Technical info:
G3 has clearly been inspired by Völkls´ innovative carbon fibre constructions when making their own cap construction. The weight also testifies to this; you get a lot of surface area per gram. Similar to Völkl, G3 has also chosen a continuous rocker. This is combined with a short sidecut radius, especially in the front ski. The flex is medium at the waist, and softer at both ends.

On snow:
An exciting ski from G3! You get lots of flotation and originality. In powder it almost throws you into the next turn. On hard snow it has a tendency to hold back. We would have wished for less sidecut from G3, as we believe that this would have made a more stable and predictable ski. But the weight is great and with a little adjustment, the aggressive sidecut can be quite fun.
