After almost half a decade in exile, the Infrablack is back. Living up to the Infrablack’s rich heritage and fierce reputation was a big challenge, but Amplid’s team has taken the design to a whole new level.
Its new, state-of-the-art shape is more deep-snow orientated than previous versions; smooth tip rocker and its 126mm waist width aid floatation. Like its predecessors this thrill-seeking missile’s construction, flex and geometry are optimised for poaching the best lines of your life. For big-mountain skiers, stability and control are critical attributes: Amplid’s “Full Carbon Jacket” construction creates a powerful flex and inert behaviour through bumpy run-outs. Its 28m sidecut radius keeps this monster predictable at speeds when other skis feel twitchy, nervous or simply flip-out. HEXO2 construction is a nice touch, stripping weight from the ski tips to keep the Infrablack reactive and manageable in tighter terrain.
Tail stiffness is crucial for sticking big landings and anchoring critical turns when washout might mean disaster. The Infrablack’s Camrock profile combines smooth nose rocker with an almost flat tail. Its camber’s low cavity depth and rocker tips prevent catchiness and really address the disadvantages of conventional camber in powder snow. The tails handle backseat landings and grip hard in windblown conditions.
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.
Spin to win with effortless style. Amplid’s HEXO2 core replaces specific areas of weightier wood at the tips with featherlight recycled paper honeycomb, practically eliminating swing weight,
Amplid’s Full Carbon Jacket is the most expensive fiber laminate in Amplid’s arsenal. Carbon’s tensile strength to weight ratio is unbeatable, it allows the use of thinner, almost weightless laminates to achieve the same flex profile. Its responsive and energized feel is unique.
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.
A premium sintered plastic which readily absorbs wax and will out-run your riding buddies’ bases without breaking a sweat. You better get used to waiting.
