PMGear Lhasa Pow Product Testing -- Video

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
We made about 40 different prototypes of the Lhasa Pow before deciding on the one that we thought had the perfect blend of rocker, flex, shape characteristics that we were looking for.

Making so many prototypes it's impossible for us to test them all ourselves so we give many of them to our freeride team athletes to test and well, generally beat the shiit out of

One of our athletes, Athan Merrick, based out of Whistler BC, had a POV1 helmet cam on him on his first day on one of the very first prototypes of the Lhasa and he put together this quick vid.

It's kind of commerciall-y but I really dig the vibe of the vid....it's fun...and hopefully it's a bit of fall stoke for you guys. And plus you can see how he beats the hell out of the skis that we send his way. ha!

The tempting continues, I wish I had the cake for those. Oh well, soon enough I'll be skiing every day and won't be so frequently exposed to the teasing.

Easy...consistently ski and stomp lines like these

Tyrone,
I'm curious if you can pivot more on these skis vs. other Bros? I ask because I tried the 179 last year and thought they were spectacular on hard pack/groomers and straightlining powder, but I wasn't able to get them around very easily in the trees and other times I tried to pivot/schmear.
Will the tip rocker and shape on the Lhasa allow for that?

Definitely.

Pretty much as a rule of thumb, any rockered ski should be able to pivot/schmear with greater ease than a traditionally shaped ski.

That being said though, if pivoting/schmearing is your greatest concern, a ski that also has tail rocker (the Lhasa just has tip rocker) would probably pivot/schmear the easiest (but would also be a bit more specialized of a ski overall...i.e. more pow specific).

O RLY?

At nearly 12,000 feet in elevation, I'd expect there has been more than a little pow over the years.

Wow, Ty- thanks for the stoke... I am seriously vibrating with anticipation to get my hands on my new 183s... Any more of this stoke-video-posting and I may go into a BRO-coma, or a Broma as it has come to be known as.
