Skiers asked for it, G3 listened and the big mountain freeride Empire 115 was born. Armed with full reverse camber, the G3 Empire 115 is your dream come true for deep powder days in the backcountry.
Skis feature the same powder-slaying construction as the original Empire skis but with narrower dimensions to keep them lighter and more versatile for backcountry travel
PowerRide construction features poplar wood cores between sheets of 7000-series titanal aluminum and a triaxial weave of fiberglass for torsion and flex
Progressive, continuous reverse camber profile is matched to the skis' sidecut radius for powerful, fast, big lines in deep powder and they still hold an edge on hardpack
ABS plastic and thermoplastic urethane sidewalls stand up to impacts and give the skis a lot of pop when you're coming out of turns
Glossy nylon topsheets keep snow from building up on the tops of the skis
Durable steel edges stand up to regular use and dig into hard icy slopes
The G3 Empire 115 telemark/randonee skis have P-Tex 2000 Electra bases that are very durable and absorb wax well for good glide
Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
