    K2 El Camino's

    There's one pair of unused 188cm el caminos for 50e. Worth of buying for groomers? Does anybody remember dimensions and radius for that ski? Would be nice retro ski though

    What about unused Elan Psx tsi 193cm for 50e?

    I think the ElCaminos were 65mm underfoot.

    There is some discussion about k2 skis of the same generation in the "Are Original Morrisons Worthy" thread.

    I had 188 el camino's back in the day. They were pretty sweet skis, but I didn't know enough about skis at the time to really comment on them today.

    Pretty much an upper intermediate ski, not gonna be real "grabby" on hard snow.....retro yes, fun...probably not, unless your doing some bumping

    IIRC, the El Camino's are the 4's without the piezoelectric doohickey, the 4's were good fun skis for the day, I skied the hell out of mine, I'd say 50 E. is a little high but probably still worth it for groomers and rocks if the 188 is big enough for you.

    I disagree with this post if I have my facts straight in the post above.

    I am pretty sure they are fours without the light and a softer tip. I remember they rocked in the bumps back in the day

    These seems to be older model, red and brown one's. Are they worse than that newer model with car picture?

    I really wanted a pair of those "back in the day".
    Gravity. It's the law.

    El, El Camino
    The front looks like a car
    The back looks like a truck
    The front is where you drive
    The back is where you fuck

    I had the 193cm K2 El Caminos. They were a watered down K2 Four (which itself was already pretty watered down!) without the pizoelectric gizmo. In its day, it was considered a mid-fat!
    Seth Morrison and Kent Kreitler ripped it up on them in the movie "The Performers."
