Pros: Excellent on piste performance with great edge hold, does well in bumps and moderate powder. Good one quiver ski for the advanced intermediate
Cons: Not fat enough for some people
I've demoed these on two different occassions under vastly different conditions. In (Rockies) icy conditions, they did better than anything else I tried and were a lot of fun with their impressive ability to hold an edge. They're easy to ski and can really take high speeds and instill confidence. They are a surprising contender in the moguls and turning is easy. Makes skiing the bumps fun again for this 37yo. If I had the pleasure of having a multi-ski quiver, I can still see these being a top pick for most conditions besides major powder. I'm 6'0" and 185lbs and ski the 176 84 FWIW.
