This ski is capable of aggressive carving on groomed surfaces. Very nimble handling considering its burly construction and high-strength materials. Very controlled rebound and edgefeel with plenty of pop and security on-demand. Very high quality and performance. Kevan Beane has targeted the twintip of his lineup to hit the intended purpose very nicely.
Model tested: FR TWIN 174/184
First turns impressions were “easy handling”, “no learning curve”, “super friendly do-it-all ski for everyone. The Rip’nWud Freeride Carve goes from piste to fluff with no transition anxiety….it just goes where you point it and doesn’t flinch as it goes from groomed surfaces to soft, fluffy side trail sections. The more you turn it, it responds and holds. Large radius – no problem. Tighten the turn – no problem. Vibrations on harder surfaces – NON. Navigation in fluffy surfaces – No effort. Great all-around, high-quality, handsome ski for any condition. A great first-choice for a one-quiver ski.

Superb sensations last Sunday, especially in powder (…) I was also amazed by the versatility combined with a super performance in deep powder or even while making small turns on the slopes. Needless to say that the skis are GORGEOUS! Looking forward for the next experience.
Model tested : FRC
I am completely delighted with my FRC skis (…) In all conditions, they surprise me: powder, ice, mixed snow … their stability at high speed on hard snow is incredible!
Model tested: FRC 177
Your skis are wonderful, just wow, wow, wow!

FR Backcountry Twin
The FR is a real toy. A toy that’s fun but also ready for a lot of crazy action. The ski turns very easily and comfortably, and yet it is stable regardless of the speed. It almost seems as if it gets more stable the faster one skies. According to Rip’n Wud manager Kevan Beane, this is related to the wood used for this ski, namely ash wood.
The Backcountry Twin is the perfect ski for those who want to jump a lot, who like skiing in parks but also want to race down a piste from time to time.
more piste than backcountry
solid for skiing on-piste and off-piste
The ski seems solid, there’s barely anything disturbing it, it’s a very smooth-running and rock-solid ski, very well adapted to the piste, full stance, noticeable quality. However, it needs to be driven more actively. For people attaching importance to precision and excellent edge grip. For good and ambitious skiers, dynamic ski with good feedback, great board where everything is just right, outstanding impression, ski with great maneuverability, for playing on-piste or in the park

Powder Big Fat
Reading the name of this ski by Rip’n Wud, one quickly realizes the purpose it has been build for and where it will be used: in the fat powder.
There it feels at home, there it plows through the snow, and there it prepares its driver to lots of fun. And on the piste? What about its performance there? It’s versatile as well.
The Big Fat’s performance is impressive on hard subsoil as well. It can easily be turned. Thanks to its opulent dimensions, it is also great for carving.
Our conclusion: Although it’s flat, it shows great on-piste performance as well. A great ski that in fact has its costs.
nice off-piste ski for experts
top quality, dynamic, sustainable
This off-piste ski is a very rigid and full ski on the piste as well; it has a perfect stance and an awesome finish
Lengths: 183, 191 cm
Waist: 143–111–131 mm
Radius: 24 m (183)
The name is program. The FR Carve is a first-class on-piste ski. It leaves nothing to wish for on the piste. It drives extremely precisely, has perfect edge grip and puts a smile on the face of its driver even after a boringly ordinary drive on a red piste. However, the surprising feature of the FR Carve is that it knows how to convince off-piste as well. Its stability is great in the powder and it rocks off-piste as well.
Our conclusion: With the FR Carve, one doesn’t have to worry about which ski to strap on if it’s not yet clear what the day will bring. You can rock the piste until the edges glow. And if you still want to go off-piste, this won’t be any problem either.
easy-to-turn and fun ski with great dynamics
A great all-rounder with noticeable race genes. This ski surely needs an active driver, but gives a lot of feedback in return. The surprise: it drives well on-piste, but its off-piste performance is great as well. Very delicate in tracked snow and easy to drive and turn in the powder. Great ski for everything. Drives securely and has full stance. Immediate sense of well-being. Reliable, precise, harmonious, smooth, probably less suitable for beginners, since a little work is required. However, everybody else will have fun, for each driver and each terrain.
