Had a grand old time sliding around on these at A-basin on saturday. They are definitely double camber, but I was able to link up turns no problem after a few runs. I saw arguably in more control than many of the noob snowboarders and skiers flailing about on the white ribbon of death
. Fabianos were as sweet and comfy as ever. Its fun to rock this stuff at the resort, because people have no concept of how you can possibly ski then down hill
. Wish I could have got some footage for you guys but I didn't have anyone to film me.
While I was at Recycle Sports picking up these skis, I also came across a rare gem; a pair of Merrell Supercomps in size 10 that look hardly skied. I don't need a pair of supercomps, I didn't want a pair of supercomps, but the price was right at $19 bucks so I splurged and now I have the most burly boot allowed in smelly kneepad competition rules. Victory will be mine this season! Now I've gotta find a pair of skis to match them for the ultimate retro resort setup. They certainly aren't an XCD boot because they feel like they would tour worse than my plastic scarpa tx with the tec fittings and walk mode.. Anyway they should be something fun to fool around on this season. For some reason I feel like these paired with a more downhill oriented (yet still skinny) telemark ski would absolutely crush moguls...
The fabianos just might be the sexiest boot I have ever seen or skied. Can't wait to take them out into the bc on the Karhus once the real season starts. I need to improve my off piste leather skills.
