Product Info

Some would say this ski is made for backcountry touring, and you would be wise to listen to them. Whether you get up the hill under your own power or not, Eric Hjorleifson's second pro model ski (yes, he is good enough to have two) is built with many of the same features as the Renegade, but geared for greater versatility in a variety of conditions. The flex has been stiffened from that of the original 2013 HOJI for added stability and performance at speed. The awesome sailing ship art is by Hoji himself and may just be cool enough to inspire some 40 foot drops without hesitation.

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 Eric Hjorleifson as a way to make rocker and side-cut 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 side-cut 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

Big Mountain ShapeThese skis will get you down the steepest, tightest and most exposed lines out there.

Tip / Tail TaperThe widest dimension of both tip and tail is moved toward the center of the ski

Core

Hi-Lite CoreA blend of poplar and beech makes Hi-Lite Cores snappy and lightweight with enough substance to drive wider skis in soft snow.

Laminates

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

Base

Purl WaxPurl Wax is based out of Colorado and is made from renewable and natural sources. 4FRNT chooses to wax their bases with Purl Ice-9 wax because it is 100% biodegradable, petroleum free, and keeps nasty PFCs out of human bodies and watersheds.

Sintered Base

Edges

Full-wrap edge
