09 Hart Skis Sugarbush Test / Thanks Phil

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Major thanks to our own Phil for getting together the hardgoods & organizing the event @ Sugarbush yesterday. The event had a good turn out & a wide ranging cross section of skiers to test some of the coolest skis not yet out!

Phil busted out an impressive line up of skis & the crowd was quite pleased to get to test on Sugarbush's Lincoln Peak. While comprehensive reviews are coming, let me just leave you with this: Hart has some of the nicest craftmanship out there in a ski & where has the Boss been?

Of the fleet skied yesterday, by far the standout was the Fuelie Boss. This ski came in a 195cm size, yet was just a smooth as butter. Calm & huggin the snow, the Boss had a smooth ride that just wanted to make super G turns out of any terrain. Rolled up on edge nicely, carved into the snow well & gently released each & every turn. Suprising for such a large/long ski. Kinda like a matured Dynastar Legend Pro. This was especialy impressive since every single tester ageed that the mounting point on the ski should be moved up ~3-4 cm. Boss handled the loose pow & crud with ease. Never flinched at speed & turned smoothly. Graphics were on par w/ Stockli quality & the flex was just perfect!

This ski has potential to be a classic reference for big ski performance.

Thanks Phil!

Thanks. I moved this over to "reviews". We are waiting for 'ExoticSki" to compile the results. I will toss a coupla of two cents in along the way.

ExoticSki was nice enough to do a quick product overview

In the women's line, you said they would be adding the 66 waisted Sweet Hart and the 77 waisted Hart Breaker, but.........(I know you hate buts) I was wondering what is happening with the twin for women?

Is it possible that they will keep the twisted twin as is, but offer an optional length to target the lighter weight men and the women?

We are working on the womans twin. Haven't found a source we are satisfied with yet.

Phil, put my name on a Demo in that bump ski 180. I would like to try that in some serious bumps. Never skied a bump ski per se.

The 194 freight train looks like fun. It would be good to try that with lots of space in case turning became a problem.

My demos will be at ForeRunner ski shop (on the Kton access road) starting next week for a week or so, let me know if you are going to be up there. We can make arrangements for you to take them out.

Just as long as I'm not on the same mountain at the same time.
