If you liked last year’s Chainsaw, you’ll like this year’s too since Elan left it unchanged. It has a wood core reinforced with fiberglass that should keep it lightweight while maintaining some rigidity. Being a backcountry ski, it has mostly tip rocker with a bit of tail rocker to make it floaty in powder.
