The RC One 78 GT Skis with RSW 10 GW Bindings is a fantastic choice for skiers in search of a fast and quick turning ski for days where there's no new snow. Similar in construction to the RC One 86 GT, this one features a more forgiving profile more suitable for lighter weight skiers or for skiers who a bit more conservative in their skiing style. Under the hood lays a full wood core on top of which sits a shaped Titanal laminate which tapers out in the tip and the tail for a bit more forgiveness and ease of turn initiation. A narrow 78-millimeter waist makes for a quick edge to edge feel and a lot of agility for making snappy and quick turns. The more forgiving flex doesn't require a lot of skier input to get the ski to flex into a turn which helps those of us who aren't quite as aggressive in our ski style. Tip and tail rocker provide great maneuverability and really allow the ski to release its edge when you want to throw them sideways. Overall, this ski provides the confidence inspiring edge hold and precision of a frontside carving ski, but its more forgiving personality allows intermediate to advanced skiers to enjoy the sensation of a carving ski without the effort needed to drive a more powerful ski.
