North Carolina and Utah
where are they made?
7.5 lbs or 3400 grams
How much do they weigh, the 168's?
These are not as easy as you would think to install. When mounted on the roof of a midsize car with a wide stance snowboard set-up, you have to mount the bars far apart. When they are far apart the roof is not flat and the rectangular load bars are not parallel to the roof. When adding the board rack they do not stand straight up and angle away from each other. They look silly. Yakima load bars are round and this problem would not occur.
I mounted the bindings 1/2 way between park and downhill. They are lightweight, carve well, spin well and do not grab on the boxes/rails. They stay on top of powder. I have looked long and far for lightweight park/downhill skiis. I fell in love with light skiis last year with SPK's, but they did not float well downhill off-piste. I love the combo of light-weight, mid-fat, twin tip, shorter (166), mid-mounted, sintered base skiis.
