We are avid believers in the idea of the right tool for the job, and disciples of the quiver school of ski ownership. However, we realize not everyone enjoys the same privilege, and even we get analysis paralysis when it’s time to leave with a single pair—be that from the truck for the day or the country on an international flight.

The Commander 102 offers the best characteristics of its freeride-comp lineage: a directional profile with a flat, supportive tail, incredible confidence and composure at speed, race-worthy power and edge hold, and plenty of rope to hang yourself as high off the deck as you want. But because we have high insurance deductibles, we dialed things back just enough to make it—in the right length, mind you—surprisingly easy to dump speed in a fit of panic or pilot through tight spaces when need be.

The Goldilocks result of spending countless mornings debating between the hardpack-ripping 98 and the big-line bomber 108 of yesteryear, hoping the conditions match our decision—and concluding that we’d like to keep our options open.

An all-new ski, inside and out, it boasts a completely new shape and profile for faster engagement and intuitive driveability. Inside, it’s packing our most substantial construction to date, and a round, supportive flex profile for optimal support and composure in adverse conditions. On the outside, a brand new, meticulously refined sidecut for an even longer, more accessible effective edge provides unshakable edge hold. A bit deeper tail rise complements the sidecut to make it more docile when you’ve bitten off more than you can chew or you’re skiing at half speed, running on fumes.

The Commander 102 drives harder and carves faster while staying calmer in the clutch than any of its predecessors. Hearing that, we know some of you get big-headed and think you  need the biggest and baddest, so here’s your disclaimer: If all you’re after is a big stick to pose with in the tram line—this ain’t it. Unless you’ve got the skills to pay the bills we  strongly suggest sizing down from where your ego steers you. It’s still  plenty supportive, not to mention more fun to ski. Believe us—we didn’t even bother testing big sizes until we had things dialed in.

So here’s what you’re getting: First and foremost a ski designed to excel in punchy, chunky, and choppy conditions, built to ski fast, carve hard, and expand your comfort zone. For those of you who decide to go big, you’ll find a big-mountain ski that pushes the limits of your envelope and puts pucker airs to bolts—poor conditions be damned. That’s not a threat, for the record. It’s just a promise.

    • This is a general guideline and is only a basic suggestion of the proper size. Where you ski, how you ski, and what skis you've ridden in the past should be taken into consideration.
    • The Commander is a directional ski with a stout profile, rearward mount and flat tail. It skis long and is less forgiving as a result. When in doubt size down.
    • If you are still on the fence and ski confidently and aggressively size up. If you ski more conservatively or timidly size down.
    • Beginner assumes a basic understanding of and ability to ski. For those who have never skied or cannot ski down runs without falling we recommend renting/demoing to start.
    If you are unsure, have questions, or feel your recommended size is incorrect, please chat, call or email us. We are happy to discuss specific sizing based on your build, skiing style, and existing quiver / past skis.

Front Rocker

ingredients

Full length, knot free, vertically laminated in house. Strong, damp and burly, European beech provides the pinnacle of composure and calmness at the highest speeds in the most challenging conditions.

Extruded sidewalls constructed of modified Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS) provide stiffness, dampening, and durability, which allow for more impact resistance and easier repairs that stay put so you can bring the abuse year after year, season after season.

Modified Carbon Fiber Hybrid Composite Structure to compliment the characteristics of two sheets of Titanal metal laminates and stiffer wood cores for increased dampening and faster response.

We use a textured nylon topsheet material enhanced with sublimated graphics‒a non-toxic and eco-friendly alternative to silkscreen. We chose this topsheet material to ensure optimal durability and impact resistance while maintaining crisp and bright graphics.

Skis are tools not treasures and that means they need to take a beating which is why use carbon infused sintered UHMWPE (Ultra High Molecular Weight PolyEthylene). Harder, faster and with better wax absorption and retention than extruded bases this is the industry leader for performance and longevity.

Rubberized VDS foil is placed at strategic locations throughout the construction to increase bond strength and provide vibration damping for more stability and increased control.

There are only a handful of edge manufacturers in the world. We go straight to the source for the best of the best. We use only 2.2mm Rockwell 48 hardened steel edges. Heat treated additionally in house to ensure you get nothing but the absolute most out of your skis.
