Eric Hjorleifson conceived ReflectTech in order to make rocker and side-cut work together. In the past, full rocker profiles effected a negative impact on the ability of a ski to edge consistently. This effect caused the tips to hook and the tails to wash out with the ski on edge. With ReflectTech, the rocker radius and the side-cut radius match, allowing the ski to edge smoothly, creating predictable carving in all conditions. ReflectTechTM virtually eliminates tip hook. The ski will engage smoothly along it’s entire length, while still giving you the float and pivotability of a fully rockered ski.
Vibration drastically reduces confidence. The VibeVeil elastic membrane situated in the tips of our rockered skis dramatically reduces chatter and weak edge hold, commonly the result of extended negative radius profiles in ski tips when used in varied to firm snow conditions. All 2015/16 skis featuring VibeVeil have a transparent window logo highlighting the very material used in each ski.
Need a ski that’s lightweight and incredibly stable? Well how about a ski that’s also playful, but can be as aggressive as you need them to be? Welcome to the Hoji, now 15% lighter than years past thanks to our all-new Pop Core, which is a combination of lightweight poplar and paulownia woods. The Hoji is the perfect ski to travel deep into the backcountry without tiring you out, but also be stable and aggressive enough to handle even the steepest of steeps. The Hoji’s full rocker shape will also give you the float in powder that you’d normally expect from a much wider ski. While the VibeVeil™ and ReflectTech™ give the ski the stability to give you all the confidence you need to plow through variable conditions like a pro.
