This is a great all mountain ski for the freestyle skier who likes to ski the park, back country jumps and the rest of the mountain too. A one ski quiver or a good all mountain ski to base your quiver around.
This ski performs incredibly well in all aspects of skiing. In the larger size it can be a tad sluggish in the park and pipe. The smaller sizes don't float to well unless you are small.
The design is remarkable on this ski. the dimensions are perfect for the person who likes a stable platform in the park and/or a mid fat for the soft snow. A great all mountain ski for anybody especially those that prefer the freestyle aspect of skiing over free ride. If you tend to only ski powder you will need something bigger though.
These skis are a great value. They truly are a one ski quiver and cost about the same as other skis in their category.
Comes in a 166, 176 and 186. At 5'9" (176cm) the 186 is a nice all mountain ski for the powder and crud, but also able to ski the park. the 176 is a more freestyle oriented ski for back country jumps and park. the 166 is for midgets and pussies.
Fairly stiff for a freestyle ski, The flex gets progressively softer as you move toward the tip and tail away from underfoot. Provides a nice stable platform for skiing.
I have skied aproxmently 40-50 days on these skis in all sorts of conditions and have never had an edge crack delam or core shot so I would say they are a supper solid ski.
