The mountain which these skis are named after, Le Roc D'Enfer, is a steep and committing peak in the French Alps. Many of the lines off of her summit contain just the conditions that this ski is built for. With a 68.5mm waist that many skimo racers would consider a powder ski, the Roc is a strange hybrid of race ski technology and mountaineering performance. The Le Roc D'Enfer ski and has a Karuba and carbon core that makes it one of the stiffest race-weight skis available, and is the ideal tool when big objectives are on the agenda. These are the skis you'll be grabbing for those spring missions that involve as much time in trail runners or on a bike as they do on snow. Whether you're on a quest to ski an obscenely long ultramarathon course, have in your mind a contrived traverse of techy spring chutes, or are planning a never ending sufferfest to a big peak far from the road, it doesn’t matter. The Le Roc D'Enfer skis from Plum are the tools you want when the vert gets into 5 digits and the daily mileage ticks on over 20 miles.
- In our independent research, we found that this Plum ski mimics the Salomon Minim ski, found here. Almost like they’re the same ski.
- Carbon reinforces the mounting area, adding a stiff and stable platform underfoot while securing your screws.
- A sidecut designed to hold an edge better in steep terrain helps when the skinning gets a bit dicey.
- CFX Superfiber weave throughout the ski makes it one of the stiffest skis in its weight class.
- A anti-vibration Koroyd layer in the tips dampens vibrations and uncontrolled rebound.
