So going from skiing to boarding and back to skiing over the years i've decided skiings the way to go. I'm 5'6 135 and ski pretty aggressively on everything. I only want one ski so it's gotta do it all. What size also?
i have one lifes, havent ridden them yet but every time i walk in my room and see them i pee a little bit... i can tell you that they are the stiffest rockered ski i have ever flexed. Also something to note is that they definately have camber underfoot, the site says they dont but they do, so im guessing that they are going to do really well on groomers. as for their rocker, you cant come close, kills my old hellbents and kills my freinds ep's. imo go with one lifes.
These skis are meant for entirely different things..
I have experience with both of these skis. I own 181 rockers and have ridden 189 one lifes for about 3 days.
If you want a more park/jib specific ski with a lower swing weight, smaller rocker profile, and narrower footprint I'd look towards the rockers.
Surface one lifes are a much more all mountain / powder jib ski. They're about 25mm fatter, weigh considerably more and have a much more aggressive rocker profile that is directed much more towards a bc jib ski. They won't explode if you take them in to the park, but you probably won't enjoy it as much as a more park specific ski would help you.
I'm not surprised people just jump in to threads and make reccomendations without considering this. You need to take the time and consider what aspect of the mountain you want to spend more time on..
Personally if I had the option to buy another pair of moment skis, I would look in to reno jibs over rockers. They're just a little more versatile.
