Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have skied in these bindings a bunch and have never been disappointed!! Whether it was getting hit by a silly person, tripping over a gate, or just being silly, these things ROCK!! Also, I have had the pleasure of testing them on a DIN (German Institute for Standardization), and they test PERFECT!! Treat your knees and buy a pair!

My best days ever have been on these skis.. This POW ski is definitely for the skier that likes his/her tips to point down the hill vs going switch.. However, it isn't necessarily against going switch, which is the beauty of the ski.. Tossed some fun nose butters on these a bunch! I'm no good at landing switch, but I've seen my friends do it on these... haha

Charges hard, holds stable and is also playful and fun.. What a ski!! Vanatage117!

Strongly suggest the Shift binding for these. Warden MNC 13 is a good second option!

The Shift binding is a really special binding.. So much technology, thought, and passion have been put into this beautiful piece of work. Whether you like cruising down groomers and/or trees with the occasional hike up, or hiking up to charge down sweet lines, this is the binding to have..

Some pin bindings may be lighter with similar qualities, HOWEVER, the Shift is not only more durable, but also a MNC (MultiNormCertified) binding. I've been lucky enough to deal with the DIN (German Institute of Standardization), and they test PREFECT, unlike some others.. Save your knee and buy a Shift..

To be honest, this boot is probably my favorite boot EVER!! I have skied in this boot more than 200 times and it just keeps on providing the goods! Lightweight, durable, responsive, stiff backbone, custom shell/liner, and all around radness!! A true 130 All-Mtn boot that will charge as hard or gentle as you want!

I get speechless when I talk about this boot because it's just PERFECT.. It makes walking uphill easy, and skiing down even better.. Heat moldable shell, lightweight, stiff backbone for support, custom & warm liner, range of motion like a hiking shoe, pin toes and heals, ect.. This boot got even better this year with the new liner, new buckles, and rad paint job..

Wana talk durability..? I've skied mine about 175-200 times and they are still skiing strong! And honestly, I bet i could ski them 100 more times and they'd be fine!!

Side point, the walk mode and rockered soles are great if you're looking to hike up hill more or hang around at apres without looking goofy, however, if you don't care about those features, make sure to check out the Hawk Ultra, Prime, or Magna!! Also awesome boots that have most of the same features!!

Talk about and all around JEDI MASTER of skis!! This ski rocks! After trying a bunch of skis with Ti (metal/titanium/whatever), I was amazed at how well this 97 CARBON skied!! It is shaped just like its big cousin (97ti), but is just a bit more forgiving, playful, LIGHT and honestly, FUN! I skied on the 97c more than 70 days this year and no matter what the conditions were, I was stoked and happy!

Warden MNC 13 or Shift would be my suggestion for bindings on these pups!

WOW, talk about one of the most fun and playful skis ever!! At first I didn't know what to expect, BUT after skiing on it in all different lengths I just COULDN'T STOP !! On a nice soft snow day my buddies kept trying new skis and I kept taking laps on these.. Float on pow in the a.m., crush crud in the afternoon, and slash slush in the p.m.. So playful and fun in all types of conditions!!

Also, park/pipe skiing..? YUP!! This is that playful/buttery ski that you can ski pow, then jib around in the park, then hit a couple drops, then pop off all the fun small hits back to the parking lot/bar..

Warden MNC 13 is a good option for these, but if you want to hike a bit, get the SHIFT! Perfect for these!

The 97ti is such a beauty.. This ski is special to me because regardless of which coast, country, or continent you're on, this is one of the best to have in your hands/on your feet.. I've skied it on boiler plate in NH, blower pow in CO, and creamy sauce in CA.. No matter what conditions, you'll be happy. Very lively, respondent, and full of energy kind of ski. Intermediate/Hard chargers, here ya go!!

I loved the Warden MNC on this, but a Shift would work just as well!

Everybody says it, but if somebody were to tell me I could only ski on one pair of skis for the rest of my life, this would be my first choice. We had a lot different conditions at Squaw last year, everything from blower pow to nice firm "Don't fall on this steep ice stuff or you're gonna be hurting". And I found myself on these skis just about every darn day even when we were setting gates..

A true Big MTN ski that floats on blower, carves on groomers (nice GS turns), doesn't chatter at speed, and holds up durability wise (even with a silly boy like me beating on them..). These things are such a special ski!

Shift binding is my first choice, but Warden MNC 13 and STH2 16 are great as well. (STH is WTR binding, check with your local shop to make sure your boot is WTR compatable)

If you're on the east coast or want a more narrow ski, I'd suggest one of the 107s little cousins, the Vantage 97ti, 97carbon, or 90ti!!
