These skis are great for large jumps. They have the flex that'll keep you from buttering out and the stability to trust em at that speed. Super light and super responsive so you can really pull out your bag of tricks and push yourself. They'll stomp anything you have the guts to throw on em.Definitely not a beginners park ski or a ski for a dedicated jibber.
When I bought these I was looking for a stiff park ski cause I was tired of wheelie-ing out of landing on bigger jumps. These skis are so solid they pretty much stomp landings for you, but on the flip-side, when you screw up they aren't very forgiving and can beat you up pretty good if you land forward/backseat. They are VERY VERY VERY light, absolutely the lightest ski I've ever picked up by far. That makes them ridiculously easy to spin and lift on to rails and stuff, and the light weight combined with the stiffness of the ski makes these things very responsive and precise.I'm still getting used to skiing these switch because you need to put a lot of pressure on them in order to flex and carve properly instead of washing out the tips. Also its easy to get bucked in rough snow because of the super narrow tail and stiff flex.I don't ski pipe very much, but these send me out way farther than I'm comfortable with...
Cool topcoat, the finish highlights the design by combining matte and gloss effects
I got em for $400 which is about standard for a park specific ski. But they performed well so I'd say they were a good value
Coreupt said they were 173, but they measured out at 171. Not a huge difference.
These are about as stiff as a park ski gets, which is what you'd expect from a pipe dedicated ski like this. The flex is completely semetrical. Im 150lbs and they're right on the border of being too stiff for me.They're definitely not a buttery park ski but they're not supposed to be
The topcoat is extremely durable: it won't chip at all, but it does still scratch.The bases and edges are fairly soft though. I don't hit rails a ton so the edges are gonna hold up fine for me, but if you're the next b-dog you might have a problem
