Big-Mountain skiing requires absolute commitment. The slightest hint of indecision is the moment a dream line becomes rag-dolling nightmare. The White Noise was created to maximise your self-belief and crush big lines.
Its race-ski inspired layup, with Titanal bands above and below the core, is the basis of a construction designed for smooth behaviour in rough terrain, and dependable grip on hard snow. New AntiphaseTM damping technology sucks up destabilizing vibrations and chatter with remarkable efficiency.
Contrasting to Amplid’s more playful backcountry skis, the White Noise has an almost-conventional freeride ski shape with a 22m sidecut (@189cm) and more taper and setback for control at speed. But it’s not “all work and no play”, the mini swallow tail adds a lick of character for more surfy lines.
Last spring Freeskiers.net took the opportunity to put Amplid's new, hard-charging, freeride ski, the White Noise, through its paces at Kaunertal Glacier. You'll have to follow the link to find-out...
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.
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.
A smooth kick radius and fuller tip outline improves deep snow floatation without adding swing weight.
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.
An advanced composite damping technology, developed in house at Amplid, which reduces unwanted vibrations for a smoother more controlled ride.
Blending different radii in the sidecut allows Amplid’s engineers to fine-tune a ski’s behaviour at different stages of a turn. Exciting and predictable, these sidecuts love velocity!
