This ski does it all.
Since we launched our flagship ski in 2013, we have been looking for ways to make it even better. While we still love the Cardinal as it is and it remains at the heart of the Parlor line up, the Cardinal Pro brings some really exciting features designed to bring you anywhere on the mountain with confidence.
At 102 underfoot, this ski threads the needle between all mountain and a mixed snow ski. We designed a medium length, early rise tip on the ski which allows for flotation in the softer snow, but is really designed to move any crud, bumps, or fluff out of the way so you can carve a turn.
We made the ski cambered underfoot so it feels lively on the groomers and gives you snap and agility in mixed snow bumps and trees.
And yes, we gave it metal - two layers of Titanal in this ski give it unmatched stability at high speeds, dampness for the icy days, and extra pop when needed.
Go on, step in to a pair of the Cardinal Pros... let everyone else try to keep up.

Camber describes the bottom profile of the ski and is a significant design factor.
Reverse camber (or "rocker") is the opposite, where the tips and tails do not contact the snow when the ski lays flat. The Cardinal's subtle reverse camber makes the ski more playful and easier to pivot off trail, without sacrificing much edge grip. Choose this option for greater all-mountain versatility.
To help provide the best fit possible Parlor makes each ski in three flexes: soft, medium and stiff. Flex is determined through height/weight and skier style. The right flex allows a skier to access all of the contact points and performance of the ski: so the skier controls the ski and not the other way around. Medium is the default choice and appropriate for most riders.
The laminates are the main structural component of our skis. All of our custom graphic skis come with the option of a frontside or backcountry lay up.
Built with three layers of Vectorply triaxial fiberglass, this lay up prioritizes dampness and stability while still maintaining a low swing weight.
Built with two layers of Vectorply triaxial fiberglass and two layers of carbon fiber skrim, this lay up is lighter in weight for those who like to spend some time going up hill. The carbon also gives the ski a bit of added pop.
