Over a decade ago Eric Hjorleifson clicked into the Renegade for the first time and launched his legendary ski career. Pioneering human powered big mountain ascents and iconic high-speed descents, Eric has reinvented how we look at big mountain lines. It’s a ski you can trust for charging hard with no speed limit and stomping high-impact landings. In the words of Hoji, "I just want powder skiing to be easy for everyone."
Hoji's signature hard charging pow weapon has returned this year with a vengeance and is more dialed than ever before. It's innovative shape, paired with the hard charging flex you all have grown to love, and a new and improved rocker profile will have you shredding lines just like Eric Hjorleifson intended!
This seasons incredible graphic was hand painted by Andrea Mueller, a close friend of Hoji, out of Whister BC.

DIDN'T BELIEVE THE HYPE.
These are the best skis money can buy - On a PERFORMANCE to : FUN ratio. All I can say is smile, and push the order button, if your are seeking a new or refined sliding sensation, are athletic, and committed, they reward!
This ski redefined powder ski for me. The shape and length was a paradigm shift for me. he reflect tech works exactly as advertised: super smooth turn initiation that's super predictable at high speeds. This is a hard charging powder/crud weapon that makes you look at the mountains in a different way.
Ski Construction and Technology
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.
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.
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.
A complex insert which adjoins the core end and runs out to the tail edge perimeter. Full wrap metal edge skis often stood on their tail end have a tendency to delaminate, due the weak joint bearing the skis weight between metal, rubber and fiberglass. A tail block eliminates the sensitive joint between laminates and edge and allows for non-invasive customization for skin tail clips if so desired.
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.
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.
