This would be a perfect 10 ski in my opinion, if it did not have the durability issues. Killer feel, pop and LOW weight.
Great performance, killer idea for a park ski. just needs improvement in some areas.
You either love or hate the look of these skis. They are different colors in different sizes, but i find the 178's sick. The bamboo construction makes for a really light weight ski, which is incredible.
Decent value, but need to step it up in durability.
I'm 6' 150#'s, and I got the largest size, the 178. They are perfect for me for park skiing, which is all I use them for. I have them center mounted and they are so nice to switch riding as well as pop switch. And the swing weight is so low.
However anyone larger then me might be too big for this ski.
VERY soft flex. These are skis I got to replace my old park skis, which were original fujatives, the super soft ones. The laroses are a bit softer, but theres way more to it then that. With the bamboo core, and optional bamboo side walls, they are super poppy. I really love the snap the ski has to it, makes just riding so much fun.
Not a very durable ski at all sadly. The bamboo construction makes it very venerable to damage. You can also have p-tex or bamboo side walls on the 178's, and the bamboo is a bad choice. It looks sick as fuck and is way light, but once you damage it, you cant really do much for it. Plus the wood kinda splinters. Same thing with the core. The top sheet is very then, then it goes right to bamboo. once you start tearing the top sheet off(and you will) the wood gets exposed and can splinter.
i may be exaggerating that a bit, because they are still in good condition, after about 50 days or so. However I don't do many rials or boxes, just snow features. So i really dont know about edge durability.
They also Come with a 3 year warranty, and do seem very fair about it. So if your shit does start to fall apart, I'm sure you will get hooked up.
A very fun and light ski for ripping around the whole hill with. Mounted at recommend (-2.5cm from dead center) made for easy switch skiing as well. The swing weight it very low too.
Topsheet needs to change for next season though because it is way too brittle to be on a park ski.
I really like this ski actually and I was surprised I would because of the very forward mounting pattern in a lightly shorter ski then I'm used to riding. The beauty of them are in the weight, or absence of actually. Super light skis and very easy to throw around and jump with. I will edit this when I get a few more days on em.
Graphic is a little weak IMO. Going for some sort of abstractness but it doesnt really do it for me.
Super light feel to them which is very noticeable when riding (i'm used to riding heavy/stiffer skis).
I can't complain for the price I got them for :)
I normally ride 172cm Blends and 172cm Mad-Trix and the 171 Larose pro mounted at recommended fit right in sizing wise. It did run shorter though in terms of length compared to my 172 Blends (which were 5 cm longer, but only listed as 1cm longer). So they might run a touch short.
The ski is a lot stiffer in the tail then the nose which makes for a difference ride. I touch on the stiff side in general.
Structurally, the skis seem to be solid so far. No delam, broken edges, or crack as of yet but I will update this if problems arise.
The topsheet is very weak though and chips super easy. After only a couple days riding on them, the edges of the topsheet were chipping off at a fast rate. Not sure yet if it will stop or what will be effected by it but the topsheet is crap/cheap.
