Currently Lola has some Blizzard Viva 7.6 and Eos's, which, in theory was a great quiver in that we could travel and put 4 pr of skis in a double bag, (her two Blizzards and a pair of Blizzards (for me) flat , plus a pair of mounted big skis for me) and pack ONE pr. of bindings for her seperate that I could swap back and forth on her skis. For travel it worked very well. Now...Lola has decided that she doesn't like the Eos's any more, her complaint about them is also mine, in that the tip is too floppy when she gets into crud and even on firm snow and doesn't initiate a turn well. As the family equipment manager, I have been commissioned to get rid of the Eos and replace them. Demo? sorry, but the purchase will be made preseason. If If was going to get a pure powderski, I would look to the rockered Kiku.
Here are the parameters...
Not "girly" or "juvenile" graphice, more understated.
160 cm +/-
90mm waist +/-
Good hard snow control
Good turn initiation
Line Profit 90 (Flite only goes to a 166)
K2 Pay Back (replaces the Phat Luv)
