    Dang!

    Would have loved the 191. But then again, the 184 will be great for mixed resort and touring, which was the point.

    Heard from reliable source that Dynastar is bringing back a shorter Pro Rider.
    Good news for lighter skiers, and possibly an indication that they will not phase out the Pro Rider. Hereís hoping.

    Hey mate.

    How much do your new ones weigh? Curious that Dynastar lists them at 2400gr. My 2017s are well north of that.

    And good luck with the AK winter.
