I don't like the term "all new" because unless the name changes, too, it really isn’t "all new." Renoun went back to the drawing board to produce the V3.0 Endurance because after numerous discussions with Cyrus, we concluded that the original wasn’t as versatile as it needed to be. IMHO, V3.0 is a success. It is significantly changed from the first two generations; the only things that really carry over are that it says "Renoun Endurance" on the topskin and the waist is 98mm; past that, it is a whole new ski. Cyrus nailed everything that we like about a 98mm ski: it's solid and damp and still can be worked into a bunch of turn shapes. This is another application where Renoun’s patented HDT shines.
The Chris Davenport-designed FX95 HP is a charger that likes to run. It will make solid GS turns at any speed that you are comfortable with, in most any condition; for the more finesse skiers, Kästle offers a non-HP version, as well. The taper in the tip and tail allows you to work the ski and does not require you to be on edge the whole time, workability that really shines when you are in three-dimensional snow and muck. The shape of the tip and tail allows you to make the the turn you want to make and does not force you into any particular turn shape.
- Why choose the FX95 HP? You like to work a ski yet not lose top-end speed, and you also like trees and three-dimensional snow.
- Why choose the Endurance 98 V3.0? Light and solid, a rare combination, is your goal. You want a 98mm ski that will come into a turn and finish well but not launch you across the hill.
