The MoMA in New York would most likely be interested in those skis as a piece of art with its hand drawn designs, but we rather take them out to the snow and create our own art. Design is one aspect. Equally important is what you can do with those skis out there. RECKONER is our twin shaped powder baby. A specifically Reckoner adjusted Carbon Spectral Braid construction allows you to playfully stand each pillow fight.
From the pow to the park and everywhere in between, the Reckoner 102 delivers thanks to its heavy freestyle influence. Featuring the same tech as its bigger brothers but with a more nimble waist width, this playful twin-tip is at home whipping cork threes off cat tracks, pivoting through tight east coast trees, or hunting for side hits on the groomers. Wherever you decide to take it, the Reckoner 102 has got your back.

The VIPEC EVO 12 110 MM from Fritschi is a touring ski binding that is back this year with a vengeance. Its ease of use and safety have been greatly improved to allow freeriders to focus on the fun.
The changes are in the toe and heel area. Thanks to thefixed stop and a visual indication, the toe of the shoe finds its optimal fitting position naturally. A light touch is all it takes for the system to close thanks to theprecise engagement of the pin levers in the inserts. The movement is similar to that of an alpine ski binding.
The rigid, non-rotating heel piece increases precision and maneuverability. Unlike other insert bindings, the flow of forces generated during turns is not interrupted. The heel piece always maintains its lateral stability.
From a safety point of view, the risks are minimized in the event of a forward fall since the binding allows for immediate release of the shoe in the event of a frontal release.
On the toeboard, the two inserts are attached to a carriage that passes through the binding. The carriage can slide sideways on either side of the binding, but is retained by a spring. This gives a lateral release elasticity of 13mm before the release of the shoe by opening the pins to the DIN value regulated on the stop.
This binding is equipped with 2 mounting wedges and comes in this version with a ski stop of 110 mm wide.
