09 salomon suspects
has anyone riden these yet and do they work like all over the show or just park??
I hear they are the same as the Dumonts except that they have less of that edge armor, but they look pretty cool.
I LIKE ATOMIC SKIS
getting these for sure next year, just look at the product vid in the gear preview
looks to me like a fatter kung-fujas, an all mountian freestyle ski with a little more freestyle in it than other all mountain twin tips. id buy em if i had the money for sure.
if you can't ski invaders out of the park either just stay in the park or learn to ski. --LMP$
im so gonna buy em
The Sky's The Limit
the dumonts have more edge armor and a stiffer tail for slaying pipe.
the suspects look sick though, i hope they're not real expensive
but yeah if anybody has skied them, post something
kung-fujas is def fatter than the suspects. suspects look sick, but they dont wow me. theyre a little stiffer than i like, i was much happier on last years dumonts
I skied them for about 5 runs, and they were almost exactly the same as the 09 dumonts which i did about 5 runs on right before these,. and the one major thing i noticed about the suspect was that they were super dope for nollies, they felt really good for me, at 5'11 130 pounds. i like them both. neither are really likethe 07 or 08 dumonts, which i absolutly loved, found them to be good and fast(key for my none heavyness) and also incredably durable. cuz with the o7 and o8 dumonts i found that the turn kinda felt like it was generated from the tail, and felt weird to disengage a turn at first, but after a few days of rails it was all good and feeling comfortable.... the new stuff didn't have taht weird feeling with the turns and the tail, and just felt good, lively, fun and comfortable...
sorry i couldnt tell you more about suspect, hopefully i helped some
dream it ya fuckin dreamers
^^thanks dude i've been looking for a good review on those skis
were the suspects as awesomely poppy as last years dumonts?
and i think the weird feeling in the tail might have been because ur dumonts are most likely center-mounted, so they had more tail to engage in a turn, while the suspects/dumonts probably weren't if they were demo skis. but maybe they were, thats just my guess.
I havnt ridden them yet, but i am getting them the day they come out, they are gunna be soo dirty.
3 week summer camp test coming soon. I just inspected a set and I must say I am impressed enough to search and add my 2 cents worth.
The flex, the reinforced edges, the sidewalls, width, shape and graphics are making this ski look absolutely awesome!
