K2 Shreditor 112 ... tiny little almost useless second-hand review

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Length Tested: 189

Dimensions/Turn Radius:  135/112/130

Camber: Early Rise Tip & Tail  w/camber

Mount point: I assume it was suggested (demo)

 

 

Environment & Conditions:

Location of Test:  Copper Mountain

Number of Runs:   3 hr

Snow Conditions:   soft, plentiful, but not much untracked

Demo or Own:  demo

 

Tester Info:

Username:   n/a

Age:   19

Height/Weight:  6'6" 185

Ski Days/Season:    30

Years Skiing:   13

Aggressiveness: not sure, on the aggressive side of finesse?  relatively under control for a teenage boy. :-)

Current Quiver:   184 Blizzard the One, 189 Icelantic Keeper

Home Area: Copper, Purgatory

Preferred Terrain :  off-piste

 

My son demo'd these yesterday morning, and his impressions almost exactly echoed the ones I've read: fun, maneuverable, versatile. Similar to his Keepers but more playful -- especially for a 189.  We were in pretty amazing snow all day, most was chopped but it was super cold, with not much traffic, so it was still very soft and light.  He enjoyed laying them over on the groomed, but not sure how they would do on harder snow since we were lucky.

 

He is skiing on a busted-up meniscus (surgery is in 3.5 hr), so I was looking for a ski that wouldn't be too demanding while he was briefly ignoring doctor's orders to stay off the snow.  I think he probably likes these better than his Keepers, uh oh, but that's too bad. 

 

Not the best photos, but you can get a little idea

Hmmm....just looking at the pics, that skier could be segbrown, who rocks both as a skier and fashion model. Pearce definitely gets his color preferences from Mom, be it genetic or learned.

Seg, Gotta a chance to fondle a shreditor yesterday. Very interesting ski. I like the feel when hand flexing and the profile. A woman in the shop said it was more fun to ski than a LaNina which is pretty much just a Unleashed hell. Hmmmmmmm

It could be learned, a little bit: I started putting him in orange shirts when he was a toddler and we were in airports and Disneyland and other random public places, because it was so much easier to see him if he started wandering, which he tended to do. He always had a specific "airport shirt." Then it evolved into his ski kit, he very often had either orange pants or an orange jacket. Again, easier to see him. Although at this point, he is hard to miss at 6'6".
