        Overall

        Overall I'd give the ski a 9.5 because it could be a little lighter without compromising much flex.

        Performance

        Seems like a great one ski quiver for my usage out west. We get lots of dense powder and soft snow and this ski has no problem going from ice packed groomers to thigh high bowls. Even holds their own in the park with minimal wear and tear to show for it.

        Value

        Salomon tends to be expensive luckily I got these pair through somebody who had won them in a raffle.

        Fit

        At 6'4 210lbs I opted to go for the 185 length and it skis great. Really easy to maneuver with minimal work but its still wide and long enough to withstand high speeds and big jumps.

        Characteristics

        Great flex for an all mountain ski. Really stiff in the waist but forgiving in the tip and tail with its slight rocker shape. Haven't had any real deep days but in 30-40cms the ski had perfect flex.

        Durability

        Top sheets are really solid with almost no chipping and small cosmetic scratches. Bases and edges are still holding up well but we'll see as the season progresses.

        Overall

        good ski, I'd recommend them.

        hell, I'd buy them if I found them cheap enough

        rad park ski, don't buy them for much else.....go fatter.

        Performance

        it held up to the fresh just fine. considering it is 128-87-115 I thought I'd sink right away, but the rocker helped keep me on top. The Lord's killed in the park too, they were super light , and spun like a champ.





        Design

        they were squirrely going switch, because of the rockered tip.




        Value

        they were just a demo, but I'm hoping they'll be cheap.

        Fit

        I rode the 178, they seemed fine for me. my other park skis are 175.

        Characteristics

        stiff enough to have good pop and soft enough for some good butters... And no unwanted wash-out



        Durability

        they did chip a bit on the sidewall...
