Just like Aretha Franklin crushing the entire vocal range, the 4FRNT Aretha Skis kill it in any snow conditions. Built in response to team riders' requests for an all mountain freeride ski that would stand up to super aggro riding, the Aretha combines near-fat waist dimensions with an early rise tip for floatation in pow and solid sandwich construction that won't give up on you when you're hanging on for dear life. An ideal quiver-of-one ski for advanced female all mountain skiers.
Classic Camber w/Early Rise Traditional camber underfoot with a bit of early rise at tip and tail
Asymmetrical Shaping Directional shaping that prefers travelling forward
Traditional Contact The two contact points of the skis are at the tips and tails.
Hi-Lite Core A blend of poplar and beech makes a core that's snappy, light and durable.
Contour Core Men tend to ski from their chest while women tend to ski from their hips, which generates forces down through their heels. With FRNT's women's cores, they've moved the weight of the core rearwards (5cm) to accommodate a more centered skiing style. This lets women drive the true center of the core weight instead of constantly fighting from behind, while still being centered over the side cut.
Fiberglass Reinforcement Fiberglass laminates above and below the core
Sandwich Construction Traditional sandwich construction with ABS sidewalls for powerful edge transfer
