Quite possibly the “least nerdy” touring setup out there, the J Skis Slacker, paired with Daymaker Touring’s Tekdapter ski touring adapters, lets you enjoy a playful and versatile ride on the descents, all while keeping weight down for the way up.
The 110 mm-wide Slacker has the same easygoing, intuitive feel that we’ve come to expect from J’s skis. It floats well in powder but has enough mass and stiffness to handle firm and variable snow well, all while feeling very playful and forgiving. It was designed with the skin track in mind, but it’s also still substantial enough to be enjoyed in resort settings.
Pair that with Daymaker’s new Tekdapter ski touring adapters and your favorite alpine binding, and you have a setup you can take all over the place, whether you are riding chairlifts or getting up the hill under your own power. The Tekdapter can transform any ski with alpine bindings into a touring ski; just bring your own skins and boots fitted with tech toe inserts. Check out our video for the whole rundown, or listen to our podcast with Daymaker Touring co-founder and pro skier Giray Dadali.
