Pros: I ski that belies it's dimensions
The MX88 is arguably one of THE best skis on the market. There are few skis that I have skied over the years, and I have skied into the high hundreds, that I have immediately said "Wow, these skis are truly special". The MX88 at 88mm underfoot, can feel as nimble as any 80mm ski and depending on conditions as wide as most 90+ wide skis. The whole MX line skis very well and as solid and nimble as any performance ski out there yet as you give them the gas, they turn up their game to meet the needs of the skier and conditions. If Porsche made skis, they would be Kastles. The MX line, is akin to the 911 series and the MX88 is the 911 Turbo, a car that can be as comfortable as a grocery getter to a machine that can be driven on the track all day.
Is the MX88 worthy of all the accolades it has been getting. Absolutely.
