I'm looking to buy my first pair of skis! I've rented/demoed this season and was looking into buying Moment Sierra Skis which currently don't have any demos available. This past weekend, I had demoed the Rossi S90W's and really enjoyed riding them. Though this is my first season, I've gotten 14 days under my belt and have been skiing a variety of terrain, even going off-piste and down chutes. I'm not an incredibly fast skier and appreciate maneuverability when it comes to a pair of skis.
I compared specs of the two skis:
- Dimensions: 127-95-118
- Product Features: 2.2mm edge, 4001 Durasurf sintered base, Aspe/Pine wood core, Traditional camber, UHMW sidewalls, VDS dampening system
- Turn Radius for 170cm: 17.7m
- Structure: Fibro/Metal
- Core: Wood
- Reinforcement: Zicral
- Tip Shape: Freeride tip
- Shape: Mini Cap
- Dimensions 122-92-115
- Turn Radius for 170cm: 20m
I'm looking to buy 150's. Turn radii for 170 included to give you an idea of the difference.
Has anyone ridden both of these skis? Is it totally taboo to buy a pair of ski's you've never ridden? Any suggestions on similar skis to try out to get an idea of whether or not I'd like the Sierras? Thanks for all your input!
