Hart Attack Skis--Anyone Try them?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi Everybody,

 

Finally saw a pair of these in a shop the other day (the slightly older, black and red model--2012'ish?). Was mighty impressed with the fit and finish. Seemed to have a really friendly, even flex as well.

 

Any clue as to how these perform? I actually spoke to the company owner a few years back, and he wouldn't divulge the sidecut radius--which kind of ticked me off. ("How a ski turns depends on the skier," was all he would say.) Of course, he has a point. Still, given the radius and flex, I can begin to intuit how the ski might want to turn at different speeds and with different levels of input.

 

The only reviews that I can find say they're light, surprisingly damp, and feel very comfortable to ski. All good so far... Looking for an all mountain with slalom-ish qualities, rather than a big mountain GS turner.

So you want an all mountain ski with a short turn radius?

Good point. I should have clarified. All mountain for the east coast/New England--ie. something a little wider than a dedicated frontside carver, maybe a little early rise in the nose for varied conditions.

 

I already have longer, shallower sidecut skis that I can open it up on. They can be a pain when skiing with family and friends though. I'm constantly trying to keep the skis "on a leash."
