What Peak says about the 104SC
“Skiing isn’t a narrow sport, which is why there’s no shame in having a quiver. But who wants to haul three sets of skis to Revelstoke? That’s where the 104SC comes in. The SC stands for “side country,” which means they’re happy cutting a few laps at the resort, but we saved weight and kept things playful for leg-serviced adventuring. Pair it with a resort-to-AT binding and a boot with a tour mode and it’s the only rig you’ll need to haul to that bucket list resort/snowcat/backcountry adventure.
Because it’s lighter weight and easier to pilot than some of our inbound skis, the 104SC can be mounted with tech (pin), hybrid (resort to AT), and traditional two-piece alpine bindings. There’s no KeyHole in the 104SC, but don’t worry, there’s metal in it – an extended mounting plate that by design delivers the underfoot grip of KeyHole. Our lightweight “powder core” of poplar, paulownia, and vibration-eating polyurethane stringers is matched with a smooth flex for an easy feel. It’s loose enough for long days spent off-trail. But the 104SC is not just an off-piste ski: it’s thicker core is backed by metal. Hardpack is no problem.”
Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Peak 104SC:
In Front of Toe Piece: 6.5-10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-9
Overall, the tip and shovel of the ski is fairly soft but it becomes drastically stiffer throughout the body of the ski.
