significantly with the jump in technology found in the new Vapor Nano ski. We are so impressed we made it our first ski wider than 100mm underfoot!
A pre-preg resin matrix reinforced with carbon nanotubes (the strongest and stiffest fibers yet discovered) allows for a revolutionary weight to surface area. The skis are literally cooked until they harden into powder blasting weapons. Weapons that will fire for a long time; the nanotube hardening process ensures the ski will retain the same flex and rebound over time, unlike skis with wood cores that are susceptible to deadening.
The Nanos feature an insatiable rocker evolved from the five series of skis (Hi5, Lo5, Hang5). Also evolved is the positive camber underfoot and easy turning 20.5m radius [180cm]. When combined with the crazy weight, it’s almost as if the skiing is being done for you since your legs won’t tire. If you’re looking to lap powder over and over for years to come, think Vapo Nano from La Sportiva.
PLEASE NOTE: When mounting bindings on this ski, you may need to shorten the screws since the ski is so thin. This is especially true with the shorter lengths. Epoxy is recommended.
