What skis are similar to salomon shoguns?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey, I'm an advanced skier but with an average knowledge of skis! I'm 6"1, 160lbs and I've been skiing 182 salomon shoguns for this season. I'm an aggresive skier and they have started splitting which is a pain to repair as they are a cap ski.

 

Basically I want a similar ski (early rise tips, 100/105 under foot, stiffish for a big mountain ski) which I can still tear around the groomers but importantly have fun off the pistes including hitting a few kickers/drops. I would get the same ski again if it weren't for not having side walls.

 

I've done quite a bit of research but there's just too much out there so help would be much appreciated!! I'm hoping to get new skis in the next couple of weeks if you guys are willing to help :) cheers

Thanks for the help guys, the atomic coax is something i had looked at. i had also looked at the atomic access as it seems similar (100 under foot not 105, and more rockered tip), what's the real difference in performance??

 

also had been looking at the 4frnt turbo, thinking I'll get one of these 3 skis, so anyone who knows a lot about the differences between these.... It would be awesome :)

You should look at Rossi S3, and Kastle MX98 if you've got the cash.  Both 98 underfoot, but worth checking out
