juicedrummer11what skis are they?
KravtZLets think about this OP. Yes, "park" skis are a little tougher than average skis but more or less built the exact same way as normal skis which aren't meant for park.
You continuously slam, slide, grind your skis on ice, metal, pvc, plastic, etc ALL day for an entire season. Of course they wont last. My "park" skis have lasted me 4 years now. I don't ski rails often. It is not the manufacturers fault you decide to do that on your skis. They have zero obligation to build "tougher" skis or warranty your skis. Honestly I cant stand park rats like you who have zero common sense.
THEDIRTYBUBBLEWhen it comes to park skis, it's pretty much a matter of luck. I've had skis last me two seasons of heavy park riding, and I've had skis last me one month of moguls and an occasional rail.
jmellberg800seems pretty weird as there isnt a huge difference on the technology. What skis are you on that lasted you so long and how often did you ski
Young_pattyDamn that sucks, I got moment pb&j's late last year and have ridden them about the same if not a little longer(strictly parks and rails cause I live in MN) and they've been holding up fine just a few chips on the top sheet
williamelliott1i hate it when people bash their skis and do disasters to flat then complain that the edge cracked. If you wanted an invincible ski then it would have to weigh like 10 pounds per ski
THEDIRTYBUBBLEI was on a pair of 2012 Dynastar sixth sense distorters. They lasted a full winter (multiple times a week from late November to mid April). They lasted a week of water ramping, multiple summer setup sessions, and were still intact enough for me to use them as an urban ski last winter. Loved those planks. It was also the only cool graphic Dynastar ever made. I don't think they make them the same these days.
jmellberg800yeah these will probably become urban skis for me, when you say a couple times a week do you mean 2 or 3 or do you mean more. cause right now i go about 5-6 times so im probably gonna go a lot more
HAMNATIONwith enough glue and rivets days or weeks longer
jmellberg800So the so what of this long and probably hard to follow post is
jmellberg800i said in the article they are moment vices. They are a more expensive ski but the edges arent 2.5 millimeters thy are 2.2
parkplaygroundConsidering how much you ski I don't see any issues. My skis have last 2 seasons but they also have close to no edge underfoot and plenty of missing base+ strips of top sheet missing.
It depends on when you determine the skis you have are too beat to ride on. Some people say they need new sticks after an edge pullout and some ride their skis til they snap.
