You can't spell his name, but you know who Hoji is and what he's all about, so you probably already know what to expect from his 4FRNT pro model ski: a ripping, pow loving maniac that's not opposed to some serious skintrack time. Hoji's human powered ethos is pretty well known, so he designed his namesake with a poplar and beech Hy Lite core, which keeps weight manageable to save your hip flexors and your energy when you're punching up 4,000 feet to the top of an unnamed peak in interior BC. Both woods are strong and snappy, too, so you can really put the Hoji through its high speed paces without feeling unstable or chattery. Fiberglass laminates give the boards even more stability and edge control, and 4FRNT's Vibe Veil technology uses a vibration dampening layer to take the squirreliness out of these fully rockered monsters. At 112mm at the waist, the Hoji is still nimble enough to slarve turns through the trees, but with Reflect Tech technology, the rocker radius and sidecut match, allowing the ski to edge smoothly and predictably. With a 30m turn radius, the Hoji lives for big lines skied fast. Reverse camber and tapered extremities take the drawbacks of rocker out of the equation by eliminating tip and tail hook when you're in powder and provideing a platform for a powder skiing sensation unmatched by any other ski on the market. The semi cap construction wraps the topsheet around the sidewall, providing increased durability and longevity to the ski. So when you're ready, step into the Hoji and charge like you never have before, whether you're ripping Hollywood lines or putting in first descents far away from civilization.
