These skis will push you harder than ever before. I rock the 194's and they eat up everything that I throw at them! Plenty of floatation for big days. They kill it in the crud. Oh and have to bomb a groomer to get to your next secret stash, don't worry they ski like a super g ski. I love rocketing past someone on a groomer with these things and then seeming them in the lift line and people always have puzzled look on their face. "So fat, so long, how can they go so fast?!" Your friends will get pissed at you as you burn through the crud. I am becomign redundant. These things straight ROCK!
