Does anyone have any details on 09 line blends ?
such as flex, weight, and other stuff like that?
The flex is pretty much the same as last year, there is still no metal in the ski but its still moderately stiff. (not as stiff as a prophet) They put full side wall construction in the ski with a beveled side wall to prevent top sheet delam. they made them 100mm underfoot. they ski amazing in a lot of conditions. i was on them for the first time a couple of weeks ago and loved them. the graphic is sick too
and how do you think this ski is in park and buttering because i know nothing about 07 blends so please dont compare
heard they are easy to throw around and good for big tricks
they're a bit too stiff to be buttery skis but they should be amazing in all around conditions, they would be a great one ski quiver.
thats what i dont like to hear. im pre-ordering them soon.
whats a good soft ski thats 100-110 in the waist?
You only think it's a crisis
I ski Kicking Horse
pm me if you head out this way
lizzies or bacons if you want a soft line ski.
the blends are more all mountain oriented where the stiffness will definitely help.
are the elizibeths heavy ski
also is there any big differences with the 07 ans 08
not particularly, and the elizabeth is unchanged since the 05/06 season I believe
yeah def not a buttering ski for the park. its more for freeriding. if you are looking for a soft 110mm ski for the park check out the elizabeth. really really soft, great for jumps
all they said on SIA was that they are a totally new design and construction, complete with sidewalls....... they are 132-100-122...im pretty sure they increased the width of the center of the ski for next year. Should be a pretty cool ski. id like to know how they flex tho.....compared to maybe the invaders.
stiffer than the chronics, altho not by a whole lot. the sidewall material is super super super thick. like double the normal thickness if not more. the ski is straight sex, i might take a pair out to utah with me the ned of march, unless i can get something reverse chamber.
super bomber construction tho, im amped for em.

yeah perfect explanation. They are pretty sweet. so much better than last years. the construction is bomb proof
