New skis are in.

post #1 of 3

Well, actually not for me, but for my son. I got him some of the new Machete Souls in a 165. He is excited, this is his first year on adult skis. He was on junior Volants last year in a 155 and did try my wifes 160 Vertex 66's and his skiing jumped up. There is a big difference between the older gen and this new V2 gen Volant.

Most of you are aware that the new Volants are coming with a +/-10mm lift now. I am getting ready to mount these up...I am thinking about NOT using a riser with this lift. What are folks doing with skis that have built in lifters? Are you going 20MM or is the 10 fine?

If he is spending a lot of time on groomed snow, adding lift on top of the existing plate should be fine, as a matter of fact i ski all of my skis like this. It brings you up from 47mm or so to around 55mm. I'm assuming that youre using Salomon bindings, possibly AXE+?? If he doesnt like being up that high strip out the AXE lifters and just set him flat on the ski, of course you will need to get a heel shim so he is at some sort of ramp angle. Either use the 914 shim or the higher 912 shim.

He will be skiing every where. Most of the time in VT will be MRG & Bush and some out West. I will say that more than 50% of his time will NOT be on groomers.
