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. Nearly a centimeter narrower than its more girthsome brother, the Prime, the Prime Lite is a less-versatile, more park/pipe-specific ski. It's directional (not symmetrical) and thus better suited for skiers who want to the comfort and predictability of a more traditional feeling ski in the park setting. 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.
