not trying to be biased just trying to get people stoked on a new company but yeah I am sponsored on their AM team
Boone doesnt expect you to go and do 2 feet of fresh on the 93mm ski. They are really just marketed as the mid-fat, all mountain offering, that can do pow better than the 82 waist. Its for big slopestyle jumps, all mountain ripping, and still allows you to tear up in the park. They arent supposed to be a pair of ARG's here, man lol. They arent even rockered!
In the future, there might be a pow specific fatty ski from boone, but this season, there are 2 ski offerings.
As far as the JO pros having strikingly simlar looks to the twins...
Boone didnt copycat Head's design. These skis were being tested all last year to have them ready for 2009... the graphics were all ready and everything a LOONG time ago. Head just had the same exact graphical Idea at the same exact time thats all.
100% bamboo core?
From my understanding, they dont even have bamboo in their skis, much less an entirely bamboo CORE.
Dude, what do you have against boone? you're ripping them in every other thread about them...
big deal if they ship their skis to europe? its better than shipping them to CHINA like every other company seems to be doing... K2? Volkl? Even Atomic is making their skis in china...
I'd trust European made, american designed skis over chinese made skis any day.
^Volkl makes all their freeride skis in china for some reason or another... Atomic i believe does as well. K2 obv. does.
Chinese made skis are no different than european made skis. It's more a factor of materials used that goes into a skis quality and performance... least from my understanding.
That said, so far my impression with bamboo as a core material is very good. Its snappy, and pretty resiliant. I like that Boone has them in these skis, and i cant wait to rip on them all season long.
