These things are great. A dream on the uphill, super light for an 85mm waist ski, kick turn well, break trail reasonably well, sidehill well -- I have basically no complaints. The downhill is compromised if you're used to heavier skis but my understanding is they're better than most in their weight class. They're good enough for me except in the worst snow conditions where my friends on beefier skis are struggling, too. Bought for ski mountaineering missions and they seem perfect for that job so far!

I've murdered these things in some pretty disgusting ski mountaineering conditions including 4,000' of chicken heads from the summit of Mt. Hood. I also did some laps off a kicker with them (totally not designed for this) on a city snow day. Thought I would snap them in half but they're good as new. I'd say they're pretty dang durable.
