A versatile, everyday workhorse for dedicated backcountry skiers, the Route 105’s durable materials and premium construction make for damp yet highly responsive and powerful performance that holds up to season after season of backcountry touring.
Black Diamond Route 105 2018/19
Conceived as the ideal daily workhorse ski for the dedicated backcountry skier, the Route 105 features floaty dimensions, durable materials and damp yet responsive performance. The result is a ski with both the power and control needed for ticking big lines and technical couloirs, and the durability to last through season after season of dawn patrols, powder laps and routine touring abuse. Built in Austria with a fiberglass layup, poplar wood core and flat construction for increased torsional stiffness, the Route incorporates many of the same design principles as our Helio Series, with an emphasis on durability that makes it ideal for 100+-day seasons in the backcountry. The versatile 105-mm waist tackles the full gamut of snow conditions, and the rockered profile makes for improved performance both on the skin track and in deep snow.
