The 9D8 fits the title of a “classic all mountain ski” that can manage any condition. Its classic tip-mid-tail dimensions of 132-98-121 and subtle tip rocker gives you that extra float in soft snow, while offering smooth, effortless turn initiation on hard pack. It remains stable and predictable at any speed, and is comfortable in all types of terrain.
The Standard Edition 9D8 is offered in a #4 flex with our Heavy Hitter pure maple ash core.
The 9D8 can be customized for a variety of different skiing styles and conditions. While we love the #4 flex that is offered in our standard edition 9D8, consider customizing your flex to #3 for a less demanding, relaxing 9D8, or in contrast step it up to #5 for hard, fast skiing.
Customizing the 9D8 with an ultra light core has been a popular option for taking this great all purpose shape into the backcountry.
