It is an orangish red, but it is not red as shown on the site.
Your best bet for a fast answer is Live Chat or the 800 number.
Batteries are not compatible between manufacturers. Have to assume heat levels compare with Thermics, but don't have exact information there.
This is really a do it all ski. Powder, groomers, bumps, crud - they work like a charm. Even with the changes in camber (now early rise) they definitely favor the better skier. A good East Coast choice for sure.
Volkl claims that only Marker bindings can be used on this ski (ie The Duke) but I know they have been mounted with Dynafits, and I mounted them with same. The shop may ask you to sign a disclaimer, but this is in fact one of the skis BC offered with the Dynafit Beast binding.
It is a bit tough to comment on these, because the feedback comes from a kid - but the Kid reports are positive. No reports of pressure points or pain, and the skiing looks great. We have invested in boot heaters to eliminate early hot chocolate pleas - so no real feedback on how warm these boots are.
173 is a solid choice - I ski with a couple of very strong females in Utah who are slightly smaller than you - they ski the 173 without complaint.
It is a lightweight, functional and good looking piece of gear. Perfect as a mid layer, or an around town jacket. She also likes to sport the Goat. At 5'7" 110 pounds, size S works well for her (she can be a small or a medium). It has taken the top spot in her puffy collection.If they had more colors, I would be in big trouble.
While this is a good pant (we have happily bought these in the past), the sizing through the line seems to be inconsistent. This year's seem to run small. Last year's 12 fit perfectly (as did the 12 in the store), but when ordered they were way too small. My wife wears these (not a growing kid). A little complicated, but the issue seems to be with Rossi production standards. When they work, they are a good choice, but 3 stars for size issues.
110, don't let a shop force you to buy the wider brake.
Pro has an adjustable toe height.
The 130 Marker brake also works with the Pro though. Just have to buy separately.
I have skied Langes for years, and have always been impressed with these boots. The fit is great, the performance outstanding and the hardware is durable (I have never had a buckle break or a cracked shell even with a lot of use (100 plus day seasons). I also have to agree with Griffin on the flex issue - it is all too common to see flex claims that don't stand up. These are a true 130. I cannot comment on warmth, because I always use a Thermic boot heater.
All of the above being said, boot choice is personal, and a variety of factors (volume, arch height) will dictate your ultimate choice. I have a long, low volume foot with a low arch. I use an aftermarket footbed.
Tough to beat this pole, from the grip to the weight. It is too bad they don't have a few more color options, and it would be nice if they could include powder baskets as an option (I realize this is billed as race pole, but lots of folks use these for powder skiing).
At your size and weight the 173 would seem to be a more versatile choice. At 6'1" 180 I ski a 183. Strong skiers I ski with who are close to your size ski the 173. It is a very stable ski, so there should be no issue in that regard.
This ski is the evolution of the AC 4/40 - in a much user friendly version. The primary strength is on the groomers and it rails like a race ski on the groomers. I think the "all mountain" mantra may be a bit overdone - if there is a more than a few inches of snow, you are going to want to reach for some real powder boards. But, they are quick in the bumps and great in the trees a few days after a storm. Not that long ago 84 underfoot was big - now its narrow. But, this would be a great eastern one ski quiver. At 6'1" 180 I ski the 181 cm.
I got my Dad this as a gift, and he loves it. He plows in it, chops wood in it, uses it as a base layer and hangs out in it. Looks great, functions just as well.
The 184 is very quick edge to edge and nimble. I ski them in the trees all the time. The longer versions are probably a bit too much work.
The 184 will be a way more versatile choice.
Strongly recommend the 183, especially for Telluride where you are going to ski a lot of chalky snow and bumps. I am your size, plus 15 pounds. I ski Utah and have never felt the 183 was not enough ski, and I have skied the 193. Think of the Starirs, Plunge, Bushwhacker days after a storm - something a little more nimble is better. Plus, you can actually ski that size in New England.
