I love these skis! They're really fun, durable and inexpensive.
I'm not even kidding when I say these are the best skis I've ever ridden. My brother was so damn jealous he ended up getting the same setup as me. They fee superl solid on jumps and they're really nimble on rails. It's the first time I ski a symmetrical ski so it took me a few days to get used to but after I did I had the sudden urge to make love to my skis.
The Stepups look awesome. The graphics on top of the wood create a nice mix of class and badassery.
"Rip off or steal?"
A steal! Literally because somebody actually stole mine :(
They aren't too expensive and they'll last super long providing nobody takes them from you.
These things are made to get beat up. The only issue I had with them was the bases getting dried up really fast so I kept having to wax them all the time.
