We thought that maybe the design principles we developed through Renegade production could be transferred to other skis suited for other purposes. We continued the innovation spawned by the Renegade and developed the Hoji; a lighter ski, with a tighter turning radius and narrower waist, but still featuring Reflect-Tech. We found the Hoji excelled in areas we thought the Renegade didn't. Essentially the two skis complemented each other perfectly.
"Later that night, I went back to the office where Eric remained busy crafting a new narrower shape out of the same camber forms of the Renegade. I arrived just in time, music blaring with smoke in the air, fitting the edges shortly after mixing the pot of resin. I did as he asked, with each swipe of resin and with every layer of glass, we pieced together the ski he’d been dreaming of for weeks. Once out off the press, Eric swiftly packed them away for his early flight back to Whistler the next day and that was all we saw of him for a while."—Matt Sterbenz
