so overall:-good for jibs-dec for small and medium jumps-fun to play around with-soft but not too noodley-great buy if your strapped on cash-not good for big jumps or backseat landings
The Invaders preformed well for me, my edges were so dull that it was impossible to hold an edge on ice but besides that they preformed well. probably a good jib and urban ski. i usualy only hit medium and small jumps a couple large ones and they did pretty well but i do mostly jibs so i wouldnt recomend these to someone doing mostly or only jumps
the look is awesome, some funny pics on them and gives you somethin to look at on the way up the chairlif, and they were real fun to play around with
probably one of the best things about this ski is the price, 300 brand new and now you gan get them for under 200 new if you look around enough
i should have gotten 171s i got 161s but as long as you get a good size they should be good
The invaders are really buttery, i bought them a little too small and would occasionally butter all the way out of really backseat landings but besides that there amazing for butters. if you weigh alot i probably wouldnt recomend these just because they would be so soft for you.
the old invaders seemed to have a bad rep for falling apart but i wasnt nice to my skis and they held up pretty good. a couple chips off the sides but otherwise in good condition
The flex is perfect for park and the performance of this ski is just incredible 100% symetrical so super good for riding switch.
the graphics are just so sick the pic does'nt do them justice you take the skis out of the box and theyr'e blindingly bright looks as if the colours are radioactive.(look out for Bert Renolds just below the binding)
you get a whole lot of ski for $300 normaly i 100% symetrical ski would be $100 more like the volkl wall etc
im 6,0" and usualy use around 165cm for park but the 171 is perfect for me.
The 'butter zone' on these skis is incredible you can just lean into and the skis do all the work for you. Perfect Butters = line invaders. also work well on the entire mountain took them into pow but i wouldn't recommend it
I Live in england so im mainly on dry slopes which is like skiing on metal mostly all over skis i have had disintergrate after being on them but the invaders are like indestructable
