Center mounting directional twin and effect on carving

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I have the K2 sight ski which is more of an all mountain twin that's decent at carving than a park ski, in 159 length.  This year It was mounted at "traditional" which is about -7.5 from core center.  The ski is directional so it doesn't the same sidecut going switch and apparently has some rocker in the front, but comparing it to the tails I can't see a difference.  

 

Next year because I won't get to go out west, I will be skiing quite a bit more park and I know center mounted skis are much better in the park.  Does anybody know if mounting a non symmetrical twin would totally screw up its carving ability?  Because I still want to be able to carve well on midwest icy groomers.

Yes, it completely changes the way they ski. They will ski shorter and feel a bit less stable(less in front and more in back).They will be a little quicker turning but may feel a bit squirrely. However, in the park they will be a little more comfortable. Give and take.   Dave

How fast will I have to ski for them to start to feel pretty unstable compared to traditionally mounted?

At quite a slower speed, moving the binding almost 8cm further forward will dramatically reduce a skis stability.
