Description

Ski like you're on the run from the law.

Every year, Eric Hjorleifson pushes himself into bigger, gnarlier, and deeper terrain, so it's not surprising that he's become known for designing his own gear, the better to handle his demanding riding. His newest creation is the 4FRNT Renegade Ski, which is the fattest board in 4FRNT's line, making it Hoji's tool of choice on ultra-deep, ultra-fluffy days when his namesake ski just won't cut it. You won't find Eric riding the resort groomers, so the Renegade's designed with a full rocker profile to take advantage of all the untracked cold smoke you find, and has a tapered tip and tail to allow for easy smearing and gigantic power slides.

Sliding's great, but Hoji gets up on edge better than pretty much anyone in the game, so it's only logical that the Renegade uses Reflect Tech to match the sidecut and camber profiles, offering smooth, hook-free carving and more effective edge than a fully rockered ski has any right to. The wood core's sandwiched between two fiberglass laminates for a stiff, powerful ride that's not super heavy, and 4FRNT's unique Hals semi-cap construction foregoes sidewalls for a full wrap that transmits silly amounts of energy to the ski's edges for power and control. The new Renegade even has a special tail block, which supports the skis when you're using them as walking sticks to help you pick your way through rocks, up ridges, and over rough terrain, so you won't have any more excuses for not lining up the biggest, baddest, and deepest line on the mountain.

Magnificent ski

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I skied the 196 renegade last year and it was a bit of a brute for resort skiing. I had the opportunity to let them run when the rope dropped on mineral basin at snowbird, and I realized how fun a tool these skis can be in untracked snow. I'm not sure I've ever skied that fast and felt so at home. However, I'm 6'0, 210lb, and strong, and they were really difficult to thrown around in tight spots. They demanded constant physical input. The 196 is not what I wanted for a daily driver.
So this year I purchased the 186 thinking the shorter length would be more practical. I could not have been more spot-on. So far I've skied about 10 days in varying conditions. These skis will go as fast as you can take them. I was a little afraid that the full rocker + shorter (186) length would not be able to handle high speed through rough run-outs, but they've handled everything I've thrown at them. For a ski with a long turn radius, they also make short turns very well and they have a very comfortable sweet spot. I took alternating runs with the Rossi Super 7, which likes a similar riding stance, and the renegades were worlds more stable in all conditions. The Rens still reward physical input and deliberate effort, but with the 186 you can get away with being lazy after a few laps. If you have room to let them run, though....sweet baby Jesus this is a really fun ski.
Here's the breakdown. If you're considering the renegade, you've probably done your homework and you know they're an infinitely capable surfy charger. I just want to say they are much more than that. They are not for skiing boiler-plate, but every other day, you will grab the renegades. They make you a better skier. I wont tell you exactly how, but anyone who's skied them knows exactly what I'm talking about.

Big Sticks for Big Days

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The team at 4FRNT has nailed it when it comes to producing versatile, hard charging skis. The Renegade is their flagship White Room ski and has been tested and toyed with right here in the Wasatch. It is a no-punches pulled type of ski that demands attention and respect. Don't get lazy with these boards or they will ski you right off the mountain. At 5'5"/120 lbs, the 186 is more than enough ski for me. I have had these out in the deepest of days and have never felt more confident rallying these in the steep pow fields of Snowbird's High Baldy. Yet they are nimble enough to still have fun in the trees down low. If you like to go fast and take chances, this is the ski for you.

Best one yet!

This is the best version of the Renegade ever! The new topsheet is super durable and cuts down on chipping and delaming. Along with the semi cap sidewalls and full rocker this ski is a must for the hard charging skiers out there. Do yourself a favor and buy these now!

Finally, a real powder ski

The Renegade revolutionized what people thought a powder ski was supposed to be. This ski is wide, stiff, yet nimble and responsive. 4FRNT changed the game by bringing us this unicorn. If you've ridden it then you know, if not what are you waiting for? On a pow day there isn't anything I'd rather be standing on. It's basically cloud 9.
