I love these skis. They are light, fat, and fun, and not overly priced. Durable from what I've felt, and turny enough for anyone to rip on. Can't wait for the PNW to bring on the powder so that I can test these babies out to their full potential.
This ski was a great ski. It turns well, it pops well, and it blasts through whatever I could find. It wasn't the best day for testing it, but I would have skied them more if not for fear of scratching them.
Landing switch on these babies is amazingly fun. My chronic wides compared to these was like comparing a kayak to a cruise ship in terms of stability (exaggerating of course). It was so fluid and when I touched down there was no falling over or wobbling at all, I was rock solid.
98 mm underfoot provided a perfect platform to ski with. I could go edge to edge easily enough without sacrificing any charging ability. The graphics aren't the nicest...but who cares about graphics? The ski makes up for it.
The tail turned up so much didn't really feel any different than a normal twin, but I suppose it works well in powder. I need to try that though.
I got these for $400 on a labor day weekend sale. The retail is around $700...but they're worth it. Not a steal, but definitely not overpriced.
At 177 cm, they fit me very, very well. I've never had skis taller than me before, and these are great. Doesn't provide too much swing weight either for spins.
I'm 5'8, 135 lbs. and they were definitely not super easy to butter, but you could do it if you really leaned into it. They're really nice for just all around skiing, however. Easy to flex into a turn, and to keep the flex going.
I've only skied them for about 3.5 hours, so I can't really say a LOT about it...but I can safely say that every second on these skis have been fun.
The topsheet will get chipped, like any ski, but as of now there is only a tiny 3 mm strip that has been peeled off because of skis clunking together. A tiny adjustment in stance will fix that.
