Can't decide on a ski... pls help
Hey, ive heard all these skis are great but i cannot decide on which one. I am 6 foot and 155lb. I ski in Australia so not a whole lot of pow. I'm after a freestyle all mountain ski that ill use about 30% park. I love skiing off piste and launching off natural terrain but still want to be able to carve groomed runs. What do we reckon? also something not too heavy and soft enough for butterss
PB&J it falls in the middle of that list widthwise and is fairly lightweight. I think it will charge harder than the ARV 96 which would be the only comparable weight ski.
Something to possibly consider is a k108 will be much less likely to punch through snow and thus more stable than a k96 on cliffs/drops...pb&j would be a good middle ground. With that said a k96 would also be much better in the park than a 108. Kinda depends on what you’re looking for.
From ON3P, it's a 186cm Jeffrey 108. It is park capable, but most of your time is still spent outside the park. Pretty similar situation to a lot of ON3P employees who ski the Jeffrey 108 everyday. If you have any questions on our skis, reach out to me direct. Happy to chat skis with you.
If you decide on the 2019 ARV 106 I do have a pair with attack 13s I’ll sell 380 + shipping. I have a pending response for them but as of now they are available. Ive used them 3 times. Basically brand new.
Get the 19/20 PBJ for the graphics alone.
Liberty helix 98 is dope, the flex breaks in after 10 days or so on hill and makes a really nice butter point on the noses. tails stay stiff though which keeps them super good for charging around, short enough turn radius to look good for the hot moms on piste and stable enough to drop shit for the weed dads off piste. the listed weight on the website was a little scary but theyre tapered and swing like a park ski
All times are Eastern (-5)
