Ullr Chariot @ 168

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Looking for advice. I'm a 165lb 66 year old level 7-8 avid skier who skis the whole mountain short of the NO FALL ZONES. I do not ski particularly fast. We ski a lot of trees and ungroomed soft bumps. I have an opportunity to buy some Chariots in a 168 for about half MSRP. I've never had the opportunity to demo but I really like what I've read about this ski and am tempted to buy them. I'm thinking of using them as my everyday ski at big sky and using my 172 LX82s as my hard snow ski and selling my 178 Blizzard The One's which I enjoy but at times find a little long for me in very tight spots. Anyone with experience with the Chariots in the 168 length?

I have them in the 178cm & luv them.  I think the 168cm would be okay if you are not charging super hard or high speed.   here is a link to my review:

PS  don't discount them as a hard snow ski.

There is a difference between the TT and the RL versions...which one are you looking at and when was it made?

They're two year old  TTs(I think from the graphics) that have never been drilled. They have the two color, dark and light, Ski Logic logo on the tails, NOT the the all white logo like is shown on the Goddess on the Real Skiers review for 2011. The only question is the Realskiers review doesn't list a 168 in the regular TT in 2011. What is the difference in year models?

I ski the TT version in the 178 (5'9", 175lbs.). The TT initially got much better reviews than the RL, but last year the company modified something in the RL and it now on a gaper magazine's 2014 "Official Selection" list.  RealSkiers now likes both versions, too.  I never skied the RL.   I don't ski as well as 4ster, but my thoughts on the TT  are similar to his (I also wrote a detailed review).
