Willing to try, so help me

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Ok,  was stubborn and making fun of rockered skis last season. This was mainly because I saw the extreme rockered skis, which i still think may be a bit over the top. Anyway, I'm due a new pair of skis, my K2 public enemies have seen too many seasons and have died.

So, what's a good, top level all mountain rockered ski. I'm a ski instructor, although do little of that now (occasional private) and mainly ski for myself. 

I live in switzerland, so nothing will be cheap.

I ski about 178cm length, which is by my eyebrows, and 85mm width. I love all conditions, powder, crud, ice, bumps, I like to ski hard and ski anything. I'm often in Portes du Soleil, or Villars, if you know the swiss resorts. My backyard is Leysin.

For a ski instructor I know little about skis. When I find a ski I like, I ski it into the ground, season after season. I'm not a multiquiver skier, I like a top ski for all conditions.

Any advice welcome.

I do not know what swiss snow is like, and if its primarily hard and your like camber maybe you should just stick with camber. Do you want to keep a twin tip? what were your likes/ dislikes about the Public Enemies?

as far as twin tips go, they're actually a good all mountain ski, but i'm not fussed either way. I got them for free, and happened to like them a lot as well. As for camber, I thought rockered skis are still cambered, like a regular ski, but towards the tip the go up when you put pressure on the center and reverse the camber.

Sorry, I couldn't think of anything else I could add to what's already been said about them.

 

95 mm waist

19 m turn radius

A bit of rocker in tips and tails

Ski of the year from Fall Line (UK ski mag, so reviews are biased towards skiing in the Alps)

 

They're supposed to be pretty good on and off piste.
