Yes, the length is good for you, but I am not sure if you really want the Volkl Ledge. I would say the Dynastarr Troublemakers are better. But if you want to buy new skis becuase of the length and really want these your welcome. Otherwise, I'd look for something different.
I have tried these skis a couple of times and they are very heavy. For me thats a negative, cus i like playful skis. Also its not very good at groomers, but i can give it cred for spin and stability in air. Because it is a center mounted ski I feel like you have 100% control spinning jumps, which is important and the weight doesent really matter in air... I would say Its not a very good all-mountain ski, but if you want a park ski, but want to be able to ski a little bit all-mountain I would go for these, otherwise look at: Armada Ar6 , Line Anthem, k2 extreme, Line Blend or if you like to try something new: Armada Alpha 1 :=) This was my opinion...
I have owned these skis for a while now, so I figured it was time to write a review.
The Armada AR6 is a good, versatile ski. It does good in the park and grooms, but also does fine in the powder. I have used these skis on rails a whole lot and it seems durable. No serious damage at all... The S7 base is GREAT! I would guess its the strongest, most durable base on the marked today and the edges seems to be holding together alright.
The Armada Ar6's are light and quite soft skis, which suits me perfectly. I would say its a fun, playful ski you can use not only in the park, but all over the mountain.
I'd say Look Px12 Jib would work great with these skis :) My opinion...
The light Camo print is sooo steeze in the slope! Here is a picture of Keven Pearce with it: http://formatmag.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/02/npburton3.jpg
SICK! If you need a jacket I really suggest this!
The Special Blend Brigade Snowboard Jacket is my favorite! It is really waterproof and breatable with 2 large chest-pockets and 2 smaller hand-pockets. It comes in cool colors and I love the powder skirt. This jacket has great venting and has a quite large fit as I like it! If you dont like your jackets big and baggy go with a smaller size.
Bottom line: The Special Blend Brigade Snowboard Jacket - Men's is a warm, cool snowboard jacket! The best if you ask me.
Does the Blood Red have the same outer-material as the Kelp?
This pant is GREAT! It has 10k waterproof rating and 10000g breathable rating! The Burton Franchise Pant is really cool and great colors! This has a mid-baggy to normal fit and you have alot of room to move in! If they are too big in the waist you can wear a belt because it has loops. It has OK venting and ALOT of BIG pockets! REALLY NICE PANT FOR SKIING/SNOWBOARDING!
This would be so cool wearing down the slopes! ;D You'll truly look unique, Pixelated Waterfall Print of course! If your thinking about buying it I suggest you do! And also functional:
10k waterproof rating!!! You wont get wet in this my friend! My tip: BUY!
Try this pant with the Burton AK 2L Jussi Anorak - Men's, would be sick! (this is not really a question) Touch the sky color of course!
This helmet is quite small and the Eg2 is HUGE so the combination is perfect! you might have to wear the goggles a bit low, but if the goggle fits with a helmet this is it! Hope it helped!
Everyone of these helmets costs 99,95$ So I dont quite know what you are talking about...
You'd be warm enough with a hoody or something undeneath, but not a t-shirt in the winter. This jacket has quite low breathablity and waterproofness so I would actually recommend another jacket for snowboarding/skiing if you plan to ski alot in slushy weather and wet powder. If you keep in the slopes this jacket will be great. And In backcountry aswell, if its not too hot outside and the snow start melting.
This ski is made for powder skiing. It has a quite fat underfoot so you'll float on the powder. I was surprised by the tail. Its bigger than other big-mountain skis so you'll definitely not have a problem landing switch after a huge drop in the deep powder! This ski has a cool asian design, so If you're looking for a powder-oriented big-mountain freeride ski, Why the hell not?!
Lib Technologies NAS Freeride Alpine Ski is a great fatty ski for powder riding! With a 98mm-103mm underfoot (depends on length) you will definitely not have a problem with sinking in the powder. These skis have a sick design and they are a twintip ski so you will not have a problem landing switch after a truckdriver 900 of a huge cliff in the powder. For me these skis are too expensive, but if your looking Powder/freeride ski that looks sick go for this Lib!
This is a classic Oakley goggle! Really cool design and great lenses of cource! This goggle comes in so many different colors, which is unusual for Oakley! Really a great goggle to a good price!
This ski is definitely a ski made for powder! It has an HUGE underfoot for powder skiing, and it is also a twintip ski so you can drop from the cliffs and land switch in the deep powder. I would really recommend this ski for powder skiing and big-mountain, but if your looking for a ski that can do it all this is not it. 4 star powder ski! (Not the best on the market)
