Sandwich construction is a high-end technique that allows us to make premium skis that are better on edge and more resistant to impacts.
To us, all that matters is if the ski fits you, it's right for your ability, and you like the colour!
MID-STIFF ROCKER-CAMBER-ROCKER PROFILE
These skis are for having fun and going fast - period. We think a mid-stiff flex with a rocker-camber-rocker profile is the best way to create a poppy and playful ski that is responsive enough to perform at the highest levels.
Our most versatile ski, the VICE 97 is perfect for any intermediate to advanced skier looking for a roughly 60/40 off-piste/on-piste ski. Freestyle and smaller freeride athletes flock to the 97 thanks to its poppiness and controllability. All in all, it's a very controllable ski that works anywhere on the mountain.

"WINNIE THE POOH'S PAL TIGGER WOULD LOVE THIS SKI. ALMOST EVERY TESTER INCLUDED THE WORDS "BOUNCY" OR "PLAYFUL" ON THEIR COMMENT CARD. IF YOU LIKE TO POP OFF EVERY LITTLE ROLL, SMEAR EVERY WIND FEATURE AND TURN THE WHOLE HILL INTO A PLAYGROUND, YOU'LL FIND THIS SKI JUST AS CHARMING AS TIGGER."
