Traveling Circus vs Chronic
I want to hear pros and cons for both.
more playful with a little more rocker
more of a rail ski
not quite as all mountain capable as the chronic
discontinued so will be reletively cheap
little stiffer than the TC
Can shred pretty well on groomers and all mountain
holds well on big jumps
can fit your 90mm binding better
has a sweet graphic
Couldn't say it better than swandog. TC= buttery and playful, better for rails and fun for screwing around anywhere, Chronic= stiffer but poppier, will hold up on jumps better. IMO both are great, Chronic will be a bit faster since it has a sintered base while the TC has an extruded base.
TC: pros are that its buttery and playful for rails and you can pretty much ollie over anything with its flex. Cons are that its a bit too buttery for bigger jumps and IMO feels kinda sketchy.
Chronic: pros are that its stiffer so you can shred the xls with no worry. Also it has low swing weight which is great on rails. Also it is super light. Cons are that its not as flexible and playful as the Tcs. Also the graphic chips super easy.
Over all Id recommend the Chronics over the TCs (Ive ridden both), but go for the ski that suits your style the best.
It all depends on what type of skier you are if you like a wider buttery ski than the Traveling Circus would be good and they are cheaper than the Chronic. The Chronic is also great choice if you are willing to spend a little more. They are a little more narrow and won't perform as well in slush in krud. but they are both very good skis.
