Do you consider turning nothing more than an annoying (but occasionally necessary) way to slow down? If straight-lining open, steep terrain no matter the conditions sounds like your idea of a good time, the Function’s ridiculously damp, stiff, and stable feel will plaster a perma-grin on your face the first time you ski it. Stiffer than the Mode and with a higher tip rocker, the Function floats like a dream on the waist-deep days, and excels at powering through crust and chop when you’re hunting for leftovers. Camber underfoot, a huge turning radius, and a flat tail shape mean the ride stays predictable at even the most ludicrous speeds, and the Progressive Flex core with vibration-dampening purple heart sidewalls will keep you tracking true in no-fall situations.
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.
