Sir Francis Bacon OR Volkl Bridge

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I am looking for a truly all mountain ski but also can do a little bit of park, so about 80% all mountain and 20% park.  I was looking at the SFB's and Bridges but am still pondering on which one to get.  Any opinions appreciated,

 

Thanks

What kind of park skiing do you do? I can't imagine taking my bacons on rails regularly, that would be a lot of work. As far as jumps and spins go they aren't too bad, but do know that there is a lot more ski to swing around compared to the Bridge. The Bridges would also probably be more forgiving on the the landings since they are a full rocker ski, unlike the Bacons which have camber underfoot. I'm not 100% on this but I think the Bridges are more damp/stiffer than the Bacons, as in the Bacons are more playful, definitely more of a jibby ski.

 

It also comes down to where you ski and what the all mountain experience is for you...?

Hey, thanks for your response.  I do 50% rail and 50% jumps.
