It looks like the Beat goes on!!!

 

I skied Bob Barnes Pulses the entire weekend while I was in Colorado and really enjoyed them.  The plan is to mount them with the Vist speedlock system so that the binding will be moveable and adjustable.

Nice! I can see those. Very classy, classic look. I'd mount the bindings a little back to avoid obscuring the raised center ridge look. :)

Very nice indeed !

 

Enjoy !

TC

 

We will need an updated quiver pic once these get mounted

 

Now that this decision is behind you, on to the NEXT pair of must have skis......

Thank You. A lot went into the design. When I was still with Hart, I spent some time with the women from TheSkiDiva on these. "Classic" and "timeless" were two words I was basing decisions on. The intent was to have a 3D topskin on them, that would have shown the depths of the colors, I hope that made it to the production models.

Thanks Rod, I like the looks of the Beat, with the clean lines.

I thought about the pulse because I really like how the 4d graphix give you a couple different vantage points.  The Cheetah's never really spoke to me, but they could have inspired the animal in me, eh?

 

Hart has only produced a limited number of the Beats which means that there won't be many floating around, which makes it kind of an original.

I used the new pic upload feature to post that pic above.

I'll do the same for the pulse and Cheetah so you can see those too.

 

Pulse

 

 

Cheetah

That had a ton to do with my decision on buying this ski.

the 3D top ski didn't make it to the pair that I'm buying, but they still look really sharp.

Thanks Phil, and the SkiDivas for putting so much effort into this particular design.

Too bad they don't have the Cheetah in a 110. I know someone that would love those.

Josh did a great job with these, one of the few graphic designers that listens.

Cheetah

The Pulse is much better looking in person.  I actually liked it a lot. I could go for a pair. The Cheetah...if you don't like it here it's worse in person because it's glossy - at least the one I saw.
 

 

Do the Beats have the seemingly classic Hart mounted way too far aft issue?  Certainly those Twisted Twins that I tried at Keystone had that. - Geez, Trek and I had matching skis while skiing together.  No one noticed though, they were too busy trying to run into us.

 Yea, tog, the Harts will be mounted 2 cm forward, for obvious reasons. :)

 

The day we skied together at Keystone was different, I'll say that.  I guess we should have hit the lounge and left the slopes to the masses on that day, especially since we got there so late.

 

It was fun while it lasted tho, and definitely fun to spend a few hours with you.

 

The Beat is much classier in person than the Cheetah and I'm glad I have an opportunity to get on for my day to day skiing.

If we'd left the slopes to the masses, it's just the masses on the slopes. Then we're where? Not on the slopes!!  See, we had fun! Otherwise we'd be talking about uh...the bar at Keystone?

Glad to hear you're going +2!! (not that I know but seems right)

 

I suspect that Hart's mounting points are determined by Italian ex racers who make half a dozen turns in 4000 ft of vertical.  Thus they don't want the ski to turn much.

or...maybe that describes Phil?....

Phil recommended the +2 for that ski as well as a couple of others that Hart puts out.  There are few folks who have as much knowledge in their head about skis(and ski gear) than he does.

 

If you're nice to me, I may let you try my Hart Beat! ;)

Mounting them +2 (or +3 in some cases) is something that we discovered last year during testing> I requested that these be changed during the graphic process, but it never happened. As far as my skiing style, I have two (actually four) words for you...Pizza Pie...French Fries ;)
