So I've heard a lot about these two skis, and I was wondering what the differences were. I am looking at the 176, and they both have the same measurements, Elf-Shoe Tech, and A2's have a slightly smaller turn radius. So help me NS, what are the differences, pros and cons?
Alpha 1s have the pipe cleaner base and core while the Alpha 2s have the AR6/Thall base and core. So the Alpha 1 will be lighter and faster, but the Alpha 2 will be more durable and have a smaller turning radius.
