All Klint models feature what the brand calls "Reflection Applied Concept," which means that each model's performance characteristics�edge contact, flex, running surface, sidecut, etc.�are scaled to each available length of that model. Klint claims that this helps adapt those characteristics to each skier's size, weight, and ability. Klint's Prime is a directional twin tip (as opposed to symmetrical twin tip), which indicates that it is intended as an all-mountain-capable freestyle/park ski for skiers who don't often ski backwards (an application for which a symmetrical design is better suited). It's rockered in the tip and tail and cambered in its middle two thirds, a design intended to facilitate agility and easy turn initiation. At 96mm in the waist, it suitable for on- and off-piste and backcountry use.
