Technical info:
Spitfire LT is G3’s lightweight model. Despite this, it has one of the heaviest constructions in this test. A narrow waist and relatively large radius (the tips are therefore not that wide), keeps the total weight down. It has setback of 8 centimeters and the mounting position is 15 centimeters backward. Camber is low.

On snow:
The G3 Spitfire LT scores average among the narrow ski touring models in this test. It doesn’t stand out in any respect, but is at the same time reliable and versatile. Bearing in mind the radius, it doesn’t respond that well in the turns. This probably has to do with the mounting position. We missed the snappy feel of some of the other models. On the other hand, they deliver good stability and flotation. Don’t think twice about bringing these skis along to the steepest couloirs. This is a real ski touring workhorse that is ready for any mission.

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.
