HO Omega Max vs Syndicate Omni

Hi All,

I've skied on a 2019 Syndicate Omni and loved it. Now looking for a new ski, either a 21 Omni or the new Omega Max. Anyone ridden both and can give a review?

    The Omega Max isn't available to the first of the year I am told. So it might be hard to find someone who has skied on both.
  • Interesting re: US availability. Omega Max has landed here in Australia and is being demo's by the shops. A few weeks and it will be on the shelves.

    Depends on your weight, speed an line length. I'm 205lb, speed 32-34,15-28 off. Was on a Syndicate Omni 69 - perfect for 30-32 mph but too big for 34+, moved to a 68 Syndicate Pro by accident - improved a lot in buy count, loved this ski, best off site ever but needed to much physical effort. Switched to an 68 Omega- yes much less effort at 34mph but still to much effort for 32 an no better buy count at all. Switched now back to Syndicate Omni 67 and size feels perfect for 34 and light enough for my opening pass at 32.

    It has been such a mild winter out here in BC (Canada) I could be skiing every now and then. It was +6C yesterday and dead calm. Lakes have not frozen this year. Hope to hear they have stock arriving soon.

    Thanks for the heads up @mike_mapple . Good to know they are in production.
    In many cases it does not pay for us Canadians to purchase new direct from the USA. I can purchase the ski from an HO dealer here in Canada for the same sticker price but in Canadian dollars with free shipping to my door. Saves me exchange (minimum 30%), border duties and shipping. I just might have to wait a bit till they receive stock.
