Hi Skiingbossman,  I have skied "The One" and the others in the WhiteDot llineup and really like their designs and the people behind the small company.  The One is targeted at the park-and-pipe crowd, but can make a perfectly nice all-around frontside ski.  It is very responsive, quick, has good edgehold for a twintip and is very nicely built.  It is definitely higher-quality and stronger than many twintips I have seen out there... a notch above the mass-produced marketplace products I think.....Mounted in park-mode, it can be a little shy about GS-speeds, but mount it back a bit from the park-mount mark and it can be quite versatile. Let me know if you have any specific questions. To be honest, I am NOT a park-rat and spend my time on-snow instead of the air....so you may want to hunt down some other guys who have put it through its park-paces. My review on Epic:

The folks over at www.snowheads.com also have experience with the WhiteDot guys and their skis.

Skiingbossman, they have a very good rep over here - the reviews above sum them up well.

Google (Whitedot Freeride Team Member) Fred Syversen, check out what you find.... I'd say the ski can handle air time.

I have two seasons on their wider boards but have not tried the Ones yet. From a construction standpoint, I think they are very well designed and built. From the materials list and how they have held up from the many hard hits I have given them, I see no reason to believe they are not building some of the most interesting (performance) and durable skis on the market.

 

Hope this helps.
