If you shred the pipe like David Wise—or aspire to—his signature 4FRNT Wise Ski is the logical choice. A full-on pipe ski, it features a traditional camber and asymmetric, directional shape for pop and flex with consistency and the necessary twin tip. The semi-cap, sidewall-less Hals construction keeps the weight manageable while increasing durability, because as you know the pipe can dish out a beating. The moderate waist width makes the ski switch edge-to-edge in a flash, while the wide sidecut radius means it won’t flutter or flip-flop during high-speed entries.
We made three shapes and he liked the one in the middle the best. We then made three more just like it, each with a different flex. While skiing on the latest version in Aspen, David won. Then he won again in Utah, and California. The skis would go out with David and win, each time returning with a renewed focus, and achievement. The process is like being part of a race room laboratory except we don’t time his runs.
|Asymmetrical:||A directional shape gives the ski a more consistent feel|
|Classic Camber:||A traditional ski shape that gives the ski maximum performance in groomed conditions|
|Hals Construction:||Woodcore layered with fiberglass, 2-piece edge with dampening followed by the topsheet and base on either side|
|Park/Pipe:||Spin, flip and slide your way to glory with our skis designed for the park and pipe|
|Semi:||Semi-cap partially wraps the topsheet around the sidewall for additional durability|
|Traditional Contact:||The two contact points of the ski are at the tips and tails|
|Twin Tip:||The tail of the ski is also upturned to allow for switch skiing and landings|
