Reveals, New Launches and Gear

La Sportiva Vapor Float Ski

Adding to their already impressive Vapor line of touring skis, the new La Sportiva Vapor Float comes in at 117 underfoot — providing ample float in deep snow. The skis weigh in at a featherweight 1,400 grams, making them easier to trudge through powder with. La Sportiva utilizes their Carbon Nanotube technology in the construction of the ski, first seen on the Vapor Nano, to keep the ski light without sacrificing torsional rigidity.
