Great value ski!!! Great quality and performance. They dominate the whole mountain and are very stable. If you want a buttery ski, these might not be your best bet. But if you're hitting 30+ foot jumps and want an all mountain ski you can rely on, get the chronic cryptonites.
This ski holds a great edge on groomers and can stomp jumps like no other ski. It won't chatter at high speeds and is wide enough (92 underfoot) to take it anywhere you need it to. They also have a lot of pop to em.
They have great graphics but the topsheet and sidewalls can ship somewhat easily. The bases are pretty durable from what I've seen so far.
I bought these on discount on evogear. They have remained the same for the past couple years so I went with the 09-10 pair because it was the same construction as the new cryptonites, but cheaper and better graphics (imo). These are a great value as they can be your park ski and your all mountain ski. They are decent in powder at best.
179 fits great since I'm 6 foot.
Pretty stiff ski that will definitely be stable on big jumps. Not very buttery.
The topsheet and sidewalls chip somewhat easily, but all skis will when you ride park.
