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!
Rocker Type
Classic Camber - A traditional ski shape that gives the ski maximum performance in groomed conditions (the park)
 
Shape
Park / Pipe Shape - Spin, 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 Tip - The tail of the ski is also upturned to allow for switch skiing and landings.
Asymmetrical - A directional shape that gives the ski a more consistent feel
Core
Hyper-Block Core - This core is designed with Poplar and Birch for freestyle riding, shredding laps and cruising the mountain.
Laminates
Semi-Cap - Semi-cap partially wraps the topsheet around the sidewall for additional durability.
 
Base
Sintered Base
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.
Edges
Full-wrap edge
Additional Features
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.
Alternating size colorways
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: Park & Pipe
    Park & Pipe
    Park and pipe skis, often called freestyle skis, are for skiers who spend the majority of their time on jumps, rails, and jibs of all kinds. Traditionally park and pipe skis have narrower waists with full camber profiles, but this category is incorporating more rocker patterns and different shapes. You will almost always find these skis with twin tips as well as other park specific features like thicker, more durable edges, dense extruded bases, and butter zones.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Camber
    Camber
    Camber is the traditional profile for skis offering skiers lots of edge hold, especially on harder snow. A cambered ski has a smooth arch underfoot and contact points near the tip and tail when unweighted. Camber skis excel at carving on hard snow; you won’t ever see a ski racer on anything other than cambered skis.
  • Turning Radius: Short
    Short
    < 16 m radius is best for carving.
  • 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.
