You one ski quiver for the backcountry | The La Sportiva Tempo alpine touring ski will help you pick up the pace and increase your cadence on the up track and then speed with velocity and perfect rhythm down steep mountain faces. This 103cm waisted do-it-all workhorse won’t miss a beat, whether in deep snows or on reverberating hard surfaces.
The Tempo is damp and stable with a solid Poplar core that is both lightened and stiffened with added carbon fiber and Paulownia strips. The ample rockered shovel will have you singing falsetto through blower powder, while the Fusion sidewall and reinforced fiberglass binding plates bellow a smooth baritone through chatty, skittish conditions.
Weighing a half-note 1700grams for the 179cm ski, picking up the Tempo is made easy. Whether you are on a far away hut trip, dropping into a committing couloir or slashing a deep backcountry face, the La Sportiva Tempo will be quick, measured and always in harmony.
