Description

Leave civilization behind. It's not that great anyway.

You refuse to be tied down, which is why you moved into the Beartooths, built a yurt out of squirrel pelts, and raised a wolf pup to be your one and only companion. Once a winter, you head into town to stock up on whiskey and wolf kibble, and the only backcountry vehicle you trust to get you there and back is the Rossignol BC 70 Positrack Ski. It's got all the best features of alpine skis for the descent into civilization, like full-length metal edges and and a wide sidecut to handle variable conditions, combined with the best parts of traditional nordic boards to help you get back to the wilderness ASAP, like a light and low-density LDC wood-air core and grippy Positrack waxless bases.

You're bound to encounter everything from deep powder to bulletproof ice to wind-affected slab on your journey, but damn it, your wolf is hungry and your flask is empty, so you'll just have to deal with the variable conditions. Luckily, the Positrack is made with Active Cap construction, which combines flexible RossiCap technology with a stiff multi-directional fiberglass laminate to give it a balance of torsional rigidity, directional stability, and consistent performance in deep and uneven snow. Rossignol increased performance in variable conditions by giving the Positrack a slightly more dramatic camber profile, allowing the ski to ride over chop without bucking you like that moose you tried to tame last summer. Ah well, who wants a moose anyway? Life's better when it's just you, your wolf, and your BC 70 Positrack, enjoying life in the wilderness. And your whiskey. Don't forget your whiskey.

If you are just going out and doing just some single track or quick morning tours you probably only need the 179, but if you are thinking about really getting out there and packing on some extra gear then you should probably size up.

How much do these guys weigh? I would be getting the size 170. Love the description by the way....makes me want them more :)

The weight of the 170 cm will be 1,880 grams or right about 4.14 pounds for the pair. Now get out there and break some trails!
