fletcher 124

Dimensions: 146-124-133
Turn Radius: 27 meters @ 190CM

Don't let the girthy dimensions fool you, this ski is surprisingly nimble for its platform. Throw in a full edge-wrapped swallow tail and you'll be skiing the deepest snow with absolute ease. With a short turn radius and ton's of tip splay, you can stay forward and drive the ski without worrying about any tip dive on those all-time days. This ski was specifically designed for skiing in Japan, where it's always deep but not necessarily steep. So, with that in mind, we wanted to create a ski that can pop easily out of deep snow and not get slowed down when skiing lower angle slopes. We achieved our goal and the Fletcher 124 has quickly become a favorite with the whole shop crew.
