I've had the privilege to ski the Krypto several times at later half of the season last year.
I love them. Super quick side to side. Float like crazy. Landings are way smoother than you expect, every time I skied away from a hit I was surprised how soft and stable the landing was.
I wanted to design a ski like this about a year ago. I liked the chetler, but thought the 183 was too short for an everyday ski and the 193 was too much swing weight for spinning. My buddy showed up one day at my work with a truck full of skis and pulled out the krypto and said try these tomorrow, that night it dumped so in the A.M. I hit the 'bird to try em out and couldn't get enough of them. I have skied them everyday since. The 187/189 is the same ski, I think it's perfect for me for 90% of the days at Snowbird.
Spinning 9/10 stars for a fat ski, well balanced, not much swing weight.
Switch pow 10/10 stars never skied switch in pow or variable conditions that easy.
Float 10/10 Can't get it to dive...ever. I can land front seat all day and never go over the handle bars.
Side to side quick slashing/ buttering 10/10 stars I now use trees like gates, never liked the trees and tight spots til now. Totally changed the lines I look for. They dont burn my legs, cause they so easy to move around.
Hard pack 7/10 stars, Good solid edge, not a race ski, but not a wimpy noodle either.
Crud/windpack 7/10 stars Good overall and never hooks an edge, but would have to be stiffer for a bad snow day in a big mountain competition.
Overall. I'm in love with this ski. I will ski this 80% of the time next year. I would opt for something stiffer, smaller for hardpack. And I hope they build a big mountain competition version with a super stiff gut for no speed limit on bad snow. Other than those two scenarios it's perfect. Get 'em !!!
