A versatile allrounder. The great looking Wild Thang has 81mm underfoot for great versatility and an err towards skiing more adventurous lines than those marked by a simple colour. Best suited to the confirmed advanced skier or expert the Wild Thang is a good choice for skiers aiming to spend the majority of their time off piste. With a light twin-tip they are relatively easy to ski and skid- the skidding is good for washing off speed on tricky couloirs and imperative when skiing off piste.
An excellent choice for the regular backcountry skier.
