Since our beginning, the Cease & Desist has been a constant reminder that sometimes you just need to run with it. This ski was designed to be the ultimate, Big Mountain powder ski, and soon earned a name that reminds us every day of why we do what we do. For 2018, we’ve pushed this beast even farther and morphed our Asymmetrical Tip Taper (ATT) design into an all-new Offset Tip Shape (OTS). ATT shortens the effective edge on the outside of the ski in the tip and tail and decreases the surface area that grabs the outer edge of the ski as it’s rolled over in soft snow. By offsetting the ski center toward the inner edge, we are able to further enhance the ski’s asymmetry while nailing the proper surface area and shape to maximize float. Combined with RES, Powder Rocker, Tour Layup, and 100% bamboo core, the Cease & Desist continues to anchor our line for those hunting snow ghosts on the deepest of days. There is no better powder ski in existence, period.
Large, gradual tip rocker for optimal float in deep snow. Flat camber underfoot. Short tail rocker allows the ski to smear and pivot when need.
Reverse Elliptical Sidecut
RES is a large, convex elliptical arc that runs from boot center to tip taper, combined with a long, traditional radius in the tail. The goal is simple: create the best soft snow sidecut and shape available.
Solid platform underfoot, slightly stiffer tail, with a progressive flex into the tips. Similar to our Freeride Flex, but with a rounder platform designed for improved float and maneuverability in softer conditions.
