I love these skis and I if I ever need another pair I am most likely going to buy another. RMU is nothing but quality and it shows in the Gus. If you are looking for a durable park ski with the traditional super fun feel go for it.
The Gus performed very well. I am only an intermediate/advanced rider who is still learning the ways of the park but I was able to adjust to the ski quickly. It would rail turns yet it was very forgiving. It did all the things that I wanted it to do.
The ski has a traditional park ski sidecut and the older sandwich construction. This combination made it very solid. This ski like RMUs other skis shows off great construction that is durable and lively.
It was well worth the money. The gus unlike my other past park skis will last me more than one season. RMU makes their skis with quality materials for the base, core, and edges. They are constantly product testing which shows that they are committed to making skis to put smiles on peoples faces.
For me being as tall as I am i wish they made it longer than a 182, but a person of my size is a freak of nature. My build made the ski very "jibby" and someone of a smaller build will find them a bit stiffer of course. The one thing that stood out for its length is that the the ski has small tips making the running length longer which was a plus.
My ideal size for this ski would have been a 185.
The RMU Gus is a park/pipe ski so its flex would be about a medium. For me being 6'4" 170 lbs i found them softer of course. The ski is very stable underfoot making jumps and transitions a breeze yet the tips and tail remain pretty flexy making them very fun with presses on rails.
This ski is very responsive in hard carved turns and very poppy. I found them very similar to that of the old sandwich construction Armada T-Hall.
In the park for me being relatively new, the gus did remarkably well. Yes its got the typical edge cracks and some topsheet chipping but whos park skis dont. There were a handful of crazy falls and crashes that I had and I thought that when I would get up that my Gus would be trashed, but they didn't even have a scratch. I was blow away by how the bases weren't thrashed by how many rocks and random shit i hit.
