The Candide 1. 0 Ski from Faction is redesigned this year to be livelier, snappier, and burlier than ever. Carbon fiber reinforcements through the skis add power and responsiveness to your turns. To make these bad boys capable of standing up to the abuse of park and urban riding, Faction used 2. 5mm thick steel edges, so they won't blow out on you. A symmetrical sidecut and camber underfoot lets you pop, spin, and land however you choose. At 90mm underfoot, these are perfect for the pipe and park, but if the snow is falling and your friends are spinning laps through waist-deep fluff, these will give you enough float to still show them what's up.
Go deep, real deep. These next generation freeride machines are truly light enough to climb as high or far as youâ re willing to take them. Drop in deep with confidence, speed, and the extra leg power you saved on the climb. From bold first descents to beating the crowd into steep and deep slackcountry, these skis will be leading the pack into the future of freeride. Join us, or catch up when you can.

Outside Magazineâ s Gear of the Year ski, the Nunataq features a shape of 139 107 123, for the AT skier seeking a rockered touring ski that is wide enough to take on deep powder descents. Thanks to VÃ¶lklâ s ELP rocker design, the Nunataq is super maneuverable in deep snow, yet very smooth and precise should the skier encounter hard snow.
With a shape of 131-96- 114, Volkl's Nanuq features tip rocker for a smooth, forgiving ride no matter what the conditions. For skiers who want the width to float in powder with a lightweight, yet powerful ski, it features Vokl's Multi Layer Wood Core Light and Power construction for rock-solid stability and edge grip.

Rossignol's 7 Series has turned out some of the most highly regarded skis of the last few years, and the Smash 7 is the newest addition to the mountain-crushing lineup. At under eight pounds per pair and with a waist width of 92, it's the smallest and lightest ski in the 7 Series, which makes it perfect for intermediate riders looking for big-time performance that won't overwhelm their abilities. The Smash boasts the same Powder Turn Rocker as all the other 7s, giving you the ability to pivot when you're cruising slowly, engage a solid edge at medium speeds, and rip with confidence and serious edge hold when you're opening things up, all the while maintaining float and smoothness in deeper and rougher snow. Rossignol built the Smash with a poplar core that's light and springy for a fun ride, and overlaid it with a fiberglass laminate to give it enough stiffness to rip without reducing any of its liveliness. It's also been wrapped with a Rossitop cap construction, which is durable and lightweight, and designed with a centered sidecut that provides easy, predictable edging power on everything from powder to groomers. With a freeride design that's been modified for intermediate rippers, the Smash 7 is a ski that can do it all, all winter long.
Hagan's Y-Boost is for those who climb mountains for 3-4 hours and deserve to be rewarded with awesome descents. Whether powder, corn, breakable crust or inconsistent, unconsolidated snow, the Y-Boost blasts through everything that stands in its path with its unique shape and construction. The wide elliptical-shovel ensures supple buoyancy and perfect maneuverability no matter how challenging the slope. The Carbon Tip Stabilizer reduces shovel vibration and in combination with the ABS sidewall construction creates a smooth, richly decadent ride.
You don't actually have to plug the K2 Amp Rictor 90 XTi Ski in to get it to work, because it supplies plenty of power all on its own. At 90mm underfoot, it splits the size difference between all-mountain and freeride skis, with a construction that's as comfortable plowing through soft snow as it is railing top-to-bottom turns down groomers. Built from aspen, paulownia, and maple for the perfect combination of lightness, stiffness, and liveliness, the Amp has a moderate turning radius to keep things manageable in tight spots as well as on open slopes, and a Titanal laminate that helps it rally at top speed and bust through crud without getting jittery or unstable. K2 built the Amp using its All-Mountain Baselin 2. 0 technology, which matches the rocker and sidecut profiles to provide a big sweet spot for all turn shapes, a short, rounded tip for predictable turn initiation, and blunt, round tail for easy turn release in all conditions. Combined with the traditional camber underfoot, this allows the ski to hold or release an edge whenever you want, so you can rally down hardpack or stay quick and nimble in the trees. The Power Tip also helps the Amp plane up and over soft snow, and the Hybridtech sidewalls combine traditional sidewalls and lightweight cap construction for durability, edge hold, and smooth turn initiation. The Amp even has Z-Clip skin grommets, so you can stick some K2 skins on and rip some backcountry lines if you get tired of crushing the frontside.
When tonight's storm has you dreaming about tomorrow's faceshots, you better make sure you have the Blizzard Cochise Ski packed and ready to go. With a 108mm waist and a rockered tip and tail, the Cochise lets you float over pow and crud with vigor and initiate turns like a champ. When the storm lets up and your dreams of bottomless pow don't pan out, the Cochise still has you covered, as slight camber underfoot lets you make solid, powerful turns on hardpack. The versatile waist combines with innovative Flipcore design in which Blizzard inserted the ski's core into the mold upside-down, giving it a natural tip and tail rocker rather than pressing it unnaturally into shape like most of the skis on the market. What does this mean for you? It means snappy, intuitive edge control on groomers and fluid flex and turn initiation anywhere. It also means excellent stability and even pressure distribution. The Cochise's multi-wood core provides smooth flex for all kinds of playful feel out of this kickass ski.
For years, the Volkl Mantra's been the gold standard for all-mountain edge grip--you could point it at anything and let 'er rip, but it was a ski that always wanted to be driving a hard edge. The combo of power, precision, and width made for a wonderfully versatile quiver-of-one ski, but always left a niggling feeling that you were missing out on some of the powder-munching, turn-smearing fun of surfier, more forgiving boards. This year? Not so much. Kiss those hangups goodbye and say hello to the new Mantra, a slightly fatter, fully rockered all-mountain animal that has all the aggressive, hard-charging instincts of the original, tempered with a dose of pure pow lovin'. If you're into powder (is that even a question?) two words should stand out from the first paragraph: Full. Rocker. While the old Mantra could be overly aggressive in soft snow and tight trees, the new profile combines with a tapered tip to ease things up, making it easier to throw your skis sideways, scrub speed, and have more fun when things get soft and you need to be light on your feet--you'll be able to vary your turn shapes, opening things up when you feel the need for speed and shutting them down when things get techy. Don't worry about sacrificing hardpack performance, though. Even though its waist is two millimeters wider than previous iterations, the Mantra uses Volkl's burly, aggressive Power Construction, with a torsion box for stiffness, vertical sidewalls for durability, and a titanium laminate to keep you charging hard, because, after all, it's still a Mantra. There's ash underfoot for power and top-shelf binding retention, with poplar in the tip and tail for a more lively, playful feel. If you find something it can't handle, you're probably trying to use it as a boat, or a machete, or a pair of pants; keep it pointing downhill on the snow, and you'll see why it's such a legend.
Some skis just can't handle your speeds. Slap on the K2 AMP 80XTi Ski with Marker MXC 12. 0 TC Binding and ski to your true potential with this titanal-bolstered all-mountain carver. K2 crafted this ski with RoX technology and All-Terrain Rocker which provide easy turn initiation and ample edge control in variable snow conditions. Metal Laminate (alternating layers of fiberglass and full-length sheets of Titanal metal above and below the wood core) is K2's most complex construction, and it creates a high-performance platform that's stiff, damp, and stable at speed. Hybritech Sidewalls blend sidewall and cap construction that give this ski the power and edging accuracy of sidewall construction and the lightweight feel and smooth turn initiation of cap construction. Adding to this ski's unshakable hold and effortless turn initiation is the AT RoX technology featuring Mod Suspension. This secondary core that lies on top of the ski's primary core absorbs vibrations from choppy terrain and dampens the ski to increase overall ski control, and it reduces tip skipping or wandering at speed. Titanal hubs are imbedded into the core of the ski for the most direct transmission of power from the ski binding directly to the core of the ski. The included MXC 12. 0 ski binding directly attaches to the mounting plate via the embedded Titanal hubs and operates as an integrated system. The MXC 12. 0 ski binder is adjustable up to an 12. 0 DIN setting in order to provide precise control balanced with safety.
Let's get one thing out of the way: rocker's cool, but it's pretty standard at this point. Elan's never been one to follow industry trends--remember the original "parabolic" skis?--and it's breaking trail again with the Amphibio Waveflex 88 XTI. In addition to sporting a little bit of tip rocker to smooth out rough snow and make turn initiation easier, the ski sports Elan's newest innovation, Amphibio cambered and rockered edge technology. Basically, the Amphibio has a specific left and right ski, and the inside edges are cambered to provide tons of edge grip while the outside edges are rockered to make it easy to release your uphill ski and make all sorts of different turn shapes. This design lets the ski cruise through every sort of snow and terrain, from icy groomers where aggressive edging is necessary to soft chunder where you'd rather let things slide a little bit. That's just the tip of the Amphibio's tech iceberg, though. It's built with a lively and powerful Force wood core and Waveflex sandwich construction, which work with the Amphibio profile to provide a ridiculous combination of smooth fore-aft flex and torsional rigidity, making turning easy without sacrificing the Amphibio's bomber edge grip. The RST sidewalls and dual titanium laminates keep things stiff and powerful without overwhelming your legs, and the Fusion integrated binding-mount system keeps the ski's flex smooth and consistent while increasing edge-to-edge quickness and responsiveness. If you're an all-mountain skier looking for a smooth, powerful ski unlike anything you've ridden before, the Amphibio will be right up your alley.
A pow-crushing, pillow-stomping, big-mountain gun, Armada's Magic J Ski is Tanner Hall's powder ski of choice for obvious reasons. By beefing up the dimensions of the JJ and moving the contact point forward, you get the same ease of turning and high-speed stability of the JJ, but in a wider platform that is able to handle the ultra-deep days and work their way down pillow lines with ease. Equipped with an EST Freeride Rocker profile (rockered tip and tail with regular camber underfoot), these bad boys allow for smooth, fast, sweeping turns down big lines or long groomer runs. Armada is all about durability and ensuring the life of its skis, so it gave the Js a Hybrid Ultralight wood core and AR50 sandwich sidewall construction for a high strength-to-weight ratio that you can count on when you're charging down floaty pillow lines, variable snow, or through technical early-season conditions. These all-mountain destroyers also have Laminate Matrix technology (directional layering of fiberglass) that provides a smooth, even flex pattern and torsional rigidity for stellar performance in a variety of snow conditions and terrain. In addition, you'll be grateful for the lightweight, strong 1. 7mm edges that have been heat treated for durability and 50/50 bases that offer a just-right blend of speed and durability.
Skiing isn't always about nipple-deep pow days and faceshots, so when the crowds are gone and park is cleared, reach for your Rossignol Storm Skis and make it rain. This ski keeps it real with full high camber for high-speed turns and confident edge hold in icy half-pipes. A versatile 92-millimeter waist provides a wide enough platform for all-mountain carving but is still nimble enough to spin in the park. Minicap construction reduces swing weight without sacrificing durability or strength, and the Jib Tip technology gives the tips and tails a more rounded design for smoother transitions and easier switch skiing.
