The Devastator has been completely redesigned this season while preserving the freeride DNA that always made it a team favorite. We worked hard with our athletes and engineers to increase its ability to charge, surf, and stomp in a much larger variety of snow conditions. The new multi radius Reflect Tech™ rocker profile enables your tips to naturally rise to the surface easier than ever before, so you can slash turns, navigate tight trees and ride away from cliff drops like a pro. This shape also provides a stronger grip on edge, so when you roll the ski over the sidecut geometry and pre-bent rocker shape work in unison to carve turns just like a cambered ski. This increased versatility gives you more fun with more control everywhere you take them. We’ve also upgraded to an Aspen core with carbon fiber stringers for a 10% weight savings; reducing swing weight in the air and making it a lighter, nimbler freeride weapon. You’ll experience more energy and pop than ever before, boosting your confidence to ski faster, charge harder, and go bigger. Click into the Devastator and buckle up for the ride of your life!

Hands down the best ski I've been locked into. Point them into whatever you want, and the skis will say "aye, aye captain". No high speed flapping, just super agile bombers. I really love them, but my skiing buddies hate the fact that I gained 40% more skill after I got them.
THE ZEN OF DEVASTATION
So easy to ski, like magic, but more enlightening. I made effortless turns through powder, wind blown, chunky, and wet snow all with speed and style on some steep terrain up at the Montana Snowbowl. Full-Send all day. Please make a new category on your website called "Every Condition".
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.
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.
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.
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.
ReflectTech™ refers to our secret formula in which our rocker shape works in perfect unison with the shape of our sidecut through a blend of multiple size raddi. This creates one smooth curve along its length and provides you the best performance across all snow conditions.
When the ski is laid flat, you’ll rise out of the powder, float and maneuver with far more ease. However, when this same ski is leaned over on edge, the sidecut geometry works in conjunction with the pre-bent rocker shape to carve turns on firm snow like a cambered ski. ReflectTech™ has enabled us to achieve unprecedented performance on a far larger variety of terrain.
