so today i was building my summer set-up...then i saw a fed ex truck stop in front of my house...i instantly sprinted to my front yard.
...only to realize i havent even got shipping comfirmation yet.
turns out it was my next door neighbors new snowboard. fml
I WANT MY J-MOS PLEASE! fuck i might not be able to ride them this season D:
(sorry to interupt the heated skins debate)
everytime my inbox gets another message i get really excited.
im dying to ski/ mount/see/feel/cuddle with these skis.
that would be awesome....id love to have little on3p-lets skiing around the mountain!
....i think i have to de-tune the edges first though :P
so I go to north shore ski and board today to get my jmos mounted walk into the store, and the first thing I hear is "Are those on3p's?" Turns out Wrens brother works there and he was stoked to see some more on3p rolling through the store
ON3P 191 Caylor Review
Height: 5'10" on a good day
Weight: 175lbs dripping wet
Style: I like skiing bigger fast more tech lines, as well as jumping off stuff when the opportunity presents itself. That type of thing
Current skis: 191 Caylor (mounted at recommended) w/ sth16, 186 Billy Goat (mounted at recommended) w/ fks185, 174 Czar (mounted 2 up from recommended) w/ sth14, 178 Line Anthems (mounted dead center) w/ px12 jib’s
Other skis I like: Atomic Bent Chetlers
Other skis I do not like: Ep pro, bacon, 4frnt msp, 4frnt eph
First Impression: This is the ski that I’ve been looking for and have just not found until now. Build quality amazing. They are super light for such a large ski. Scott and Rowen knew Hood was going to be getting some snow finally and worked their asses off through the night so I could get them mounted up to ride yesterday. A huge thanks to you guys for making it happen, you made my weekend.
Conditions past two days: About 14in of pow, windblown, trees, ice, chunk and even a few groomers.
First day of riding I honestly didn’t have writing a review in mind and just skied everything that was in front of me. There was no learning curve with these skis at all just clicked in and it felt as if I’d been skiing them for years.
Pow: They killed everything. It didn’t matter if it was at high speed or low speed these things were a blast.
Crud: With the crud that was up there these things blasted straight through effortlessly to say the least. Even with how light these skis feel they didn’t once feel like they were being knocked around.
Trees: I’ll be honest I was kind of worried to take them into tight situations not knowing how they were going to perform, but after a few runs it became very apparent that they did not feel like they were handling like a 191 length ski. When you wanted to get the tails thrown around to make the turn they did just that with ease.
Drops: Nothing to huge because the conditions were less than ideal for anything of any substantial size. Couple 5+ foot drops felt very comfortable. I can’t wait to really push these things if we get the snow for it.
Groomers: No tip flap or bouncing around of any sort. For a 120 underfoot ski these things after you set the edge you could rail turns. I actually want to have a day of just lapping some nice corduroy.
2nd Day Little more snow overnight
Ended up riding pow all day long, which was nice for a change. Once again blow away by how much fun these things are. They surpassed my every expectation of them. Hand my best run of the year with a big air/drop into the top of heather. Landing on these things was very stable… At this point I was very concerned about the amount of speed I was carrying…. Not a problem in the slightest they love speed, 3 turns later I was standing at the bottom of the canyon almost in a daze of how well these skis perform.
Here are few shots of them... Sorry for the shitty lighting
