Technical info:
Hoji is a moderate version of Renegade. The waist is narrower, but otherwise we recognize a lot of things. The long turning radius is down to the consistent rocker. The tail is a bit stiffer than normal, the tip is somewhat softer. The weight ratio is average, the bend of the tip is more pronounced than on the Renegade, thereby making the tip angle steeper.

On snow:
A typical big mountain ski. Not because the skis carry the name of a freeride legend, but because of how they perform. This ski feels stable and precise, and responds well to high speed. At the same time it is playful and easy to maneuver. Hoji is not as good on groomed trails as some of the other skis in this category. 4FRNT Hoji suits those who want a moderately wide big mountain ski with rocker, and is a good choice for touring.
