Product Info

The 4FRNT Switchblade Skis are the go-to ski for 4FRNT s best park and pipe riders. They are stiff enough for huge pop and stomping slightly off-balance landings but playful enough to butter up your toast on both sides. Semi-cap construction retains edging power underfoot but gives you a durability advantage at the tips and tails. Make a name for yourself - carve your way through life with the Switchblade!

    Comments about 4FRNT Switchblade Skis 2013:

    Really beat up these skis with all the use in the park and pipe and this ski held up fine. Almsot no top sheet chiping what so ever and very few cracks along the edge. Many people were complaining about the pop in the ski but I found it was not a problem at all. The ski is very stable on jumps and has a nice low swing weight. The stiffness on this ski is actually alot less sttiff then expected so it makes all those butters possible but surprisingly holds up well on the groom. All in all fantastic ski would definitly buy again one of the last ones with full camber and unsemetrical.
