Amplid is very proud to offer a next level park ski with sandwich construction, manufactured in the European Alps, with a very affordable price tag. Other than its wallet-saving price tag, nothing about the Provoke is budget. Its environmentally conscious WDT Core is not only greener, but tougher than a conventional ski core. Heavy landings and rail impacts get soaked-up with ease. Its Extruded 4 Base needs little maintenance, yet remains consistently fast.
The Provoke isn’t overly soft, but with camber underfoot and a carefully measured dose of rocker in the tips it finds just the right balance between a forgiving and buttery flex for jibs and rails, and a solid and stable feel for jumps. Because of its true twin shape its an awesome ski for getting to grips with switch tricks.
Amplid’s Camrock profile blends underfoot camber with rocker tips. A length of camber under the boot provides grip and reverse camber in the tips increases playfulness and deep snow performance. This ski-specific camber manifests itself in various forms in Amplid’s skis; skis intended for deep snow have a smaller camber area and increased rocker to improve floatation and fluidity.

Snappy and damp weren’t two ride characteristics that went together before WDT. This isotropic wood composite core brushes aside heavy impact and requires 50% less energy to manufacture.
Amplid uses Triaxial glass in the majority of its skis for greater torsional rigidity, which in layman’s terms means more grip and response.
Extra short tips with a tight kick radius permit the maximum possible effective edge for extra grip on hard snow conditions. Not for powder.
If we didn’t tell you, you’d think this base was sintered. Amplid’s mind-boggling extruded base material offers next level glide properties and rarely needs waxing.
