while fun, there is much to be desired with this ski. it falls short in the durability category, and 4Frnt needs to catch up with its competitors and use a beefier edge.
these do perform well when they are in the original state, the original flex provides good pop while keeping stability for landing large jumps. as they got softer, stability was lost.
i liked the sidecut, and the positioning toward center. the core gets soft very quick and they do not have the thicker edges that some competing companies use.
i'd say these performed below the listed price. durability issues really hurt this ski.
4frnt has a good size range and progressive sidecut throughout the widths, which is nice, giving different sized people the same performance.
The flex has changed so much in the month i've had these skis. When i first got these skis, they had a medium flex with softer tips and tail. After only a month of riding, the flex has degrade extremely, making them very soft all over and far less stable.
These have not held up at all, the edge has pulled away from the base, the flex has changed drastically. that being said, i am much harder on skis than the average skier, and some of this may not happen with a smaller person. also the edges are thinner than others like line and armada, i had edge cracks by the end of the second day of use.
good if u like stiff park only skis not that playfull lot of pop
good ski for park and only park i Live in MN and its good for ice kickers hard landing and alot of rails
the graphic is sick in my opinon good and simple
it was pretty expensive but ok
im glad that hey made a 165 i have mine center mounted at 165 because im 13 and thats where its at in mn (i only ski park)
they were a bit weird at first just getting used to the stiffness i came from a really soft ski last year but alot of pop good stabillity
ummmmm lets see i abuse skis alot its a strong ski i also miss my grabs alot and hit my skis together when i do that i talked to the 4frnt rep and there making a new top sheet next year for 08-09
