Interesting ConstructionI couldn't pass up the $ 155 deal on Overstock.com, since I am 6'3" and 225 I went for the 185cms.
Got these home today and they are extremely interesting in terms of sidecut and construction. The specs on the side of the ski say they have a dual radius sidecut of 16.5 and 14.5 meters. If you sight down the edge of the ski you can see that the front half of the ski has a different sidecut than the back half. The shovels are broader than the tails, which is not surprising, but the shovels seem stiffer as well which is a little different. Overall a pretty stiff ski except in the tails which seem like they will release nicely, especially in the bumps. So even if these are advertised as a twin tip, they are really something else, I don't think I've seen this construction on any other normal twin tip and certainly not on park skis.
Even though I am somewhat disdainful of Euroweenies, from my time over there I know that they do know a thing or two about skiing. So if these have been winning reviews over there it must be for a reason. My expectation is that these skis will ski like two different skis depending upon how you ride them. Lean forward and get over the tips a little and it looks like a GS ski. Sit back and use a more centered stance and they are probably a little more like slaloms. And with the soft tails they should release really well in the bumps, even for a longer ski, which is perhaps why AC likes these as a Jane ski.
Now I have to figure out which binders to put on them, I am leaning toward a Rossi FKS/Look Pivot or a Tyrolia Mojo, and get them out on snow for a supplemental review. If anyone gets on them ahead of me I will look foward to their experience.
