I bought this ski to take on the pow but was very surprised at their agility on the groomers. They have become my entire quiver and I haven't found myself in any situation wishing for my other skis - including park.
The swing weight is lower than I had imagined as well.
If you charge pow, crud, groomers and lap the park in between this ski is for you.
If you ride aggressively you won't be let down. If you are mellow and are looking for a butter noodle go with the lizzies or ARV's.
Again I was surprised by the agility of these skis. I've only been on groomers with them and have absolutely no complaints.
I come from a racing background and these skis can edge hard!
The graphics are amazing, leave it to schmies - and they really aren't that fat.
They are also surprisingly light. They feel lighter than my public enemies. (unmounted)
I got them cheap on the innerweb but I would have definitely paid retail value for this ski.
I'm just over 6' and weigh about 190lbs. I bought the 179's. They run about 182-183 but due to the "mini-camber" They physically run closer to 130cm - 140cm.
When I first put them on, they felt really short on the snow.
I had them mounted at "core-center" or +8. True center is closer to +15 or +16 on these skis.
The Tips are very soft. The tails are quite stiff. I'd say stiffer than the Public Enemy.
The soft tips bust crud and keep you up. The stiff core really lets you lay down some GS carves. Especially on the groomers.
NOTE: I was surprised at the agility of these skis. Even when slashing short radius through moguls or trees.
I imagine like any K2 product they are fairly bombproof. New offset rivet design looks great but makes me wonder...
I've had alot of skis delam. The sandwich construction mixed with the rivets is very durable.
As with any sandwiched ski, the edges of the top sheet chip. This compliments the look of the graphic :)
