Sans Rival Ride 13

I had to take off a few days so this was the first ride in 5 days and I was not really with it.

While I was skiing, I was thinking that on any other ski I would be missing passes. My skiing was all over the place and the SR2 just stayed with me. I was early. Freak’n amazing.

This is going to be a hard review to write. I ski really well on this ski but a review that says “The SR2 Rocks” defeats the purpose of what I am trying to do here. I am going to have to go back to some other skis to clear my head before I can write about this ski.

I doubt myself because I think this ski is that good. I am self-conscious because I like everything I ride. The SR2 might be the next level. I date a lot of skis, this girl might be marriage material. I like them all but I might LOVE this ski. Maybe.

    John,

    Did you find some numbers that worked well besides the factory numbers? Bindings?

    Mine was preset to 6.870 jaws 2.537 .763 Slot and 8 degrees. Bindings 29.75"

    Only one set so far. Ski was fast cross sourse but I had to force the turns a little. Will set to factory settings and try again.

    How long will they finance that ski for?

    I'm sure there's a government program that will help u pay for it. They seem to have this finance thing down to an art form. Especially when it involves paying another country. :-)

    Skis are funny. As a friend of mine said recently, "if you guaranteed me that I'd consistently pick up 3-4 buoys from my current average, I'd have my checkbook out in a flash!". They all sound expensive until we start picking up buoys. The other way I look at it is "how" do I get the score. It seems like everytime I get a new ski it may not actually increase my scores right away, but it makes the scores I ski easier, and less taxing on my ever aging body. And anything that extends my ski career, I'm a buyer!

    The really important question is: If I pronounce it properly in French, does that make me cooler or even dorkier?

    You'll always be a dork to us, no matter what. ;)

    Yes, of course, but I was wondering about the *direction*.

    Also, others with less absolute dorkiness might want to know how to pronounce it.

    @Than Bogan it is like Brigitte Bardot. You can say it the French way or wrong way.

    (If you Google it.... I am talking about the young version, no the one that looks like your grandmother)


    @Ed Johnson I am bone stock and see no reason to change

    Went to stock settings, and agree with you. Only difference is I had to move the bindings forward to stop the ski from hunting side to side, waiting for the pullout. This is not a ski for everybody. really likes to be skied aggressively. Also agree it's hard to explain. Like the song, it just screams at me, " Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Fire Away."

    Some guy named Razor something or other sold me a ski for $50 bucks and I instantly picked up my buoy count. Can't wait to see what $1500 gets me. Anyone looking for a nice 67"Elite?
