Ski 'em like you stole 'em
By pel4942930 September 29, 2011
I'm an aggressive backcountry skier, 5'9" and about 155 lbs. I've demoed these in the 177 length and own the 184's. The shorter pair was more nimble, but a touch twitchy. Consequently, I'm on 184's.
They rip in any condition.
Rockered tip and flat tail make touring easier.
Durable as expected for a ski with burly edges and bases.
Damp, smooth ride.
You have to ski them hard-they demand that you drive them in a forward stance, all the time and in all snow conditions.
Extra beef=extra mass.
Stiff flat tails are unforgiving of lazy landings-if you don't get out of the backseat ASAP when you land these things, they'll throw you.
As with most rockered skis, I suggest going up a size if you aren't sure. If you bring your A-game, these skis will reward you, big time. If not, go for a softer ski.
