Rocker Type
Jib Rocker™ - Featuring an elevated tip and tail, with zero camber underfoot, Jib Rocker offers the right amount of playfulness for butters and surface tricks, while at the same time providing enhanced pop for unmatched ollie power.
 
Flex
Park Flex Pattern - Softer at the nose and tail, while being stiffer underfoot, for added stability and pop
Sidecut
Directional Taper - A moderately wider tip than tail maximizes the ski’s performance in the forward direction - this means the ski makes a slightly different arc when skiing switch.
Core
BioFlex 2 Core - A combination of 70% dense Aspen core underfoot is fused with 30% lightweight Paulownia at the tip and tail to reduce swing weight, while blended bamboo throughout for strength and durability.
 
Laminates
Triaxial Braiding - Consists of braiding fiberglass around the wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control, making the ski incredibly energetic and responsive
 
Sidewalls
Cap Construction - A durable, lightweight, and softer construction
 
Base
Swap Base - Ski bases are made with inverse colors so that less material is wasted.
 
Edges
3.5 mm edges are thicker and far more resistant to cracking.

Specs

  • Terrain: Park & Pipe
    Park & Pipe
    Park and pipe skis, often called freestyle skis, are for skiers who spend the majority of their time on jumps, rails, and jibs of all kinds. Traditionally park and pipe skis have narrower waists with full camber profiles, but this category is incorporating more rocker patterns and different shapes. You will almost always find these skis with twin tips as well as other park specific features like thicker, more durable edges, dense extruded bases, and butter zones.
  • Ability Level: Beginner-Intermediate
    Beginner-Intermediate
    Someone who is new to the sport or working on linking smoother turns falls into this ability level. Typical beginner ski/snowboard qualities include: softer materials, narrower widths, and capped constructions. The idea is to create a ride that is easy to turn and very forgiving in case you become off balance or fall in the back seat. The addition of rocker in the tip and tail gives a catch-free feeling and shorter contact length when the ski/snowboard is flat on the snow, making it easier to turn.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker is a variation on the rocker theme that seeks to provide a little more hard snow edgehold and pop than full rocker while retaining ease of turning and float. Performance is between a fully rockered ski and a rocker/camber/rocker ski.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
