I love them. They glide, are light and climb just great. The glue is fine but can be dramatically improved by putting on some gold label at the tip and tail and just working the snow and moisture off by rubbing them on my ski pants also does the trick to get several laps in. I agree with Stano that they are incredibly fast skins out of the box . Great durability for me, roughly 100 days on them and still going strong. I have tried BD mohair, mohair mix, Sportiva skins. My favorite skins so far.

I purchased these skis last season as recreational racer and long distance driver. I was pleasantly surprised when they came in 20 grams or so lighter than posted on the Sportiva site. I had been using a Black Diamond Stigma 167 (similar specs but slightly heavier) and was hoping to get a nice rockered tip but more stiffness and performance. I was very underwhelmed by these skis in my 5-6 outings! I loved the specs but hated skiing them. They felt too soft and generally unresponsive. I also don’t care...

Terrific piolet. I was very impressed with the performance, weight and feel of this axe for late season trip to the Tetons this past season. Effective and useful! The weight advantage made bringing it a no brainer for technical sections. Time will be the judge of durabilty and overall value but great so far.

I would love some feedback on this binding for mounting on a more traditional powder board (lightweight carbon but over 100mm in the waist). I use and love race bindings on my small skis but have yet to cross over to mounting up a powder board with these. It is my understanding that the toe piece might be the "weakest" link and matching a dynafit radical toe could be an interesting option. Any guidance on using these on larger skis for powder days?
