        Overall

        Only bad things I have to say would be the 1. Lack of longer sizes2. Getting a little softer over time3. The bases needed a little more attention than park skis I have had in the past. they were not slow or anything but seemed to dry out quicker than my other skis.

        Performance

        These skis can rail groomers straight to the park and then dominate in the park. Light and symmetrical they kill almost all aspects from jumps to rails. I found them to be a very good ski for doing everything in the park. Rails where a breeze and keeping composure in the air was a piece of cake. Out of the park they held up decently. They got bucked around by crud a little and dive like submarines in deeper snow but if you are a stronger skier than you can easily handle it. For people who ski over 70% park this would be the only ski you need. They also carved surprisingly well (almost felt like GS skis for the first week I had them until the edges dulled).

        Design

        Best graphics I have ever had on a ski. I never buy things based on look but these are beautiful which is also the case with most Icelantic Designs. Specs: are size 180 118-88-1186.52lbs20m radius

        Value

        Got them on Proform so I felt very fortunate. Would have had no problem spending full price on them.

        Fit

        I wish they came in a 185 0r 186 but the 180 gave me all the length I needed for park.

        Characteristics

        When I first got these skis they came out as a medium to stiffer flex. By the end of the season I would have to consider them a more Medium Soft flex. They definitely broke in a little. The flex is nice and even, you don't wash out on any jumps under 50 feet and you could also butter very well. I love my stiff skis but these added a nice change to my quiver.

        Durability

        At the end of long season with abuse from both park, rocks, and ski instructing the only thing wrong with them is minor topsheet chipping and one edge crack. I was on these skis more than any other ski in my quiver this year due to our crappy snow year and they held up amazingly.
