Soft snow oriented, but can still rip on hardpack.
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.

How it works >
More power and confidence without the added weight.
With rocker in the tip and tail, the more you tip the ski on edge the more it engages into a turn. Rocker-camber-rocker profile provides float on pow days, and performance on hardpack when you need it.
Sintered 4001 race base with an optimal balance of speed and durability.
Soaks up impending chatter & vibrations to make for a smooth, powerful ride.

Less chatter means better grip for more control — let it rip.

Super punchy, low swing weight
This flex is absolutely sweet, I can butter them just fine and they're super punchy. They have such a low swing weight anyway, very easy to spin and super fun to charge bump fields on as they pivot on a dime, so they don't feel too rigid at all. I've been trying to relate them back to other skis I've demo'd in the past year... they have the punchiness of the Mantra M5 mixed with the charging swerve of the Rustler 10 and the playfulness of the Candide range, and they have it all in a ski that weighs a fraction of nothing. Next level business indeed. My biggest fear before getting on them was that they'd lose feel due to their lightness in the same way as Fischer's Ranger series did for me... nope, no worries there at all. I still can't quite figure them out in the air, but thats just cos they're light and not due to a lack of feel or feedback. My problem, not theirs.
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.

If you don't absolutely love them, remove your bindings and send them back for a full refund.
We're serious about this guarantee. Within 6 months of delivery, if you don't absolutely love your skis after a handful of days skiing them, we will buy them back.
So, if you buy the skis today, but your first days of skiing aren't for almost 6 months, then yes, you can return them.
Due to current world-wide circumstances of COVID-19, we are extending the 'trial period' to December 24th, 2020 — so you can actually ski them once resorts open in the Fall.
What do we do with returned skis? Give them to our athletes!
