Although the "Wallrider" looks and sounds like a dedicated park ski, the tip and tail rocker with a 85mm waist means it is a playful all mountain ski to contend with anything out there. It is on the narrow end of the scale so it skis best on groomers but powder and crud are no issue. Some skiers do use this as a park ski, which actually does quite well with its durability and quick turning characteristics, but please do this ski some justice, and get some powder under it! There are a variety of colors to choose from so your bound to find a style you like.

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.

Skier Ability: Intermediate to Advanced: Sometimes these skiers are intermediate, and on a good day, they are advanced, but hard to commit to one level. They can ski most places on the mountain, sometimes with a little difficulty, but always making it down without crying and calling ski patrol.

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.

Cap Construction: The topsheet of this ski drapes over the edge to form a clean and rounded finish to the side of the ski. This style of construction adds some torsional rigidity, and helps reduce topsheet chipping when the skis hit each other.

Sintered Base: The material used for the base is harder, and therefore more durable than other options (Extruded). This material should be waxed regularly for best performance.

Textured Surface: Ideal for repelling wear and tear on the skis surface. Textured ski surfaces (aka snakeskin topsheet) are rough surfaces to the ski that hide or repel scratches keep your skis look new long after they are not. Originally designed for rental skis for obvious reasons, this surface is now available on a wide variety of retail skis as well since everyone likes their skis to look nice.

Tip Rocker: This refers to the early rising of the tip to get the ski on top of the soft snow, rather than pushing through it. When the skis are held with the bases together, it will look like the tips are bent, and spread away from eachother. Tip rocker also helps skiers pivot the skis, making tight trees remarkably easy, and gives the ski a surf-like feel.

Tail Rocker: Just like Tip rocker, but in the tail, this feature allows the tails of the skis to release easier from the turn to give the skier the ability to turn the skis quicker in tight spots. It also allows skiers to dump speed by forcing the tails out and sliding sideways. The effective edge is reduced because of the tail rocker, so the skis will also be easier to control when forced to ski on the groomed slopes.

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.

NOT RECOMMENDED FOR PARKReview by SeadogTTM

Decent for all mountain, but just fell apart in the park, I've only been out 4-5 times this season and I have a broken tip and a bunch of gouges in the base, recommended for people who don't visit the park that often but drop by everyonce in a while (Posted on 2/8/2015)

Wallrider Skis and Salomon bindingsReview by moirsmate

A bargain I could not resist in far away Australia. Skis performed as stated - although labelled Wallrider I found them a great all mountain ski in Australia and New Zealand snow conditions. The service was fantastic - skis delivered in 5 days to Sydney and ultra bargain courier cost. (Posted on 10/16/2014)

Amazing pair of skis! After renting all the time, I decided to buy my first ski's and this was the one I went for. The day after I got the skis by post I went up to the slopes and may I say I improved a lot in that day just by having a good pair of ski's. M jumps, my technique, my everything just improved! Would recommend highly 10/10 (Posted on 8/5/2014)
