Lhasa Pow

This is our #1 Selling Ski. The first true carbon/fiberglass rockered one-ski quiver with positive camber underfoot has been upgraded to first class. Weight: 4.3 lbs (1968 g)  per ski. PM Gear’s Lhasa Pow for 2012 has evolved again as it takes rocker and carbon fiber to the next level.  As the world’s first full line of hybrid carbon fiber and fiberglass skis, the construction of the Lhasa Pow has been refined for increased torsional rigidity, a better ride and to demonstrate that when we say there’s carbon fiber in our skis, we’d also like to show it.

The Lhasa’s new bullet-nosed rockered tip shape planes powder and slices crust ahead of the ski like an icebreaker.  It flexes when it needs to and absolutely does not flop around at speed on groomer hardpack. This tip is more than the front end of the ski. It clears the path for the rest of the Lhasa’s ample shovelprint through crud, crust, cake, and powder.

The Lhasa Pow is a semi-pintail ski, with a 20mm difference between the tip and tail widths. It requires a forward stance on the hardpack and requires virtually no effort in anything soft.
