I snowboarded for 4 years and I have to say, this ski captures all the best features of snowboard design and incorporates them into one sick pair of skis. Now if we could just get every snowboarder out there on a pair of Lizzies they'd never have any reason to go back to their board.
Due to a lack of snow this year I've only used my Lizzies twice...once on a blue ice day, and once on a slush day. On ice, I was astounded how well these puppies skied. After one run of adjusting to the size I was able to carve super quick slalom turns back and forth like on a race ski. They are amazingly quick edge to edge and nimble for such a big ski. In slush, they killed it obviously. The flex pattern makes soft snow an absolute dream.
Awesome looking ski, no complaints at all.
I believe most people could easily have this as their one-quiver ski, so from that point of view I would have to say the value is excellent.
Softer than I'm used to, but they still hold an excellent edge at speed.
I noticed that my edges rusted up super fast, way faster than I've ever experienced on any of my previous skis. I don't know if that should be cause for concern or not, but a quick tune and they were fine.
Amazing ski for pow and park, also groomers. Just doesn't feel all that fast but it makes up for it with being super playful. You've probably heard before that this ski makes the mountain your play ground. Well it's true i'm 5'10" and 130lbs and had no problem buttering them and olliing onto things. Just turns everything into something fun to do. If you want a super fun ski this would be it not exactly a one ski quiver though. Having something more narrow and stiffer would be good to go along.
Very easy to ski right off the bat. Floated very well in the powder even with the reactors mounted in the front set of holes and everythng pushed forward as much as possible. The rear mountig position did not impress me at all. Theres a reason the skis are designed the same front and back, they're supposed to be mounted that way. Skiing switch felt very natural not as twitchy as other skis. This ski does it all feels great in park and can carve like a narrower ski. Just crud is a bit of work. Felt pretty slow maybe needs some more waxes in it.
Most other lizzies I have seen had a textured top sheet mine have smooth top sheet that is kind of flaking off from being flexed. Under that it's rough like the rest. The sidewalls honestly dont' seem to be the best theres a few weird looking spot but over all a very nice ski.
Awesome ski for what I paid deffinatly would buy another pair or a similar ski.
Very flexy and fun ski, super easy to butter and ollie, great in powder. Torsionaly stiff so it holds an edge very well.
So far very nicly, the topsheet is annoying but doesn't really matter at all.
