tomPietrowskiI'm getting a couple of all mnt skis this season. For more soft snow conditions I'm going on3p Jeffery 114 but they will be a bit big and too rocketed for you I would guess. My harder snow all mnt ski is going to be the Solomon Qlab. Those skis absoluty rip. They rail a turn like a race ski but the nose rocker an early ride tail still make them stable an pivoty in fresh snow. Certainly not a ski for just messing about on but if you like to really ski hard and fast they are well wort a look.
MartianManCant wait for the Q Lab. The idea of putting full on race construction on a 105 waisted directional big mtn ski is fucking genius. Stable as heck, just a complete inbounds driver. The Armada Invictus and 14/15 K2 Annex 108 seem to be following along this path as well. Awesome new era of skis.
tomPietrowskiYeah I totally agree. And im super excited for the QlabBC too. There are some new bindings on the way too which are going to pair up with those skis really well. Exciting times.
MartianManYeah those are sick as hell. Are they as light as they say they are? I saw somewhere that each ski was 1700g, which seems almost impossible for a 115mm ski.
tomPietrowskiYeah man they are that light it's the core they are using and the monoquoce (sp?) construction. Stick a tech binding on them and they will be a sick backcountry ski. Light but actually still wide enough and stiff enough to really shred.
shredding_pandaK2 shreditor 102 my all around ski last season and I have nothing bad to say
last_tangoThat depends on how much OP weighs. At my 220lbs weigh I could flex the 102 shreditors over like a burrito. I'm kinda pissed off at k2 cause I like the shape of the 102 just not the flex.
cobychowIcelantic nomad RKR hands down. So much fun riding that pair of skis
