2015 Ski Guide2015 Ski Guide


Handles all of winter’s snow cocktails.

Whether you prefer to arc down high-speed groomers, hop down steep chutes, or get deep into the backcountry to blast down pristine open bowls the G3 Manhattan Ski conquers whatever terrain or condition you throw its way. Part of G3’s new Descent series this powerful and confidence-induced ski takes you for endless sweet rides inbounds and outbounds.
  • The 108mm-waist makes this G3’s fattest ski for the 10/11 ski season
  • Two sheets of Titanal sandwiched into the ski’s construction help dampen the ski for high-speed descents
  • An early rise tip lets you blast through crud and float through powder
  • A variable J sidecut (a tighter turning radius in the tail) allows you to sit back and steer from the tails

What is titanal?

What is titanal?

Responded on

A Titanium alloy used in skis to dampen the ride and give some extra power. It's usually what people are referring to when they say, "this ski has (a sheet of) metal in it".

Can't find the top end

I've only got three days in on these boards and they are the fattest things I have ridden so I was surprised how versatile they were. I'm 6 foot tall, 170 pounds and I got these at 180 size. I still don't know if I should have gone longer but I have no complaint with the size.
First day out I took it easy as conditions were terrible but they even handled the hard pack and ice pretty well. I had no trouble holding an edge or even throwing them into some bumps but I wouldn’t want to do that every day. Then I finally got in some lucky rare powder. NW snow that was pretty solid but not too heavy on 5 and 12" days but got skied up into some serious light mashed potato crud when the weather turned warm again.
I had heard it before but these things turn the crud into smooth sailing. Crud seemed to have little to no effect.
The most notable thing, even more than crud busting, was that they really want to GO!
I don't even know if they have a top speed. I have skied a lot, and hard, and for a long time. This is the first time I have ever felt that maybe this was more ski than I needed and that is exactly what I am always looking for. I've always felt I was pushing my skis but now I think the skis are pushing me. Outside of the powder I was usually working to slow them down and skid turns are not what these bad boys prefer but these are super friendly skis with an aggressive side of testosterone speed and I don’t know what more I would want on a powder day.

How would these compare to say a Salomon Czar which I love. I have a pair of 182cm. These have more sidecut and radius so I'm wondering how they would ski vs a Czar. Anyone have an opinion?

I skied on these a ton last winter in the Wasatch-both inbounds and out. The first fatty I really liked. A lot of energy. Mach 5 no problem. Quick turning for such a big boy. A little heavy for a true BC set-up. Don't know the Czar, so can't make a direct comparison. I you want a bigger ride that doesn't ski like a log, you'll love these.

Phat Backcountry

Fattest backcountry skis I've owned.Loving these for the deeper days.
Just point them straight and see them rip.

rippin' teles

Lovin' the new Manhattans. I've got them mounted with Bomber Bishop Tele bindings. They've become my primary ski when there is 5" or more of new snow...which has been plenty of day in Summit County Colorado this season. I've used them in the backcountry and resort. The early rise tip keeps the skis from diving in the deep snow and cuts through the skied up chop at the resorts...but they are light enough and quick enough from edge to edge to ski the bump runs.

This is the fattest ski touring ski I have owned....So far they have been a blast! In variable terrain and of course powder you can just point these skis...You mostly tour up, for the down?(even if you enjoy the up) With a bigger ski it may take you a little longer on the up... But having this much fun on the down gives you more than enough inspiration to go back up for more! 3 2 1 Go!

I should add...As of late, (lack of snow Coast Mountains) the ski also works great inbounds at the ski area, especially if you LIKE carving fast gs turns on hard snow....

does anyone know how this ski compares to the line prohet 100. Without going to the Prophet 115 I am thinking that this ski should perform like the prophet but provide some rocker with just a minor increase underfoot.

I have been skiing 186 P100's as my daily driver for 3 years now but I've been interested in in getting a ski with a little more width and some rocker so I purchased the 185 Manhattan this winter.My first impression was that this ski is alot stiffer than my Prophets, but I liked the early rise tip and extra beef under foot.I have only 4 days on this ski, but each day I like it more and more.I was a little disappointed on the groomers as the G3 does'nt carve a turn as well as the P100. You have to really get the ski on edge and hold it to get the full flex out of the ski.This took a little while to get use to and when I got the hang of it the G3 preformed nicely.I did not find a speed limit here.Where the ski really shines is in the powder and especially the mank and crud.On 12" of fresh it turned great in the trees and I like the way the tip stayed up, this made turning in tight spots easy.But the best came later in the day doing laps under chair 23 (Mammoth) when everything was skied out and cut up.The Manhattan blew thru and over the mank like it was fresh pow.I've never had so much fun in those conditions.My friends bailed on me because it was too much work for them on that snow so I finished the day skiing alone.Overall I like the ski but I still don't know if I'll use it as a replacement for the P100.
