4FRNT Aretha Skis - Women's 2012

4FRNT Aretha Skis - Women's 2012: 4FRNT Aretha Skis are a women’s do-it-all ski in multiple sizes. Specific women’s construction is enhanced with modern shapes and early rise in the tip and tail that allow for venturing into the un-groomed. From powder, to crud, to groomed, this ski provides stability in all conditions. Throw on the 4FRNT Aretha Skis and you’ll get all the R-E-S-P-E-C-T you need.
Shape
Camber shape with Early Rise in the tip/tail of 155mm/65mm (at 175cm) gives the 4FRNT Aretha Skis stability in all snow conditions.
Construction
Deflect ABS sidewalls consist of a premium blend of stiff, supportive materials that maximize edge grip. A tri-bevel finish further sustains performance and defends against topsheet chipping.
Q 45 Weave tri-layered fiberglass creates stiffness throughout, allowing prompt response in a variety of snow conditions, high speeds, and hard rides.
Glosstop Topsheet, specific to 4FRNT, offers a crystal clear glossy finish to maintain the graphic’s brand new appearance, while also minimizing chipping and preventing scratches.
Features a dense ISO-SPORT 2000 sintered base allowing exceptional performance and speed.
Flex
Hi-Lite core of Poplar and Beech wood is snappy but light enough to support wider skis in soft snow.
X4 Dampening System is a full perimeter layer of elastometric rubber foil that is laminated between the metal edge, fiberglass, and wood core, creating unmatched stability and a smooth ride.
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake that is equal to the waist width and at most 20mm wider. (brake width = ski width + 20mm)

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Powder
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • 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.
