Kartel 108 Softness scale?
Yes, I may be hopping on the ON3P band wagon soon but wanted to get this out of the way first. I've heard the 108s are super jibby and playful but what other skis are they compared too? I like some pretty flexy skis such as the old 108 underfoot SFB and the Nomad 105s so how do the kartels compare to them on that scale?
Depends on your strength/ weight. I'm 5'9 and 180 and find the 176 is pretty flexy and fun while the 181 requires more work. When in doubt go longer with 19oz glass.
My kartel 108 186 are pretty stiff, I'd rate them 7-7.5/10, while armada jj is like 5.5/10 , moment bibby 6.5/10, Moment Vice 7.5/10
Kung Fujas are noodles in comparison...
Billy Goats stiffer...
I am 96kg, 215lbs ish
I have 181 108s... and to me the flex is great everywhere except big icy moguls in Europe where they are too stiff....
Kartels will definitely be noticably stiffer than SFBs.
