4FRNT is proud to welcome the all new SWITCH to our freeride family! Awarded by FreeSkier Magazine as the #1 ski in its category, the SWITCH enables you to use the entire mountain as a playground and expands your ability to shred in any terrain. From ripping turns of all shapes and sizes, to powering through zipper line moguls, boosting off side hits, and zooming backwards past your friends, the Switch is the only ski you want to grab when you’re heading to the hill. Its unwavering stability through crud will have your confidence soaring even when Mother Nature isn’t cooperating. Equipped with a 19 meter turn radius, zigzagging through tight trees or trenching huge turns on your favorites trails is a breeze. The Switch's lightweight Aspen/Maple core with Carbon Fiber stringers, gives you more pop and more power to boost airs and stomp landings than any ski you've click into. For those seeking to explore every nook and cranny from top to bottom on every run, it’s time to make the SWITCH!

Ski Construction and Technology

1

NeoTip™

>

Eliminating deflection, delamination and fractures in the ski tip. These three issues have long plagued the durability of freeride skis due to the abrupt change in snow conditions and tip slap on impact from catching air. The bordering material in a ski tip that joins the core end is most commonly comprised of hard, non-elastic polymers. We began experimentation in our White Room using different grades of Neoprene to withstand the shearing impacts and provide absorption for change in conditions. The result is a dampened feel that calms the ski feel and increases the durability.

Aspen-Maple Core

>

We started with clear Aspen and Maple stringers running the length of the ski at min/max tolerance of the binding screw hole pattern. To reduce weight, we eliminated the Maple stringers, making the core 100% clear Aspen and then milling a 4mm x 60cm pocket where the min/max of the binding mount will occur and use clear Maple inserts to support the binding retention without adding all the weight. We rely on carbon stringers to support the tip/tail end of the core where the Maple is no longer present.

Carbon Fiber

>

A non-elastic alternative to traditional fiberglass. The carbon runs the length of the ski like a stringer, acting as a springboard of flex, superior to what traditional fiberglass is capable of. Carbon Fiber adds an incredible amount of strength with very little added weight.

Sintered Base

>

Our premium ski base, also known in the industry as a “race base” because it integrates carbon to further strengthen its gliding properties. At 1.3mm this fast, freely gliding and tough carbon base is much more durable than other base material and matches perfectly with our 2mm edge material. The sintering process occurs prior to extrusion, where the the carbon and plastic enter into an extruder in pellet form, therefore individually contributing its own dense properties to the final product.
