Manufacturer's Description

After almost half a decade in exile, the Infrablack is back. Living up to the Infrablack’€™s rich heritage and fierce reputation was a big challenge, but Amplid’s team has taken the design to a whole new level. Its new, state-of-the-art shape is more deep-snow orientated than previous versions, smooth tip rocker and its 126mm waist width aid floatation. Like its predecessors this thrill-seeking missile’€™s construction, flex and geometry are optimised for poaching the best lines of your life. For big-mountain skiers, stability and control are critical attributes: Amplid’€™s €œ‘Full Carbon Jacket’€ construction creates a powerful flex and inert behaviour through bumpy run-outs. Its 28m sidecut radius keeps this monster predictable at speeds when other skis feel twitchy, nervous or simply flip-out. HEXO2 construction is a nice touch, stripping weight from the ski tips to keep the Infrablack reactive and manageable in tighter terrain. Tail stiffness is crucial for sticking big landings and anchoring critical turns when washout might mean disaster. The Infrablack’s Camrock profile combines smooth nose rocker with an almost flat tail. Its camber’s low cavity depth and rocker tips prevent catchiness and really address the disadvantages of conventional camber in powder snow. The tails handle backseat landings and grip hard in windblown conditions.
