I'm a 5'11 170lbs fast/fluid/aggressive skier looking for a new daily driver "do everything but pow" ski. I have dedicated pow skis, so I'm looking for these to be able to do everything else (steep bumps, trees, booters, groomers, etc). I'm thinking of going 182 instead of 189 for the maneuverability factor, especially since these are a more traditionally cambered ski compared to a lot of other skis on the market today. Seems to me like the 189 would be a lot to handle in tight spots and bumps, would I be missing out by getting the 182?

I used these for the first time today and I noticed a ton of air blowing around inside the goggles, at times blasting me in the eyeballs. Has anyone else noticed this? I even tried on a buddy's pair to make sure it wasn't just mine and had the same issue. My face and head are extremely average siez/shape, no unusual features. I was not using my helmet today. Is this normal and something I need to get used to? Do I need to wear the goggles tighter to create a better seal? I suppose this helps with regulating fog but my Oakleys never had this issue.

I'm definitely getting this ski but I'm torn between the 184 and 192 -- I already have 182 Czars so I'm worried about quiver overlap if I get the 184, but I also want to use these on days when conditions are less than all-time so I'm concerned that the 192 will be too much ski on anything but the deepest of deep days. I'm 6'0" 170lbs and an expert skier, like to spin and flip into pow -- I'd appreciate some insight from people similar to me in size/ability. Thanks.

I'm about the same size as you guys (6 feet tall, 165 ish lbs) and I mounted progressive with a pair of Marker Dukes and absolutely loved the skis, the rest of my quiver are now wall ornaments. I was really stressed over where to mount (you can see my original question down below that I posted in December) but I'm super happy with my decision. Never had any issues with tip dive in the deepest of the deep once I got up to speed and the longer tail you get by mounting a bit more forward just helps their overall stability.

Can someone with experience comment on mounting these skis forward? I'm hearing a few (1-2) cm in front of the progressive line and I read that Mark Abma skis these 5cm in front of progressive. I am a very aggressive expert skier and I like to charge hard down every type of terrain but one thing I am not willing to do is sacrifice powder performance. I want them to float, bottom line and if mounting forward is going to cause the tips to dive then I'm not interested in doing so.

Warm, attractive, effective and safe. Basically, this helmet is everything that I want in a mate. I wore it on a day when temperatures were in the single digits and my ears have never been warmer. The next day it warmed up so I opened the vents and was good to go. It looks good, it feels good and keeps your head safe so you can be confident while charging lines thru the trees, ripping groomers or going off in the park. I've owned it for a week and I've received more compliments on this helmet than any other piece of gear that I own.
