4FRNT Aretha Skis - Women's 2015

For hard charging freeride-oriented gals, the 4FRNT Aretha Skis have the design and construction required to dominate big mountain features. The 4FRNT specific Contour Core moves the heaviest, thickest part of the ski core back 5 cm, creating a more balanced ski for women. ReflectTech matches the sidecut and rocker radii for smooth, consistent carving in all conditions, and the reverse camber profile excels in softer, deeper snow.
Rocker Type
Reverse Camber - A full radius along the length of the ski gives the ski maximum float and nimble turning.
 
Sidecut
Reflect Tech - Reflect Technology was dreamed up by 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 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.
Shape
Asymmetrical - A directional shape that gives the ski a more consistent feel.
All Mountain - When you're looking for a one-ski-quiver, look no further than 4FRNT's All Mountain shapes.
Core
Contour Core - While men drive the ski from their chest, women tend to ski from their hips, which generates forces down through their heels. With the women's cores, 4FRNT move the weight of the core rearwards (5 cm) to accommodate this more centered skiing style. This lets women drive the true center of the core weight instead of constantly fighting from behind, while still being centered over the sidecut.
Sidewalls
Semi-Cap Construction - Semi-cap partially wraps the topsheet around the sidewall for additional durability.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Big Mountain, Powder
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Big Mountain
    Big mountain skis are designed for charging big lines with high speeds and big airs. These skis varry in width from wide, powder-oriented skis for skiing Alaska spines to narrower, mixed condition skis for ripping the beat up headwall at your local mountain. Skis in this category tend to be on the stiffer side, often with more rocker in the tip and less in the tail.
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker
    Rocker
    Rocker (also called reverse-camber) is just as it sounds – camber turned upside down. Rocker skis have a side profile with a smooth downward curvature and a contact point at the middle of the ski. Rocker skis excel in deep powder. This profile provides the skis with less tip and tail hang up to prevent from catching edges and allows the skis to initiate turns extremely quickly. This profile doesn’t perform as well in icy conditions or on harder snow but if you spend lots of time in deep, untracked snow and like a more playful ski, Rocker is a great choice.
  • Turning Radius: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
