I know the P90's carve well, but the construction of the Pilgrims makes me think they hold a better edge. Has anyone skied both? Also, how are the Pilgrims on switch?
(And In case someone wants to help me pick new skis...)
I'm getting some up-to-date boards this year. I live on the East Coast with lots of ice and 6'2" at 180lbs, about 180 on a ski. I'm getting into amateur slalom but fun is still my focus: I want a twin tip, all-mountain ski. I don't care about winning, just being competitive. I play on trails and dip into the trees, so some carving skis with powder ability would be ideal. Typical day: 10% park, no rails or boxes (I really want to learn to do a hand drag, but probably not possible on a carving ski)
Also, I like the idea of a tapered tail and camber with rocker design. From what I've read, I don't want capped skis.
- Maximum 92 waist
- Functional twin tips
- Good carvers
- Slalom friendly, but obviously not purpose built
- Some playability (I'd love some butter zone but I'll wait for my second pair for that.)
Line: Chronics - [not the blend] I love the '12 art. (Why are they ABS/sidewall and not capped?)
Armada: Alpha 1
Triumph - any know how well these carve and go switch?
Let me know if I'm barking up the wrong trees with the P90 and pilgrim. All feedback is greatly appreciated!
