Canadian brand G3’s new SEEKr line provides all-mountain, playful performance in a lightweight, backcountry-oriented package. We particularly enjoyed the surfy, floaty SEEKr 100 when skied in an upright stance. The ski’s core consists of pre-shaped poplar and paulownia wood, sandwiched between two layers of triaxial stitched carbon. But what really boosts the downhill performance is the full polyurethane sidewalls that noticeably damp the fairly soft ski when the going gets tough.
