For skiing loaded pillows in Hokaido or launching from hand-sculpted features in the backcountry of Tignes, Julien Lange always opts for one ski, the Multiplayer. Amplid has perfectly blended the worlds of freeriding and freestyle into one ski with true kill-it-all DNA.
The Multiplayer has a directional, setback camrock which sets down big landings with ease, and its generous, early rise nose and Floatation Tips, which pack a lot of surface area, generate plenty of lift for skiing in deep snow. Basalt Suspension Strips keep tip flap in check, but the tips are intentionally softer than those of a freeride specific ski to encourage creative butters and more forgiving landings in deep snow when a stiffer tip might dive.
On harder snow the Multiplayer’s comparatively tight sidecut transforms this mid-fat backcountry specialist into a credible carver.
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.

This superlight wood core is the industry standard for lighteweight, durable and versatile performance. We’ve tweaked this core so many times over the years there’s nothing left to improve.
Running along the topsheet in a V-configuration from the contact points towards the bindings, these narrow bands of Basalt fabric dampen unwanted vibrations, reducing rider fatigue and keeping you edge engaged with the snow for improved control. Get the Rolls Royce feeling!
Amplid uses Triaxial glass in the majority of its skis for greater torsional rigidity, which in layman’s terms means more grip and response.
Max effective edge and square centimeters for floatation in the minimum board or ski length. Unsinkable, but nimble pow shreds, sawn-off jib decks with huge pop and insane edge-hold or the ultimate all-mountain ski shape recipe.
Ultra wide, low rising tips that exist purely to create lift in powder without sucking-up speed. They add a surfy feel to skis and snowboards.
Amplid’s ultra-high density sintered base goes like shit-off-a-shovel in all snow conditions. It is extremely hard and therefore more resistant to damage.
