        Overall

        Greatest park ski i've ever been on, love the 93 waist and symmetrical shape. Not only does it rip park, but it also shreds the mountain pretty well.

        Performance

        Very well, soooo durable.

        Design

        Looks great, RMU has sick graphics. The shape is awesome.



        Fit

        Only 178. I'm 5'8" 175 and i love the size, was a decent amount longer than previous park skis, but sure am glad i changed.

        Characteristics

        Super poppy! Love the flex most about this ski. Stiff enough for big jumps, soft enough for butters. Perfect.

        Durability

        Very very very well, few top sheet chips, ski is holding up great with 60+ days so far

        Overall

        holy shit i love these skis.  RMU is such a great new company, they are very forward thinking and arent afraid to try new things.  over the next few years, you will see more and more of these around summit county and branching out to CO and UT.  check out their website for more info on this company.

        Performance

        wow.  hands. down. best. park. ski. ive. been. on. 

        the first day i rode them i was just making soem turns and was blown away.  mounted dead center (thats recommended) they ski like a slalom ski.  soooo snappy.  they have incredible pop off jumps.  butter well.  very stable.

        Design

        graffics are a little bland, but thats not why i buy skis.  its kind of cool to have such a simple looking ski.

        Value

        RMU doesnt want to rip people off.  their prices are legit.  member prices on these skis is $350.  all who buy skis from them are members and also get discounts with other companies such as ESSI eyewear and HH of boulder

        Fit

        the skis only come in a 178.  dimensions are 124/93/124

        i would like a little longer ski for park, but i havent had issues with not being able to carry speed or being unstable...

        Characteristics

        the flex on these is sensational IMO.  a little stiff under the feet, a little buttery out on the tips and tails.  tthe ski is symmetrical so it has the same amount of flex either way.  i was liken the stiffness/softness to a ninthward le compte or a pipecleaner.  its not a noodle, but it bends pretty well.  they dont have a ton of camber

        Durability

        wow wow wow.  this is where RMUs testing has paid off.  they are using GIGANTIC teeth on their edges and a softer metal for edges.  results: your edges will NEVER crack or pull out.  they round over a little bit, but they will never tear out or break from impact.  also, they are using a racebase material that withstands core shot causing impacts.
