The Hill Bill is designed for skiers that are searching for the most progressive and creative, backcountry freestyle weapon for their arsenal, it blends agile handling with a surfy feel and effortless floatation.
Very smooth, gradual tip rocker guarantees that the entire length of the ski, from tip-to-tail, is actively generating lift in deep snow. This auto-float designs allows you to concentrate on the terrain in front of you and the trick in your head. Limited taper and a more centred mounting position make switch skiing in powder more natural.
Because you never know what‘s beneath a shallow snowpack, Stomp Guard, a thin layer of Titanal running along the edges of the ski, increases the edges‘ resistance to impacts. On harder snow the Hill Bill‘s reactive sidecut, underfoot camber and Basalt Supespension Strips keep the ski well behaved.
Amplid’s Camrock profile blends underfoot camber with rocker tips. A length of camber under the boot provides grip and reverse camber in the tips increases playfulness and deep snow performance. This ski-specific camber manifests itself in various forms in Amplid’s skis; skis intended for deep snow have a smaller camber area and increased rocker to improve floatation and fluidity.
This superlight wood core is the industry standard for lighteweight, durable and versatile performance. We’ve tweaked this core so many times over the years there’s nothing left to improve.
BASALT SUSPESION STRIPS
Running along the topsheet in a V-configuration from the contact points towards the bindings, these narrow bands of Basalt fabric dampen unwanted vibrations, reducing rider fatigue and keeping you edge engaged with the snow for improved control. Get the Rolls Royce feeling!
Amplid uses Triaxial glass in the majority of its skis for greater torsional rigidity, which in layman’s terms means more grip and response.
JEKYLL & HYDE GEOMETRY
Max effective edge and square centimeters for floatation in the minimum board or ski length. Unsinkable, but nimble pow shreds, sawn-off jib decks with huge pop and insane edge-hold or the ultimate all-mountain ski shape recipe.
Ultra wide, low rising tips that exist purely to create lift in powder without sucking-up speed. They add a surfy feel to skis and snowboards.
A thin strip of lightweight Titanium-Aluminium allow sandwiched between the edge and sidewall increases the impact force needed to blow-out an edge by 215%.
SINTERED 7 BASE
Amplid’s ultra-high density sintered base goes like shit-off-a-shovel in all snow conditions. It is extremely hard and therefore more resistant to damage.
“The Hill Bill is a proper backcountry weapon, packing some serious width and a playful shape for a floaty, surfy feel. They are also versatile for a ski of this width and work well in a variety of snow conditions. If you are spending a lot of time playing in the backcountry, this is a great tool for the job.”
