I just bought a pair of 182 Salomon Foils and i am going to put some s912 ti bindings on them, i ride pretty evenly between park, groomers, and backcountry, if i center mount the skis will they still ride pow and backcountry well? any advice from people that have Foils or have skied them?
I have them and rode the all last year at core center and loved it. It's perfect for all mountain and park (less than 2 cm from center), and is decent in pow, but you still need to lean forward a bit. I'd def mount them there, mounting them center messes with the sidecut and all mountain performance and you really don't gain much from mounting center.
I figured hijaking an old thread is better than making a new one, anyways. 174's or 182's? I am about six one, i will be skiing park big mt. (pow) and groomers when i have to, so basically the whole mt. I live in Southern Oregon my mt. has like 1,200 vertical and we don't a get a ton of snow. I would probably be mounting them a few cm back from center. What do you guys think? Thanks, Jake.
