2006 Fat Twin Tips ...Pics and Sidecut

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Here are some pics of "the latest and greatest." I love the Mantras and the Scratch Bcs are also very hip.

What do you think?

Those things are fat! ..hard to tell from the pics though. I ski Pocket Rockets in everything just fine. Someday I want to get another setup for alpine touring - something wide but light. Would be nice if they would list the weight.

Those skis look great! I also ski the PR's as well as an everyday ski. For me I would like a 100 or so underfoot ski now, like the fischers or the New Gun Labs. As well as like a Stiff race ski for hard groomers days....

Looking at that chart, I notice that the Zag Freestyle BC has a radius of 16 and 14. Why are they so much smaller than the rest of them?

The sidecut on Zags is recessed backwards and the sidecut length is shorter than the on-snow contact length. If you look at that pic again, the sidecut doesn't start until underneath the car wheels (look closely at the graphic).

ScottUSA has a similar design with their Aztec/Santiago Pure/Santiago Mission. See the ski here. See the concept explained as 'Pre Track' here.

There have been a few Zag owners on the forum. Most of the reviews have been about powder/groomed performance. I want to know how well they do in bumps.
