I need your advice. My park skis are shot, its time for some new ones. I am 6'2 and 205lbs so I will definitely be needing a stiffer ski. I have been researching and have narrowed it down to a fem options;
Anyone have any advice between those? and/or other suggestions for skis
Great skis, best park ski I've been on. I'm 5'11" and 175 lbs and I ride the 176 cm, sick for jumps but can also destroy rails. Super light and lively, they butter nicely, they're crazy fast and haul ass on groomers.
If you have any questions you can PM me, I'm still riding the OG Pipecleaners with skinny edges and all that and they're sick.
heres my suggestion since we are similar in build I'm 6'4 185 so i may be lighter, but i do know that i need a longer stiffer ski for when im in the pipe or hucking off a jump
so i sold my fischer addicts.. because they were too short
i demoed the wall in 185
no doubt it is a ski you will enjoy.
the skis i was on were at true center (being that its a symetrical ski)
i highly recomend this ski if you ar elike me and:
-spend most of your time in the park
-like to ski aggressively
-enjoy bombing the hill switch
not to say i dont love to jib and that these arent great jib skis, but i have my 178 octolands for that (way more buttery and playful
There are as many kinds of skiers as there are lines down the mountain, but we're all pretty much the same, we all want more powder days, we all want to fly, and whether it's our first run through the pipe or our tenth trip to Alaska, we can all fall. Skiers are a community united by a shared passion and a shared understanding of the risks involved.
181 and skinny is not enough ski for a bigger dude. I'm 6'2 and only about 170lbs and I've been riding a 185 Scratch BC in the park. That's a 98mm waist so they're more stable than a traditional park ski but they're still plenty skinny for a pure park ski. Once you start riding a wider ski in the park you'll never look back.
Check out the 185 S5, 189 Kung Fujas, and 185 ARV. They're all great park skis for someone of above average size.
