I demoed a pair of K2 Rictor 90xti's on Monday and really liked them. Lots of good reviews on the net, I had fun on them...what's not to like right? I need to put bindings on them though and at the shop one of the guys was really high on Salomon STH2 16's. Again, good reviews on the net, Salomon is a solid company with a reputation for putting out good gear...what's not to like.
I'm 6'2", 250lbs but should be able to get back down to 230 with some work (biceps tendon repair and rotator cuff debridement will put a damper on physical activity. So, I'm a big guy and consider myself a solid but improving intermediate skier. Haven't been off piste as yet but I'd like the opportunity. Is this a combo that will allow me to do that or should I look in another direction.
