I'll admit, sometimes I do with I had a little less ski under my foot when it's not a powder day... but very rarely. And when I'm in the park sliding rails on my park skis, i really do miss my big boys.
I'm going to have to recommend these skis to anybody looking for a new powder tool. they can take you anywhere, and who knows - they might even show you a thing or two along the way.
So far I haven't found one thing I don't like about how these skis preform. One thing you must keep into account in this review is that I ski at Red Mountain, BC for almost the whole season, and that means tight, steep trees. At first, I was a little hesatent about taking a pair of 189cm skis at 108mm underfoot into the tight stuff, but once I got in there my worries were gone. These skis can turn way tighter then I could have imagined, but they can charge just as good as the rest of them too.
Just as you'd expect for a bit ski, they are solid when it comes to sticking shit. even if my body doesn't take the impact of a big drop to a hard landing the skis somehow keep me feet below me and moving downhill. I haven't gone in the park with these sticks, and I probably never will, but the softness of the ski helps throw it around when throwing shit off drops. I don't see myself throwing big spins on them any time soon though.
the graphics on these skis are hands down the coolest looking graphics on a ski - ever. I am so stoked on them.
The only downside of these skis is that they seam to have a very soft topsheet. if my edge hits the topsheet of the other ski it just cuts through it like butter. as of right now it does nothing to the performance of the ski, but I fear that my beautiful skis will soon turn into a normal pair of scratched up skis, but hey - that's life.
Well, I happened to pay the most I have ever paid for a pair of skis to get these things to come home with me. But hey - I needed new skis, I had the money, and they were there just stearing me in the face. I couldn't let them go home with someone who is ungreatfull.
These skis kick major ass... (even if i paid more for the skis then i did on my seasons pass)
I love these skis. At 108mm underfoot they are (in my opinion) all you need for a powder ski. And as fare as powder skis go, these are some of the softest skis you can find. They do what I tell them to do, and they do it happily, unlike some skis that do whatever the fuck they want, and you just gotta enjoy the ride.
I fear the topsheet will get all cut up and ugly faster then i would like, but other then that. it's K2, they know a thing or two about how to make a ski.
