ski seems very light and has an interesting shape.
the skis shape is deffinatley designed to be geared towards the east coast, fat ski market. i will be pushing this as a park ski option as well as a 1 ski quiver for someone who likes to travel around (i work in a ski shop in central ontario)...as i like the idea that the ski has alot of rocker early and quickly turns into a normal cambered ski with a 'normal' sidecut.
it has slight reverse sidecut in the shovel and tail to allow less hooking and superior float in softer snow.
however, because it has alot of rocker early, and quickly tapers off, the regular camber and sidecut underfoot should be more than enough to handle a little ice.
a soft shovel and medium underfoot and tail flex add to the stability. i personally wish they made the shovel stiffer (hand flex) to allow for better switch riding. (all speculation from looking and mollesting the ski over the past few days)
this shape is superior to a ski such as a K2 rocker design(which i like more) that has less rocker over a larger area. (or so it seems as i havnt actually compared numbers against numbers)...in the effect that is allows for better handling in ice/corn snow, do to regular camber underfoot.
hope this helps anyone with any problems/concerns.
