Technical info:
4FRNT Hoji is a previous test winner and a long standing best seller in Norway. This year’s version has some significant changes. A new carbon fibre string construction makes this freeride ski a lot lighter. It has also got more negative chamber in the waist, which gives a very pronounced point under the foot you are standing on. One metre rocker in the front! The new Hoji has also got considerably more sidecut in the back than in the front.

On snow:
This ski feels a little more shaky compared to previous versions of the same model. That was unfortunate considering the rough conditions we had during our test days in Svarteberg. It doesn´t like chopped snow, as it gets hesitant and you can feel the rocker is working below the foot. It also flutters at high speed on hard snow. In return, it is easy to maneuvre. Hoji has become a ski that clearly functions best in soft, unchopped snow. Quite a lot of the allround qualities are gone.
