Note: At G3 we have some of the highest production standards. Occasionally we receive a product with a small cosmetic blemish that doesn't impact performance. This type of blemish may be a small scratch or discoloration. It's typically something that you wouldn't even notice after a few days of wear and tear. This is reflected in the reduced price. Please note we cannot catalogue each issue with each product. Also we will offer a full warranty around the product's performance but will not do returns/exchanges pertaining to the cosmetic blemish.
This freeride-inspired ski balances weight and edge hold with a damp and powerful ride. The FINDr 102 is light but strong and is exceptionally fun to ski anything from soft snow to hardpack conditions. The SWIFT sizes of the FINDr 102 were designed with smaller users in mind.

So deliciously light! I'm 5'9", 170 lbs. I went with the 174cm for kick-turns, herring-boning, side-stepping, boot-packing and backcountry ballet made easy. I put 45 days of backcountry on them last season in allllllll the conditions and these skis continuously delivered. Admittedly a little squirrelly at first, but maybe that was just more of a learning curve? Despite having skied all my life and having previously rocked the Reverends and the Empires, I've never skied anything quite like this! As I get older, I need all the help I can get. These super light skis married to Ion 12's increases the time and enjoyment in the mountains in the absence of fatigue. 45 days in and the only sign of wear n tear is slight chipping of the decks on the inner sides of the tips where the skis inadvertently came in contact on descents. I applied some marine resin and problem solved. I do have reservation about the fragility/longevity of the ski given that it's full carbon, but so far, so incredibly stoked with them. It's a love story. ps. the magnetic edges, yeah, it's a thing and makes trannies so quick and dirty.
Thanks so much for your review Derek! Stoked that the FINDr 102 is treating you well!
