Are the Mohair skins more prone to getting soaked and wet in warm conditions, in comparison to the mohair/nylon mix version?
About how many skin cleaning cycles of a pair of skins would this bottle last for?
How do these compare to the Dynafit Blacklight Pro, the Wayback 80, or the Atomic UL 78? The specs of all of these look very similar. Is it fair to say that all skis in this width and weight category are relatively stiff, due to the lightweight carbon material? In your experience, does the stiffer flex impact performance in powder and if yes, how so exactly? Thanks in advance.
My weight 180 pounds, advanced skier, skiing style not fast, but I want to be able to make charge hard to make turns in tough snow as well as ski couloirs etc. No free-riding, but minor jumps (a foot or so) on groomed slopes, moguls, etc. Is there a chance that I will "outgrow" the 10 DIN setting and should I go with the slightly heavier C-Raider 12 for that reason, or will I safely stay below the max setting of 10 of the Crest 10?
I don't see the Backlight 80 on you site, it that because it's too similar to the Backlight Pro? The 80 seems to be minimally heavier, has different materials, and fits within the other widths of the Dynafit Backlight series. Is the Backlight Pro more race-oriented in the sense that it will be more fragile / less durable? Are there any (downhill) skiing characteristics other than the weight that are different between the Pro and the rest of the Backlight series?
