The Antidote’s playful flex pattern, symmetrical twin shape and extra-tough construction complete the tick-list for any savvy rail and transition shredder.
Moderately stiff underfoot, the Antidote has an ultra-fun sidecut and camber combo that loves carving between hits, regular and switch. If it wasn’t for the smooth, extra-buttery tips the Antidote could easily be mistaken for a more serious ski. A tip-to-tail Carbon Pop Band adds extra ollie pop to the tips and allows presses and butters to be tweaked beyond ridiculous, without the fear of washout.
2.2mm thick Rockwell Steel edges, a tough Extruded 4 base and Amplid’s birch-reinforced Hard Core are the precautions we’ve taken to boost the Antidote’s durability for everyday park abuse.
Last year the testers of ski test website "Le Bon Test" voted the Rockwell one of their favourite all-mountain skis. This year it was the turn of Amplid's playful park destroyer, the Antidote, to...
Newschoolers gear editor Twig took the all-new Antidote for a ride last month, in classic pre-season conditions, on the Stubai Glacier. It's hard for any ski to excel in early season conditions, so...
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.

A poplar wood core with harder birch strategically placed beneath the bindings and along the edges for increased impact resistance.
A narrow band of uni-directional carbon stringers that run through the centreline of a ski or snowboard from tip-to-tail increasing pop and extending flex memory without altering torsional stiffness.
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.
A smooth kick radius and fuller tip outline improves deep snow floatation without adding swing weight.
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.
