Pros: Fast, solid, predictable, stable
Cons: No short turns, no relaxing
This ski is for strong, hardcore skiers only. With eyes closed you would believe you were holding a pair of 225 competion downhill racers from '90. Don't be fooled. The wide body and shorter length float through powder and carve turns better than my 225's could have ever imagined. The torsional stiffness and weight blast through crud like a knife in soft butter. In the old days length ment stability, these skiis have so much surface area combined with stiffness (two sheets of metal), that sticking a 40 foot air, or straightlining a chute is effortless. Again, don't be fooled, If you are not ready to concentrate and work for every inch of every turn, then find yourself something more foregiving. This ski is designed for the best of the best when they are on their game.
