When there's only room for one.

The aptly named 4FRNT Devastator Ski obliterates the need for a carving ski, a pow ski, or any other ski, with its all-mountain, quiver-killing power. A full rocker profile gives this mid-fat ski tons of float and smearing capability, and the versatile, moderate waist width handles pow and edge-to-edge hardpack with equal ease. The innovative Reflect Tech makes the sidecut and rocker work in harmony to eliminate tip hook or tail washout. In other words, this ski can rail without worry.

An ash and beech Mega-Block wood core is 4FRNT's most dense and damp for high-speed stability. The weight-conscious semi-cap enhances durability without burden, possible with the damp Mega-Block. All in all, this all-mountain stick is fat enough to stomp landings, rockered for float, stable at speed, and quick edge-to-edge. It's enough to make another ski cry.

Damn Devestator

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was on the turbo last year and now on the devestator, over all an awesome ski solid on groomers slays it in the pow and still have fun anywhere i go, only thing i would like to see is maybe they can make it a little bit lighter it is a bit on the heavy side.

Anybody know of any preferred mounting...

Just checked with a buddy who presses skis for 4FRNT.

He reports:

"5cm back of center is recommended. A lot of us are riding them around 2-3cm back for a more centered feel."

Hope that helps!

Great skis!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

In the process of replacing my K2 Obsetheds (105 waist), I've demoed 16-17 skis in the 98-112 mm waist category. I really enjoyed several of these skis, but none of them was so significantly better than my Obsetheds that I was tempted to buy. When the 4frnt Devastator came out, I was very interested, but after reading a few of the reviews I dismissed it with the thought that it wouldn't quite be as nimble of a ski as I was looking for. I was wrong.

4frnt came to town and I got to demo the Devastator in some heavy crud and groomers. It blew me away! I knew after my first couple turns that I was going to buy these skis. I've been looking for something that surfs and pivots in soft snow, is reasonably nimble on firm, and can rail the groomers - the Devastator is all of that. In the soft, they pivot and surf, like a lot of rocker/camber/rocker skis, but on the groomers I was able to ski just as fast as I wanted without them falling apart. They were substantial enough to hold up to heavy snow/crud just fine, although I think if I wanted to bomb right down some chunder at mach-looney, the 194 would perform better for me than the 184's (me- 5-11/170 lbs). I hit an icy patch on the groomers. I had to work a little to get an edge in, but eventually they worked. This isn't a ski I'd want if icy groomers were a regular occurrence, but they'll get you through it better than most rockered skis I've been on.

By way of comparison, I've skied the Hoji a couple times and back to back with the Devastator. I think the Hoji is the best ski I've ever been on in soft snow - they make me feel like a ski star waiting to be discovered with the way they just surf, pivot and generally flow down the mtn, but I ended up buying the Devastator. The Devastator was 90% as fun in the soft, but seemed to engage turns quicker on the firm and maybe a little more capable in crud/ice or whatever else I might encounter on a daily basis. All in all, I'm ecstatic with the Devastators.

Ultimate One Ski Quiver

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This really is the dream One Ski Quiver! Washy and playfullness of a full reverse camber but edge control tip to tail when put on edge.

I've never had a ski that slayed in deep powder as it did on hard packed groomers! Reflect Tech is the answer for reverse camber. When laid on edge it skis like a traditional camber ski.

One Stick Wonder

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Looking for a one ski quiver? Look no further! This ski is incredible. I have skied this in the 184 and the 194, which I now own. The biggest difference between the 184 and the 194 is the flex. The 194 is quite a bit stiffer and is the better ski to dominate any line you wish to ski with. If you are like my friend Thayne who skis this ski everyday and tricks off of everything then the 184 is the better option for you. I found the 184 skied groomers very well and hooked up on edge without any chatter. The 194 does not even know what chatter is and you can ski this thing as hard as you ever dreamed. If you want a ski to jib with and to ski pow with then the 184 has a lower swing weight and would be better for you. If you looking to ski big lines and love to haul the mail then the 194 is your new love. Skiing switch on these skis is simple and you can ski as fast as you dare. You might want to invest in a rear view mirror since they are so good switch. In pow both these skis are super fun. The rocker helps them rise and float well but they never feel like they want to wheelie out. The landing platform is large and you can stomp in any conditions on this ski. Unlike super rockered skis these do not feel like washing out on landings off large drops and they feel similar to a regular camber ski when landing large drops. I did not think I would like a ski with this camber profile but 4FRNT has made me think twice about reverse camber skis. Reflect Tech rocks! So far I do not have one bad thing to say about these skis. Keep up the good work 4FRNT. Rider owned and rider inspired products are what you can expect from this small but incredible company. Just look at the Wise ski or one of the 2 models they hand build with the inspiration from Hoji.

It's What Fun Is!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've tried a lot of fully-rockered skis over the years and haven't liked them. If you've chatted online with me about a pair, I've tried to talk you out of them and put you on something that has at least zero camber. But that was before I skied 4FRNT's Devestator. I didn't even know it was fully-rockered when I first skied it because it didn't have the characteristics of a reverse camber ski. It skis like a normal ski. It doesn't flop around. It has power. It's responsive. It floats over everything.

My perception of reverse camber was changed by 4FRNT's Reflect Tech. It's truly the best reverse camber design in the industry and if you're really interested in a reverse camber ski you need to consider one of them. But this is the ski in the lineup that is not only the funnest, but the best all-around for resort and side-country skiing.

The day I tested these out, I skied about a dozen other skis and the Devastator was the clear winner for the day.

If you're looking for one ski to do everything and spice up your experience like a hot red head on a blind date, this is the ski you want. If you have more questions, ask for me on backcountry's chat function M-Th 1:30-10:00 MST or meet me in the powder stashes of the Wasatch backcountry.

I was wondering about how the 184 fits in average to icy conditions (e.g. east coast) for an intermediate... I am 5'10 and 185 lb, and I've skied so far a 175 lenght full camber (no rocker) twin 100mm wide . However, I am not so very familiar with it in any conditions... Pretty difficult to maneuver in chop or mashed, especially on steep and relatively difficult to put on edge... Would this fully rocker help much on improving skills and maneuverability. Would a 184 Devastator ski shorter enough to compare to a fully cambered 175 at least? ...Nimble enough?

Responded on

Hey Marius! Great questions. The Devastator performs fairly well in icy conditions. Like most twin tips, you can get them to go where they need to go on an icy slope.

Reverse camber designs have come a long way over the last few years. When they first entered the market, the suggestion was to get the ski 10 cm longer than a normal camber ski. The Devastator doesn't follow that old rule. When the Devastator is put on edge, nearly the whole ski is in contact with the snow, except for the twin tips. So the 184 skis like a 182. The 174 would be more nimble for you in trees or bumps, but for open bowls you should be able to handle a 184. It's a very easy and enjoyable ski.

Thanks a lot, Cameron!...
actually my intention is to mount them with some AT binder and take 'em everywhere on the mountain. Except the resorts' groomers, my descents come with extremely variable conditions, from icy hardpack to sticky slush, and there's where I've encountered most of my steering problems with the traditional camber. Not to much chopped and bumps since the places are not so very 'popular' to resort skiers... trees neither. Thus, I would rather go with the 184 since with the fully cambered 175 I still had that "fallin' over the tips" feeling.
At this point my only concern remains with their weight, otherwise I m ready to pull the trigger :)

Very versatile and fun all mountain ski!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Even though this ski is new to the market this year, I was lucky enough to hop on a pair last year. I ended up having so much fun on them that I just picked up a pair. The Devastator is super appealing for a 1 ski quiver. Fully rockered and fat enough to ski surprisingly well in pow. Stiff and slim enough to really crush it in anything hardpack. Was able to sample them in pretty variable conditions that offered me a great chance to really test out they're versatility. At the end of the day, they are just a ridiculously fun ski to have on any day at your resort. I can't wait to be ripping them around Alta this winter! I highly recommend.
