Smile Reverse Reverse Revolution

So I just bought my first pair of skis in 20 years. I hadn't really had a desire to ski since I started boarding, but the new fun shape skis really got me excited to try again. After dropping coin on skis boots and the whole nines plus a new board this season the spending urge has hit me hard again. Fuck you lib tech...

Why, You went and made a reverse camber reverse sidecut twin...
Waist Width (cm): 30.5
Nose Width (cm): 28.8
Tail Width (cm): 28.8
I'm drooling and counting my pennies.

The Banana Hammock... I think you get a free thong too.
Lib Technologies 07/08



I'm drooling, and here's a pic of my new skis. Mine are still getting pressed, can't wait to get my hands on them. Mine will look like the ones on the left.
185cm 124,136,131


Thanks for indulging my boredom. cheers

I hope you are mounting those with AT bindings and not regular alpine ones. Otherwise, sweeeeeet!

From what I hear about the reverse/reverse design is that you are supposed to be able to ride them by keeping weight to the center and still get good float. From reviews I've read you don't get back seat like a normal pow board. Well see, but that's what intrigues me about this design. With the center stance you would have the same advantage riding switch in pow. I would love to get a demo ride first too, but am guessing it will be hard to find anyone demoing them, well see.

As far as AT binders killclimbz, I'm still debating. I know it would be a shame not too, but I'm mainly planning on riding them at Taos. I figure when I'm in the BC or slackcountry I'm going to want to be on my board.

Those are reverse camber ski's right? Like Spatulas? Man I wouldn't even consider (if I skied) taking a pair of ski's like that out at the resort. Especially Taos. As much as they like to brag about not allowing snowboarding, they don't really get that much snow anyway. I would just hit the bc around there. I have heard some fantastic things about it. Touring above treeline, looking out over the desert etc...

I know , but I'm thinking I'll put 5 days a year on these when there's a dump that's localized on Taos. I don't plan on turning completely to the dark side.

I have been looking at the new Marker Duke, but they are spendy. I figure I'll just boot pack Kachina and save my true BC days for the board. I did consider throwing a split kit on those skis and clipping them together at the top.

Hahaha, funny.

Aside, don't get Dukes, waaaay too heavy and way too overkill. The Fritschi Freeride or Naxo NX 21 are plenty bomber to do the job. Unless you are frequently hucking 60ft cliffs, then get the Duke.

Don't scrape off your "Free Taos" bumpersticker to go.

Reverse camber boards you can ride centered because of how you flex the rocker in it, is how much effective edge you have. ON a side note the Banana Tech Lib uses rides rather wack, but the K2 Gyrator with the tip to tail Rocker is tits!
