Designed with freestyle progression in mind, the all-new Ballistic is primed to throw down everywhere from sidecountry lines to side hits to spring park laps. Light enough to spin and wide and damp enough to huck into powder, this model features the most tip and tail rocker of any ski other than our powder-specific Limit. Nearly a true twin, the Ballistic features a tiny bit of taper for stability when charging super-steep lines, but remains predictable while taking off or landing switch. The proprietary tip and tail shape reduces drag and weight, and helps break the snow’s surface tension to prevent submarining on deep landings. And of course, you still get our signature purple heart sidewalls for incredible strength, dampness, and edge grip.
PROGRESSIVE FLEX CORE™ 2.0
Immediately recognizable by its stunning purple heart sidewall, the next generation Progressive Flex Core (PFC) is an evolutionary step forward from the original. By utilizing a trio of ash, poplar, and purple heart wood torsional rigidity and sidewall durability have both improved without packing on a single pound. PFC is the secret sauce in most of our model range. By utilizing a variable width sidewall, meaning a greater portion of the core is composed of purple heart at the tips and tails, the core produces a variable dampening and response that encourages confidence. This unique and balanced flex pattern provides high speed stability and effortless linking of turns.
