The Frankenski concentrates everything you want in a jib ski into a beam of pure mutant radiation. A bamboo core, Triple Camber, and semi-cap construction combine to create a street-stalking feature slayer that can take every bit of punishment it dishes out.
We’ve updated it for the 2019-20 season by adding six millimeters of width underfoot and a few centimeters to both sizes, making the new version a bit more stable and versatile when you’re outside the park. Oh, and this might be the best topsheet graphic we’ve ever issued, but that’s beside the point.
Mahalo, you fuckin’ surfers.

Triple Camber Twin Rocker
Rocker at the tip and tail, low center camber, and two sections of micro-camber embedded in front of and behind the binding. Rocker and low camber let the ski surf and slash in powder, while the micro-camber sections create focused edge pressure on hardpack for carving.
BAMBOO WOOD COREFull length, knot free, in house laminated wood core gives this ski its unique blend of liveliness and dampening. All wood sourced in the USA.
UHMW SIDEWALLThe strongest and most durable sidewall material on the market ensures you have the best edge hold available while ripping the piste.
PARK LAYUPA custom blend of triaxial fiberglass and carbon fiber for torsional rigidity and longitudinal pop, with additional lightweight glass and vibration dampening rubber for hard landings.
4001 DURASURF BASEHands down the most durable base on the market. Dont worry about those snow snakes.
2.2 EURO EDGEThere are only handful of edge manufacturers in the world. We go straight to the source in Europe to offer the best edge possible. We do additional heat treating and bonding prep in house to make sure your edge stays sharper, lasts longer and can handle a beating.

Best Single Ski Quiver Park Ski
The Frankenskis are unbelievably easy to ski on in most conditions compared to other park skis; I would dare to say this is probably the best single ski quiver park ski out right now. I'm in love with the camber that presses out to flat with the microcam fore and aft of the underfoot. It feels like a flat underfoot ski with small grip zones for the pucker factor moments. Yes they do carve, but its not like a traditional camber, its a bit more slarvy then that. They are Incredibly light in the 168, but the snappy and responsive core construction makes them a very playful and fast ski. Easy to stomp landings in tricky situations and huck butters off lips, spins feel effortless. I'm going to de-tune the edges underfoot section and the tips /tails for a more surfy feel, For reference I am mounted about two back from true center, the ball of my foot is right behind the first microcam, I think anywhere in between 2-4 back from center is perfect. I might pick up the longer length for more pop.
Well let me start by saying these are the first actually fun pair of skis I have owned all the other ones I have had I would compare to a piece of wood. These thangs are flexy, light, amazing in park and they shred east coast pow almost like nothing. Prices of these skis are a little above average but far worth it for their performance!
