shin-bangFor me it’s the materials.
bamboo core- which is super stompy, I won’t go back to other woods. Super damp. Always has that bulldozer feel.
2.5 by 2.5 edges + 1.8mm bases on ALL their skis. I’ve had the shop tech complain about how hard my bases are. It takes some effort to get a good base sand/grind. Which means the bases are tough and last so much longer than other brands I’ve ridden. Thicker edges and bases than what most people are on. Which also means Longer tuning life and more durability. Significantly less scratching and core shots compared to my 4frnts, lines, etc
3/4 edge wrap: I’ve seen too many full edge wrap tips get blown up. 3/4 is the way imo.
rocker: I like a ski with a lot of rocker. Love my caylors.
full sidewall: some companies use a a part semi cap part sidewall. Not a fan of it but full sidewall usually comes with more topsheet chips at the tips. But it I like the ride of full sidewalled skis better. Personal preference.
those are the main points that have gotten me hooked on on3p, and keep me hooked. Killer customer service. Get on a pair and thank me later.
Happy to see other people still rocking Caylors, probably still my favorite skis I own at the moment
What year are yours?
