Technical info:
French Apo has made this promotional model for Sammy Carlson. It comes with a medium heavy fibreglass sandwich and a tremendous bend in the back ski. The soft tail is 12 millimeters higher than the tip. It has a short setback and a relatively short sidecut radius. The camber is quite high (20mR).

On snow:
Rise Up BC is primarily a fun and playful ski. It has good shock absorption and is easy to maneuver. Stable at switch skiing. Relatively soft and quick in the turns. The back ski is very soft and doesn´t provide much support. At high speed it flutters a little and it feels unstable. A good alternative for powder hungry park rats with a snowmobile license.
