Like the Laser SX, the CX is a skiercross-inspired frontside carver. It features a slightly wider waist than the Laser SL or GS, and a tighter, more slalomesque sidecut than the SX. It's also a shade wider, with a slightly softer flex. The Laser Series includes six models of Stockli's highest-performing frontside precision carvers, incorporating race-inspired technologies in detuned constructions appropriate to resort conditions. All are built on ultra-narrow waist widths for maximum edge grip and edge-to-edge quickness on hard snow. All are wood-core constructions, for dampness, responsiveness and durability, with full-length vertical sidewalls for optimized edging, and Stockli's fastest high-density graphite race bases. All are metal-reinforced for high-speed calm, using two sheets of titanal. Stockli Skis, now 75 years old and under its third generation of family ownership, is based in Wohusen, Switzerland, near Lucerne.
