townes 117

Dimensions: 132.5-117-125

Turn Radius: 30.7 meters @ 187cm

Making it's move from our SkunkWorks Collection to a tried and true model, the Townes 117 serves as a dedicated directional charger. We've designed this ski as a big-mountain tool that wants to go really really fast. If you're an ex-racer and can't find a ski that can keep up with you, look no further. The 117 simply doesn't do slow.
