my coach has the halos and i'm probably gonna get the alpha ones, anyway he rides rails every day and his barely even look used. The skis have a shit load of pop and ride just fine on rails. They will last you a long time and the graphics are sick!
skis are so durable, poppy and fun pretty all around the mountain. i hit rails with them every day i take them out and then take them into some tight trees and they slay both. Ive heard some mean rocks go under me and still have no base damage at all after almost 20 plus days on them. suppery poppy and fun to butter...and imo graphic are ill
They are alright at rails, great at jumps and everything else except anything over 10 inches of powder which is understandable. I felt like being a dumbass and went through a field of death cookies and they handeld them suprising well. Definately get the extra lenth it helps soo much. Super comftable at high speeds, I got up to 74mph and they were begging for more speed. The biggest jump I've taken them was a 30 footer and they felt so natural in the air. Anything better then a 30 foot table I'd get the Alpha 1. I'm 6' 170lbs and the 182's are a perfect match.
Business in the front and party in the back is what i live by.
