    Power without weight.

    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.
