For Sale:Brand New Volant Chubb FB 185cm with Salomon 810

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Brand new with mounted Salomon S 811 bindings! They are currently mounted for my boot, mondopoint 30.5. However I will mount them for the buyer if he or she so chooses and I have a comparable boot in stock. These skis as well as the bindings are brand new, I have never skied on them! The only reason I am selling is because I want to get the new Atomic Sugar Daddy. I'm asking $350. If anyone needs a review or a detailed description post up.
edit: s 811 bindings not s 810!

I'm interested, but am just getting into the fat ski market. I don't know a thing about powder skis except for seeing all of those pr's buzzing around. Perhaps you could let me know what this ski is about.

Thanks.

From an online description:
"
FB Ski Dimensions

tip/waist/tail/ = 128cm /94cm /116cm


Sidecut radius is 24 meters for the 185cm FB



THE FAT BASTARD DIFFERENCE:

The Fat Bastard (FB) model comes from the same exact mold as the V2 Chubb. They have the exact same shape or 'footprint' as the Chubb model. There are two distinct differences between the Chubb and FB models.

The first is obvious...paint job. The Machete FB graphic is cutting edge Volant Machete!

The second difference is the core material. The FB features a wood core vs. the Chubb which integrates a dual density foam core. The wood core provides many benefits to the experienced skier. Wood provides incredible energy return and durability. In this case it also makes the ski a bit more demanding of the skier which is why the FB is the ski of choice for experienced skiers. If you are looking for something mellow and extremely forgiving consider the Chubb. If you are an aggressive skier or a heavy skier, good athlete, need a ski to show you the way to the next level or any combination of the above then the FB is for you.

The best thing about these skis is the versatility. Obviously they work unbelievably well in powder, that statement is a given truth and they truly are incredible in powder snow. What is most surprising and what most people don't realize is how well they ski in the other conditions. The extreme torsional rigidity of these skis which comes from the patented Volant V2 Steel Skirt gives these skis incredible edge hold. The wider you make a ski the greater the amount of torsional twist load on the ski. The steel in volant skis resist torsional twisting better than any other ski technology in the world. This allows this wide ski to ski on groomers like you will not believe. This is a fat ski which you truly can ski in all conditions!

"This is the first ski I have used from Volant and i found it to work great in all kinds of conditions which suprised me. The steel top sheet really helps for edge grip".

4 1/2 stars out of 5!

I'm about to throw these up on ebay if no one is interested. The skis alone went for $305 this week on ebay. My price is a steal!

I'll have to recheck. If I do have to redrill it would only be on the plate that is being drilled on. I don't have any pictures of my acutual skis but both the bindings and skis are brand new! My email is jamestcarl@yahoo.com if you want to reach me that way.

I think they may have to however the skis are made with a plate so that you aren't actually drilling into the skis. I can remount for you if you want to or I could sell a little lower if you don't want the bindings and I'll plug the holes up. Let me know.
