How does the 187 yle compare to the 184 bibby pro and 186 atomic automatic. looking to replace my 2nd gen 190 bibby's with something easier to manage in the trees...
These are completely different from the Automatics as they are used for different purposes. The YLE have a symmetrical sidecut unlike the Automatics which are have a directional sidecut. The YLEs are used for more backcountry freestyle while the Automatics are more of a big mountain charger. I cannot give you information on the bibby pros as I haven't used them but you currently own a pair so you have an idea of how they ski.
The YLEs charge hard. they want to go straight and fast and air everything in between. Yea they are more centered, but that just provides a bigger landing pad.
