Technical info:
Moonlight has been designed in Finnmark, Norway, and this ski crushes all previous weight records. 0,59 is the lightest specific weight we have measured until now. Moonlight is way lighter than this. Northern Light Carbon Race has a long, low rocker in the front and a fairly long rocker in the back. It doesn´t have a lot of sidecut, the radius being 25 m. It has a foam core surrounded by carbon, and bamboo sidewalls.

On snow:
This is a very light ski! The test riders were exited to see how it would perform on the challenging snow conditions at the Galdhøpiggen summer ski center, and Moonlight’s ultra light construction was actually quite good. However, you will note the difference compared to heavier models. It feels crisp and unstable at speed. Northern Light Carbon Race is primarily a ski for those who prioritise minimal effort on the ascent. If the conditions are good you may also enjoy the descent.
