Freeskier also liked them.

I was at Wilderness Sports in Dillon this evening and saw some of these skis there. Stunningly beautiful, and although light had a very nice "quality" look and feel. Coincidentally when I got home this link was waiting in the latest Skiing newsletter...

I totally disagree (referring to the post that said they are probably fun to look at but might not be too durable).  I demoed them at Vail and Beaver Creek last week. Great in deep snow (and I was skiing the narrowest ski they make- the Rave at 92 underfoot), crud and bumps.  Not a huge fan on the hardpack on one section at Vail, but it could have been the tune (or lack thereof).

Couldn't tell you about the durability, but they are essentially carbon fiber skis with wood core and wood onlay graphics- should be really durable.  But time will tell.

I can tell you that they are super fun to ski.

Met a patroller from A-Basin last month using his Howitzers with tele bindings. Told me that they were his daily drivers all of last season and well into this one, that they were still very lively and that the bases were bomb-proof. Topsheets, while well worn, still looked very cool to me.

The bases are indeed very hard, fast and pourous (the bases seem to suck up a lot of wax). The topsheets--at least mine--don't seem to wear faster than any other ski although I haven't used a fat ski much this year due to spending most of my time skiing on man made snow (hopefully some Sierra pow on Wednesday).  You would think something that good looking shouldn't be able to ski well, but the skis certainly perfrom.  Like almost all wood core skis, they should remain "lively" since the camber (in those skis designed to have it) shouldn't go away.  There are now quite a few reviews in magazines, on realskiers.com, TGR and here about some of the models.  Like almost any brand, some people love certain models and some think certain models are just OK.  I am certainly happy with my skis and expect to mount them on a wall someday.  Now the skis reside in my younger son's room, to go along with his baseball and skiing posters.

Ater skiing several models of Skilogik this season, I can say that they have been some of the most fun skis and durable, that I have ever been on.  The bases as others have stated are bomb proof.  I have run over more than my share of rocks this season with one ding in one base- and that didn't even need P-tex.

 

I have been skiing the Front burner (84 underfoot, 14 meter arc) the whole season as my recreation and teaching ski. Just fantastic.  I have had a few chips on the top sheet from students running over them, but no more than I have had with any of my other teaching skis over the last few years.

 

I ski the Rave as well in 165 on the east coast, 175 out west and it is so forgiving, arcs well even on ice(the ones I tried out west must not have had the best tune in the world).  They are really easy in the bumps even at 92 underfoot-  which is something my east coast brethern may have trouble believing.

 

My wife is skiing the Isis in 155 (92 underfoot, 15 meter arc).  She is an intermediate skier and does anything she wants with them (and doesn't even have to think about it).

 

All of the skis are traditional camber. Actually, the 175 Raves have a beefier camber for more snap.  They make some rocketed skis but I haven't skied them.

 

I guess we like them.

 

Oh, yeah. They look good too!

Saw these top sheets in person for the first time. The pictures don't even come close to doing justice.

 

If only they would build something 190cm r30 105waist with about 3mm camber, 35cm tip rocker, 20cm tail, and taper.

Surfacehoar,

 

Not sure if you have been to their site and/or if you are just wishing out loud. They will build you whatever ski you want and for a reasonable price. Not cheap, but reasonable for what you are getting. I have a pair of Ullr's Chariots and they are unbelievable ski. I am getting used to a wide ski for the first time and really enjoying them. Their edges have the best grip on Eastern boiler plate I have ever felt. If we ever get some snow I can't wait to try them in some powder (East coast poweder)
