Inspired by the extended vertical drop and sometimes-variable conditions in Utah’s Little Cottonwood Canyon, the Mode is the go-to option for big-mountain skiers who need their sticks to perform between storms just as well as they do after an epic powder dump. Unexpectedly responsive for such a wide ski, the Mode benefits from an aggressive sidecut and a springy Progressive Flex core that efficiently transfers energy to the edges for grip you can count on. Purple heart sidewalls dampen vibrations to keep you chatter-free and in-control whether you’re dropping into pristine chutes, busting through tracked-out chunder, or just racing your buddies back to the bottom of the tram on a sunny groomer day.
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.
