They are very heavy but powerful. They go bust through and bumps and chunky snow. I probably wouldnt want to hike with them though. Skiing switch was awful. I didnt expect them to be awesome at switch but I thought they would be alright but they arent. They are very stable at high speeds and off jumps. I didnt get a change to do any rails. I give them a 9/10
The top sheet is alright...
I got the used to 160 so yeah... good deal
I got the 182 and they were perfect for me
I think they are pretty stiff. Not too stiff but it got some getting used to
Seeing what Wiley Miller did with these in Eye Trip really put my mind at ease when making my purchase.Â I would say it is a great ski for the money no doubt.Â I got these for their all mountain versitility.Â They really do make a great all mountain ski.Â I am a South East skiier, and they still work for me.Â What i like most about them though, is if i go way up north (Canada) or out west, i can use these no matter what the conditions!Â A great every day ski for a mountain that gets a moderate to a lot of snow.Â
Just think about where you want to mount them, factory mounting position is about 9cm back from center, which is great for pow and all mountain, but if you wanna spin these, mount a little forward, i am glad i did!
These things are a blast.Â Extremely versitile.Â i have made them my all mountain ski because of the surprising groomer preformance.Â In 6 inches of fresh, they float just fine, very easy to turn and because of the early rise tip and tail they ski shorter as expected.Â
On groomers they did nothing but surprise me for how wide they are.Â I found they hold a good edge and transition edge to edge really well.
In the warm slush (spring skiing) these things are the best!Â the float right up and really push around the snow.Â In like "mashed potatos" snow they really give me a lot of confidence in snow that would normally suck up my 84 underfoot park ski.
Very busy.Â I love bright busy skis cuz they stand out.Â Designed by a tattoo artist in SLC Utah with a race car theme.
HIGH value.Â A lot of ski for your money.Â i havent seen these for more than $600 brand new.Â so compared to your other choices i would say it is a good contender when cost is a factor
They run a bit smaller than listed, aka 175 measures 173 tip to tail...Â I mounted mine up +2 cm from mark to ski swith better.
What i first noticed about these is how well they hold an edge on groomers for a pow ski.Â They are very stiff underfoot, and much much softer tip and tail.Â Minimal camber, and a tad bit of rocker make them great in slush and powder.
i am not that hard on these.... i wax em every time they hit snow and dont do rails on them.Â that being said after a month of riding they still look BRAND NEW.Â A few scratches on the base from rocks and trees but nothing i would ptex.
