Brigade vs bridge
The Rossi brigade is stiffer then the volkl bridge. Am i correct?
Ski the east
nah man, the bridge is as stiff as the karmas were which = pretty burly. rossis have a more forgiving flex for the park but are a tad less stable when your really ripping down the hill. id base your decision on how much you ski park and how stiff you like your skis. im 180 pounds and cant really butter my karmas unless i literally throw all my weight
"thats how its done, balls out, first run"
I've skied both, and the Bridge is definitely stiffer than the Brigade. The Bridge is a stiff ski, not too stiff, but definitely stiff. I've skied Karmas too, and the flex is very similar. The Brigades have a rocking chair designed flex, stiffer underfoot and softer in the tip and tail. The Bridge is just a solid, stiff woodcore ski, like most Volkl skis are. The Brigades are lighter too. Hope that helps.
so would you say that the brigades are as stiff at the waist and softer in the tip and tails because of the WRS?
Ski the east
Yeah, but it's also how they make their cores. They're more dense underfoot and less dense at tip and tail.
