The Vandal transforms your mountain into a freeride paradise, making every side hit, mogul and roller an opportunity to play. The ski’s stable flex underfoot stomps big airs and charges through crud, while the playful tip and tail make it easy to butter and surf. The versatile sidecut and poppy camber will have you carving your way from feature to feature, ollie'ing over any Jerry that gets in your way. When you jump off the side of the trail into your favorite tree stash, the mellow tip rocker will keep you afloat with style and ease. From throwing tricks in the terrain park to boosting airs off cat tracks, the Vandal guarantees you get the most out of every run and progress your freeride skills faster than you ever thought possible. Grab yourself a pair of Vandals this season and become the most wanted shredder on the slopes!

Ski Construction and Technology


Semi Cap ABS Sidewall


Similar to how you construct a sandwich, layers of premium raw material pile high into a 3D cavity that secures the shape outline with an ABS sidewall over edge. The semi cap design provides longevity and durability of the top sheet edge by stepping down from the square edge of the sidewall leaving a smooth 360 degree round-contoured edge perimeter. The exposed sidewall protects the core from moisture while also dampening vibrations.

Semi Cap ABS Sidewall

Poplar-Beech-Poplar Core

Ideal for freestyle skis which need a poppy core but with crisp edge hold, we choose a combination of Poplar and Beech. The Beech center runs the length with 20mm Poplar beams along the edge give this core great torsional strength to weight ratio.

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.
