    JONG question and trust me I’ve done a ton of homework searching, but anyone know of any touring skis mounted between -3 and -5 and >120 underfoot? Doesn’t have to be super light, ideally <2050g. Thanks!

    Völkl Revolt 121, but I haven't skied them in the same conditions.

    FWIW, the people who make skis (i.e. Europeans) don't think touring skis should ever be that wide.

    However, you can mount any ski -3 to -5, and any ski becomes a touring ski once you put a skin on it.

    Tour Lotus? Protest UL? If you want to spend some money I'm sure there a couple dozen smaller outfits who would make that for you. Send Franco Snowshapes an email, or email Keith at Praxis.

    under 2050g is pretty vague without a length stipulation.

    fwiw those freaking out about hauling a protest uphill shouldn't. the waist may be 128 but the large radius and aggressive taper mean the tip and tail are narrower than a lot of other pow skis with narrower waists.

    Makes trail breaking really nice and relatively easy, which might or might not be important depending on your level of self delusion.

    New Black Crows Ferox could be interesting in the category. Looks a bit like a lighter Atris, which ime skis powder very well for its size.

    Atomic Bent Chetler 120 might (almost) fit within those criteria.

    Very curious about this one. Live touring on Anima Freebirds but something with a bit less tail rocker.
