Anybody know how much these weigh?
Anybody know how much these weigh?
Thinking about getting these for my pow ski this winter.
Can anybody think of any reason not to? Besides from price and a little extra weight, they seem like the most bomber option out there. Am I missing anything?
Any thoughts on the mounting point? Just bought a pair of 192s and wondering if I can go forward of recommended at all. Seems like it gives you a ton of tip on that line.
The ABS vario base unit comes in both Small and Large. Which size is for sale here?
Going to be using this ski as a mostly inbounds/sidecountry ski aimed at skiing pow and dropping some decent size airs. What kind of beta do you all have on mounting position? I've heard +3 might ski short, but thinking I might want that extra tail when dropping cliffs. Also, does the new graphic run into the discrepencies on where the mounting points fall like last year's model did?
At 6'1'' and 185 lbs. is the 188 going to be too short? Skiing Line Sir Francis Bacons right now (182) and they feel about right, if not a touch short. Everybody says the S7s ski short, I'm just wondering how short.
How does it feel when you wear this under a backpack? Can you feel the backpack squeezing the tube against your back when you cinch your pack tight?
It sounds like this pack is pretty short and maybe not reccomended for taller guys? Anybody in the 6'1" range have any experience with this pack? Looking for something that is going to fit snugly and not flop around on the way down.
My hand measures about 8.2 inches. The Hestra Seth Morrisons fits well in a size 9. What size would you reccomend for this glove?
So I finally got my SFBs mounted with some dukes. Had them out in some variable conditions this weekend and thought they handled it all well. From pockets of powder on the groomers to 8 inches of fresh behind the ropes to skied out crud, they felt smooth and in control at all times. When really trying to carve and make a quick powerful turn on the hard stuff you can feel them want to give a little, but they never felt overly soft or sloppy. I would highly reccomend these as an everyday powder oriented ski. Unless you really want to crank some super G turns down ice packed runs, these are your skis.
Perfect balance between size, weight, and capabilities. Not too big or heavy but not flimsy either and can move a TON of snow quickly. Square handle is a great innovation and make reassembly easy and quick for when it counts. Highly reccomended!
I know these lenses are interchangable, but I've heard its impossible to swap lenses. How difficult is it really? Are you liable to do damage to the lenses while trying to change them out?
I am picking up the BD Covert AvaLung pack. I was wondering if this would fit into the pack's designated shovel pocket....
If I am mounting these on a pair of Line Sir Francis Bacons that are 115 at the waist, do I need to upgrade the brake or can they be adjusted (read: bent) slightly to accomodate the extra 5mm?
I am 6'1'' 175 lbs and a 8.5-9/10 skier. I enjoy skiing fast and aggressively. On my resort skis, I am currently at a 10 DIN but that is just for everyday cruising and small resort jumps. I will be setting these up on some fat skis for touring this year and plan on hitting some decent sized cliffs and backcountry booters. I will obviously be cranking my DIN up for these instances but am not sure to what point. Any advice on whether I will need the increased DIN of the dukes or will the Barons do the job?
I'm looking at these skis for a backcountry touring setup with some dukes. Will use them for CO backcountry as well as deep resort days. Is this a good choice? Some concerns are:a)A/T binding will rip out of wood coreb) Ski is too soft for variable conditions in BCc) 182 may be too short (6'1'' 180; strong all around skier)Any help would be greatly appreciated as well as other possible reccomendations.
For willie2272186:I saw in an earlier question you said you chose the Line Sir Francis Bacons over these skis. This is exactly the two pairs of skis I am trying to choose between. Could you possibly elaborate on the differences for me. I am 6'1'' 175 and looking to use these as an A/T setup for backcountry touring and deep resort days. Thanks for the help. Any other reccomendations would also be appreciated.
