Built the same directional freeride profile as the Wrenegade 108 Ti, the non-metal version carves like a narrower ski than it is. Why does that matter? Well, the people who like slightly wider skis for their all-mountain powder hunting will inevitably find themselves on groomers and hardpack. Its just how the world works. When that happens to you on the Wrenegade 108, you are in for a treat. Because while these skis are built to float powder and fly through trees and chutes, they are also intended to crush harder snow. The directional profile and excellent stability breeds confidence and edge hold without adding the extra bulk that comes with metal. The Wrenegade 108 is a bit toned back from its metal counterpart, but it still drives hard and fast while rewarding the skier with a little more forgiveness. Pull the trigger if you are a freeride oriented skier who wants a bit more directional ski than you have had in the past but want to stay away from metal.
