What an amazing ski. This is your one ski for all terrains. So light and easy to move around and solid as can be wherever you are on the mountain. They really are that good. Take their word for it with their money-back guarantee. I have the 98, and I was extremely impressed with that ski, but this just amplifies the enjoyment.
Easy to ski, ski longer with less fatigue, great looking ski, and an attention getter!
Absolutely love them!!!!
Really smitten, a far more versatile ski than even the Renoun folks let on!! Broke em in last week at Snowbird and Alta (record snow levels) I expected them to be good in powder and they certainly are that; didn't face much crud or crunchy stuff (I was seeking it out) but when I did, they plowed through with aplomb like Panzers pointed towards Poland. My biggest surprise is just how playful they are!!! They turn on a dime but, as the patented magic goo clearly provides, hold w/ stability at speed that a ski that playful just shouldn’t be able to do. Edge to edge transitions really caught me by surprise as well, especially @ 106 under foot - killer. Lightness helps there I suppose and the Citadels certainly are that; whether the exact geometries contribute or it’s just the sum of the choices made (likely the case), I am smitten by the ski’s versatility. Tails hold torsionally when I snap ‘em, almost like a GS ski. Wow!!! In short, a beautifully designed ski that demonstrates the boasted technology is the real deal, unambiguously. I had high expectations; the Citadels exceeded them in just about every way imaginable. The future is indeed here!

Ultimate Ski for Versatility
After just one day skiing on the Citadel, I feel super comfortable with the ski and its ability to perform in a variety of conditions. It felt good in hard pack, light powder, groomers, moguls, and even in the air. I'm a freestyle oriented skier and when looking for a new pair of hybrid-downhill touring skis, the super light, yet incredibly stable, Citadel was the perfect choice. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a ski that is built to conquer just about anything you throw at it
Skiing is Believing
As a mechanical engineer, I was initially drawn to the idea of having a ski that could have a variable stiffness pattern. The idea that I could have a nimble, soft ski for those tree runs and a stiff, chargey ski for ripping groomers sounded too good to be true, but I took a chance and ordered some anyways. I have to say, after skiing them for a season, I am completely sold. This ski does everything they claim it to do and more. I can go from skiing in the trees, making tight, sharp, playful turns then decide I want to go rip the rest of the run on a groomer and just simply exits the trees and lay into the ski. The responsiveness is unmatched and I can't imagine skiing anything else.
Citadels work great
The Citadels are as advertised: light weight and very good downhill performance. I use them in the backcountry but my friend uses them in the steep bumps inbounds. I would definitely get again.
These skis are ludicrous, in all the right ways. The stability when being aggressive is real. I'm fairly sure VibeStop is made at Hogwarts; total magic. I've been skiing about 8 years, probably a lot less than a bunch of other reviewers here, but that said I've NEVER clicked into a new pair of skis and felt at one with them from the very first turn... until now. Usually it takes me a few full days, at least. My trust level in these skis took me completely by surprise, and I love it. Like some reviewers have said (and honestly I didn't 100% believe), although these are marketed as pow skis they *easily* pass for all-mountain. They are CRAZY GOOD on everything. Powder? Like a warm knife through butter. Groomers, hella fun! Crud that feels like wet concrete? Not so cruddy. Icy moguls? Yeah they **** no matter what your ski, but the Citadels manage it! You can buy these knowing you'll still boss the hill most days. Thinking about some Citadels? BUY THEM. Renoun's awesome money back guarantee has you covered (although you very likely won't need it).
I wasn't quite sure about going with a wider ski, and how they would handle everything else besides powder. But WOW! Skiing in Idaho can be variable, and this year was no exception. But was available was no match for there skis. Soft when needed, quick, grippy, stable at speed. I've been in the ski industry for the last 35 years, and have heard all the hype around every gadget and build type. But believe this, Renoun has found it. They deliver on what they say, and my whole family will be riding them next season. I'm 5'10" 165, and 55. Haven't found a place yet where I would want another ski.
These skis are epic. I purchased them on a whim, and so glad I did. The Citadels are stable, responsive, and simply put, they’re hella fun. Seriously, these skis charge. They crush the whole mountain, even in the cruddiest of crud. I had no idea how good these beasty planks would be, and now I almost feel bad for my other skis. Almost! I can't wait for next season already. Also, Cyrus is a legend for hooking us up so quickly and organizing everything. Thanks, Cyrus!
These skis will get skied next season since I broke my femur at the end of December. Even thou a long way away, I am anxious to ski this new ski with the technology that is used in the ski!
I use these for my day-to-day. Great performance with limited chatter in the chop. they hold up excellent in all conditions and light and playful v. other 106 underfoots I have had. Their customer service is great as well as how they back their product.
Ok. You guys are ridiculous. My neighbor highly recommended your skis and I was interested in new ones, so based upon his recommendation and your guarantee, I went “all in” on your skis even though the technology was very difficult to believe. I bought the 106s first since I’m used to skiing all the time on powder skis. Loved them immediately even in ******, for Jackson Hole, ski conditions. My neighbor then also convinced me to get the 98s so I did. But since my wife was watching me spend money on skiing (I was also buying new boots and liners) I decided to get her the womens 98s….and new boots….and new liners. Today we both skied on our 98s for the first time. The snow in JH was better than the last 2-3 weeks due to a few inches of snow, so less hard and icy. All we can say is WOW!! I’m 68, been an athlete my whole life, and felt like I was 30 years old. My wife is 66, not a life long athlete, but in good shape. She was a completely different (better) skier today and was skiing faster than me several times. I have been concerned that there will be a day when she stops skiing when I still have many years left. That day will come, but your skis will give her many more years skiing with me, putting off the inevitable. Thank you so much!! Now I’m waiting for some good powder to really rip on the 106s. The Renoun technology is for real! Unbelievable!!
Best ski around - this is the real deal
This is one of the best skis I've ever been on, bar none. I live in Utah and ski 100+ days a year. I've always been skeptical of trying shorter carbon skis for fear of sacrificing stability at speed. The Citadel allayed my worries within a couple of turns. These skis are lightweight, stable, powerful at all speeds, easy to turn, and most of all, a *ton of fun*. VibeStop is the real deal, and Renoun's moneyback guarantee makes trying these boards a no-brainer. You won't regret it!
Best skis I've ever owned
Got the Citadels last season and I am loving them. You can float across powder with these and still cut through the chop without getting tossed around. They are very responsive and you can feel the difference when they stiffen up on the crud. I saw immediate improvement in my ability and confidence after switching to the Citadels. My only critique is that the matte finish on the top scratches easily, unlike with a semi-gloss finish you find on most skis. So you will end up with some noticeable scrapes in the design through regular use (2021 version - maybe they've changed this in newer editions).
I bought a pair of your Citadel 106 last year. I have been a Volkl skier for many years. They were the one brand I could not outski. Your money back guarantee gave me a chance to try your brand at no risk. I have skied your skis in all conditions. From wind scoured glacial ice, Northwest crud, powder and spring corn. The Renoun ski has never blinked at what I have asked of it. Thank You for the great product,

We designed the Citadel to achieve the impossible: a lightweight ski with stability. To achieve this, we doubled the VibeStop™ embedded in the Citadel’s aspen core and swapped to a full-carbon construction. This additional vibration-reducing VibeStop™ allows the Citadel to weigh under 1,650 grams per ski, while being more stable than heavier competitors. Simply put, it’s the best of both worlds. At 106mm underfoot, it’s soft-snow oriented, yet versatile enough to use as an everyday charger.
Floats steady, carves hard, tours light. A superski.
“Renoun is a genuine pioneer in featherweight ski design. A full-carbon ski, the Citadel 106 stacks up against the most weight-conscious backcountry sticks, but doesn’t suffer from the same chattery stiffness as the others in that class. It skis very much like a precision metal resort cruiser, especially as you open it up. The ski relies on a proprietary and top-secret aerospace polymer that the ice-mad Vermonter scientists call VibeStop™. The faster you ski, the more pressure you apply—or the choppier the terrain—the damper and more powerful the ski gets.”
