Your heart is in the park, but your soul needs variety.
The Nordica Soul Rider Ski features an early-rise twintip profile and classic camber underfoot for slaying the park forward or switch and shredding slopestyle all over the mountain. A 97-millimeter waist provides ample platform for soft snow and pow, while sandwich construction gives you quick edge-to-edge and power precision. Two layers of carbon over a full wood core adds lightweight strength, durability, and stability at high speeds. With a moderate sidecut that lets you squirrel through trees and point it at the run-in and run-out, this ski makes the whole hill your playground.

Could we get the weight in grams of the 169s please? Nordica dis not publish on their web site and can't find anywhere. Thanks
Found a great overall review of these skis that you should check into (http://blistergearreview.com/gear-reviews/update-2012-2013-nordica-soul-rider)... However, to answer your question, their measurement of weight for a 185cm set per ski was 2,139g and 2,118g, which equates to about 9.4 total pounds. If you wanted to get a rough estimate (as I cannot seem to find the weight for the 169cm length either), you could use that as a baseline, and subtract a pound or so? **Also, take note that the review on this website "was conducted on the '12/'13 Soul Rider, which is unchanged for the '13/'14, except for the graphics."** Hope this helps. Sorry I couldn't find what you really wanted.. I'll keep hunting.

I'm 6'0" around 165lbs looking at the Soul Riders 185. I'm not sure if this is too long. I'm an intermediate (at best) East Coast rider mostly on groomers and chopped up shallow crud with the occasional powder day. I've already got a pair of El Paco 177 and want something that's better suited for slightly deeper stuff but still a lot of fun like the El Pacos. So, stick with 177 or go bigger for the Soul Riders? Thanks!
I am 5'11" 150lbs and have a pair of 2012 Soul Riders in the 185, and I have only skied them on the east coast this year. Every time I ski someone asks me how the (relatively) wide width handles the east coast ice, and I'm glad to say it does great. I can fly down groomers and, while I haven't skied anything too deep, I can blow through practically all crud with the confident Soul Riders. At first, I was worried about them being too long, but the 185 length helps out on the fast groomers and makes up for the lost edge contact from the tip and tail rocker. All in all, its a fun ski that I highly recommend.
