        Overall

        Overall, it's a great ski, great value, and really fun to use. Like i said, landing jumps (especially backwards), has never been so much fun. My first day on them, all i did was big, slow 180s because it felt so cool. There are probably better rail skis, but these are still very good on rails, nice and light. They kill the groomers, so i can still have fun skiing with my dad or kids who don't do park. If you're looking for an all mountain ski, with enough pop and steeze to thrown down in the park, consider these.

        If you took the time to read all that, +Reading Skills Karma.

        Performance

        Overall, great ski. Plenty of pop, seems to be very durable. When i first took them on groomers, i was expecting them to preform, and they did. I went really fast, did some quick carving and turns (you can still fell the gravity on turns, which i love). They held a pretty good edge on ice and were good in the manmade stuff or the little natural snow we get here in Jersey. I did ski a little fresh powder (like less than 6 inches) and they were fine in it. Pretty good on rails too. Never took them in the pipe yet, but I'm sure they are good there too. You can carve it up on the slopes, and kill in the park, these are great all mountain twins. I have mine mounted with Salmon Z10s, riding them at DIN of 6.

        Design

        It's certainly a well designed piece of equipment. As stated, the flex is great for riding everywhere, or at least everywhere on the east coast. I'm sure i can ski them in powder too, but i have never had the chance. They're like 85mm in the waist, asymmetrical sidecut and tips and tails. The flex, however, is symetrical I think. They are lightweight, i don't know the exact figures, and this helps on rails. Overall, it's a very stable ski, great for a one quiver setup like mine. I like the graphic, but i always consider that a bonus. I good graphic is always nice, but it really was not a buying factor for me. The bright orange bases and sidewalls are good for flagging your friends down, or getting noticed everytime you air something. You will soon be know as "the kid with the orange skis". I have the bases in the picture, and they are a little less yellow and red, both colors are more of an orange (stupid digi cameras and their white balance)!

        Value

        Got them for 250, since they were last years (this was written in 2009). I'd have to say that's a really good price for these skis, since I like them so much.

        Fit

        First off, I'm only around 120lbs and like 5'4'' or 5'5''. I ski about 50% mtn and 50% park.

        They are pretty stiff, stiffer than my brothers K2 Disorderlys. I can't
        really butter them too much, but heavier people probably can. The flex
        is great for groomers, and amazing for jumps. I have never had so much
        fun landing backwards, because I can feel my chronics put me right
        where i should be when i do. I can't real explain it well, you kind of
        have to fell it for yourself. Obviously, stiffer than invaders and
        anthems.

        Durability

        You probably always hear that these are "bombproof," and whoever said it is right. I've only been out on them 3 times (and what a fun 3 times they were), and i really don't have any topsheet chips, no base damage after rails. In contrast, my brothers DIsorderlys, which have been ridden the same amount of times have quite a few topsheet chips. People are still riding the really, really old Chronics and Chronic Wides! They seem like they will last quite a while.

        Overall

        can't stop, wont stop! i would recommend them to anyone, not just as a park ski but a fantastic all mountain ski as well. you wont regret getting your paws on a pair.if you have any other questions about them please feel free to send me a pm and i will try to respond a.s.a.p.

        Performance

        yes i absolutely love these skis. they can take everything i throw at them.

        Design

        they are the bubonic-chronic, absolute fire! 111/85/108, i wish they were perfectly symmetrical but i have not really noticed a big difference when riding switch. perfect park ski. not a fat ski but have enough girth to be very stable.

        Value

        450$ is a steal for a ski that will hold up to all the abuse you can throw at it. a comparable ski from a different company is going to to cost you more and you will most likely run into more durability issues sooner.

        Fit

        my 181's are mounted at +1 from dead center. they are my park ski. i prefer a longer ski. a 176 probably would be fine for me but its a matter of preference.

        Characteristics

        symmetrical flex. very responsive and they have tons of pop. they are a bit stiffer but i have no problem buttering with them( they pop out of butter like no other). amazing jump ski, i have yet to wash out with them.

        Durability

        i have yet to get any edge cracks or core shots. they chip a fair amount but thats completely cosmetic and can be taken care of by running a razor down the edge of where the top sheet meets the side wall and then sanded down a little bit. so bombproof, such a solid ski.

        Overall

        great ski for a good price, cant beat it all around ski.

        Performance

        This ski is amazing,
        Groomers: they do great you can make these cut like race skis. But once you get     them on ice you really got to work at it.
        Powder: I had the chronics in 4' of fresh pow, and they worked great, since they     are so wide they just floated on the sno.
        Park: The only gripe i got would have to be they are a little wide in the park for me     on the rails, but they ride the rails great. And the jumps they work amazing             because they are so stiff if you land on the tails they throw you right back.

        Design

        Personally i think they a re ugly but the graphics do grow on you though.

        Value

        I got a good deal on them through a promo code so it wasnt bad.

        Fit

        I got the 171 and i am 6'1" and weigh 170 pounds. i like the 171 but i should have gotten the 169, simply cause i like the shorter ski.

        Characteristics

        They have a great flex when you are ripping groomers they really cut, with a great flex. Coming off jumps they have a flex you can land a 100 footer no problem.

        Durability

        i think they are a sound ski, the bottoms are ungodly hard but, the tops are pretty soft you can take a good chunk out of the top if you are not careful.
