Whitedot R.108 Carbonlite Ski Whitedot R.108 Carbonlite Ski
Whitedot starting producing big mountain freeride skis a few years ago over in Europe, and with more than a few podium places on the Freeride World Tour, it's safe to say they know what they're doing when it comes to designing and building skis. With their reputation in the freeride world cemented, the all-new Carbonlite series of skis brings its proven big mountain designs to the human-powered market with the Ranger R. 108 Carbonlite Ski.The R. 108 Carbonlite Ski builds on the popular and proven design of whitedot's Ranger ski, but loses a layer of fiberglass in favor of a lightweight carbon fiber laminate that keeps the ski light and manageable on the skintrack. The Carbonlite construction brings the weight down to 7lb 11oz per pair in a 186cm length, making them a light and efficient backcountry tool. Combine that lightweight construction with a notched tail that keeps skin clips securely in place, and you have a ski that will mob up the skintrack and absolutely crush the descent. The R. 108 Carbonlite Ski gets its downhill capabilities through the same construction used in Whitedot's more resort-focused skis. The core is composed of a combination of playful poplar in the tip and tail with ash underfoot for better stability and binding retention. The carbon/flax stringers that keep the ski light also keep the ski torsionally stiff and damp, giving the ski the ability to handle variable conditions with aplomb. The rockered tip and lightly rockered tail work with the wide 138mm shovel to put the ski up in soft snow, while camber underfoot and a versatile 108mm waist keep the ski fun on almost any surface condition.

Whitedot Ranger.98 Carbonlite Ski Whitedot Ranger.98 Carbonlite Ski
The holy grail of backcountry boards is a ski that weighs next to nothing on the ascent, but has the power of a five pound ski on the descent. This may seem like an impossible compromise, but thanks to some mad engineering skills and a penchant for carbon fiber, Whitedot has produced a ski that's both light and powerful, so you can throw it on your back when you're hiking into remote mountain ranges to summit dormant volcanoes, then ski with confidence from the summit, without feeling like you just strapped a couple of noodles to your boots.Built on the Ranger. 98 platform, this Carbonlite version of Whitedot's versatile mid-fat ski sheds weight thanks to carbon laminates, which bring the ski's weight down to just 3lb 5oz per ski in a 176cm length. Apart from the carbon laminates, the Ranger. 98 Carbonlite remains virtually identical to its non-carbon comrade, giving this lightweight option the same powerful and versatile feel. The core of the ski is composed of poplar in the tip and tail with ash underfoot for increased power and better binding retention. The addition of carbon, KEVLAR stringers adds torsional rigidity, so you get stability without adding a bunch of unnecessary weight to your setup. The Carbonlite version of the Ranger. 98 utilizes the same sandwich construction that you'll find on all of Whitedot's skis, giving this ski a surprisingly stable and powerful feel for its weight.
