They only shipped out a couple weeks ago.
They had a group of guys go try 'em out in Chile though.
"Adam Swisher on the Districts
Q: What did you think of the Districts?
A: I loved them, they were a really great ski. They really charged hard, especially on this difficult snow pack that we have right now. They blasted right through it and were a lot of fun.
Q: Did you go airborne at all?
A: A little. I was following a couple guys that do some crazy stuff and I was able to keep up fine."
"David Pratt on the Districts
Q: What was your overall feeling about the Districts?
A: I was a little worried about length at first because I ski a 179. I got on them and didnít feel overwhelmed with the length. They were light and soft. I was also concerned about getting some chatter based on the flex, but the bamboo cores snapped back, they stayed damp and quiet. I was also impressed with the sidecut, I could lay into the turns and really dig an edge in.
Q: What kind of snow did you ski?
A: I skid the crud, a little bit of powder, got them on the groomed runs and I liked them everywhere.
Q: What do you usually ski on? And how do they compare?
A: I ski the K2 Seth Vicious right now. Theyíre a little bit similar, but the Districts are little lighter and definitely softer, which they somehow pull off. Probably from the bamboo.
Q: Where do you usually ski?
A: Alta, UT
Q: Anything else you want to say?
A: I enjoyed these skis a lot. Iím looking to buy a pair. Iím also looking forward to seeing Bluehouse in the future."
"Shane on the Districts
Iím used to a Gotama. The Gotama is stiffer than the Districts. They felt a little bouncy on my first few runs. However, I soon learned I simply needed to adjust to a ski with more flex. Our bamboo cores are everything Jared and Adam told me about, they snap back hard and fast. Once I learned this, I started laying into my turns a little more and the bounce went away. I never felt like I had to hold back. I felt free to charge once I adjusted to their softer ways. The times I hit small patches of lighter snow felt good. I could tell they know their way to the top of the powder.
There were hardly any opportunities to drop anything with decent height. I found one ten-footer and flew it. I can honestly say the skis made the landing much more comfortable than it should have been. I know I would have felt the stomp more on my Gots. Bamboo softness gets a point here for dampening power.
I was impressed with their smoothness at high speeds. . . Zero chatter. Nothing but good thrills on the corduroy.Shane on the Districts and the 179 MRs"
