Technical info:
Technically speaking, 4FRNT Vandal is a cross between a park ski and a freeride ski. According to the brand, it is ideal for butters. It has a consistent flex that is easy to handle. Bearing in mind the category it belongs to, it has quite long rocker combined with some taper.

On snow:
The first impression is that it feels like a jibber ski, and this doesn´t change after a couple of days of testing. It is a playful ski with good maneuverability that works well on rails, piste and medium sized jumps. However, if one isn´t perfectly balanced in the landing, the front and back ski fails to follow up on the biggest park jumps. Consequently, Vandal is not an obvious choice for slopestyle riders, but it is a good and versatile ski for most others.
