Has anyone got the specs (construction, lengths, sidecuts, radiusses) of the 2020 Rossignol React pist skis? Or a link to an online catalogue maybe?
React R8 TI 124/73/110 14meters at 176 (160, 168, 176 and 182) tech LCT TI + Flex tip, Structure MinicapSidewall (not sure what that is) poplar core (red and black ski)
React R8 HP 127/73/111 [email protected] (156,163,170,177), tech LCT TI + Flex tip, Structure MinicapSidewall Carbon alloy/poplar core (yellow and black ski )
React R6 seems to be the same as above but without the alloy. carbon/poplar core
React R4123/74/109 [email protected] 146,54,62 and 170 looks to be a cap ski, carbon/poplar.

It is not 1600 grams light but lighter than the outgoing model. I would say low 2000gr range. As far as more anatomical that really depends on the foot. The liner is all new and the toe box is much larger.
For me, that larger toe box is good news, should I move in that direction. The previous version fit me fine except seemed to have no space for my toes - more than any other comparable boot I tried on.

Did you happen to notice if that much larger toe box is much larger as in with a blunt rounded shape bottom of an egg and not the elongated cone shape of the eggs top?
Something I'd desparately like to see Tecnica improve on of the 18/19 Zero G boots which are great across the metatarsals but quickly goes south from there, much too pointy narrowing at the front:(

Anything on the Volkl Mantra 102?

A friend is kind of a life-long Volkl guy, and these just might be the perfect step up from his RTM 84s.

Any confirmation on a Kendo 92, in addition to the new Kendo 88? It's in their 19-20 catalogue. @Philpug

Tried to get on these at Copper...none were available. Rep could not make it to the Mammoth show due to weather and road closures. These are priority skis for me at Snowbasin this week.

I plan on skiing my 2015 Kenjas until they fall apart or otherwise delaminate but I was wondering how the 2020 Kenja 88 compared to my older model. What I like about my 2015 is it's prowess in hard pack but still versatile. I know I'll eventually have to replace them but would love to replace them to something somewhat similar.

I owned the 2016s and the 2020s ARE better, still a stiff, serious ski with a bit more playful side to it and a touch easier in soft chop and crud. They were a HOOT on the groomers. What I love about the Kenjas is their ease in turn initiation.

Thanks. I actually prefer my 2015's to the 2016's. My 2015's are 87 underfoot and I really like that in regard to the hard pack. I was hoping the 2020's were closer to that aspect of the 2015s. The 2020s sound like a great ski. Can't wait to demo them.

Same feeling as the BP88, quicker to edge. Fun ski! Not sure how it would do on serious hard pack, as there was none to be found. But for morning corduroy, they were a ton of fun! SUPER easy to ski, but not whimpy by any stretch. Again, just like the BP88.

Any news on if Oakley figured out their issues with their React goggles and when it's being released?
