The shorter, slightly narrower sibling to the Proof, the Ellipse is anything but a toned-down version designed for less-serious skiers. Built with the same Progressive Flex core technology and featuring a similarly stable mid-fat platform, the Ellipse delivers a lightweight, lively, and surprisingly damp feel thanks to purple heart sidewalls that absorb vibrations and encourage effortless turn initiation. The early-rise, twin-tip shape planes well in powder or crust, and a tapered tail gives the Ellipse a playful, pivot-able feel that facilitates quick changes of direction. Camber underfoot and a trustworthy torsional flex ensure a rock-solid ride when it’s time to open things up on the steeps.
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.
