all-mountain twin tip reco for a skiboarder?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I've been skiboarder on little short twin tip fat skiboards for the past 7 years or so, and now I'm ready to move onto something new.

I'm thinking I want a twin tip ski, because I can ride fakie on my short skis. However I never goto the terrain park. Im more of a through the trees and steeps (don't like mogul skiing though) kinda guy who does some occasional smaller jumps.

I'd like something very agile, as my skiboards turn on a dime. I'm 5'11, 170lb so I think a 165cm would be the normally recommended length, however since Im used to skiboards, I wonder if I should try some 150cm.

I've heard some good things about the Solomon Teneighty Foil...

So what do you guys recommend?

Also, whats an inexpensive binding that would go on the skis you reco.

thanks!

I demoed about 5 pair last year at Whistler and for what its worth my favorite all mountain twin tip that worked well in the steeps and in the powder where the K2 Public Emeny (the black, red and white pair). They were great on the groomers as well, which I didn't find with the 1080's. This was my first experience with twin tips and I found that the 1080 foils seemed like a fairly advanced and consequently stiffer ski and may not be suitable as an entry twin tip candidate.

BTW: if anybody has a pair of the K2 PE (174, 179) that they would be willing to get ride of please PM me as I would love to add these to my quiver.

Cheers,


Matthew

Matthew,

K2 PE's can be had new for less than $300. Must be a lot of unsold inventory.
