This ski is the ultimate confidence builder, designed for attacking the everything from the blues to the trees, its slight early rise tip and traditional camber underfoot make turn initiation a breeze, and leads to an impressive hold on ice. We combined narrow strips of titinal for stability with a light weight triax glass, the ski is nimble but very stable on hard snow and ice.
This is also the first ski that we are marketing specifically with women in mind, this ski threads the needle between easy turning and high speed stability.

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.
