Pros: Makes skiing easy! Cuts into ice, glides over groomers. Ungroomed runs not a problem, with greater ability to maintain higher speed with total contr
Cons: I haven't found any yet.
These skis practically ski by themselves. I had outgrown my previous skis, being unable to advance in skill level with solid medium level skis. These skis are longer than my last, coming between my eyes & forehead. With the flexibility and give of my Burnin' Luvs, I find I'm able to ski any surface, with easy, short radius turns. Hard packed or powder are much easier with these skis. I ski Colorado every year and these skis easily handle powder, piste and off-piste. They are not fat skis, however, I haven't had a problem on deep powder. Until I bought these skis, I had great difficulty on the diamonds and double diamonds. With these, I can do very steep runs without a problem. They hold on to the mountain when I need them to. I find I am able to ski at much greater speeds all the while maintaining complete control.
I live in New England and ski New Hampshire, Maine & Vermont quite frequently. These mountains are often sheets of ice. These Burnin' Luvs cut into the ice, no problem. With this cutting ability, I am able to make quick, little cuts while maintaining control. Not always an easy thing on ice. Of course, when it's extremely steep and complete ice, I exercise greater caution, as it is not unheard of for skiers to fly on the ice & end up on a tree.
I highly recommend these skis for skiers who have found their skills have outgrown their current skis. These skis are for advanced skiers, so although I feel they practically ski for me, you need to possess the skiing ability to fully maximize the use of these skis. I would not recommend these skis for a beginning skier.
