2014 k2 domains and line chronic opinions??
So I really wanna buy a set of skis but I'm torn between k2 2014 domains And 2016 Line chronics I want a very durable ski and I can't go too expensive. I'm leaning toward the domains because of durability and price but I'm worried that they will be too heavy. Does anyone have any experience with either that they can share. I ride mostly park but also will ride all mountain. I am getting into rails and jumps and and looking for it to be a long term ski for multiple seasons. I weigh 155 and am 5'8 if that helps. Also what length should I get which would be short enough to spin but also butter. Sry for the lots of questions but I need some input
Get domains as they're more durable, and if you're on a tight budget you'll want your skis to last. They're not that much heavier than chronics, the weight shouldn't make a difference. I'd so go for 174
is 174 a sweet spot for butters or can i go shorter and still get them
I has Domains. Literally have run them over and they still brand new. 11/10 would buy
IF you get the Chronics go for 171
If you get the Domains you can go for the 2 sizes around 171 which i think is 164 and 174.
I have Chronics and love them. I have damaged the top sheets but thats not too bad. I would recommend them a lot, they are also light. Im sure neither ski is bad
i had domains....... never again they last like half season
I have the domain in 169.
Things about them:
- True size is not 169 but 3-4cm longer
- Skis are really buttery and fun to skis but recommend them to a "light" skier. Not sure heavier skier will have as fun as i had with them because of their softness
- Mine last well. Top sheet ok
Domains are slightly more durable but mad heavy. the rivets add a ton of swing weight.
Sorry, miss clicked ok before i finish my answer.
- Keep in mind you'll have to take good care of the base. I didn't and it has damaged pretty quick.
- Weight is ok. I'm small guy, 172 for 64kg and never felt them too heavy.
- Strictly a park ski. Because of their softness, forget all mountain. Really good ski for park and really playful and funny on track, but forget the rest of the mountain.
I really loved them but as i'm not a strict park skiet, i'm aiming for a more all mountain ski like... Chronics ^^
Hope it helped.
Why would softness affect all mountain Would it not hold up?
