Waist Width: 112
The Shreditor 112 is virtually identical to the top of the line Shreditor 120, with a narrower waist width designed to excel in powder but still offer versatile performance in everyday conditions in soft-snow locales. It's quicker edge to edge than the 120, with a slightly tighter sidecut radius that favors somewhat shorter turns. But it's still designed to thrive primarily in deep snow and big-mountain settings. The Shreditor line is a collection of twintips ranging in width from an everyday, Eastern-appropriate 92 mm to a powder-specific 120 mm. They're built for enhanced buoyancy and surfiness, with a loose, new-school feel in the snow that promotes creative choices in line and quick speed checks. (As well as switch riding; compare with K2's Pinnacle line of wide-bodies, which are flat-tailed, more traditional and directional.) All have tapered tips, where the widest part of the ski is moved back from the tip, for lighter swing weight and a slashy, quick feel in deep snow. The tail is not only turned up but tapered as well, for quick release at the end of the turn and easy pivotability in powder. All are wood-core, torsion-box constructions. (That is, the core is wrapped in a sheath of reinforcing fiberglass, with fibers aligned to resist twisting). All are sold flat (without binding).
