Basically a revamped version of on of our all time favorite skis, the Mojo 90, the Oblivion is a versatile all mountain park ski that will handle just about anything you put in front of it. This ski has PNP rocker for increased performance in powder and while doing butters in the park. These are 90mm at the waist, so they would make for an awesome park ski. The Oblivion is super versatile though so if the park isn't your thing, these carve like race skis, and shred the shallow pow quite well.

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.

Expert Binding Choices: Some of the binding options (i.e. the Head GTO 15) available for this ski have high din ranges that start at 8 or 9. A very small percentage of skiers will be suitable for these bindings. If you know that you usually set your din at 8 or above, you are in the clear for a high din binding. Otherwise, those bindings are for EXPERT SKIERS ONLY!

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.

Speed: Very Fast: Skiing at this speed means keeping up with the best skiers on the mountain, while still maintaining control.

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.

Highly Transparent UHM Base: A nifty looking and lightning quick base.

Twin tip skis: are where its at these days. Their versatility allows you to ski powder in the morning, bumps at midday, and session the park in the afternoon. The turned up tail is also optimal for skiing backwards (switch), but for most people, it just looks cool.

Park N Pipe Rocker: Tip and tail rise with regular camber underfoot. PNP gives the ski a significant amount of pop and energy for boosting tricks. 30% rocker. 70% camber.

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.

ISS Independent Suspension System: Elastomeric vibration killers located in the tip, tail and underfoot. The elastomers quiet the vibrations that are commonly associated with rockered skis. Underfoot, the vibrations are dampened to provide the skier with a smooth ride.

Product Questions

Great thanks, I may as well chuck a binding on them then. How far back from center is the manufacturers mount on the 181s? Also can I need to specify to fit boot size 315mm.

are the salmon z12 bindings available to be shipped to Australia if you buy them with a pair of skis that are available to Australia?
-6
Hi there, how much would these cost shipped to New Zealand in NZD? Think they might put me just over the tax threshold.

Excellent skiReview by jarmo_climb

Initially it felt a bit soft and floppy but was really surprised with how stable this ski was when opened up. I bought this as an upgrade from a mojo 90. Adding some rocker to the mojo models provides a really playful, easy to ride ski that holds up well to being pushed harder. Looking forward to trying it in some fresh. (Posted on 6/27/2015)
