hey guys, i learnt to ski last year, and i was skiing most of the runs at my mountain fairly easily, so i decided to start freeskiing. i've been pointed towards the salomon teneighty foil setup wit either z12 B85 or B90. and for boots, should i go for spk, or foil? btw, i've heard good stuff about line chronic and armada ar6, should i go for either of those two? thanks guys
you have done your research...looks like you can make the right decision yourself.
Sportin' the bath robe steeze.
MESSAGE ME I HAVE SKIS FOR SALE: Salomon 1080 Flyers BRAND NEW $225 plus ship, 720s $200 BRAND NEW plus ship. DYNASTAR NBT's BRAND NEW $225 PLUS SHIP. VOLKL-DOGENS 168 BRAND NEW $225 PLUS SHIP. I have others as well just mesage me
yeah, so what? i play hockey and skate up to 4 times a week, and a long time snowboarder so my shit's in the right place. i'd probably be a park rat in skiing tho. skating made it SOOO much easier to learn, i was carving on my first day (well i got a short private lesson too lol), and snowboarding made it natural for me to whizz over snow.
....there was a man who entered a local paper's pun contest. He sent in ten
different puns, in the hope that at least one of the puns would win.
Unfortunately, no pun in ten did
thanks, but i dont want a cap ski (k2 silencer) and HOLY SHIT, A FOAM CORE IN FOILS?!!! def not buying those anymore. ok one last question, would i be able to do rails with armada pipe cleaners? if not i'll just take ar6.
ya the foil boot is sick...the salomn rep gave me them instead of the spk (i aked for the spk) and he gave me the foil and he told me that controlling that boot will be harb and there will be lots of toe room, ive only skied my bbots 2 times...but i love them..they are so light and easy to control its a really good boot.......as for the skis i would say any salomon twin tip how tall are you and whats your wheight?????
here in boulder there is a shop that carries the SPK, I'm definitely buying them next year, they fit my wider foot awesome and the two buckle system is pretty cool. It's really a great boot, the foil isn't bad either, they seemed pretty similar to me.
my friend has the spk and boyy do they look confortable. they are also pretty light i hear? my other friend had 1080 foils a couple yrs ago ( idk if its diff) but his delamd so he got dogens
k2s are good tho
thank u guys so much, so receptive. yeah uh b80 means eighty millimetre brake for ur waist width lol same for the other ones. kryptons are fuck expensive, and spks seem nice, but they are hard to find. so i got my setup, ar6, armada poles, salomon binders, and teneighty foils. waht about dem 4frnt binders tho? they got some nice brake for riding switch i hear. btw guys if u want the same shin pad shit goin on wit ur foils as the spks then buy R.E.D. rail guards, they made for boarding but i hear they are off the fucking hook. for the guy who asked, im about 5'8" and weigh 147, i think i should be riding around 170. and im sorry but foam core = wet noodle, no thanks salomon. now, like i said, 4frnt binders, or salomon binders?
i've had a few pair of salomon's. i live in wisconsin so the skiing is pretty brutal on them here. either way, my salomon's held up twice as long as my friend's armadas and another's lines. however, the topsheet did begin to split from all the bang of icy landings and other shit. the thing to remember is that all skis will begin to come apart someday, its enevitable. one thing i did was install my own rivets, kind of like k2 puts on their skis. and if i'm not mistaken, salomon has riveted their spk model, the foil is not. salomon really does make quality products, i would suggest the foil for an all around ski, but you may want to take a look at the k2 public enemys or fujatives. depending on where you ski, i would suggest a ski with rivets, it will really prolong the lifespan of the ski.
i unno man, if spks are wood then i wouldnt mind em, but foam is just retarded, wood has wway more pop, and i just asked some guy on tramdock (online shop) and he said foils are softer, so ar6 would kill it.
foils are a great ski! i have some myself! it minght be a jump, for your second year of sking! and the difference between the z12 ti b85 and the b80 is the color. its the same binding. i happen to think the white ones look amazing though!
unless your a big guy and push real hard, pullin the big shit your second year, not saying you can't, the foils will hold up and after two seasons you will probably get new skis anyway/maybe, and also i have last years foil and they are keeping their pop real well but im not that big of a guy and im only like 135, also i guess many say the core is still decent after a season or two of good use, hope that helped a little
