obviously you dont know sarcasm when you see it...dumbass
Thank god! I hate that graphic too.. and, personally, I don't see the need for a 132 waisted normal sidecut powder jib ski, especially since K2 has heavy materials, that must weigh more than the current 179 which is 11.2lbs..
And yes, I agree with B-runge that K2 will take a popularity step up next year, if they have good cores then they are well on their way to being near the best design wise(IMO their rocker shapes aren't perfect, I don't like the huge tip at the end of the rocker. They'll fix that sometime). Still I'b a big believer that symmetrical skis are a total sales pitch, even if they ski pretty well, they would be better if they weren't symmetrical.
Some Solly news as of how I know it..
New touring boot(more of boot with walk mode, but it will work) based onthe Falcon shell(YAY! My only fitting boots ever!). 2 lower buckles 1 upper and the power strap.
New ski that sort of replaces the XW Lab in the mid-high 19_ length, stiff(ish) with tip and maby a little tail rocker. Should be beast. Can't remember the waist width..
New 120mmish waisted pow ski with tip and tail rocker(finally a real Solly pow jib ski?)
New ninety-something waisted park ski with tip and tail rocker
I also remember talk of a 198ish Solly Rocker(instead of just a 192) but not sure if that's happening.
Some info may be off but I think it's a good view of what's up. Looks like Solly may have stepped up their game a lot, now them and K2 just need to add some taper/reverse sidecut skis!
