Has anyone yet been able to demo this year's crop from the Head Peak line?
I was hand-flexing the skis at a tent sale this weekend and the tips on the new models are quite soft. Above the hinged section, you can literally bend the tips with three fingers. I get the impression that the tips will really diminish performance on hard snow. Those tips have to be flopping all over on the hardpack.
Very strange design. I think all the manufactures are trying to obtain a marketing advantage over the competition when it comes to rocker and early rise designs.
