SEARCHBAR, i also asked a couple of questions like this before and got told to use the search bar, it is in the top right hand corner next to the twitter and facebook links it really does all that people say it does, and more(it gives you cookies, but dont tell anyone).
but yes, the afterbang has ten carbon stringers(olliband) that run from the tip to the tail. this makes the afterbangs more poppy and responsive rather than the noodle the invader was. although since the afterbang is still a medium soft ski you might not want to take it on any huge booters. keep it under 40 ft
i just got mine and they feel sturdy, really sturdy, and supposedly with the new construction it gives them more torsional stiffnes which is what transfers power to the edge of your ski, making it less likely to wash out on big jumps even if it is still a pretty butter ski, definitely better imo than the invader. and ive seen the pros who have any ski they want hitting some pretty big jumps with them, so if your an average skier in an average park(jumps top at about 50 like mine) then you should be pretty safe with them.
