The guys at CCBC really went out of their way to get me in something that would work for me. So far, that’s really paid off. I’ve skied 5-6 days on the setup. Maybe 10k of up. They are light plenty lightweight that I can toss them on a pack and seem to ski themselves.
These skis are fantastic, took them out for a few test runs at the resort yesterday. First thing you'll notice is they are very light (1200-ish g per ski in a 175). Second, turn initiation is smooth (skied both ice and packed powder) . Combine these things together and you have a competent ski that doesn't wear you out on the up (I'm guessing at this point) or the down. Pretty soft flex so I'm guessing the speed limit is around 40ish when conditions aren't super soft. Riding them with TLT8 Carbon and Dynafit Speed Radicals was a joy. Plan is to use these for resort skinning and volcano season. I'll try and report back later.
