so i went to go look at skis and i was toally eye opened by the hell bents. im debating weather or not to get these cuz they are so sick. but how do they preform? how is the flex(i tele so i need a soft flex for powder) and most of all how are they swith in powder?
they are the most fun skis ever totally kills it in deep and can stomp any jump like WHAT!!! you watch in the next couple of years every ski company will have "hellbents" rockered skis are the future of backcountry skiing
doesn't seem like it'd be that much different than regular bindings, i've heard that people, esp bigger people can have a tendency to fall over foward on hellbents at first, cuz they are so soft and the contact area is so short, but you'd have that issue w tele bindings anyway.. i dont know
i wouldnt have baught them for the graphics personally i like my hippys more but i really like the rocker and when u lay the ski the area that touches the snow looks like it would make for a soft poppy ski
Yes technically they are reversed camber, but not through out the whole ski, that is why we refer to what we have made as Rocker. It has a Tip and Tail 40-40 Rocker. Meaning there is 40mm of space between the tips and tails when pair together base to base, which are flat. We meassure this from the two points known as Forward Contact Point in the tip and Aft Contact Point in the tail. The Rocker then extends inward on the ski for 40cm from each of these points. Thus you have the 40-40 Rocker. A Volant Spatula was technically a full reverse camber design. While that worked great in pow, we found through testing that the flat underfoot section really brought you the hard snow performance you need to not feel like you are riding bars of soap in a bathtub.
