An all-mountain ride with a particular lust for corduroy.
The Prophet Flite Ski is a narrower, lighter, and livelier version of the Prophet series and it loves to lay deep trenches in the groomers. Line didn't axe the early rise from the tip or tail though, and there's still that extra-thick base and edge material you've come to depend on for the occasional trip through the park. Just think of the Flite Ski as the Jack Russel Terrier in a family of bulldogs—it might have short legs, but its twice as nimble and fast.
- Early-rise camber profile allows the tip and tail to float above powder, helps you surf over choppy conditions, and makes hooking a tip in deep snow a thing of the past
- Traditional camber underfoot gives you steady edge control and the ability to carve deep turns instead of sliding
- Maple Macro Block core uses two full-length pieces of durable maple surrounded by springy aspen wood so you get the best of both core personalities
- 4D Fibercap construction wraps the wood core with fiberglass reinforcement to increase durability and improve ski responsiveness
- Directional Flex gives this ski a softer tip that planes above soft snow quickly and initiates turns easier while the stiff tail provides power at the end of your turns and aids stability at high speed
- Fatty Base and Edge means a thicker base and edge for increased ski durability and tuning lifespan
- 85mm waist width is skinny enough to really lay down deep turns but just wide enough to keep you powering through choppy snow and prevent you from going completely under on deep days
- 5 Cut Sidecut shape blends five different sizes of sidecut radius into a single shape for ultimate turn shape versatility

Not too shabby...
I've use these bad boys a few times in medium/shallow pow, steeps, glades, and corduroy. I admit that it took me a good day to find the sweet spot in these skis, but once you do you're in for some fun. They carve great (though they prefer a small-medium radius turn) but can be easily muscled in the bumps. Though I bought a pair that were a little longer than my preferred length, they handled as though they were about 5cm smaller. These are a good advanced-intermediate ski that performs best when you disrespect them.
