OregonDeadMassif 189 is a little bigger and lighter than the 187 YLE. I like the looks of that shape.
patagonialukeLooks like a very interesting touring or 50/50 pow ski. From the looks of his instagram, Wiley's been skiing the Kye's/Uptrack series a lot this year. It's not the symmetrical pow jib ski that the YLE was but that rocker profile definitely puts the Massif in the more playful side of things compared to the Kye series, which is interesting cause the Arete and Col seem like more traditionally shaped skis. Wonder what the recommended mount points on those are.
sickskiActually Looking I think that Col is exactly the same as the KYE 110, it has the same dimensions/construction etc. The graphics are the one difference. If you look the col 181 says its 126x110x121, it matches the KYE 110. Heres a pic of my KYE 110s 181 cm that says the dimensions. If so I think this once again proves my point, the Col, Massif, and Arete is just the KYE series renamed.
OregonDeadYeah. Curious about where they are mounting these too.
I think you are probably right. Looks like they updated the KYE with a different core from the originals. The newly named skis seem unchanged from the most recent versions of the KYEs.
