These skis are made for the park, whether or not you are hitting the jumps, jibbing anything, or sliding rails these are made for hot laps.
The graphic held over these Punx is a bit busy in that there is a lot going on between both skis. But the neon purple and yellow makes the skis pop and extremely vibrant on white fresh snow.
I've beaten my pair up via backyard setups, Midwest Ice, and terrain parks at Mad River Mountain, OH & Seven Springs Resort in PA. These things have lasted a beating and will continue to ride them til they fall apart.
They are extremely flexible and forgiving on hard falls/landings. Love messing around during the lines at larger resorts. Nose Stalls and tail-presses are enjoyable!
I find these skis much more enjoyable compared to all mountain/stiffer skis I've ridden on. In Midwest resorts that I have ridden I enjoy these a lot more then most skis.
I am 5'8 130 lbs and rode the 173 at true center in Ontario.
I grew into liking these skis for sure, I wasn't hot on them when I first got them but when I killed them last year I was disappointed.
PROS: Soft and light, you can butter over everything and makes it fun to ollie over ice balls. They are a light ski for sure, almost feels like nothing is there and it makes them fun in the park or jibbing around.
CONS: Too soft for ice and under speed. The ice is straight forward, I also had shit edges and I only had an issue with chatter on fairly hard almost ice like days. They are light because they use less materials, thin base and thinner edges. It takes nothing to get a core shot and they are too shallow to p-tex in most cases, edges are thin and like to crack (cracks aren't much of a problem though so I don't know why people care). Center mount makes them not so great out of the park, but you get used to it. There is a way or style of riding them that can make the experience extremely fun.
Because of the lack of thickness in materials the durability isn't really there, but in saying that I managed to make them last 2 seasons or about 50 days (1 season of wear on bases shown).
Oh and if you like gaps to rails or disasters, skip this ski it can't handle repetitive hard landings on rails, and don't get a base grind ever, it makes everything even thinner.
I'd ride them again
Fun, soft and light. Makes you ride the whole mountain like a park. Doesn't have amazing durability but it makes up for it with the fun aspect.
If you're looking for a Great park and pipe ski i would recommend this ski it will hold up very well.
Yes this ski can handle the the park and the pipe very well even if you want go hit big jumps this ski will hold its ground. and doing rails it will hold up very well.
I love how the ski looks it has a awesome design and i love this ski
it was a great deal for me i orderd the ski online and got it for $400 so great deal.
For the Punx I am 5'5 so the 155 fit me well and the sizes for the ski are perfect they come in 155 , 164 , 173 , 182
The core strengths of the Punx include a 100% symmetrical shape, which maximizes ski control – whether performing a regular or switch landing – its low weight, which makes fast spins easier, and a high-grade wood core, which makes the ski highly robust and durable.
Very well for me because im not too good i can do anything insane but it held up very well for me.
