Product Info

Like any good switchblade, it has pop, cut and control. How do I know that, no idea, couldn't tell you if I did. The 4FRNT Switchblade Skis are made to shred the park to pieces. Charge blade-first into the gnar!

Product Details

Rocker Type

Classic CamberA traditional ski shape that gives the ski maximum performance in groomed conditions (the park)

Shape

Park / Pipe ShapeSpin, flip and slide your way to glory with 4FRNT's park and pipe specific shaping.

Traditional Contact The two contact points of the ski are at the tips and tails.

Twin TipThe tail of the ski is also upturned to allow for switch skiing and landings.

AsymmetricalA directional shape that gives the ski a more consistent feel

Core

Hyper-Block CoreThis core is designed with Poplar and Birch for freestyle riding, shredding laps and cruising the mountain.

Laminates

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

Base

Sintered 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.

Edges

Full-wrap edge

Additional Features

Snow Sports Recycling ProgramThis 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.

Alternating size colorways

Binding Compatibility

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

    Comments about 4FRNT Switchblade Skis 2014:

    This is one of the most durable all mountain skis on the market. Although tailored to a park this ski loves fresh groomed runs in the a.m. and is stiff enough to handle some variable conditions if you want to throw some at it. I ski the ski exclusively in the park and have never had any durability issues.

              Wow these are a very great ski. Very very lightweight, and have a perfect flex. They ride very smooth on basically all terrain. Ive even rode some powder with these skis. Perfect for the park. Perfect ski.

                Awesome ski, great carving on the slopes shreds bumps and charges down the mountain. Great in the park. A stiff ski, great on jumps and rails.

                  These skis are very flexible and will deliver in the park and on the groomed slopes. Wide enough underfoot to handle the landings and sturdy enough to make it through the crud. You will not be disappointed!!

                    This ski is a ton of fun inside and out of the park. The stiffness is as appropriate for somebody learning butters as it is for hauling down a groomer with huge carves or tight technical turns. It's stability gives good confidence when jumping. Edge sharpness out of the box gives great hold on solod ice.

                    At tuning time, it accepts wax with no problem. Just be ready for that pretty topsheet to chip away.
