I'm a skier from the southern French Alps (living in the UK atm)I am looking for a new pair of skis for 60%touring and 40% resort skiing (when at resort I ski on groomers, off piste & park). I also love to build backcountry kickers. My previous pair of skis was Amplid C7s 185cm : extremely powerful, heavy, piste-oriented twin-tips. Impossible to tour with, and not that great in the park.
So my criteria for these new skis are the following:
-182-188 cm length (I am 6ft3/190cm and weigh 85 kilos)
-Weight of pair <3600g for touring
-Rocker & Camber
-Between 88 and 110 mm underfoot
-No ridiculously large turn radius
-Here's were it gets tricky... As I said I like trips to the park and building kickers. So I would ideally want twin tips. Or at least enough tail rise to ski & land switch. Yep, I know, it's not easy.
I've done a bit of research myself, and randomly came across a pair of fatypuses, the d'lirium. 96 underfoot, 3300 grams for the pair at 183 cm, and twin tips. However there are no reviews whatsoever, and I have no idea if fatypuses are worth anything at all. I've never known anyone who owned some. Does anyone know if the model itself is any good or if the brand as a whole makes quality products?
I've also come across a few other models
-Faction agent 90s (not sure they have enough tail rise...)
-Icelantic Shaman Skny (a tad heavy and stiff)
-Asnes Tind Topptur (Norwegian brand that no one's heard of, can't find any kind of review)
Does anyone know anything about the skis I've listed? Are Fatypuses any good? Do my criteria seem right for what I'm planning on doing?
Any other skis you could suggest? Or am I looking for a ski that doesn't exist?
Infinite thanks for your help!
