FS: 2015 Stockli Stormrider 95s @ 174 w/ Salomon Z14 demo bindings-SOLD

These 2015 Stormriders were skied at the SIA trade show and then 2 days by me. I am asking $800+shipping (from Boulder, Colorado). Questions, let me know!

By the way, the skis are in near perfect condition. The gray dust on the base is from them being in storage for the summer. Tops are in great shape, too, and I'm happy to send close-ups if you'd like.

I have no idea how these have lasted even THIS long!

I'm a little surprised, myself...! But, available they still are!

great ski but that's a big chunk of change for the site.  They'll sell once the snow flies.

Nice skis! I've heard different opinions on where to mount them. Have you only skied them on the line or experimented at + or - ?

I have not. I skied them on the line, but one advantage to the demo bindings is that you can certainly experiment with different locations to find which works best for you.

That and let your friends take one run on them so they can be jealous for the rest of the season...!

I ski them on the line. They seem fine to me.

Thanks @SSH! Good point about the demo binders; simple enough to move when desired. Have to finagle that darn budget, now!

 

Btw, I demoed them on the line too, @Jed Peters. They skied great! I'm just curious because I remember reading a post (that I think was from Holiday) after an SIA or similar demo day last season, where the reviewer mentioned a slightly forward position on these as "money." I've also heard the same thing said about some Kastles and wonder if anyone else has had the same experience.

Not sure whether it's the skis or me..but I've adapted my skiing to the more upright/centered style.


I recently got back into skiing after a 6-7 year break, and I've noticed skis in general like a more upright position than my previous....i'm getting used to feeling "back seat" to be honest....

I have seen that in many people, Jed. Yes, more upright, less forward pressure, and balancing along the center of the ski to really bend it.

The real amazing thing about these skis is how they hold for a ski this wide. On hard snow, there isn't a ski this wide that comes close. That is, if you like edge hold and performance. If you want a ski that is more slippy and smeary, this one may not be for you.

Come on folks, snows in the forecast and they will start blowing at LL and AB next week.......

I want to justify buying these, but I don't think they're different enough from my Sick Day 95's to to pull the trigger at $800.

I'm 5'7", 150#.  Demoed the SR95 in 174 and the SD95 in 179, and I would say that, for two 95 mm skis, they're very different -- towards the opposite end of the 95 mm spectrum, where the SR95 has  a firm flex and a strong forebody, likes to be driven, and may be the best 95 mm ski on groomers, while the SD95 is a soft ski with a very soft forebody.

Ditto

These are the same ski for 2015, this is a more than fair price. For you who are going to "keep waiting", do that, keep waiting. ;)

Sorry to hijack thread somewhat but I saw the SD95 today at my REI. is it me or are SD "shorter" than others in their size range. The 172 was like a 168 and the 179 was like a 176. Do Line skis just measure different than other manufacturers? ?

Have you not learned? The metric system is subjective and not an definite measuring system...Just put a 169cm NRGy90 next to a 169cm NRGy100..there is a good 4cm difference,,and that is just one brand and similar models.

No doubt, the question is are they different enough to own both.

fwiw: My SD 172s stand up the same height as my other pair of 172s.

I compared the Rossi 88 172 and kendo in 170 against the 172. Both were significantly taller about 2-2.5"

In fact the Kendo and Rossi were very close.

In the 179, I believe the size different was about 1-1.5"

It appears that these are sold. Provided we close the details today, these are off the market.

Confirmed sold... Thanks for the engagement on this thread... In the end there were a few who recognized the deal these are, so congrats to the member who reached out with the first offer at the asking price.

I finally pulled the trigger on these! I was looking to replace an older set of Dynastar Pro Legends Riders with minimal side-cut (27m).  I wanted an all-mountain ski with a bit more of a race carver feel and these seem to be the perfect fit.  

 

After trying unsuccessfully to negotiate a lower price, I finally realized that they are a phenomenal price considering where I would be if I were to pull the trigger on a new set of Stormriders and by all accounts this is the ski I want.

 

Thanks for the careful packaging and prompt shipping Stephen!
