For that perfect middle ground between big mountain effectiveness and uphill aptitude, look no further than the 4FRNT
Hoji Skis. The full rocker shape not only excels in fresh snow, it also allows for a more fluid, trail breaking stride on the way up. Tried and true Reflect Tech allows smooth, predictable carving across a variety of conditions, and when combined with the Big Mountain Shape designed by Hoji, gives you the stability and confidence for high speed airs and chute exits.
Reverse Camber - A full radius along the length of the ski gives the ski maximum float and nimble turning.
Reflect Tech - Reflect 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.
Asymmetrical - A directional shape that gives the ski a more consistent feel.
Big Mountain Shape - These skis will get you down the steepest, tightest and most exposed lines out there.
Tip / Tail Taper - The neutral sidecut length at the tip and tails' widest dimension.
Hi-Lite Core - A blend of poplar and beech makes Hi-Lite Cores snappy and lightweight with enough substance to drive wider skis in soft snow.
Semi-Cap Construction - Semi-cap partially wraps the topsheet around the sidewall for additional durability.

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
