        First things first, this ski is strictly a park ski. Do not expect it to be able to handle hard pack off piste, or even groomers for that matter.

        I first rode the ski on Killington opening day in November, 2012 and actually thought I had forgotten how to ski due to the skis inability to carve and handle on the icy hard pack. The ski does not have a real flex pattern and cannot really handle bumps or any east coast liftline terrain, and certainly not powder with the 76 waist.

        You can, however, expect the ski to destroy rails. The skis are so light, and whippy, and have early rise tips so clearing the rail as you come around for that 360 switchup is a breeze. I legitimately felt like i could get an extra 180 on spins out these things are so light.
        Heres the catch if youre a rail rat: Since the ski really lacks in the category of plain skiing, I found actually getting to rails and lining up for the perfectly executed trick to be very challenging. Likewise, icy takeoffs and landings of jumps and rails was downright terrifying.

        The quality of the ski is reflected in the low price. I only managed to ski about 3 days on these skis but they are already showing some of the most extreme damage I have ever seen. Many edge cracks which will develop into tear outs. The edge is pulling out of the tip of the ski which is causing the ski to delaminate. If you are picky about topsheet chips, these topsheets are not much more durable than paper.
