Re: Sbounds...leathers

That would be outstanding....Like the old 109's anyway just need them longer....Remember up on Wheelock Mountain just after they logged it....(old Growth) gawd that was nature at it's best....Telesven and I headed them down after a short ski in...(about 400 verts)....Then...1300 down.....Found openi...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Have skied skis with the same dimensions and what should be more the less the same, isn't...it's the length....The old Rebound is to short at 179 and a lot better at 189....When I make hasty decisions it usually a couple of shots a few skis and then Telekid gets the newish skis....Outtabounds and Bo...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Get a kick out of the Asnes thread....Decades back I rode 220 Asnes for a few years....Turning was not required....All we wanted was speed and the 220's well tarred and waxed were pretty good back then...Then....Telewheels trying to keep up with us.....shot by with a new offering the e99...With 5-6 ...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

As I get even older.....riding becomes more into the mix.....Riding is when your extended....I think the people who hated skinnies and became Alpine Telemarkers called it poodling....What it means is that your 205 skinnies were elongated and the seven foot length becomes 8-9 feet and if your on long...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Riding skinnies is a blast!.....Shock absorbers (big camber) is the cream made with a dollop of Maple Syrup on chocolate pudding....Fischer makes skis with a softness that allows one to play with that camber while riding....Drop into a dip and weigh both skis down....Up you come with the camber rele...

Re: Sbounds...leathers

Slicing....Hot knife and butter....Doing the deed on 99's and 109's is out and out slicing....Bigger S Bounds ride higher and are not the slicing machines that the skinnier skis are....Riding higher makes for easier turns if that's your thing...With skinnies however there is an entirely different dy...

Sbounds...leathers

Broad statement...S bounds are decent downhill skis and at best mediocre at the cc level...Seeing that most of the KTB madness is about heading off to get the goods...its important to cruise easily in the sticks...E 109's and e99's get that done and are good on the down as well....Far as nnn they le...
