Shreditor 102/112 or 2013 hellbent?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am in a dilemma: I can still find the older K2 hellbent skis available, and only heard a few things about the shreditor.  Being that Washington has its awesome powder days but it also has it dry days where there are groomers.   Any thoughts? has anyone skied both of them?  I ski the crystal/Stevens area and little Utah/Colorado area a few times every year.

Shreditors over the Hellbents any day. I personally thought the Hellbents were awful, like a rocking chair, not stable didn't hold an edge, not even that fun in powder. Get the 112's for deeper days or the 102 for an excellent all mountain ski.

Thanks that's good info, I was looking at the 102 for an all around ski, we only get those deep powder days every once in a while.

Is this for an everyday ski? I'd go with one width of the Shredditor over the Hellbent for sure unless it's a dedicated pow ski.

 

Assuming it is an everyday ski, it is really what width you feel emphasizes what you ski on.  I get away with a 108mm underfoot ski up here at Baker every day, so I would definitely consider the 112 though the 102 will be more versatile.  Your weight/aggressiveness/preferred terrain will all be major determining factors in what ski you want. If you're a lighter skier under 170, you should be able to make the 102 work in the deepest powder fairly easily.
