Rider owned, all that's being made by a bigger company is the skis (using a snowboard company out of Truckee, CA 's factory) but everything is 100% original, and has nothing to do with any other ski company.
The warranty is great. It is amazing. Simply, I don't have time to type it out right now, but look in other threads, it's been into detail there.
It is by FAR the best warranty on the market.
i wont drop out of high school for skiing, mom
4frnt.com its a sooper sick company, rider owned, and those guys care so much about how things go, that everything they do is gonna be the best.. the skis are sick... everything is good.. and theyre gettin an narly team... and theres no 'O' in 4 frnt

Poniverus and 4frnt
This is 4Frnt's response to a couple of questions I had about their skis:
Our skis were tested all season last year at Squaw Valley and Matt
rode them in competition and filming - not a single pair broke. In fact,
this summer at Camp of Champions, Matt threw a huge 540 over a transfer that
was being sessioned and broke the toe piece of the binding off. The ski was
still perfect and none of the screws pulled out at all. I think that is the
real proof. The binding was the weakest part of the system!
Finally, to top all that off, we are so confident in our skis that we offer
a 2-year warranty on them (longest in the ski industry) and a 'cost'
replacement program if you somehow manage to break them without it being a
warranty issue in that 2-year period.
On the mounting front, our skis are designed to be mounted slightly back of
center (although we do have a center mount line on the ski) in what we call
a freeride mount, which is way ahead of a traditional mounting point. We do
this because the ski is designed to be an all-mountain freeride ski - one
that you would use to charge some big mountain lines, take some runs through
the park and do whatever else is open to you that day. So, a center mount
would be good for the park, but could compromise your stability in a big
mountain situation. The freeride mount (between 3.5 and 4 mm back of
center, depending on which length you choose) will provide you will the best
of both worlds!
Hope this help give you the confidence to pick up a pair of 4FRNTs this
season. You won't be disappointed!!
