Technical info:
Here is the woman´s version of Hoji. The measures are very similar to the original, only a little shorter. And this one has a little more rocker in the waist. It is the heaviest ski in the test, but also one of the longest. The flex curve is of medium stiffness. The sidecut is slightly more sudden in the front ski before it narrows further back

On snow:
4FRNT´s Hoji has been a success in recent years and this years woman’s version is a hit as well. Admittedly, it is not a top performer on groomed slopes, but as an allround freeride ski, 4FRNT has done most things right. You get float, playfulness, turnability and stability at speed all wrapped in a convincing package.
