The sidecut consists of a smaller turn radius in the tip that works that in conjunction with a larger turn radius in the tail, creating a directional ski that is stable going straight, but will easily carve once the turn is initiated and the ski is on edge.
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.
Though it was the tour de force for speeding through variable conditions, hardpack, crud, and even small children, even we have to admit that the original Wrenegade was, at times, a bit much. With that in mind, we’ve redesigned it in a more functional platform that offers true all-mountain performance at two different waist widths.
For those looking for the same stern but toothy grin in a narrower package, the Wrenegade 102 carries the banner established by the Tychoon and Vicik of previous years. Our Elliptical Rocker Profile aids float in soft snow, while a stiff, slightly rockered tail adds maneuverability and allows speed to be dumped quickly when needed. Both models feature a redesigned tip shape which optimizes stability in crud and other variable conditions.
