Superb quality graphics as usual from Icelantic. I wasn't sure of the design at first compared to last year but they've really grown on me in the last week or two. And they look even better on the skis than in the pic.
Icelantic are saying the dimensions are the same as last year. I sell Icelantic's in the UK but we only have demos at the moment in the new longer lengths. The longer Pilgrim & the longer Shaman are the same but the 181cm Nomad that I have is 112mm underfoot versus the 105mm of the 151 & 169 lengths so this could get tweaked for the final production.
the only thing about it i didn't like was the massive shovel. the day i demoed them at Loveland last season it was all windbuff off of 8. they railed that. where i got into trouble was hitting death cookies and iced moguls on the way back down to the lodge. the massive shovels were clumsy, to say the least, on harder snow.
i really liked the shape of the Nomad, but it was skittish.
my suggestion to them was to make a cross-breed of the two. Something with more of a Nomad shape, but the same dimensions of the Shaman and in about 178/180 length.
these pix make it look as if they may have trimmed the shovel down on the Shaman a bit.
as for the graphics, i thought they looked eviler (i.e. darker in tone) this time around. more malevolent.
