Product Info

For hard charging freeride-oriented gals, the 4FRNT Aretha Skis have the design and construction required to dominate big mountain features. The 4FRNT specific Contour Core moves the heaviest, thickest part of the ski core back 5 cm, creating a more balanced ski for women. ReflectTech matches the sidecut and rocker radii for smooth, consistent carving in all conditions, and the reverse camber profile excels in softer, deeper snow.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Reverse CamberA full radius along the length of the ski gives the ski maximum float and nimble turning.

Sidecut

Reflect TechReflect Technology was dreamed up by Eric Hjorleifson as a way to make rocker and sidecut work together. In the past, full rocker profiles had a negative impact on the ability of the ski to edge consistently, causing the tips to hook and the tails to wash out while the ski was on edge. With Reflect Tech, the Rocker radius and the sidecut radius are matched, to allow the ski to edge smoothly, and create predictable carving in all conditions. It virtually eliminates tip hook, as the ski will engage smoothly along its whole length, and still gives you the float and pivotablility of a fully rockered ski.

Shape

AsymmetricalA directional shape that gives the ski a more consistent feel.

All MountainWhen you're looking for a one-ski-quiver, look no further than 4FRNT's All Mountain shapes.

Core

Contour CoreWhile men drive the ski from their chest, women tend to ski from their hips, which generates forces down through their heels. With the women's cores, 4FRNT move the weight of the core rearwards (5 cm) to accommodate this 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 sidecut.

Sidewalls

Semi-Cap ConstructionSemi-cap partially wraps the topsheet around the sidewall for additional durability.
