Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
NigelSteinWe got them in the shop I'm working at this winter and they seem pretty great. Buttery, but not overly flexy and I'm looking forward to trying them this winter. I got Kartel 106s in the mail, I'll tell you how those go over in VT this winter as well. I'd go for something like the Rossi Slat if you were looking for something else as well
bdowningDo we have an actual size on the new 177 Shreditor 102? I know k2 measures length after shaping so I'm deciding between the 177 and 184. I'm 5'8, 165 lbs here.
starsky_hucksI have a pair of the 184s, rode them in nz this year.
First impressions - loved them, very playful
NZ powder - amazing!!! dont need anything wider in this hemisphere 9/10
groomers - carve well 7/10
icey groomers - Terrrirble, but hey who wants to ski those 3/10
chop - once again amazing - the long sofl shovel bounced over anything and absorbed most of the impact. 8/10
park - OK, but obviously not a park ski. 6/10
Impression after 3 weeks.
love these skis, very playful and I just wanted to launch off every little bump and ramp, butter all around the mountain and slash everywhere. on steeper technical chutes I did feel like I wanted a stiffer ski to charge but hey you cant have it all.
ghosthopI spent some time on the shreditor 102 last february, went into it not expecting much because I am not a big fan of k2 and was pleasantly surprised. They are definitely more of an all mountain freestyle oriented ski than a park ski. They were noticeable heavier than a lot of skis of that size. They also have a stout enough flex that carrying speed through chop and hitting drops is fun, but not something that I would be thrilled hitting rails on a regular basis with.
Def would do chronic over infamous.
Just as an aside, I'm from the east coast and ski a rossi s6(sickle for you youngins) which is 106 underfoot and was always happy with it on groomers. You notice the width if you're really trying to get in a bunch of carves, but I'm not a dad. Really appreciate a bit of extra width when popping off bumps or hitting the trees when all the snow has been skied and is chopped up.
waveydaveyI ski on the east coast (a lot of icy groomers) so I think I'm going to need something with a narrower waist. I was thinking maybe the Chronic or Infamous. Any experience or thoughts with these skis?
bdowningMounted them at -2.5 back from truth center. I'll let you guys know how I like them in variable snow conditions.
awesamWas this -2.5 from true center or the marked core center?
How are they mounted at this point?
(Context: I'm trying to decide where to mount mine and deciding between -2.5 to -3.5 from core center for 50% park/50% all-mountain-jib-ski)
waveydaveyThe Slats look like they would be a good option. I looked em up but I didn't really see many reviews on them. Do you know how they ski?
PentHausIdk if this helps, but last years 179 measures 182.5cm...
