      • Review:

        Designed as a park & pipe ski, at 90mm underfoot it really falls more into the newer trend towards giving all-mountain skis twin tips. Quite a lot softer than your average all-mountain ski, it is still really good fun in the park, although possibly better suited to smaller features than stomping massive jumps and jibs. While I have literally zero pipe experience, the relatively low swing weight, combined with the soft, buttery feel in the tip and tail makes it a good ski for its apparent design purpose.

        Outside of the PnP, the Oblivion is similarly competent in all areas. It can grab an edge, and only really struggles on icy hard pack (and the list of skis that don't isn't that long). At 181 @ 90mm, it's not ideal for the deeper stuff, but can hold its own reasonably well, and means it is capable of running bumps and carving nicely on groomers. In summary, a "jack of all trades, master of none" type of ski that's a lot of fun no matter where you want to take it on the mountain, and a fantastic one-ski-quiver option.

        Unfortunately I don't think they make it anymore :(
