Like a Swiss Army knife, the Heroine is a versatile tool ready for any adventure, whether taking hot laps on the piste, cruising through the park or getting pitted in the soft stuff. Updated for 16/17, A 90mm waist, updated dual-radius sidecut and transition zone technology, poplar/beech core, cap construction and ABS in the tip and tail make the ski feel at home in the moguls and in trees, whilst simultaneously ready for high speed laps on-piste or floaty 360’s.

POPLAR / BEECH CORE
Poplar is a softwood that saves weight and has absorbent qualities that increase the ski’s dampness, while beech is a hardwood that provides strength and snap, for a playful, responsive ski.
Blended transition zones” use complex curve geometries where both positive/negative sidecut and where rocker/camber meet to make turn initiation fluid yet the whole ski more stable and controllable in all conditions.
Having a cap construction underfoot and a sidewall on the tip and tail gives these skis the durability of a cap where they need the most protection, while also making sure the tip and tail have the responsiveness and torsional stiffness of sidewall construction.
DUAL RADIUS SIDECUT
Borrowed from world-cup race skis, two different radii on the one ski – a tighter radius forward of the boot centre coupled with a 20% larger sidecut behind – increases the edge-to-edge responsiveness so you can carve short turns whilst retaining high speed stability and control through the tail of the ski.
