Can’t wait to test them… I had my Orions for it seems 8 years… hard to believe it. I have to take a photo of these, they were my first skis and are still in a decent shape. Wow I have to enlighten Google Images with a photo of my old Orions, they deserve it! They never ran away from me, never let me down, and stayed until the end, means until the new ones:) At the end skiing is not about the skis, it is about the skier. Let see if I will find a difference.
