Ski reviews are about describing a ski more than judging. THe D3 ARC is one ski that is going to be hard to write about. Hopefully after the next 10 rides the words will come to me.
What I can say is that in the first 9 rides on the ARC I ran equal to or one ball short of to my all time PB 3 times (2 @ 39). That means that I have run 38 on 33% of my rides so far. What this stat misses is that I do not shorten to 38 every ride. I think I have only shortened to 38 4 or 5 times on the D3 ARC. I do not know the actual percentage but the ARC is clearly in MOASS territory.
