Description

A fully rockered ski with a super-stiff flex that can charge anything you can.

The stiff 4FRNT Renegade Ski provides the unrelenting power necessary to charge hard during pow days and race through big-mountain terrain once the skies clear. Designed by Cody Barnhill and Eric Hjorleifson, this reverse-cambered fatty was made for ripping Alta pow and ticking off classic Wasatch lines once everything else gets tracked. Its more-rigid pro-pleasing flex was designed for the fastest, most fearless skiers in the west who need a ski that can power through any type of snow without chattering to pieces.

  • Full reverse camber profile floats through the deepest of the deep and provides a playful platform for slarving through turns and quickly dumping speed
  • Indi-Block core features maple laminates over poplar to ensure a reliably stiff flex for busting through crud and powering through ludicrously fast turns
  • Hals Construction fuses the core, fiberglass, base, and top sheet but has no sidewall, which enables the highest amount of energy transference and greatest control in big-mountain terrain
  • Long-lasting fiberglass sheets add longitudinal and torsional stiffness for sustained raging on crud and hardpack between dumps
  • Dampening system features rubber foil between the edge and core to silence chatter during high-speed turns and run-outs
  • 122mm underfoot keeps you on top of the deepest snow inbounds or way out in the backcountry and provides a super-stompable landing pad during big cliff drops
  • Reflect Technology sidecut enables stable carving despite the ski's reverse camber design—its tapered tip and tail prevent hooking in deep snow and crud without limiting power during any type of turn you need to make

Fast and Stable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is an awesome ski. I use it for everything. Skiing some big lines in the BC alpine as well as pillows and through the blower pow filled trees. Really skis well at high speeds and is not as manuverable at lower speeds but is still a great option when getting new skis. I use it as my every day ski in BC.

I'm a big fan of the now 86ed 194 cm Salomon El Dictator as a charger with flat tail & subtle tip rocker. I have heard awesome things about these skis. How big is the rocker on the tip & tail??? If you know the mm length that would be a plus. I can't say I've heard a bad thing about these skis, plus I know Cody Barnhill from my days when I used to ski Alta.

If you go on 4FRNT's website and enter the live chat they will most likely be able to tell you the exact measurements of the rocker in the tip and tail.

Why are you still reading reviews? If you have even considered getting Renegades, then you will love Renegades! The end.

THE ski for aggressive skiers.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

If you are looking to ski anything aggressively, in steep terrain and lots of snow, this is the ski you need. Charges like a freight train from hell, but can surf a turn on a dime thanks to the reflect tech rocker/sidecut profile. If you are riding a big mountain, this is all you need.

4FRNT Skis Renegade Ski

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These things truck. If you're not a solid expert skier looking to play on fast, big lines, look elsewhere. Coming from a strong racing background, I really love these for charging around snowbird. They want to go straight and don't care what type of snow you're on or what's ahead. What makes them special is the ability to smear and ditch speed due to the shape and rocker pattern, you can slide the edges for days then make a turn on a dime. I clock in at about 6'1, 160 and despite a past love for long skis see absolutely no need for the 196. The 186 was extremely stable, I never once wished for more, and the shorter length made them feel really nimble in tight situations since it's actually a shorter ski than I'm used to. Normally I am all about sizing up, especially with a fully rockered ski, but with these I would not hesitate to tell most people to size down. Also look out for the BC/4frnt collab version with an alternate topsheet coming in a couple weeks, they are super slick!

How does the Renegade compare to the new Hoji or CRJ offering from 4FRNT?

Best Answer Responded on

They're an entirely different animal from the CRJ, which is a jibby, fun, playful pow ski. The Renegade is a big, burly ski that only wants to charge, they can handle pretty much any condition as long as you're willing to go fast, definitely not for anyone aside from a high expert skier. The Hoji is basically a smaller version, they are a bit friendlier all around and will be better for most people, and make a great option for touring due to their reasonably light weight for a big ski. I'll be skiing on both this season.

What size should I go with? The 186 or 196?
I'm 5'11- 6'0 and weigh 205 lb.
I ski lots of pillows, trees, deep pow, steep lines and lots of cliffs and drops.

Responded on

You are right in the sweetspot on the 4FRNT recommended rider heights for the 186.

Responded on

Frankly, I wouldn't hesitate to go 196. In my experience, the 186 is really best for people (like me) who weigh below about 170#. Most of the people I know who say they don't like the Ren are people who weigh 180# or more and tried the 186.

If it's starting to feel like a Goldilocks situation and you're not sure you can handle the 196, also consider the 193 Cease & Desist or 191 Billy Goat from the company ON3P. Both are burly skis with a nice long turn radius...and they're made in the USA as well.

Love, love, love my Rens though!

Responded on

Go for 196 cm 'long skis truck, short skis suck.- Glen Plake. Shorter skis lose stability at high speeds.

Responded on

So it really depends on where and what style of skiing you are planning on doing. When I ski the bird exclusively and I am charging big turns and have time to stop I would hop on the 96's, but if I am ripping the tight trees of Alta or little billy goat lines the 186 will work perfectly

Responded on

I found at 6'2" and 195lbs + gear the 186 was pretty good in tight areas like trees, however I found that I wanted more when opening up in bigger areas. Since I already have a tree ski I opted to size up to the 196. Don't be fearful of this ski - it skis effortlessly

The Ren rocks!

If you're looking for a versatile ski that rips deep pow and big lines, look no further than the 4FRNT Renegade. I was blown away at the performance of this ski. It's most at home in the deep stuff but can handle groomers and crud better than any fully rockered ski I've ever been on. The reflect tech where the rocker radius matches the side cut radius, allow the ski to transition super well from slarving to carving. Lay it on edge and it lays trenches like a GS ski. The maple/poplar core give it a nice stiff flex for excellent stability. Plus they make it in the good ole US of A, down the road from bc.com out of the White Room, 4FRNT's in-house production and R&D facility. Hoji was on to something with this one.

The weapon of choice

I have been on the Renegade for the last couple of years and cannot sing the praises enough of this big mtn stick. It is an extremely versatile ski considering the hefty dimensions and stiff tail. They say that it is fully rockered, but the tail is fairly flat so that it will rail even in non-blower conditions. The boys at 4frnt made a few tweaks in the construction process for this season and have honed even further one of the best skis I have ever been on. Get on them before they are gone!
