The Belle 80s are the ultimate frontside cruiser skis. With a moderate flex, light weight, and nimble feel, they’re at home carving quick turns on groomers, ice, and hardpack. And when you find yourself in uneven crud, they’ll cut through it like a champ.

Turn initiation feels effortless on the Belle 80s - just roll your ankles and let them do the rest. With no shortage of grip, they’ll hold an edge on any kind of snow you lean them into. And the light, responsive ash & poplar core wrapped in carbon fiber and fiberglass makes for an incredibly quick edge-to-edge feel.

Now standard across our Belle lineup, the exclusive nanoMAG Damping System reduces vibration and chatter on ice without sacrificing the lively feel you’re looking for.

New for 2021: The Belle 80 has replaced the Belle 85, nanoMAG is now standard.

  • Ash/Poplar Hardwood Coregives you a smooth and stable, yet energetic ride.
  • Quick Turning Radius and Early Rise Tip Rocker let you dive predictably into turns and easily through the crud 
  • Camber + Camber Pockets underfoot provide exceptional edge grip on hard snow and ice
  • Rounded Mini-Cap top edges with full-height UHMW sidewalls are scratch resistant and look good too.

Standard Construction

Belle 95 Ski construction - wood core - Durasurf PTEX Base

Core

Laminated Ash/Poplar Hardwood: Long grain premium White Ash and Tulip Poplar is hand selected and cut into full length strips. Strips are individually flex indexed and laminated together symmetrically. Each laminated core is CNC milled to a precise thickness profile developed for each model and length.

nanoMAG® Damping System

nanoMAG® magnesium sheets are inlaid into the Ash hardwood cores. The unique characteristic of this material is its ability to dissipate mechanical energy into heat, with increased capacity as the material is moved faster. The faster you ski, the more stable they get!

Composites

Unidirectional Carbon Fiber strips beneath the core, lightweight Triaxial Fiberglass above and beneath the core, Fiberglass binding mat underfoot. Rubber bonding strips placed along edges, sidewalls, and ends for rock solid bonding.

Sidewall

Full height UHMW - the same raw material as your base, exceptionally durable and double chamfered for reduced swingweight. A rounded mini-cap top edge rolls over the sidewall to protect your topsheets.

Topsheet

Clearview gloss Nylon with sublimated graphics and transparent windows to inside the ski. 

Base + Edge

1.4 mm CNC Knife Cut 4001 Race Grade Durasurf sintered UHMW. 2.2 mm over-sized and heat treated edges take a beating.

Blog Post About How to Size and Pick Skis

Sizing skis is a little bit of an art and a little bit of a science. There are numerous factors that all effect the optimal ski length for you. 

A few of the factors are:

  • Skier size and weight
  • Skier ability (experts size up, beginners size down)
  • Type of terrain you like
  • Where you normally ski
  • Current ski size

Women's Ski Sizing Chart

What snow conditions are they made for?

Women's All Mountain Carving Skis - Snow Type Chart

Are they right for me?
They're right for you if you want an easy riding, quick turning all mountain frontside ski that works just as well in variable snow as it does on the groomers. You enjoy quickly rolling from edge to edge and carving short to medium radius turns.

What length should I get?
The Belle 80s have slight early rise tip rocker and a partial rise tail. If you are between lengths, size up for stability or size down for maneuverability.

What bindings should I get?
You can use any binding on the Belle 80s as long as the brake width is at least 80mm wide. We run Marker Squire bindings on our women's demo skis. Visit your local ski shop for bindings and mounting.

What can I customize?

What are Camber Pockets?
Camber Pockets are additional small sections of camber (about 4 in long and 0.030" tall) molded into the overall camber of the ski in front of and behind your midsole position. They increase contact pressure to improve grip on hardpack and ice.

Are they tuned and waxed?
Skis come tuned with a 1° base edge bevel and a 3° side edge bevel and a slight tip/tail detune. The skis are waxed with a universal temperature wax to get you going.

The Rundown

Ride Notes: Super easy to turn, quick shifting from edge to edge, perfect for cruising a blue groomer. 

Design Needs: Grip on hardpack/ice - smooth yet forgiving flex - quick edge-to-edge - easy to ski on but stable when driven.

Purpose: Build a women's carving/all mountain ski that can be used by new intermediate up to advanced skiers. Make it easy to cruise on, but also break through the crud.

Why You'll Love Them

  1. The smooth even flex makes carving quick, short to medium radius turns a breeze.
  2. nanoMAG damping reduces chatter on ice and increases stability without sacrificing liveliness. 
  3. The 80 mm waist width maximizes edge grip on ice and hard snow, yet still busts through the crud.
  4. The flex pattern is optimized specifically for women. It's not just a downsized ski.
  5. Camber pockets molded into the overall camber maximize edge hold on hardpack.
