The Hoji W can do it all (hello, perfect versatility score!), but its bread and butter is arcing huge turns down steep, pow-filled faces. A full reverse-camber profile aids in flotation and maneuverability, while 4FRNT’s ReflectTech (matching rocker and sidecut radii) ensures you can lay them on edge predictably. Its poplar and paulownia wood core yields a solid combination of weight savings and pop, and VibeVeil, an elastic membrane in the tip, keeps the chatter down on hardpack and variable snow for the smoothest of rides. One tester summed it up nicely stating, “They’re for flowing, sliding, surfing and spraying. Let ’em glide!”
