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.
