Reccomendation for twin tip skis.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm an upper level intermediate skier who wants to buy a first set of twin tips. I don't want to buy really wide ski's and prefer ski's that are light as. Any stand out recommendations you guys can make?

Welcome EchoFiveOne!

I'll echo rednuts question about width.
There are a lot of options in a mid fat range like the Volkl Karma, Atomic Snoop Daddy, and many others in the 88 ish range, but it would help to know what width you're thinking.

I assumed thats why he specifically asked about a twin tip.... It is a very good park pipe ride, very light, like he asked for and pretty good sized with an 86 waist, not to big not too small

Thanks for the replies.
The width of my carvers is like 70mm, theyre a few seasons old.

I really like K2 Public Enemy skis (85mm waist) and Volkl Karmas (87mm waist). Both fairly light. These skis do feel slightly clumsy underfoot to me, but not nearly as bad as the really wide skis out there now. I am not sure what to recommend in a narrower twin -- have not really looked into that (part of my reason for going twin was to get a wider set of skis for soft snow).

If you want an 80mm wide ski look at the head mojo 80's or the k2 silencer- both represent the stiffer end and the softer end of the spectrum respectively.

SIlencers are going for under $230 as well right now while mojo's can be had for about $100 more.

Where do you live? If you live out west consider the Salomon 1080 Thruster. It is easy to carve and a fun ski. Its main downside is its grip on ice.

I respectfully disagree, you haven't mentioned what you want to do with them but the Thruster is a underweight ski. The older 1080's could take a serious beating, but the Thrusters just aren't the same ski. Be carefull if you like to go big they will fold up on you.

I just picked up this setup myself: http://www.evogear.com/Dynastar/item_9852.aspx

Like them so far, but if I wanted to spend a little extra money I'd say go with the Volkl Karma's for sure.

Yet, another vote for the Volkl Karma

Hi,

Here is my experience of the Karma:

It has been a fun ski for all conditions!

Thanks,

Michael
