Badmind or OMW? Which is better and why? They seem like the same ski to me.
Also is the flex on the new Soul rider 87 the same as the 97? What about the rocker?
SIP J.P, Sarah, Warnick, C.R., Shane, and all those lost.
Badmind is a cap construction ski instead of a full sidewall sandwich construction like the omw.
I am currently riding badminds but have bought omw's for next season, so I only have an opinion on badminds, which have been great, really light and extremely poppy, semi stiff but definitely soften out once you break them in. riding switch on them is more difficult than my friends skis i have ridden, but as a beginner-inteermediate park ski, riding switch isnt a huge priority
I've skied mostly Nordica for the past few seasons now. OMW was very stiff, lightweight and responsive. Durability wasn't very good however, they barely lasted a season. On Soul Rider's now, a bit softer in the tip and tail, still a generally stiff ski I find. Fun skis for almost anything, can be kind of awkward at times though. Durability is overall better then the OMW too. Planning on the Soul Rider 87 next season, seems like the best traits of both skis
i ski the soulrider 97mm underfoot and it is awesome, kind of bummed that it is now 87
Lookin' for baggy khaki pants PM.
