Ever since Shane McConkey predicted the future of freestyle would involve using the entire mountain as a terrain park, ski manufacturers have been obsessed with the idea of the perfect all-mountain freestyle ski. 4FRNT’s newest entry, the Switch, drives us one step closer to that ideal. With a near-flawless twin tip shape and progressive mount point, carving fakie is easier than ever. A maple-aspen core paired with carbon stringers gives the Switch ample pop for boosting side hits and park jumps, and prevent it from chattering when you’re back on the ground. Our testers felt the Switch was a total workhorse and were particularly impressed with its stability underfoot given the buttery nature of its tips and tails. If you grab ‘em, be sure to do a McConkey turn for us.

FREESKIER tester thoughts:

“This baddie is a versatile, stable, lightweight jib ski that is ready to dominate. It has a softer fl ex but maintains stability through mixed terrain, from big drops to small nuggets.”

“Hell yeah, this is my kind of ski! Easy to shifty and throw around. Holds a clean edge through turns. Could be a daily driver in the park but you will have a blast ripping the mountain T-to-B.”
