Technical info:
This is the middle option of Kye Petersen´s three signature models. It has a little more sidecut than Eric Hjorleifsson´s models, a traditional high camber under the feet and the taper is as long as the rocker. The rocker is pronounced in the back ski, but shorter than Hoji. Soft tail and a stiffer tip. There is little width difference between tip and tail. Heavy fibreglass construction with high specific weight.

On snow:
This ski feels heavy and solid. Because of the camber it might also feel a little longer than Hoji. It is a ski built for high speed and the piste rather than play. But not all the test riders were comfortable with the high camber under the foot - it wasn´t as easy to skid with as Hoji. All in all we have to say that Kye still has some way to go compared to Hjorleifsson’s ski.
