For park riders who want a ski that’s powerful enough to absorb huge landings, yet playful enough to throw a 270-on, look no further than the 4FRNT Switchblade. The traditional camber profile and stiff handling give you the speed you need to huck pipe, rails, kickers and boxes with confidence.

Slightly stiffer than mid-flex, they’re perfect for advanced intermediate park riders and up who want a powerful freestyle ski for popping huge ollies and stomping rail landings.

Built around 4FRNT’s Hyper-Block core; comprised of Poplar and Birch giving the core freestyle flex with quick response and powerful pop. This is then layered with directional fibreglass laminates on the top and bottom which help to give the core a consistent and even flex pattern, whilst also directing power input towards the edges of the ski for increased response and sustained edge hold. Topped off with tip-to-tail carbon stringers for unrivalled pop and rebound.

The topsheet is bonded to the core using semi-cap construction. This method of pressing partially folds the topsheet over the edges of the ski where it’s fused with the sidewall. This reduces the instances of topsheet delamination and unsightly chips while also helping to bolster the edges against side impacts from rails, rocks, trees and unseen threats. This is complemented by shock absorbing ABS sidewalls which help to deflect impact with rails, boxes, rocks and tree trunks which would normally cause unseen core damage, edge dings or worse, blowouts.

The super-fast sintered base provides reduced friction and increased wax absorption meaning you can charge faster on the mountain and go longer between services.

Topped off with classic Traditional camber; this gives the skis unrivalled control, pop, edge hold and stability in all terrains. This makes it a great choice for riders who want reliable and obedient skis no matter where you are on the mountain.

What we say: “The 4FRNT Switchblade is a park rider’s dream. Powerful, poppy and abuse-proof, they’re ideal for all-day-all-season-long park laps. When you’re compelled to leave the park behind for a few hours though, they’re responsive and obedient enough to confidently handle anything from blues to blacks.”

Size Guide

The size chart below provides a basic guide to finding the right ski length based on your height and ability but there are several other factors you should consider before choosing your new skis!

The two most relevant considerations when interpreting the chart below are your weight and the type of skiing you intend to do. 

Weight: If you’re a heavier built that the average person of your height then we suggest choosing a longer ski as a heavier skier requires more edge to grip the snow and more base area for floatation in powder and cruddy snow.  Conversely, if you’re a slimmer build you may want to consider going for a shorter ski as you’ll need less edge / ski to support your weight than someone of an ‘average’ build.

Skier Type: Secondly, if you want a ski that’s going to inspire confidence when you’re skiing fast and you like to ski faster than most, then a longer ski is going to be preferable.   The additional edge and float provided by a longer ski will give you a more stable ride.  If, however, you’re more freestyle focussed and you want a ski that’s going to be more nimble and easier to manoeuvre at low speeds then a slightly shorter ski will work better for you as there will be less ski to manage.

If you have any queries at all on finding the right ski or ski size for you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for further advice.
