The new Falketind 62 Xplore is a wide and ultra-light backcountry ski designed, simply, to be great fun. It has been tuned to perform excellently in combination with the new Xplore binding system, as well as a few small tweaks to the camber, tail and performance.
Its generous sidecut makes it excellent on the turn – for the 180cm ski, a radius of 18.7 meters.
Designed with a moderate wax pocket and constructed with a responsive poplar wood core, carbon-reinforced for optimum torsional characteristics, the Falketind Xplore is ideal for those planning longer trips in demanding and steep terrain.
It is the ski for those who love to be on skis – climbing far for the pleasure of the descent.
Falketind skis are equipped with Skinlock, ready for an X-Skin (short skin) to be instantly locked in place when climbing, and attachment points for Pomoca and Colltex race skins.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT LENGTH
Ski length is determined according to body weight and height. The table below is only a guide, however – experience, skill, terrain, and individual needs can all influence your choice of length.
Generally speaking, moving through rugged terrain calls for shorter skis than the open mountain plateau. And for beginners, short skis are easier to control. If you’re mainly skiing along tracks, the length isn’t the most crucial factor. For good float on deep snow, a slighter wider ski is useful. Lighter skiers might consider a shorter ski; heavier skiers a longer ski. Skiers with loads such as backpacks and sleds might consider a longer ski.
