I got a pair on warranty bout a month ago cos last years blew on me after two weeks on white. they're cheap and cheerful i guess, not completely symmetrical which i didn't like and they're kind of for the all mountain jibber. apparently this years planks aren't likely to blow out so much (the edges) cos of the same stuff they have in the suspects but its just rumour... but if i hadn't got a new pair on warranty i wouldn't have bothered with salomon park skis in slightest. hope it paints a picture.
Well its a cheap foam core ski. Its the same ski as the knight and the vamp. Its basically a 1mm narower Lord with a foam core. If he hits rails hard then yeah it proberbly will break pretty fast. Its a cap ski so not too strong against rails. For all mountain it should be fun, if he is fairly small, and it should be good up to med jumps in the park.
