DON'T GET YOU PANTIES IN A BUNCH!
i am well aware of the radius of the Chariot! 15m And ALL OF MY SKIS!!! 13M 15M 12.5 , WTF difference is 2M gonna make. None in Pow!
Smaller sidecut skis, ski powder just fine.... at least on my feet AND APPARANTLY
The sidecut radius has almost no bearing on skiing powder.
In is about average ski width , waist width and Flex....Sidecut radius is not an important consideration in 3d snow.
Sidecut very much does affect how a ski skis in powder, and usually for the worst. When you get into long, 110+mm underfoot skis, a change in 1m in sidecut makes a fairly large difference in how a ski works in powder because the tips and tails become much larger than the waist, and it makes the ski hooky due to the trampoline effect described above. There is a reason modern powder skis all have tip rocker/early and very little sidecut near the tips. For all the talk you do about how sidecut doesn't matter in powder, modern ski design does not agree with you.
You can ski a cambered ski with lots of shape in powder, but the performance is subpar compared to more modern designs. That's why I suggested that the OP not worry about sidecut so much and that he he should look at an early rise/rockered ski that doesn't force him to rely on traditional carving technique all the time for optimal performance.
Well, we should really be trying to help the OP, rather than sniping about whether sidecut works in powder, but I have to say that I have NEVER demoed a ski and said "boy, I wish that ski had LESS sidecut". But maybe that's just me.
OP, while the SkiLogics sound great, you may have difficulty in finding demos. If you are stuck on the super-short radius -- and you should know what you need more than anybody -- find a good Head demo center.
However, I want to mention that in spite of not quite meeting your radius desires, the Nordica Patron is the best ski I've ever been on for both carving and smearing. It will do about any style that suits you, without a lot of work.
The 95-107 Stormriders in the 170-something lengths have very deep sidecuts, I think around 16 and change. Rossi Soul 7 is also very deep at that length, and the 5-point front sidecut makes initiating turns silly easy. Ramp and Zag might be worth looking at.
Another approach would be to change your style of skiing; seems to me that you could smear turns fairly nicely with a full rockered ski, not have to worry about much tip pressure to turn, and a big enough tip rocker would keep it up out of hook-land. Volkl makes several of these, also many of the indies. Check out Moment and Praxis, for example.
The OP is looking for <14m not >14m
Line Sick Day 95 and 110 are slightly >16m in 172 cm length.
Line SFB is 15 m in 172.
