Waist Width: 115
The Stormrider Pro 115 is the widest model in Stockli's Freeride series, with a 137 mm tip, 115 mm waist, and 128 mm tail. It's the most powder-oriented ski Stockli makes, and its 24 - 28 m radius (depending on length) is intended for big mountain skiing down serious terrain. Powder Rocker lifts the tip dramatically off the ground, designed to mow over deep snow and other various terrain outside of the groomers. This rocker profile also lifts the underfoot section up and off the ground, intended for extra floatation when the ski needs it. Titanal Technology integrates titanal into the ski, designed for stability and weight reduction in place of other bulkier materials. 3AX technology integrates fiberglass into the sidewall, designed for durability on burlier terrain. For something similar but skinnier, check out the Stormrider 107 and Stormrider 95. The all-new Freeride series is comprised of eight different powder-focused models, all falling under the the "Stormrider" subcategory. There's the Stormrider Pro 115, Stormrider 107, Stormrider 95, Stormrider 88, Stormrider 100 Motion, Stormrider Motion, Stormrider Vario, and Stormrider Light. All skis in the series share Light Core technology, which integrates woods like fuma and balsa, designed to reduce weight while maintaining durability and stability. Outside of this shared technology, however, each model has its own unique set of technology to set itself apart from the others. If you're looking to ski powder and other varied conditions outside of the groomers, this might be the best series Stockli has to offer you. Stockli, based in Wolhusen, Switzerland, was founded in 1935. Its U.S. headquarters are in Shelburne, Vermont.
