This is the all-new Scott Pure Pro 109Ti. It’s a ski that’s been built from the ground up with the exact specifications from the Swiss freeride maestro – Mr Jeremie Heitz. The result? Well, as you can tell by looking at the speed Jeremie skis some of the wildest faces on the planet, these skis are built, and shaped, to charge across any part of the mountain at speed.
Scott Pure 109 Shaping
Jeremie’s objective in building this ski was to only have one ski that he reached for in his garage.
This ski had to be capable of skiing powder and big mountain faces at home in Switzerland and high-altitude ski mountaineering in the Himalaya, while filming La Liste 2. This is exactly why Jeremie has shaped the Pure Pro with a 109 mm waist underfoot – the soon to be de facto waist width for freeride skis.
Looking at the tips and tails, you’ve got a traditional shape with little tapering, all of which brings a long turn radius of 21 or 23 metres, depending on the 183 cm or 190 cm length you go for.
Scott and Jeremie have made use of an elliptical turn radius, meaning that you’ve got a longer turn radius towards the tips and tails with a shorter one underfoot. Elliptical turn radii make for easy turn initiation at slower speeds, but help you remain planted at speed when you begin to flex the ski and initiate the longer radius found towards the tips and tails.
A subtle rocker, both in the tips and the tails, has been called on to provide a large effective edge. This combined with traditional camber underfoot gives the skis impressive edge hold through hard packed and variable snow.
