The Protest continues to be one of our most popular models. It is a true hybrid powder ski, with some design traits borrowed from the Powderboards, and a little added sidecut and camber that make it easier to ski on hard snow. Its five dimension sidecut and recurve molding was a collaborative design, incorporating ideas that had been evolving in the Praxis factory with feedback from team rider Drew Tabke. The goal was to create a powder ski that still slarved and pivoted like the Powderboards in the deepest snow, yet could still rail carves on the groomers on the way down to the lift.
The Standard Edition Protest is offered in a #3 flex.
We've previously offered the Protest with an ultra light core and we strongly reccommend the custom UL Protest as a backcountry option because there are deep powder days in the backcountry too!
