Renegade Skis are line-busting, hard-charging, big-powder-mountain crushers. The ever-gnarly Eric Hjorleifson's signature ski comes with Reflect Tech to maximize the side-cut and radius' effectiveness, making for a surprisingly nimble big mountain ski - think a charging Rhino that's been trained in Russian Ballet. Built in the White Room from real wood and Entropy Sap Epoxy to exacting Salt Lake City standards, the Renegade is a big game weapon that's beautiful enough to grace a museum.
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 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.
Asymmetrical - A directional shape that gives the ski a more consistent feel
Tip / Tail Taper - The widest dimension of both tip and tail is moved toward the center of the ski
Deep Powder Shape - When the deep gets deeper, you want a ski with the float you need.
Indie-Block Core - Indigenous Maple laminates paired with a Poplar center delivers a stable, even flex along the length of the ski.
HALS Construction - Inherited construction technique from central Norway, this sidewall-less design provides superb energy transmission to the edge.
Semi-Cap - Semi-cap partially wraps the topsheet around the sidewall for additional durability.
Purl Wax - Purl 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.

Entropy Super Sap Epoxy - These bio-renewable materials are by products of the paper pulp industry, pine based feed stocks, and bio-fuel production. It is these by products that provide the epoxy in the White Room skis, with adhesion and elongation properties.
Snow Sports Recycling Program - This program collects old ski gear such as skis, boots, poles and various other equipment and grinds up the material for re-purposing. The White Room contributes all of its fiberglass and wood scrap from cutting the skis out once they come off the press.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
