post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Is anybody out there selling a Head ispeed skis in around a 175-180 length?  I would like to get lower radius GS ski, so other recommendations are welcome as well.

Or if anybody has any other suggestions for a good GS cheater ski, I would appreciate that as well.

When I was looking at this category of ski (for my beer league), I found a ton of great reviews regarding the 2013 Dynastar Speed Course Ti.  I think the radius is in the 16-18m range depending on length.  I believe in 2014 they updated the model to be the "Speed Course Pro", with new (but similar) specs. 

 

I never ended up buying a cheater GS ski and eventually decided to switch gears back to slalom which is a better fit for my league.

Thanks aperry I will take a look at these.  I would like to try to find the i.Speeds, but it seems like they are tough to come across.

I was in Harb Ski Systems yesterday and they had some 175 ispeeds on the rack. Generally not great deals there but it's spring and they usually mark thing down then. 303 567 0679

Google Colorado Discount Skis.  He shows the 13-14 i.speed in stock in 180.  This is a small shop in Limon, CO.  I've bought a number of pairs from this shop, good pricing and always great service.

Atomic Non-FIS D2 Race GS is a better ski!  I have demo'd them back to back. 

 

The i.speed is a very stiff ski. 

 

D2 = 179cm 18.6M turn  radius......better edge hold,  easier turn initiation.  More progressive flex!

Hi,

 

I have a pair of 2014 head ispeeds @177cm with bindings that I purchased new approximately 2 months ago.  Love the skis, but I am looking for something wider underfoot.  Let me know if you are interested and I can send you pictures.

i.speeds don't come in a 177cm 

 

Only 175 or 180cm are you sure it is not a Supershape Speed 177cm  which is a different kettle of fish!

You are right.  My apologies!  I have a pair of supershape speeds @ 177cm.

Thanks for all the help guys, but I found a great deal on a new pair from 2 seasons ago and had to take it.  Only bad thing is they will have to wait till next season to see snow.
