Broader, tougher and better suited to skiers rather than mountain goats. The X-Calibur is skireviews.co.uk’s touring ski of choice. A 76 mm waist is going to be a bit better in descents and the Air Carbon chassis is light but stronger to give you more punch in either more extreme conditions or just if you want to have a proper ski!
Available in three lengths, 185, 175 and 165 the X-Calibur is a strong all-rounder if you prefer, or love, your downhill to your uphill.
