Elan Wavemaster Fusion: interesting as east-coast ice ski ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I could get a deal on these, but don't find a lot of information on this model.

 

Think they are the 2010 model, 67mm underfoot.

 

How would these perform as an on piste/bumps east-coast ski ?

Looking for excellent grip on ice/hard snow, short/medium/long radius versatility and stability at speed.

The information I found indicates that these skis are detuned slalom skis as indicated by the narrow waist. Elan is known for great carvers, they could do well for small east coast mountains. However, Sl's are not generally great bump skis and are subject to being bent. You can ski them with longer radius turns, but, unless you like to focus on short turns, they may not be the best match.

 

I make it a point to demo Elan skis each season, and, they have always impress in short turns.
