Technical info:
The carbon version of American RMU´s wide Apostle model has a lot of rocker and taper in both ends. The tip is soft and there is quite a lot of sidecut combined with a front mounting. This suggests playfulness, jibbing and backward skiing. At the same time the construction is light, in fact it´s slightly lighter than its little sister Apostle 98 that we tested last year. This wide version is also a little stiffer.

On snow:
RMU´s widest ski touring model has a fairly short sidecut radius, a lot of rocker and a soft tip. These features make it playful, easy to turn and versatile. It feels a little unstable at high speed, but all in all, this is a very fun and inspiring ski. The shape is not ideal on the ascent, but the low weight is. Apostle 106 is perfect for you who want a multi-purpose touring ski, especially for freestyle fun and runs through the woods.
