Great ski, would recomend to anyone who can actually ski. Park rats look elsewhere, this probably isnt what you want. Skis like the volkl gotama if that helps at all.
These perform top line in everything. In powder, obviously they thrive, the shallow sidecut and slight camber gives them a really surfy feel, and they arent hooky like my chronics. They hold an edge on ice better than anything else Ive used, really exceptional. In chop they track well, you just have to hold an edge with their girth. These skis perform better than any other ive ever skied, hands down. I can't think of another way to put it really. much better than scratch bcs, atomic pimps, line prophet 100s. The only advisory I would put on is they ski better the steeper and harder you push them. If you ski a resort without too much vertical, get a softer flexing ski with reverse camber probably. They don't just float on the flat and deep. Not as much of a freestyle powder ski as theyre heavy and I have them mounted at midsole, so not great switch in powder, but Im sure that could be solved by mounting them further up.
Cool graphic, topsheet chipped pretty easily, but other than that I can't think of anything out of the ordinary (unless you consider there not being a squared off tail, which some descriptions said there was, but it didnt really matter, skins atatched fine) shallow sidecut makes for good powder performance.
I got them on pro-form, a bit on the expensive side but definitely worth it, these are top quality skis, don't be fooled by the independent newschool company, they make the best product out there.
182 was perfect for me, quick and versatile in trees, but big enough to stomp drops with ease. I'm 5'9 155 by the way, athletic build. they do ski fairly short though, if i didnt do so many trees I'd go with 189.
Very stiff ski at 182, I heard the shorter lengths may have a softer flex, but this is definitely a stable charging ski, no doubt about it.
the skis themselves seem great, only have 30 or so days on them, topsheet chipped pretty drastically, but whatever, i think its because i hate snow on top of my skis so I scrape it off constantly.
