Gaucho Skis - 2016
Whether you’re graduating from rentals to your own set up or maching groomers on the East Coast you’ll love the Gaucho. The Titanal layers enable a forgiving flex while maintaining torsional stiffness while on edge. In short it doesn’t matter if you’re a Joey or a Bode, you’ll love the Gaucho. 4Front beefed this ski up with a 10% stiffer flex and still managed a lighter construction.
- Construction : Semi-Cap
- Sidewalls : ABS
- Camber Profile : Tapered Rocker
- Core Laminate : Metal Mega-Block
- Core Material : Ash & Beech
- Base : Sintered
- On the Snow Feel: With a damp wood core, and traditional camber underfoot, the 4FRNT Gaucho feels stable when on the groomers and hard pack snow.
- Powder: The 4FRNT Gaucho doesn’t have the float of a dedicated powder ski, but it still offers a good amount of maneuverability and playfulness in the deeper snow.
- Turn Initiation and Carving: The 4FRNT Gaucho is an exceptionally responsive ski. The tapered tip and tail work with the rocker profile and side-cut to engage the edge as soon as you lean the ski over.
- Speed: If going fast is your thing, the 4FRNT Gaucho won’t disappoint. It’s built with a beefy ash and beech core that offers good dampening properties on its own.
- Uneven Terrain: The 4FRNT Gaucho has a beefy construction with a forgiving flex. Combine that with a good amount of tip and tail rocker, and you have a ski that can handle the variable conditions really well.
- Flex: The 4FRNT Gaucho has a pretty beefy construction with a dense wood core laminated with fiberglass and titanal, but it still has a surprisingly forgiving flex.
