When designing the Pioneer we set out to make a ski to discover a new country for yourself on, whatever the conditions. Be it slack-country, side country, or the back-country, we wanted the Pioneer to take you on an adventure. After multiple prototypes we finally settled on a construction that weighed just 1.7kg/ski, it was a perfect ski for skiing all day, whether it’s out hiking, touring, or simply charging about the resort. The medium-length turn radius, versatile rocker and directional sidecut will let you ride with confidence whether there is fresh snow on the ground, days old crust or you’re on hard-pack. 175 & 184cm available now, 165 available 2022!
Don’t just take our word for it though, this was how Blister Reviewer, Luke Koppa, described them in his independent ‘Flash Review”:
“it’s very easy to slash around in soft snow, and feels very playful overall. It has an incredibly low swing weight. I loved it in the air. It also felt great on landings. The suspension / damping of the Pioneer is quite good for its weight. In tight terrain, the Pioneer feels exceptionally quick and nimble. As a backcountry ski, I think the Pioneer could be a lot of fun, particularly in softer conditions. For wiggling through trees and slashing your way through spring corn, I think this ski would be great. The Fauna Pioneer is a unique ski. It’s extremely quick, loose, and playful in soft conditions, and surprisingly strong in the middle of the ski.”
