ski_salmon69I ride my on3ps in the moguls and I gotta bend my knees a lot but then you kinda get thrown into the turn naturally. Exaggerating your movements is just the reality of having heavy skis in the bumps but it can still be fun- it just pushes you to go faster so you’re more of straightening.
ReturnToMonkeyON3Ps, at least all the ones I've ridden, (Kartels, Magnus, Wrens) have pretty light swing weight in my opinion. I rode 171-181 definitely not 190... That has a lot to do with it especially in tight bumps.
ski_salmon69ya that’s definitely true, On3ps are heavy but they put the weight in the right place, but you gotta stay centered if you wanna control it in my experience. But ya if you can maintain good form they’re actually pretty good in the moguls
Jemspersonally I can't ski moguls for shit on my Jeff 108s, maybe im just ass at skiing moguls which is probably true but at the same time they're a nightmare to maneuver in tight spaces. I thought "hurr durr they're just big Magnuses they'll be super agile" but nah.
JezzaWhenever I ride my outsiders in bumps I always end up launching over the tops of bumps and making some turns in between jumps instead of skiing traditional zipper lines. Those skis are just too damn fun with the pop they have and the confidence they give you at speed. I've always found the outsiders to be difficult to ride smoothly at slow speeds because of the long turning radius, stiffness, and weight, but once you start charging fast they're so confident with how they react because there's hardly any tip or tail edge to catch on stuff and the edge underfoot is sufficient enough for high speed maneuvers. Whenever I wanna go make quick turns I ride something with camber and less weight, but I sure as hell don't have as much fun as when I'm riding the outsiders
