This is updated from a Sneak Peek thread.

So, 99 is the waist and I am sure it will be in the name and since there is some metal in it, so let's just call it the 99Ti at this point. These are not the graphics but I think they will be pretty minimalist like what is pictured. All I can say at this point....well, I really can't say too much...yet. I am not sure what the published dims will be, but the measured ones are 138-99-123 in the 177. There is a bit of rise in the tip, nothing like the Pinnacle 95. and a little in the tail. Flex is extremely balanced.

Fanboys/fangirls of which skis should be excited about these?
You say fangirl, yes there will be women's versions coming, I believe in the first year too. These are definately on the stronger end of the scale, so Bonafide for sure, one of the people who had a lot of say in the Flipcore collection, had a good amount of influence here. Of course the Enforcer was in the sites and this will be create for the skier who finds themselves between sizes there. In spending some time on this last year, this is the ski that a lot of these other skis want to be.

So, more lika a wider iKonic than a Pinnacle right?
The designers of this ski/collection, there will be an 88 and 108 also, also designed the Charger and Ikonic collections too and there is some of those skis DNA in this new ski.

Look forward to hearing your comments about the ski. Hopefully this is the type of ski that will help inject some new excitement for the brand.

I will be holding my full review for a bit. I will say, I think they accomplished what they sought out to do. I am still thinking about @Analisa's question in post #2

Not that I can't answer it but just that it is such an awesome question.
