I have the 14s and 16s... the 14s toe piece scares me sometimes (releases early) so if you are a hard skier pay a little more and get these... my 4 roommates and I have these bindings and nobody has broken a pair yet... a tough feat for our house as everyone skis like a mad man. definitely worth the cost.

Got the 175s and I am 5'9" and 155 lbs they were fun but too short... got the 185s... perfect! The reverse camber is sweet and they're huge obviously, so you never sink. I mounted mine true center and yes you can ride switch pow if you do that! Love the graphics, held up all season (had about 15-20 days on them) and aren't too expensive. I like them more than comparable models. (rode the K2 hellbent and the EP pros both were too soft).

Absolutely brilliant when there is 18+ inches of freshies! Skied them 3 days at Silverton Mt. with 39 fresh inches... made several mistakes such as getting too far forward/top heavy off a cliff, when i landed the ski literally forced me back into the right position and i skied right out. The spatula cut along with the huge rocker means you DO NOT nose dive or sink... I rode the 189s and I am 5'9" and 155lbs and they were completely manageable but if you are my size and in trees get the 179s because they will be just as stable and even easier to turn. A+ K2!

The Lizzies make me love skiing even more. They are extremely soft and almost symmetrical, hence why they are EP's park ski but the width makes them an absolute ball in powder as well... the short length makes skiing powder in trees pure heaven. Oddly enough, I like them best in powder trees as I was saying... it the park they are good for jibbing and small jumps but when you hit large jumps (55+foot gaps) the short length and soft flex play against you. Obviously, they aren't great on hardpack/ice but they are do-able and they are wonderful in moguls... short easy to turn and again the noodle flex takes so much of the bump from the bumps.

Im 5'9" and 155lbs... I would say if you are any larger than me don't get them... they're just not long enough or stiff enough... if you're my size and smaller... you won't regret this purchase.

Since it's the "Rocco" option I wasn't expecting much as it is Oakley's cheapest/entry level pants... I got the lava design in the pants and jacket to have a matching suit and wow. I have 4 pairs of Oakley pants and it seems they do not correlate price and performace. Although it is the cheapest I've purchased from oakley it is the same quality as the most expensive... good insulation, fleece pockets, waterproofing, leg gaiters, etc... I would HIGHLY recommend these pants to anyone. NOTE** It is "loose" fit though so buyer beware they generally run one size bigger than claimed... ** ALSO, these pants DO NOT have a waist tab set for adjustments so be prepared to use a belt if you order true to your size or larger... **

got the matte white in medium. seems true to size, comfy, warm but vents well when hot out, has lasted hit after hit (structurally that is) and the audio sound is so crisp. i love the on/off button mid-way down the head phone cord...it allows you to hit a button and the sounds goes off. as you know, this is very handy when someone starts conversation with you and you dont have to roll down the volume or take out the actual ipod to shut press pause. my bern helmets (baker and macon) dont have this feature on the audio so it is a plus worth mentioning if you're trying to pick a helmet. the only thing is my left speaker quit working...but i did use the helmet around 50 days and bounced my head off the ground often in the park.

As one other person claimed...this helmet IS shaped for the round/spheric head. however, i dont understand leaving a negative review for the shape of articles of clothing...try the bern baker/muse for the more elongated/elliptical head.beyond that...this helmet looks pretty cool, it's unique, and indestructible. In case you are not on the know, many helmets are "one shot protection" and then they're trash. bern has a "hardhat" design meaning you can punish this helmet fall after fall. Very practical for hard charges, park rats, and for people trying to improve who crash often. cheap, attractive, practical....what else can you ask from a helmet?

I had the old troublemakers as well (with the 112-78-102 dimensions) and expected just another park ski. The new dimensions and flex make them a winner all-mountain ski with an advantage over other all mountains skis since they also excel in the park. They bust through most crud well and do fine in 6-10 inches of fresh snow, but fail beyond that. Icy conditions they are pretty average. good choice for the resort lover who occasionally dips into the park, and of course, you always have the option of skiing switch.

Styley, cheap, warm, waterproof, lots of tech/nice pockets for Ipod, wallet, etc... It runs baggy so size down if you want it to 'fit' only worry is if you ski trees. already have 3 tears in mine from small twigs and branches...fabric is not real tough. more of a stylish park/resort skier jacket that a bomber tree coat.

SO CLOSE, but booooooo!

The skis are awesome fun. Great one quiver ski but then I snapped them right behind my rear binding landing a front flip. They are this years!!! with about 20-30 days on them and Volkl would NOT warranty them, it pisses me off sooooooo bad when companys do not stand behind their product. I didnt even fall or land awkwardly.

Buyer beware. You may lose a few hundreed bucks. If you ski hard. Stear clear.

Review Title
5 5

85% of the time (unless the pow is greater than 3 feet, then the huge pow skis get the nod) I rock my hazmats...Im 5'9" and 150lbs. Last year i rocked the 181s this year the 186s...they are amazing. Incredible versatility. I choose to center mount mine because i do enjoy riding switch 50% of the time. They do well in all conditions. For some reason, I can spin them switch better than any ski I have ridden before...even my park specific center mounted (Scott P3s (178cm) and Rossignol S3 (180cm)) skis...They also have the most unique flex...I wouldn't describe it as a stiff or a soft ski...the bamboo core puts the flex on the in between and is like no other ski I have ridden. Also, something I have not found to be true of other smaller companies (4frnt, ninthward, and Line<--who is now huge thanks to K2) The skis hold up. they dont de-laminate and break...they are durable. they do chip on the topsheet. I have given good reviews to other skis I ride and there are many great skis on the market, but it is my opinion this ski takes the top. Thanks Liberty!

Great visions, so wide and clear. The style is unlike any other and I have never had them fog. Negatives are the price (but they are cheap here :) ) and the durability (I have broken two pair of lens wrecking in the park) other than that they are perfect. Even with that into account I have a few pairs of these and it is all i will wear. They fit well with my Giro, Bern, and Smith helmet as well. Thanks Oakley.PS besure to check the oakley lens description and get what you need...people like my father have one quiver goggle style...he rocks the persimmon all the time...when it's bright out i cant handle them...gotta have a few choices :) In comparison (for those wanting a little more information) I also have Dragon DX goggles, Scott Alibi Limited editions and 2 pairs of spys. The crowbars top them all. I would rank the Dragons in 2nd place.

Really solid
5 5

I used the P3s as my go to park ski this last season (08-09). I uploaded a couple pictures as well. Check em out. Anywho, The P3 is very stiff and stable for a park ski, making it fun all over the mountain. Which I personally love. If your on larger features or a heavier person it is wonderful, smaller jibs can be a pain do to the stiffness of the ski. It is very poppy. It handles crud very well. obviously, with a 118mm shovel (ive got the 178s) it isn't a powder hound but i did use it in 6-9 inches of powder several days with no issues, and i was at true center mount. The biggest plus to this ski, DURABILITY. I destroyed several pairs of skis this last season, I couldn't break these things. the topsheet is indestructable as well. AND it didnt seem to lose it's pop like other cores do after 20 days of hard park riding. If this is your only ski and you live out west I'd pass and get something a little wider underfoot. If this is the ski you're rocking all the time except deep powder days...go for it.
