Bought these skis last autumn for -50%. I didn't know what to expect , but I knew that these skis were black diamond's most playful skis. When I opened the package I was excited. They looked pretty rad and different from others. Shape is pretty cool. Tip is wide and rockered, which provides great flotation, but skinnier center and not so rockered tail provide good grip on harder snow. Small camber make ski poppy and also better on hard pack. Awesome in every condition and even in park you can have tons of fun because these skis are so surfy and flex is soft and buttery.
