More responsive, more robust, the Skull returns with its ultra-light Smart Woodcore core, Powerflex construction and carbon reinforcements from nose to tail. It gives it a killer pop wherever it goes. Its double flex, in spatula and between bindings, allows it to be flawless on edge passages. While we're on the subject, you should know that they're made of high quality steel, our Mellow Easy Grip, so you can carve with confidence. In any case, the Skull wouldn't stand for being offered an alloy at a discount, it would take it as a lack of respect. We preferred not to take the risk.
