The CountDown 114 L is a best seller in the DOWN lineup and for good reason. It strikes the balance of stability, fun, and float perfect for all skiers looking to hit both the lifts and the backcountry.
A light-poplar core with a center-strip of Isocore is blended with carbon fiber to make the ski not only light but damp.
The CD114 Ls 5 point shape combined with our hybrid-rocker-camber profile makes the ski easy to use for both skiers new to freeride or comp riders. Proving its versatility, the CD114 has been the one and only ski for pro athlete Mickael Bimboesas he won 2 events on the FTW including the famous Verbier Extreme! A 1stfor a carbon ski and a 1stfor an indie ski company.
The ultimate in versatility and smoothness, our freeride rocker profile combines camber underfoot with a low rise, elliptical tip and a nearly flat tail. The underfoot camber gives instant edge grip in tricky conditions and the smooth transition into the tip and tail rocker lets you engage the full effective edge on demand for smooth carving. The low rise, elliptical tip provides full snow contact, punches through uneven snow with minimal deflection and keeps you on top of even the deepest, fluffiest powder.
NEW FOR 2023-2024
The latest version of the CountDown Carbon 114L features significant upgrades in durability and performance. Here's what we improved for the 23/24 version of the CD114:
increased underfoot stability by adding a 605mm long / 0,5mm strong Titanal zone centered around the BMP
1,8mm thick bases replace 1,2mm thick bases: 50% more beef underfoot gives extended product life & more tunability
SUPERSAP epoxy: our secret sauce, so-to-say, is a blend of Supersaps 33% biobased resin with our proprietary hardener; a result that is superior to the ski industry standard in terms of tensile strenght and impact resistance
adjusted core profile: we slightly modified the core profile from a somewhat trapezoid-type profile, to a more bell-curve profile. You'll notice a subtle improvement in the fineness of the ski
