Marker Squire Schizo 11 for kids? (Park & All-mountain)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have 2 sons who are 10 & 11yrs old, been skiing since 4/5yrs old.  Advanced/Expert level.

They ski mostly park, but we still like to take them with mom/dad on non-parks, groomers, bumps, trees, etc, (mostly East coast with 1wk out West)

 

I am looking at getting new twin tip skis for next year (approx 150cm) and was wondering if anyone had any opinions on the Schizo for kids?  Can they handle some grom park abuse?

 

The Schizos would allow them to be center mounted for park riding and move rewards when with the old people (parents) take them out of the park.  I fear having a center-mounted ski would not be best on steeps and higher speeds, so looking for the versatility.

 

They weigh >70lbs and have a DIN of 3+.

 

Thanks,

John

No. They are tough to get into for a small BSL. What size boot are they in? If it is below a 21.5' they will need to have a binding that will work with a junior lug boot. If they have an adult lug boot and you want an adult binding, the head peak 11, Rossi Axium 10 or Salomon z10 would be an ok choice. Th Rossi will actually work with a junior or adult lug, so it is a binding th at will grow with th em.

Their boots are 22 & 24. I will take a look at the other recommendations but will also keep the schizo in play also since they exceed the minimum weight, DIN and boot size.
