Product information

Best Use

Soft snow oriented, but can still rip on hardpack.

Description

The Citadel has been a vision of ours since the inception of Renoun. Wider, lighter, carbon fiber — more HDT™, less chatter. Everything you need to build a super ski unlike any other. After 3 years of R&D - Research & Dreaming, we’ve made it a reality.  We designed the Citadel to be both light and stable, a combination not previously possible. To accomplish this, we doubled the amount of HDT™ embedded in the aspen core. This additional amount of vibration-reducing HDT™ allows the Citadel to clock in at under 1,650g/ski, yet be more stable than a ski with far more weight. It’s the best of both words. At 106mm underfoot, it’s more soft snow oriented and versatile enough to use as an everyday charger. Float in the powder, and grip on the groomers.

Moneyback Guarantee.

Never choose wrong — mount ‘em, ski ‘em and if you’re not totally in love, we’ll buy them back, no questions asked.

How it works >
  • Subtle rocker
    Enough for deep days, yet still maintains grip on hardpack.
  • Full-carbon
    Light, yet with almost 2x the ShockStop™ inside, it’s more stable than a ski with far more heft.
  • Moneyback Guarantee
    If you don’t absolutely love them, send them back for a full refund. . . seriously.
  • Non-Newtonian
    We embed channels of a non-newtonian polymer that literally adapts to snow conditions and ski style. When exposed to higher speeds and vibrations, the polymer hardens actively damping the ski. It sounds too good to be true, right?

HDT™

We embed channels of a non-newtonian polymer called HDT™ into every ski we make. When exposed to vibrations, the polymer hardens actively damping the ski. It literally adapts to snow conditions and ski style. It’s the first of its kind, sounds too good to be true, right?!

Mixed feelings

I tried the skis on slopes and mostly tracked powder so far. In both places they behave actually as 4 stars which is good taking into account they aren't tailored specifically for either. It's what I was after. There is one downside I found and one question I have. Let's start with the latter. Do the skis come waxed? They definitely felt otherwise. They were rather slow. I had them waxed and will try again this weekend to rule this out. Putting aside my expectation in that respect, it should be either mentioned they need waxing or they should be fast. Neither was the case. Now to the problem. The base is a joke. It's way too soft for the area of application of a 100+ ski. It's inevitable that there will be some rocks in the way. This ski takes it really bad. Smallest obstacles resulted in disproportionally big holes. Honestly, I hope I had bad luck in these 3h on snow I had last weekend and hit the few worst rocks on the whole mountain. If this happens on the next occasion then I don't think these skis can be used offpiste. That would rule them out for me which would be a pity. Let's see...

Lightweight Powder and Touring Weapon

After skiing on the Citadel for 100+ days this past season, I have had the opportunity to test this ski in every condition. As expected, the Citadel performs excellent in the soft snow and powder. On the other hand, don't be afraid let these puppies run on the hard-pack- The HDT is no joke. The faster you go, the more stable the ski becomes, the stability almost feels unlimited at high speeds. I also had the opportunity to tour on these skis last season. Coming from the Icelantic Nomad 105s the first thing I noticed was the difference in weight and how much faster and with less energy it took for me to tour. All around and excellent ski and would highly recommend it to anybody looking for an all mountain ski that can ski pretty much anything.
