2013 Stockli Laser WC GS Ski

Posted

Pros: Speed, suspension, and handling

Cons: MSRP

The 2013 Stockli FIS GS is the most special race ski that I've ever skied on...

 

...and I do own a pair of 180s with red Tyrolia FFPs and RDX pates in my current quiver.

 

Truth be told, I have never clocked the skis against the likes from other brands. I own three pairs of GS skis and demoed a few other ones from other makers. There are other good GS skis that I'm familiar with and trust. I train with and run gates, etc...I probably have way more mileage on those other skis than the Stockli GS's. Having said that, every time I'm on these skis, I feel like a million bucks.  

 

The snow feedback I get is amazing in the way they dance around and strike the balance between lively and damp. They feel light and nimble, yet solid and stable when it needs to be. The flex is not too stiff or soft. It feels just right. They love to go fast and got uncanny edge hold through turns. That's just the way they came. They come tuned the way all race skis should. They look classy and also stylish in their unique, austere way.

 

If you have the means, I highly recommend picking some up.

Ski Review: Stockli continue to amaze me, I have not used a ski of theirs that doesn’t make me shake my head and laugh in disbelief at what they can build into a ski. The 2012 FIS GS, as with their DH and SG models, is a balls out thoroughbred that begs to be driven into the snow with absolute authority from the skier, it will NOT tolerate anything less than you sticking to your guns and obliging. For the strongest of skiers who seek a ski that wants to be worked , and if you are the skier type who is up for pushing it with  strong technical and speed capabilities, this or more to the point, all of the above, are skis you should look towards. As with many Stockli, they do demand more input than many other skis, but I really like that in a ski and find it a challenge with great rewards. They don’t care for half-arsed turn initiation or recreational speeds. I was fortunate enough to enjoy the FIS GS in Aspen for the month of January this year, although the snow was a little later than usual in its arrival, it did provide some really firm conditions, and these things were brilliant. Speed capabilities were very high, ski tracks GPS reading to 87 mph at Aspen Highlands and the ski felt absolutely planted, even in longer drawn out Super G size turns. The skis have that lovely feel underfoot when you get off a lift and get going onto a run and are picking up rude amounts of speed while you’re still sorting out your fiddly Leki Clip-On grips, and encourage you to just let them rail and run…Brilliant !

They are now sitting across from me in my office at home, waiting for our Australian Season 3 months away…neither of us can wait !!!!!!!!!!!
