4FRNT Aretha Skis - Women's 2013

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.
Rocker Type
Classic Camber w/Early Rise - Traditional camber underfoot with a bit of early rise at tip and tail
Shape
Asymmetrical Shaping - Directional shaping that prefers travelling forward
Traditional Contact - The two contact points of the skis are at the tips and tails.
Twin Tip
Core
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.
Laminates
Fiberglass Reinforcement - Fiberglass laminates above and below the core
Sidewalls
Sandwich Construction - Traditional sandwich construction with ABS sidewalls for powerful edge transfer
Base
Sintered Base
Edges
Full-Wrap Edge

Binding Compatibility
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain
    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.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Camber
    Camber
    Camber is the traditional profile for skis offering skiers lots of edge hold, especially on harder snow. A cambered ski has a smooth arch underfoot and contact points near the tip and tail when unweighted. Camber skis excel at carving on hard snow; you won’t ever see a ski racer on anything other than cambered skis.
  • 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.
