Stockli Stormrider L : Anyone know this ski?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've looked for info on this model and have come up empty, except for the Stockli web site which leaves a lot of room for helpful info. Is this a toned down XL for lesser mortals, ie. perhaps a shop rental
ski? Anyone had any experience or knowledge on this stick?
thanks

you could compare demensions and construction with the XL and XT to see how it fits into the line.

Thanks: good suggestion. I hadn't noticed that the 'L' doesn't have the titanial sheet or the reinforcement under the foot, so it probably is somewhat less formidable as the XL. They list it's use for racing, but not very high in the speed category??

Whar's the XT? Did U mean the AT?

Thanks

Also note that Stockli makes an XL and an XL Edition. They are identical dimensionsally, but the XL is a wood core and the XL Edition is Isocore. I've owned both and find the XL Edition much easier to ski.

Id like to update this long dormant thread.  Can anyone provide any more recent info on the Stormrider L. There appears to be some very good pricing recently on this model.  Dont know what to make of it.  Seems to be the only stormrider model without metal-which is a good or bad thing depending on your prospective. Im familiar with the XVL and the rotors, but there dont seem to be many comments or info on this model

 

In my case, thinking it might be pretty good East coast hard pack  front sider for cruising with the wife and kids but with a little stockli traditional stability at speed for those 2 or three runs when you get without the groms.

Just bought a pair on closeout after demoing them.  Nice-performing  moderate midfat that lines up almost exactly with  K2 Recons as far as dimensions.  A bit firmer and a better carver than the K2s, with good versatility.  Probably very good for what you want, provided you're less than 200 lbs.

The Stormrider L was a ski in Stockli's line that is built as a price point model, by another company (Head, Fischer, Elan?), with Stockli spec'd materials, in someone else's factory.  Actually, wood core with a layer of metal - mid 70's waist width.  Only shares the name with other Stormriders, performance is very middle of the road, but not a bad ski, but not a true expert level, hand built ski.  Often found in higher end rental fleets, or at closeout.

Coolhand: Now that is some useful information. !!!!!! Thank you.

 

Not made by stockli-guess ill pass then. Now on the CX80s, or was that 8.7s.  No it was a tigershark...no a monster 82....too many skis....LOL

kbuzz, just to confuse matters, there are some older XL's, Crosses, and AT's on sale new at Denver-the-closeout-darkside for decent prices right now. The XL in a shorter length would fit your mission, as would one of the Cross 24's (yellow ones, not Pros).

Beyond thanks for the info. Actually the listing by the denver outfit was what prompted by bump of this thread. However, if it is not a stockli made ski, well then, as posted above i will pass on it.  

post #12 of 13

Hear you; but XL's and AT's from a few years back are all Stockli made.

Just want to clarify that the Stormrider L is a multi-laminate wood core ski without any metal layers.  It's also one of the few Stockli models that I've never skied - so I can't help any further.
