2009 4FRNT Skis EHP

Posted

Pros: Powder and crud slayer, great in tight spots.

Cons: graphics

All I can say is WOW! The EHP rips the powder and crud like a race ski rips hard pack. I have the 179s and am stoked on the ability to make quick turns in the trees and tight spots in heavy snow. I spend more time than ever before looking for stashes of freshies and hiking to the soft stuff. I mounted on the factory boot center line and construction is top shelf. If I could change one thing it would be the graphics.
Thanks Eric, great design.
2009 4FRNT Skis EHP
Description:

The 4FRNT EHP is back, and it s been training all summer for this year s deep-powder huckstompathon. All three sizes of Eric Hjorliefson s 08/09 EHP Pro Model series are now cast on the popular zero-camber design of last year s 186cm version, with 4FRNT s new HI-LITEblock wood core and damp Q-45weave glass layup. Thanks to an extremely early rise in the tip and tail, the EHP looks like a slightly flattened full-reverse-camber ski and it floats and smears like one in powder but the flat, traditional sidecut underfoot provides much better hold and stability when you pop out onto the catwalk, open up the throttle in crud, or hit a patch of wind buff. The GS-length turn radius means the EHP is most comfortable ripping big, fast turns like the kind Eric prefers, but we found the shorter lengths reasonably maneuverable, at least out here in the West.
