Price Range: $390 blank with fin to $720 with double Animals
Lengths: 65”, 67”, 69”
Notable Features: The ASX is ½” narrower than the Comp/Freeride slaloms and ½” wider than a CDX/Phantom of the same length. The extra ½” in width creates more support for the skier and less drag as well for a non-tiring ride. The ½” decrease in width from the Comp/Freerides helps fashion hard slalom turns without the need to reduce boat speed. For 2002, the ASX has extra carbon added to the tail section to give it even better acceleration while retaining the sweet spot that helps make it easy and fun to ride. HO team skier Chris Sullivan trains on the ASX, which has a full sheet of carbon on the bottom, and has run well into 41 off at the maximum 36 mph.
Best Suited For: The intermediate to advanced skier who wants more performance than the wide shaped skis will allow.
