For me the best feeling I get from skiing is when I am charging hard, exploding bumps, and feeling no hesitation as I roll into airs and dice up the techgnar. The Cochise is the best tool I have found to enable me to do this. I have never been on a ski that is so stable at speed while being so maneuverable and just plain easy, intuitive and fun! Lay 'em over and they carve with surgical accuracy. Lay off the edge a hair and they break into the most predictable speed-controlling drift. It's like having a steering wheel, clutch and brakes - full control enables you to go faster because you know you can steer, slow down, and stop on command. Flipcore is a game-changer in the everyday usability of rockered skis, providing all the benefits of rocker - ease, float, and forgiveness without sacrificing the stability and balls of a big-mountain brawler.
