11/12 ON3P 181 Filthy Rich Review.
Measure true to length.
About me: 15, 6,1" 180 lbs. Skiing since i could walk. Skied 100+ days a year for the last 5-6 years. I like to ski fast, turn, slash and air stuff. In the park i like big jumps with long transitions and long landings. I don't enjoy hucking my meat of small jumps. Taping, jumping and spinning of stuff are all a part of my day.
Skis (In the same category) that i have had spent time on (as in more than 2 days): Armada ar7, ar6, alpha 2, ar3. Fischer Addicts, Surface No times, Salomon Suspect, Line elizabeths, Line Chronics, Line Afterbangs, Line Anthems, Line blends, On3p Jeronimos. Probably more, but that's what i remember of the top of my head.
Out of them i hate: Ar7s, Alphas, No times and suspects.
About the skis: On3p did it again. These skis are the bomb. Medium/medium/soft flex, little bit stiffer than ar7s. Super light, thick edges, rocker profile looks sick, lightest swing weight i've had on a ski like this. The whole construction feels super bomber. Graphics are detailed and pop nicely without being flashy.
Mounted at: True center with Fks 14's. Boots: Dalbello Krypton pros.
Groomed - They rock the groomed slopes like slalom skis. The first few days with edges were a blast and even with railed down edges they still preform great as long as the snow is a little soft. The turn radius is a bit different than other skis, the harder you carve the tighter the turn. They still perform great making larger turns if you dont edge to hard. The bases are super fast. On3p puts in a nice pattern in the base i can tell you that.
Pow - Not their best area, but they still work. Skied them in 7-8 inches, you had to carry your speed well and stay in the steeper terrain but it works. J-mos perform much better. You cant really expect much from a center mounted park ski, but they work.
Bumps - Bumps are tons of fun! Pivoting is a breeze and they are very maneuverable. No problem throwing little threes here and there. Swing weight is so light. Spread eagles look mad fly.
Jumps - WOHO. Tons and tons of fun on jumps. Pop for days! The skis carve in nicely and you can put all your confidence in the ski. Never been scared that they are going to wash out on me. They spin nicely with even weight. Switch skiing is the same as forwards. When things go wrong they are very forgiving and let you wheely out of you land backseat. For me i like jmos better for jumps. I just enjoy the feeling of a bigger ski in the air.
Rails - They rock rails. The swing weight is very light and they are haven't hooked on me once while doing surface swaps. Not much more to say.
Playfulness - Butterss. All day long. The rocker and flex work together to give you a poppy aggressive butter, they pop you right out of it. General riding around is tons of fun and you can press and tap whatever you want.
Durability - My experience with ON3P has been BOMBER. I beat the piss out of my skis and these skis look fantastic after about 50+ days of riding. They are in such good condition that i will continue to use them next season. Thats the first time ever for me that a park ski will be used for another season. I am shocked at how good condition the bases, the edges, the topsheets are in. The flex is still sweet, the pop is still there and the shape is still the same. Amazing
Spark-notes: You want a ski that will pop you to the moon? Stomp all day in the thug zone and butter your bread? This is the ski for you.
Am i missing something? Dont be afraid to ask!
