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 Fringe was a medalist in Skiing's 2011 test of new and small brands (we did not test it in 2012), lauded for its energy and carving prowess on firm snow. In the 182mm length, it sports a mid-fat waist width of 90mm, enabling it to handle shallow powder and off-groomer forays with great agility. It features a Birch core and sandwich construction and is designed for expert all-mountain skiers who want a traditional-feeling, camberless ski.
