Technical info:
G3 has kept the RoamR series going for a few years now, but this is the first time we test this model from the Canadian ski touring specialist. They have made the most out of the concept of having a lot of sidecut in the rocker transition. The turning radius in the front ski is only 10 metres, and 24 metres in the rest of the ski. Otherwise it has long and low rocker in the front, even medium stiff to soft flex curve, and it isn´t particularly light in this category. A specific weight of 0.91 is close to ordinary freeride skis.

On snow:
All the test riders agree that RoamR is a solid ski. This is perhaps not strange considering that it is the heaviest construction in the test. It performs well in both powder and on hard snow, and it´s easy to maneuver. The long sidecut in the front ski makes it easy to enter the turn. Still, it is a notch better in big turns at high speed than the opposite. The pronounced sidecut in the front makes it difficult to control on hard snow. G3 RoamR is a good choice for big riders who prioritize maneuverability over weight. It also performs well in the piste.

This sequence of numbers indicates stiffness. Each number corresponds to a part of the ski, from tail to tip. 5 equals the average
for this part and length of the ski. Lower values indicate softer skis, higher values stiffer.
