Do you often find yourself in a dark alleyway at 2 am nervously anticipating your next drop in to another double kink hand rail? If yes, then this is the ski for you. This responsive and lively ski is great for use on an actual mountain too by upper intermediate to expert skiers and were designed with a perfect full camber side-cut for precise turning and a versatile 84mm waist width. The Township's punk rock graphics will help you feel right at home in the city when you're sliding rails and help bring some flare to the mountains.

Description

Details

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Ideal Target Skier: All Mountain Park Rider: Skiers that go anywhere on the mountain, and still make trips through the terrain park enough to require twin tips, describe these skiers. They are not afraid to skip park sessions to ski deep powder, but are torn sometimes for their love of hitting rails and jumps in the park.

Sandwich Construction (SW): SW means that the sides of the skis are a vertical wall rather the the rounded Cap construction forund on most skis. Since none of the skis material needs to be exerting force maintaining shape at the edges, SW skis are stiffer than their Cap counterparts. Most people find SW skis to be damper, that is more glued to the snow, superior at high speed GS turns and top notch at busting through crud or choppy snow.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

45-90 Degree Sidewall: The sidewall is custom routed to a 45 and 90 degree angle to provide strength for impacts, solid edging power, and helps reduce chipping at the topsheet.

Active Camber: In a world of early rise, rocker, and reverse camber, there still is a need for traditional full camber skis. The edge grip and stability is unmatched on groomed snow. This ski gets maximum edge to the snow, so it helps skiers skiing the firm stuff, or just prefer the 'feel' of traditional camber skis.

We Have Recommended Some Bindings For You: You will notice there is a dropdown menu that says "Ski Bindings" above. These are simply a list of curated bindings we recommend will work best for this particular ski but other bindings will work as well. There are a few factors i.e. brake width, DIN range, ability level that determine an appropriate binding choice, so let us know if you need assistance.

3 Choice Mount Position : The three choices are as follows. Park Mount is where the bindings are closer to dead center on the ski and is best for freeride skiers who want to ski switch a lot of the time. Manufacturer's mount is where the makers of the ski recommend you mount the bindings (usually between park and powder mount). Finally Powder mount is the furthest back on the ski which allows for more tip length and float in powder. If you wish to get more technical on where we mount your skis, please contact customer service.

Topsheet Wear and Tear: Sandwich Sidewall skis may be prone to topsheet chipping even after one day of skiing. This is especially true when skiers are learning (banging the skis together more) or while skiing in the terrain park where there is more impact on the ski while hitting rails and jumps. This is normal cosmetic wear and tear and does not affect the overall performance of the ski.

I have read multiple reviews and some state that this ski is only for the park and never meant to go beyond that, while other differing reviews state that ski can handle the rest of the mountain. Any opinions?

Great twin-tip ski for the valueReview by All-Mountain Skier
Rating
Pros: Fun, easy to turn, while still holds edges on groom, excellent for moguls
Cons: Doesn't cut into icy condition as well as other stiff skis
Location: Mammoth Mountain, California
I bought this ski not for the park since I only do novice level park jumps. But I bought this ski as an all-mountain, twin tips ski to do tricks on groomed runs (i.e., ski backward). This ski is great for the groomed runs, packed powder, and moguls. It turns on a dime and even better than my full-rocker ski Volkl RTM 80. This 169-cm ski skied like a 150-cm ski. So easy to turn that it may cause some trouble for beginner-intermediate skiers. It is only slight lacking RTM 80 on carving and holding edges on icy conditions. Other than that, it holds edges well on groomed runs and can easily negotiate moguls. An added benefit, if you are like me have a bad habit of leaning back when not concentrating, this ski will remind you to lean forward since it is center-mounted. Its tail will give you early warning signs when you are leaning back. It is a very forgiving ski when you are on your poor stand (i.e., leaning back). I like this ski so much that I replaced it for my RTM 80 as my all-mountain ski (BTW. I really like my RTM 80 against other similar skis, but just like this one more now). On the 12-16" fresh powder, it performs better than my RTM 80 and other 80-mm width skis. Of course, it is not as good as the new 90-mm plus all-mountain and >100-mm powder skis on fresh powder. As for a park ski: I did small jumps and trick-skiing on groomed run. So I don't know how well it compares to other park skis. But as an all-mountain ski, this twin tip is a great value for <$200.
