        Overall

        i liekd the ski it was funbut was just not as durable as i thought it would be

        Performance

        these skis like to go strait and fast. on ice they are terrible but other than that they do fine everywhere. for jumps they are sick super stable and easy to spin (low swing wieght) because of the honey comb inserts in the tip and tail. pow they are super fun but hard to do slashes and stuff like that, like i said they like to go strait.

        Design

        graphics are dope but within 5 days the atomic written on the back was VERY scratched up. i also like how they were plane and simple.the feel of the ski is fucking dope! deffinatly try them out if you get the chance to.

        Value

        i got mine for 550 usd so fairly average price i deffinatly do not feel ripped off or anything like that.

        Fit

        i had the 192 and im 6 foot 2 and skinney as fuck so it kicked my ass the first timebut once you get used to it it is super dope!. the 192 is more of a charging ski and the 182 is more of a BC jib ski. i think i should have gone with the 182 because i was not really looking for a charing ski. but still fun none the less.

        Characteristics

        umm it was stiffer than i was expecting. it kinda seemed like this ski was confusedof what it wanted to be, a charging ski or a softer pow ski. under foot it is very stiff and the tips and tails are very soft due to the honey comb inserts.

        Durability

        i have had 5 days on mine and they a really chipped about 3 toonie size chipsfor those americans out there i have about 3 chips that are an inch in diameter.i was fairly careful with these skis because i wanted then to last me a long timeso i was very choked that they already look so beat for only being used 5 times.the side walls have also been quite significantly dented in and cracked.so i have sent mine in and exchanged for a different ski (bent chetler)
