VibeStop™

We embed channels of a non-Newtonian polymer called VibeStop™ into every ski we make. When exposed to vibrations at speed, the polymer instantly hardens and actively damps the ski. By instantly adapting to ski conditions and your skiing style, VibeStop™ lets you charge harder without the chatter.

It’s not rocket science. It’s ski science.

Minimized Chatter

VibeStop™ decreases chatter & vibrations by over 300%.

More grip

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

Increased Confidence

More stability for greater confidence no matter what terrain you're on.

A breakthrough technology
you’ll only find in a Renoun.

State-of-the-art materials + intentional design = a skiing experience unlike any other.

Outstanding

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.

Citadels FTW

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!

Citadel 106

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!

Absolutely Incredible!!!

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).

Great ski

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,

Serious skis for serious skiers

I used these skis for the second time today at Hunter Mountain. I discovered that they won't tolerate laziness, but aggressive turning handled typical Eastern hardpack and the often annoying sudden change of conditions from icy to slush. I'm glad I got the longer size. I was very stable in difficult conditions.

Citadel The King

Finally got my first day on the Citadel 106. Day at Whiteface Mt in NY. Definitely not ideal conditions for the skis main purpose but all the better to prove the design and technology is unlike any other ski I’ve used. Conditions were fast and as always typical of east coast snow, icy and hard. The skis performed amazingly. Held edge bombing down the trails and was incredible to feel the ski stiffen up as you gained speed. Beyond impressed. Can’t wait to try them in the conditions they were actually designed for. And seriously considering adding to my quiver with a more east coast friendly pair from the Renoun lineup. For reference I bought the Citadel to primarily use as a side and backcountry setup as they are mounted with Salomon shift bindings for short tours.

Do-it-all

Not only are these skis incredibly light and playful, they also hold an edge in bad conditions and will float like powder skis in deep snow. Frankly it’s hard for me to imagine skiing on a different pair of skis ever again.

Quiver Killer

I recently added the Citadel 106 to my collection as a wider ski for those deeper days. However, the Citadel skis so well that I am now selling my other (85mm) skis and rocking the Citadels 7 days a week!

Took the Place of Four Pair of SkisQ

I’m a ski patroller in Utah. I purchased a pair of Citadel 106s toward the end of the 20-21 ski season and have had four days of skiing on them. Those days consisted of icy, packed powder, crud and corn conditions. I was able to compare my 178cm Citadel 106s against my Salomon QST 113s and 106s, and my Moment Deathwish Tours. Based on my four days I’m ready to get rid of my Salomons and Moment skis. The Citadels felt comfortable from the start. They ran true on the groomers, cut through the crud and cruised over the packed powder. They got on edger easily so that I may also find my Rossignol Experience 84s gathering dust in seasons to come. My Citadel tour set up using Marker Kingpins weigh in at 2337 grams a piece, whereas my other three tour setups range from 2650 - 3590 grams, making the skin far easier than I’m used to. The Citadel 106s may become my one ski quiver.

Game Changers

I am very impressed with the Renoun Citadel 106. I am 5’10” and 170 pounds and a Telemark skier. I purchased the ski at 191 cm. I find the ski to be quick, snappy, damp and snappy. It is playful and carves exceptionally well. It has a large sweet spot. It is quite strange how they do everything so well. A great one ski quiver for someone who does not spend a lot of time on the groomers, but when you do they let you rip great carved turns. I mounted the boot center about a half inch back of ski recommendations. I would highly recommend this ski to any advanced to expert skier or someone who wants to ski at that level. Great new technology!! Thanks for making hot skis. Bill Hernon

Love these so much!

Skiing the PAC Northwest. These skis do it all, and in the same run. Powder, junk, ice. Also use them for AT and they are super light! How can they power through the crud? Must be that non Newtonian magic. I swear I can feel them change in real time as the conditions do.

Awesome Citadel!!!

After having been a Praxis Ski addict for 15 years, I was skeptical buying a different brand, but the Citadel is now my daily driver in Solitude, UT. I plan on buying 88’s next season to add to my quiver. So glad that I read the Powder magazine review!

Best Use

Powder & Backcountry — Floats steady, carves hard, tours light. A superski.

Description

We designed the Citadel to do what was once thought to be impossible: feel light but ski with stability. To achieve this, we doubled the amount of VibeStop™ embedded in the Citadel’s aspen core and swapped to a full-carbon construction. This additional vibration-reducing material allows the Citadel to weigh just under 1,650 grams per ski, while remaining 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. Float in the powder, grip on the groomers – all in one pair of Citadels.

Awards

“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.”
