Icelantic Gypsy SKNY Alpine Skis
Closeouts. Icelantic's Gypsy SKNY alpine skis are a remake of the company's popular Gypsy but with a skinnier 99mm waist. They eat up fresh snow with ease, and the rockered profile and springy poplar core provide stability along with a playful, lively feel.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Bugdunker from California on Friday, January 27, 2017Only had these things on the frontside once so far, but they were nice! Coming off of some all mountain skis that were built for lightness vs. stability, these bad boys busted through the crud, while still making quick turns, when needed. The powder was pretty cinsolidated, so I didn't get to make many turns in the fluff but in the crud, where there was some depth, turns came pretty easy. I am heavy for my height (5' 9"), so I went with 180s: perfect call! These things are nearly symtrical, so mounting puts my boot center a good 4" forward on the ski than my previous 177 all mountains. This made quite a bit less tip out in front; coupled with the rocker, there was quite a bit less ski to turn, than my 177s. I was looking for a frontside carver to be in the bag of tricks and these really didn't disappoint. Looking forward to getting these in some softer, deeper powder, but I am totally happy with there frontside performance, thus far.
