Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was excited to try the Royale after reading great reviews about this ski from Powder mag. and other sources. after putting some time on these in varies conditions from Ice to powder I came away dissapointed. In powder they float and surf good, very fun. The downfall is when the crud starts to setup and get hard they get tossed around pretty bad. On anything soft they carve and hold an edge very well, but on anything hard they get real skeetchy fast and will not hold an edge at all, in comparison both the line Ep pro which is a noodle and the k2 hellbent are much better skis on the groomers and anything hard. But i must say they are very stable at speed, i found no speed limit with them. good skis but there are a lot better out there.

After skiing the EP PRO and New Hellbent as my daily drivers for the last few years, (yes I like and can ride fat skis everywhere) I was looking for a fat ski that was ski able in 2 day old sierra cement) not only do they float like a dream, bust through the thickest chopped up powder you can find, are quicker in tight tree's then both the Ep pro's and Hellbents, but the will rail groomers at mach speed without flapping all over the place. Not to mention you can even spin them in the air because there very light for there size. The Perfect ski for someone who loves fat skis.

Worst excuse for a boot I have ever seen, after having them heat molded they fit like a tight glove for ABOUT 5 DAYS, after skiing them very hard for about ten days they all ready packed out about a size and when ever landing hard off jumps the front buckle would pop open from the whole boot flexing so much, If you charge, save yourself the frustration and get a real boot. Don't listen to people who get PAID to say they can't ski the way they do without them. Thats BULL.

After the riding Sir Frances Bacons for over 2 years I switched over to the E.P. Pro's for more float and was blown away by the first run. They CARVE RAILS on anything but full on ice and blow bacon's away on groomers. They are super soft in the tips and tails but STIFF under foot so when you roll them on edge they just carve away. Of course that is just a plus to there real purpose " slaying powder" they are so surfy and quick in the tree's if you can fit your soulders between they won't hold you back. The steeper and deeper the better. I have not had any issues with the soft tails at all landing drops up to 15' or so you just have to stay centered and they land them selfs. My only complaint is when our wet heavy sierra cement gets really chopped up you have to stay foreword and drive them or else you may get beat up by the softness of the tips.
