All-Mountain Twin Recommendations?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I'm 6'0" and about 185lbs, and I'm looking for a good pair of all-mountain twins.I skied on some Atomic Bent Chetler as well as Crimson Ti's as demos this season, and really liked both.  So any recommendations for things similar? and bindings as well?

The K2 Kung Fujas is a very good, ski has been massively popular this year, so may be a little difficult to get hold of. Uber soft and jibbery. If you want a ski thats a little stiffer, maybe go towards a Line Prophet 100 or 90 (100mm and 90mm underfoot), not stiff but you won't really find many stiff twin tips.

 

How much are you skiing off piste or in the powder? If 75%+ maybe go a little fatter up towards 110-115?

Do you ski switch or in the park?  If not, why do you want an all-mountain twin?  Why limit yourself?

Agree with the Prophet, I'd go with the 90 unless you're going to be skiing off piste like 95% of the time

I agree with Noodler, unless you want to hit park or back country freestyle, you lose performance with a twin tip. I also think with a twin tip your more or less limited to soft skis that aren't going to perform to the same level when you push them.

Yes with twins you lose some performance on groomers but may or may not gain performance elsewhere.....depending on what you are looking for.  I generally prefer a slight twin for every day because I find it easier to release the tails.  Groomer performance is basically meaningless as I they are just a way to get from one spot worth skiing to another spot worth skiing.....ymmv 

 

For example...I found the P-100 to be a much better ski than the Mythic...for me in almost every condition except groomers and really tight bumps........

I think the Icelantic Pilgrim would be worth considering too.

Yea you may not gain performance. More of the point I wanted to make is that, unless you want to ride switch there is no need to restrict yourself to a twin tip.
