How to choose first BC Skis
I'm gooin' to grab my first BC skis. I've got 2 possibilities:
K2 HellBent and K2 obSETHed.
First are true rocker and reeeeealy fat, so they're gonna be perfect in landings..but what about acceleration and taking off? How will they behave on hard snow?
ive heard alot more things about the hellbents, tons of people i know have them
owning a pair of hellbents myself. they are NOT an everyday ski.
the Seth in years prior has been much more of a do it all ski.
you really need to decide if youre gonna be skiing powder and nothing but or if you want to have a little more versatility.
hope that helps!
I'm a park rider 100%. I've never tryed nither deep pow nor BC. But this winter I'm taking a 2 weeks BC trip. So this should be BC skis 100%..
Ohnestly, I'm thinkin' about HellBent more, but the only thing that skares me: How do they behave on kicker? I mean..kicker's made of strong, hard snow and those guys are for pow..How is gettin' speed, taking off, riding switch and taking off in switch on em?
