4FRNT Hoji (2013)
As Eric Hjorleifson has moved further into the backcountry, his pro model has come with him. The new Hoji features a lightweight core and a versatile, tour-friendly 112-millimeter waist. Full rocker from tip to tail makes it especially pivoty and smeary in soft conditionsï¿½its greatest strength. Initially it had trouble gripping hardpack, but full angulation allowed it to make smooth, large-radius turns with no discernible speed limit. Notes: The HOJI uses 4FRNT's Reflect Techï¿½matching the ski's fully rockered profile with its side cutï¿½to provide a stable ride that turns quickly while maintaining stability at high speeds. With a 112-millimeter waist, it's most at home touring or on pow days.
