The LZ2 is a structure with a reputation for always working well making it one of the most popular structures we offer. The LZ2 performs best in relatively dry cold snow as well as warmer old transformed snow. The LZ2 structure is a good choice for your main all around ski as well as changing conditions.
All of our core skate grinds are compound grinds made as two grinds cut onto the ski one on top of the other or two grinds cut into the stone. The LZ0 and the LZ2 run well in both new and transformed snow and both can perform outside of the printed range. The PL3 and PL4 are best suited for transformed snow, but the PL3 will often run in new snow if the humidity is high enough. The Vario grind is a new offering from Gear West that runs best in man-made snow and is made with the new Variotech technology recently installed on our Tazzarri grinder. For skiers looking for one grind to perform in all conditions in the Midwest – the LZ2 would be the choice. In other parts of the country with warmer and more humid snow, the PL3 would be a good choice. At Gear West we are always happy to discuss appropriate grind choice for skis – give us a call to discuss.
