Cast in the same shape as the Ego Trip Evolution, the Alter Ego sacrifices its lookalike’s weight advantage for raw on-edge performance. Featured in the Alter Ego is an abundance of materials and technologies which together create the best resort ski that Amplid has ever built.
Its 12m radius (at 175cm) pulls the ski onto an edge and then slingshots it into the next carve. This centrifugal feel is intensified by Amplid’s Titanal Centriband Technology, a strip of Titanium alloy which runs along the whole length of the ski, above and below the core. Not only does Titanal supercharge the ski’s flex and magnify the edge bite, it is also incredibly efficient at dampening vibrations caused by tracked conditions and refrozen corduroy. With added Basalt Suspension Strips the Alter Ego’s edge is guaranteed to be always engaged and gripping hard.
Its 95mm waist is wider than most of its contemporaries, but the Alter Ego really benefits from a performance boost in un-pisted snow. Cruise Camber not only feels wired and responsive like POP Camber, it’s pretty handy in powder too.
The flat tails make loading and unloading these animals at the gondola station that little bit more sophisticated.
A half-fat camber for all-mountain dominance. Cruise Camber’s toned-down dimensions deliver a precise and lively feel much like Pop Camber, but with much improved deep snow performance and a more “broken-in” feel out of the shrink-wrap. In Amplid’s directional snowboards and skis a touch of early rise is added to Cruise Camber to improve buoyancy even further.
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.
A countersunk band of Titanal metal, above and below the core, reduces chatter at high speed, increases torsional stiffness for better grip and intensifies pop.
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.
A smooth kick radius and fuller tip outline improves deep snow floatation without adding swing weight.
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.
