THE ALTER EGO Amplid Ski
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.
