Forgiving Carving Ski
Redster X9 WB

The Redster X series is a less aggressive version of the GS Redster, targeted towards people who want something more forgiving and versatile than a dedicated race ski. You’ll still be able to roll from edge to edge effortlessly, but the X9 WB has the benefit of letting you relax and get off your edges for a while. It’s also shaped in a way that accommodates more than just huge, high-speed arcing turns for low-speed maneuverability. 

The secret to success is an extra 10mm underfoot. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but it lets the Redster X9 WB perform much more like a recreational ski and frees up space for the more generous sidecut. The X9 WB is for skiers who like to have the option to really open up and make aggressive turns but don’t want to spend their entire day doing so.
