skidemon22the only time symmetrical skis work well is if you have them center mounted (or at least close to center mounted). and they only work well in the park where you may want to carve (switch) into a jump or on a a switch landing
w_skierbut then wouldn't you have to have a completely neutral stance to keep your weight over the sidecut?
this is all theoretical of course and you people could probably carve on a 2x4 if they really wanted too but its kind of weird to think about
cobra_commanderThe idea that a symetrical sidecut is advantageous for skiing switch is kinda silly. Simplistic, but wrong. The best park ski ever made (Line Chronic) isn't symetrical.
K-Dot.The chronic has 4mm difference between tip and tail. Refer to my post, symmetrical skis have a purpose.
Haha you say true asymmetrical skis need at least 1cm of difference between tip and tail? Last time I checked asymmetrical means not symmetric.
Also even though the YLES are the same width tip/tail, they are not symmetrical.
K-Dot.Clearly my point sailed over your head. Yes, by the nitty gritty millimeter they are not truly symmetrical but do you realize how small 2mm on each side is?
My point is that they are much closer to being a symmetrical ski than being directional. Go ski a directional ski switch and tell me if its easier than a symmetrical or near symmetrical ski.
Also I'm aware that the YLEs aren't symmetrical in flex pattern, etc. we're merely discussing dimensions.
S.J.W.Don't get all upset just because your company makes multiple symmetrical skis.
We're just having a nice convo
S.J.W.I thought you were someone else, my apologies.
I know realize you're that one kid from the drop with ramen noodles for hair.

But yeah now you know that every post I make isn't credible and is probably just trolling
