I live in Aus where we dont get a heap of powder, but already have the candide 2.0 for park and hardpack. Looking into a touing ski and love the bent chetler series and theyre light weight. Never need 120mm underfoot in Aus but it means it could be my overseas pow ski too. How good is the 100 in pow? Im 6'3 also so thinking id go the 188 100 or the 192 120
I haven't skied the 100, but i've heard good things. I've skied the 120 and although its a super fun ski in anything soft, its a pain on hardpack. Absolute pain. The 100 definitely overlaps with the 2.0 quite a bit, so it'd be annoying to have 2 skis that do such similar things, but i at least would not have the 120 as my 1 touring ski unless I was in a big snowfall area, but depends what you go touring for. If you'll only do it on pow days, it'd be great.
Cheers. Yeah they overlap between the 100 and the 2.0 is unnerving but there is a difference in my 2.0 is 178cm centre mount where as I’d get 188cm mounted further back for the 100. Heard good thing about the 120 tho and it’s so light for its size. I would nearly always be touring in either pow or slush/soft corn
I have the 100 and they are super light, poppy, and fun. I use them inbounds and have them center mounted, but you should either mount recommended or back a bit more for better pow skiing. The ski loves soft snow and in my experience is good in pow up to a foot (even center mounted, but it makes it harder). The 120 is obviously going to have more float in deep snow, but in corn and anything less than super deep pow you'd probably be happier on the 100.
Got the 100 last season. Rode alot of powder in interior British Columbia also used it touring and inbounds. Cant really say anything bad about it but haven't used it in Australia yet but i think it would be perfect for aussie/Nz conditions
Thanks for all the feedback but ended up going the 120's as the 100's seem too similar to the candides and more piste orientated than I need. Even tho Aus is often ice, mostly gonna use them for overseas, rare resort pow days and touring both in pow and spring corn which they seem good for so makes sense to me. Candides can do the rest.
