The rocker profile and tip shape are combined into one progressively changing elliptical arc, which allows the tips to plane faster in powder, deflect less in variable snow, and helps the effective edge running within the rocker length to engage in a more natural, effortless way.
Reverse Elliptical Sidecut (“RES”) is a large, convex elliptical arc that runs from boot center to tip taper. With no traditional sidecut in the tips, the skis resist hooking or catching in soft snow, giving complete turn shape freedom at any speed.
A redesigned, thinner core profile supported with additional layers of full-width carbon fiber results in light weight, tour-oriented ski.
An original amongst many imitators, the Cease & Desist returns unchanged for this year. Conceived as a deep snow, high speed weapon, the addition of RES paired with ample rocker delivers an unparalleled ride for those looking to achieve mach speeds in the deepest snow. A stiff flex keeps the skis stable at speed and provides a huge landing platform for big drops. Our 100% bamboo cores, while damp, retain significant responsiveness to keep the skis lively and responsive, even in bottomless snow.
Utilizing the same Tour Layup as the Steeple, the Cease & Desist remains light weight for a ski of its size. Our 1.8mm, 4001 Durasurf bases preloaded with wax from our hot box process make the fastest line between you and fun, a straight one.
