2007 Stockli Stormrider AT

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I know someone getting rid of a pair of these skis in a 174cm length.  Does anyone have experience with these?  They seem to be a sidecut and turn radius that would suggest decent all-mountain eastern application.  What level, weight and aggressiveness of skier are these best suited for?  Thanks for the help!

My 18 year old son has used a pair (166cm) for the last two seasons. He's 6', 135lbs and a pretty aggressive level 7(?) at this time. He was a few inches shorter when we got them. He skis all Eastern terrain including high speed groomers, bumps, glades, terrain parks, but heavy into bumps at this point. He likes them a lot and has progressed much on them skill-wise. Believe they are meant to be a jack of all trades, master of none and were positioned at the bottom of the Stockli line, but still a very well crafted ski. I've skied them a few times, decent all mtn Eastern application is a good way to describe them. Think their width underfoot is around 76. When he's done with them I might steal as a back-up to my beaten-up RX8s. 174cm sounds great, esp if you're a little heavier than my son.

What bindings does your son have on these skis?  Any recommendations?

Marker titanium 1200.

 

I could add that the few times I skied them they seemed slightly stiffer than my 175cm RX8s, so 174 should be a fairly manly ski.  My son really rips groomers with his, much faster than I, so I think they have a fairly high speed limit too.  Just to be sure, here's the ski I'm talking about:

Yes ... that's the same ski.  Thanks.

slight revision here, FWIW. The ski is positioned at the bottom of the Stormrider model series, not the Stockli line in general, as they make a whole range of skis below the Stormrider. The AT is basically a de-tuned XL, wood core replaced with foam core. They tend to sell for less for that reason. I ski the XL, so ask about that if you have questions in general, but haven't skied the AT. 
 

 

I would guess they are a master of firm snow and groomers, not bad in bumps.

Thanks davluri, good clarifications.  What bindings do you have on your XLs?

Any concerns about the foam core in these Stockli's?

Haven't looked at the specs for the AT, but many non-wood core Stoecklis have the ISO core, which is a vertical laminate that doesn't turn to a noodle.
