    The Citadel 106 has been a vision of ours since the inception of RENOUN. Wider, lighter, carbon fiber. More HDT, less chatter. Everything you need to build a super ski unlike any other. After 3 years of R&D - Research & Dreaming, we’ve made it a reality.

    Very interesting. I'd like to put it up against some other early rise wider skis to see if it "slaps" less on groomers. You still have to get back to the lift from the powder!

    Is there an advertised weight to go along with "carbon fiber" and 'lighter"? Could make a great side-country touring ski if light enough...

    I suggested a cage match between this ski and the DPS Alchemist 106 in another thread. ogsmile

    If I was doing side/back country I would give these a serious look. They claim it is their "widest and lightest" ski. As compared to?? A similar length Endurance 104? I don't know. There are no specs available yet other than lengths and widths. I really like my Endurance 98's. In hindsight I would've preferred the Z-90 as I do prefer more of a carving ski on piste given as much time as the Endurance have spent on piste this season. I will be adding the Z to the quiver for next season. A light, nimble carving ski would've served me well for the conditions we had after the first couple days of the Gathering. Anyway, that should hold me off for a couple seasons.

    I would listen to the @Cyrus Schenck podcast. While he doesn't give specifics on weight he does address the subject.

    There is no published weight at this time, that I'm aware of. If/when there is, I'll be sure to post it.

    Just getting off the mountain. Will merge now.

    If @Cyrus Schenck does one thing besides make a great ski, he not only hears feedback...but he listens to it.

    I was skiing a 107ish carbon rockered ski in Tahoe the weekend before last. The carbon slap/ vibration on hitting the rained out concrete would be one great application of HDT.

    ... Lengths available - 178-185, 191

    Hmmm... with that "-" in there, the implication is you can choose any length from 178 to 185.

    Don't mind my pit-nicking... just a height-challenged man venting :nono:

    @Eric Edelstein & ExoticSkis have the 185 & I’m getting em later this week!!! :golfclap:

    I ordered up some 191’s today - the WhiteDot Ranger CarbonLite 108 is my hands down favorite carbon ski, yet it’s getting whooped out . I’m hoping the new Renoun dethrones em!
