Amphibo Profile: Amphibo technology is a revolutionary ski design that integrates both rocker and camber profiles into dedicated left and right skis. Amphibo skis feature a cambered inside edge assuring precision, edge grip and stability, while a rockered outside edge provides forgiveness, turning ease and smooth transitions.

SST Construction: The SST Construction provides quick, nimble and direct power transmission from the ski to snow as well as providing exceptional torsional rigidity.

Tubelite Woodcore & Carbon Rods: To create TubeLite Woodcore, two super lightweight carbon tubes are inserted into a lightweight laminated wood core. These tubes run the length of the ski following the arc of the side cut. They provide torsional stability and powerful rebound while allowing for material reduction of the core. The result is incredible lightweight response and stability.

100% Recycled Vaportip Reinforcement: Using 100% recycled materials, mostly from plastic water bottles, these vapor inserts are advanced composites integrated into the tip and tail area of the ski’s core. These inserts reduce weight and vibration, dramatically improving stability and ensuring a smooth ride even in the most demanding conditions.

QuadRod Reinforcement: Similar to the TubeLite woodcore which has two carbon rods running the length of the ski following the side cut, the QuadRod adds an additional two carbon rods to the center of the ski; one in the tip and one in the tail. It delivers next level smoothness and grip, with a natural flex pattern for the perfect blend of playful, yet powerful performance.
