i've broken two pairs on one season, and neither time was even in the park. the tips basically folded in half on me. the skis are light for their size and have a lot of pop, but i like my invaders a lot better for park riding. i'm not all to pleased with 4frnt after breaking two pairs in one season and then not having my skis for whistler when the ski never should have broken in the first place.
well, you see, thats the funny part. mine were conveniently out of warrenty, after 4frnt changed their warrenty, that used to be one of the best in the industry. the first time, they hooked me up with a new ski to replace the broken one for $50. not a bad deal, considering they were out of warrenty. the second time, they offered me a pair of 3 year old MSPs for wholesale price. to most people, that might seem like a deal. however, i work in a shop, and have access to a wide variety of skis at a discount. i didnt buy the MSPs through my shop though. i felt that strongly about the ski and what 4frnt was all about back then that i paid retail price for them from another shop, which they knew. why would i pay wholesale for a pair of skis that i've had terrible luck with when i could get a better ski from a company that will back their product for less money? sorry 4frnt, i'm bitter.
from what i've heard the they were having more problems with the STLs from the new factory, but it always seems that small companies have some problems wwhen they movie into new factories, i mean look at the invaders.
To whoever commented ^ about Option, you have it wrong...The ones built in option are the least durable ones made. The ones built in california, and the ones built after 4frnt switched are very durable.
ill be super rich and own mt.hood and let everybody from ns ski for free... except freezed
