Overall a great ski for skier who does everything but the park. They did well almost everywhere I took them and really surprised me with their groomer performance. If it weren't for the durability ( which may have been just my pair) they would have gotten an easy 8.
The performance was fantastic. The ski was stiff enough and damp enough that I could not find a speed limit. It still had enough liveliness to be enjoyable on groomers though. On the groomers I found it to carve very well for its width. It carved medium sized turns on almost any snow condition and any speed above a slow crawl. It struggled to hold on broiler plate but I was tolerable if you drove your tips and had well tuned edges.
I only had this ski in the powder and chop once. The snow wasn't particularly light or heavy and wasn't the slightest bit sticky. There were about 8 inches. In wide open trails the ski could make any size turn with ease. It needed to get going a little bit before it would plane well. It was very fun in the trees even though it has a stiffer flex and no rocker.
In the chopped snow the ski was a dream. It didn't get deflected at all and drove through everything at any speed. This was the skis strong suit in my opinion.
This ski is a little too stiff and a little to heavy for the park. It was fine with lazy 3's off jumps but was a handful on rails. This might be due to the fact that my edges weren't detuned and I was used to lighter skis.
In the bumps this ski is manageable but a lot of work due to the size and stiffness.
This ski has the dimensions as follows. 137-108-131 r=23. The ski also features some sort of multi radius but I didn't notice anything that I could relate to this. There is no rocker but the tip and tail are larger than normal. The ski is close to a symmetrical shape. I mounted at plus 4.5 cm from recommended which is 4.5 cm from true center. This ski also features two layers of titanal.
Considering I paid $150 shipped from backcountry I consider this a steal. Had I paid msrp I may be a little disappointed.
I got the ski in a 191 and being 6 foot 5 inches tall, 260 lbs, and a "type III+" skier found that this length was fine but a 198ish ski would be ideal for me. That being said I didn't find the 191 to lack anywhere due to the length I just like a longer ski. The ski measures out to a 188.5 with a straight tape pull tip to tail with no sag.
For me I thought the flex was absolutely perfect. The ski is probably a medium-stiff stiffness. It was stiff enough where I couldn't get it too wash out even on bigger jumps/drops but it was soft enough to be very easy to ski.
I skied these skis for 8 days. The first seven days were mostly spent on easy groomers with family with the exception of a few park laps and some steeper trails. On the 8th day was the powder day. I skied them for 3 hours before the ski delamed under foot making a turn in the woods. I am disappointed in the durability on my pair but I am getting them warrantied to see if it was a defect or just a bad ski. The bases and top sheet are top notch though.
