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.
For the fastest deep powder ski on the market look no further. The Renegade was the first shape we introduced with the ReflectTech™ design; mirroring the 35m sidecut radius with a 35m reverse camber radius. This intuitive design approach allows for this 122mm ski to perform exceptionally well on and off edge, in wind slab as well deep snow conditions. This effortless turn initiation makes for very poppy and playful smear turns. By incorporating the carbon fiber reinforced Neo Core, we shaved nearly 400 grams off the previous version to make the Renegade even more functional for ski touring than ever before.
