Technical info:
Whitedot has replaced fibreglass with carbon fibre on the Ranger CL, and produced a very light construction. The long sidecut radius and setback gives a big width difference between the front and back ski. The flex is altogether a little softer than the average, and the waist is soft. It has low camber and relatively little rocker. No rocker in the back ski. The tail has an aluminum bracket to fasten climbing skins.

On snow:
We can only congratulate Whitedot for having created a very light ski, comparable to the most ingeniously crafted touring models. But it comes at a price. They feel crisp and fragile at speed, and you cannot rely on them the same way as the others skis in this category. The float is good and they work well when entering the turns, but the other properties will slow you down. These skis would suit light tech bindings and light randoneé boots.
