TheWeazWhat exactly are you trying to figure out about it?
I have two pairs of 185s, one with kingpins and one with jesters, both mounted at -5 from center. Been skiing it in pretty much every condition you could encounter this year. Working on trying to get some 191s for going fast. Ask away, I’ll give ya my best answer
Gnar_Shralp406Perfect! How do they ride at the -5? Have you tried a pair at the recommended mount point to compare? I ski a 190 Caravan SB110 currently, but I'm unsure if I want to go down to the 185 for the enforcer. Basically, I'm afraid I'll be wishing I had more length. I kinda dought I'll ever wish I had less.
TheWeazI chose -5 because that’s typically around where I like my skis mounted, I usually go 3 to 5 back for pow skis depending on how I want to ski them. Didn’t ride them at recommended so I can’t comment on the comparison.
Im pretty short, at around 5’5, the only reason I want a set of 191s is because i want the bigger turn radius, I’ll probably mount those at -3 or 4.
Depending on your height I wouldn’t worry about going for the 191, they have a decent amount of splay and don’t feel as long as they are. Also based on the blister review it seems like they’re a little short so the 191 might actually be a 188 or 189.
For refference my friend who is about 6’2 has 185 110s as his touring ski and finds them a bit short, he has the enforcer pro for inbounds and says its definitely more stable but not cumbersome
TheWeazAt your height I would be leaning a lot more towards the 91s, unless you ski a lot of tight east coast trees.
Gnar_Shralp406No tight east coast trees. Just tight Bridger Bowl lines lol. Thanks for all the help man, super appreciated.
TheWeazUnless your trying to hop turn down the saber slice I don’t think many lines at bridger are tight by east coast standards. I’d be happy to run 190 skis there.
Disclaimer: haven’t skied briger in a couple years and mostly skied the upper mountain, I’m sure there are tight lines there, but just go straighter and faster thats what big skis are for.
