Great backcountry skis for pow in tight trees, wet PNW snow and bottomless unconsolidated spring mush. Higher speed limit that one might expect for such a short (173cm, longest they made last season) ski. Above all, these skis are fun.
Jak BC is a great all-around lightweight backcountry touring ski with a moderately soft tail but substantial enough for long traverses with big packs. Climbs well, light swingweight, forgiving. Not a hucker ski. Has speed limit. My favorite all-condition touring ski ever.
Stiff, durable, light, dependable, tours better than anything else, simple elegant engineering
