Was on the hunt for a new old 13/14 stock of XT 850 Enduros in 177, as my old Salomon skis were getting a bit tired last season. Found and ordered a pair (I though) but they seem sold out in 177 everywhere. Shop offered me a pair of 179 X-ride FS 88 14/15 instead--for a small premium. So I bought them. Seem to have been getting good reviews and just holding them, they appear very promising. Lighter and a little stiffer than the Enduro said the guy in the shop. So did anyone here ski them last season? What's your verdict? What about bindings? I got the STH 13 with them.
