HI All,

Have a pair of really fun all mountain skis in excellent condition with less than 10 days of skiing and no real damage to speak of.

+185cm Cassiar 87 - Foundation (w/ Titanal laminates) - SOLD

These skis all have a little twin on them. I would call them more like a 180cm in actual snow feel.
The Titanal skis are metal construction, weight about 85g per ski more and have a super nice silky ride of bad snow.
These were engineering test skis, that I bought when I worked for DPS.
All ski amazingly well. Slightly stiffer and more responsive than stock, which skew a little more finesse.

Please ping me with any questions.
Marshal

I'm waiting for the Wombat. More my speed. They have a Joey on the way too. Can't want to see that one.

This is a killer deal on these skis. We have a C87 in our demo fleet and it is a damn fun ski. Plus you are not getting production graphics on these, so you will have the only pairs. Extra cool.

His BSL is 303 but he's not a big buy so I think the 185 length is long for him. His powder/spring slush skis are 180 and I'm pretty sure that's as long as he wants to go.

@Philpug — curious how you would rate the 185 Cassiars length wise. To me the 185 is much more like a 180 blizzard, and not like a 187cm. Is that fair in your mind?

Trade both for some SR95's? :)

I have some attack demos around that would pop right into the exiting holes.

Where would these fall between the foundation and alchemist layups?
Pm sent :)
The metal laminate is definitely a smoother, damper feel than foundation, more precise and crisp on edge. I believe they are only 85g per ski heavier, but smooth things out a little better. The alchemist is a more responsive and lively ski. The metal version has similar edge grip to carbon, but less rebound and a more muted ride.

Hope that helps!

I agree, these run short with the elongated tip and a bit of rise in the tail. If you ski a 180ish is your go to size...a 185 in these are the ticket.

Hi!
Have a look at my and Phil’s comment above. Really no pressure, just FWIW, they really ski like 180s. I am actually selling to get a proper 185cm.
Hope that is helpful in some way.
