With the most camber, narrowest waist, and tightest turning radius of all our skis, the Matrix offers an incredibly powerful platform with vice-like edge grip that will make ex-racers feel right at home. The meaty Response Flex Core designed specifically for the Matrix delivers immediate energy transfer to keep you in control whether blasting through icy bumps or laying down perfect arcs on groomers. When Mother Nature gives the resort a fresh new coat or you decide to venture into the woods, the early splayed tip shape delivers a little extra float and crust-busting capability compared to traditional carving designs without sacrificing the ski’s stable, reactive feel on hardpack.
RESPONSE FLEX CORE™ 2.0
Refreshed with the addition of purple heart sidewalls, the next generation of the Response Flex Core (RFC) is seamless, vertically laminated, ash and purple heart. This no nonsense burly core delivers unparalleled power to the skier while still maintaining responsiveness. Extreme torsional strength results in strong edge hold for the inner racer in you. The RFC features our signature variable width sidewall with a greater portion of purple heart at the tips and tails than underfoot. This provides a balanced flex with variable dampening and response that encourages mach speed turns on everything from fresh corduroy to bulletproof ice.
