2021 Stockli Laser AR Skis w/ Marker Griffon 13 ID Bindings
Stockli Laser AR Skis with Bindings
The Stockli Laser AR skis with bindings are a high-performance setup that loves to go fast. They have a fantastic combination of comfort and performance thanks to the light wood core and metal laminate. The Laser AR skis with bindings are a fantastic choice for upper-level skiers who love to hit high-speeds on any and all terrain. The 83 mm waist width is approaching that of more traditional all-mountain skis, but the build and overall shape and profile are more on-piste oriented. When the skis have a wider waist for carving, what you lose in torsional stiffness, you make up for in balance. The wider platform is better suited for less-aggressive carving, but still allows you to hold a strong and precise edge. Stockli's torsion racing technology helps as well, by separating the metal sheet in the tips and tails, it allows for a precise, but not overpowering entry and exit from the turns. It's a smooth and subtle thing, but it really works. The 130 mm shovel width is wide enough to float over some fresh and soft snow, but the slight rocker is meant for precision rather than flotation. As a result, you can use these things as highly versatile front-side carvers, and get a ton of performance out of them over the whole mountain. The Stockli Laser AR skis with bindings are an advanced and expert level setup that's built for speed and precision.

Jeff and I go back and forth on proper bindings for these skis as there are quite a few different routes. Jeff may put a Look Pivot on his AX, at 78-80 mm underfoot, the 75 mm Pivot brake will fit well, but I'd hesitate to put that 75 on the AR. If an AR showed up on my doorstep and I had to buy a binding, I'd get either a Salomon STH 16 with 90 mm brake or the Salomon Strive 16 with the 90. The STH is a bit beefier while the Strive is lighter. Both of those bindings come in lower-DIN versions as well. We've also seen skiers put on more of a race-like binding such as a Marker Race XCell 12 to 16, as these also have more of an on-trail personality to them. We pair them with the Griffon for simplicity sake, as that's what we put on a lot of skis to pass along deals to the customer, and that binding would be totally fine as well. Hope that helps!
