I believe the system is for changing snow conditions, while you are right, most people who will be buying the ski will know how to ski, and will be able to ski anything on anything, in addition to being able to rip a ski such as this. Though I think it is the novelty of the technology, the ability to change the performance of the ski that is neat.
What I noticed, and think, from my test, is that the softer setting is more for crud type conditions, when extra flex will allow for a smoother ride over a bunch of chopped up snow, and allow for more forgivness, while if you have a run of perfect solid groomers, the stiff setting is def. what you want.
In response to other previous posts, this ski is not for a park rat. Obviously it is not a twin tip, and not for skiing backwards, though I did ski it switch, and contrary to popular belief, you can ski switch on any ski, without too much problems. I have never cought a tail skiing backwards on directional skis (Obviously this does not apply towards all snow conditions). I was landing my first 540s on directional rossignal slalom skis, and never really had a second thought about it. this is perhaps for another argument though.
All in all, if you like to charge runs, I think you should give these skis a try, they are epic, and more powerful than any of my race skis prior.
How many snowboarders does it take to screw in a lightbulb? Enough, but how many NSers does it take to overuse a cool signature? about 10.
