1080 questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I love my old Bandit X’s for bumps and trees and soft snow conditions. I have been planning to replace my old pair with a new set at some point. The new ones are more shapely and beefier and would probably handle a wider range of snow conditions. The Bandits I am on now tend to lose some charm in gunk and stiffer snow.

Last weekend I got to try some 1080’s in the afternoon during my Berthoud Pass cat trip. They were light. I was surprised that they are wider than the Bandit XX by a good measure. I am now wondering if they would be a good replacement for the X’s. They def. can handle more adverse snow conditions better than the X. But can they bump well, make quick turns, etc.

I will try them myself at a tamer area but I am curious. I think Altaskier has mentioned he has a pair to back up his g4’s, or vice versa.

And please, don’t try to get me onto the XX’s. I have skied those and like them and would like to own a pair, but they are not the super quick edge to edge ski I would use on the front side of Mary Jane and banging around Winter Park.

Any opinions as to the 1080 in bumps etc??

I've tried them and though that they were ok in the bumps for a 80 mm waisted ski. The best way to describe it is like a smaller pocket rocket. If you hate the pocket rocket you probably won't like the 1080
