    Renoun Skis?

    Anybody out there skied Renoun skis? Hyper dampening non- newtonian polymer? Sounds cool if it works.

    We have had a ton of time on the Z90's which is more hard snow biased but still a extremely versatile ski.

    ^ Flexon Phil beat me to it.

    He didn't blatantly promote the related content on his own website, so I will. Some good stuff on his website.

    He wrote stuff like: "HDT, it works. The Renoun has an on-snow feel that is not achieved anywhere else." Support his website, read more at https://www.pugski.com/threads/when-...mium-ski.7586/

    ^^^^^^
    A big thanks to Phil, Pugski and Cyrus for turning me onto and setting me up with the Renoun Z90s.

    I'm loving my Z90s for firm snow and laying down carves....and lots of them quickly. They are super turny and grip very well. I have never had a pair of skis this fun. If you wait long enough in the turn, you can feel the tips engage even more and tighter. They are highly versatile and I I'm glad I went with the 90s versus their narrower carvers.

    You have to pay attention and not be lazy in bumps and variable snows, though they plow through crud and chop very well as long as you stay on them. Don't get in the back seat. For bumps, you can get thrown around, so carving off the tops or around bumps has been the call. They are OK in deeper snow but the narrow waist doesn't provide enough float for my fat ass. I expect their all mountains would be fun for bumps, chop and deeper snows.
    Best regards, Terry

    I thought they had something wider than 98. Looks like the 104s are sold out. That'd be a nice width.

    How interesting. Anyone compare with a well known TGR popular ski?

    Ok- compared to the Line/DPS/Kastle, the E98s are softer by hand flexing & are more supple at slower speeds. They do cross under turns & bumps/trees much better. They are also more center mounted & have less swing weight. They ski more 2 footed.

    Once up to speed, the eat terrain for breakfast.

    They lack the top end, outside ski loaded SuperG capacity.

    For 3 dimensional snow, they are butter & more surfy.... they make skiing shit 2D stuff less crap, but they don’t compare to the MX98/89 on a cold icy slope

    Renouns also butter pretty damn well & let ya do old man switch like a teen.

    So when the 98s vs the 104s? Seems like a fair amount of overlap.

    Sounds like you love them. And...they sound a little too good to be true.

    Skiid the On3p wren 98?

    98s are mounted on the line & are the trees/steeps/early season go to ; they are smoother w a semi cap sidewall

    104s are mounting back, have a stiffer flex & vertical sidewall - mid season ski; these were the pair Cyrus entered in the “woman’s category” @ SIA & are stamped “this is a Man’s only ski...” also on tail; hence the pink custom graphics.

    Either would be a one ski daily driver. I do appreciate em- the HyperDamping does exactly what they claim. While there are a lot of great skis out, these are special as they have a huge sweet spot & are able to vary the turn shape so while being just as strong in any shapes turn.


    I’ve not skied the Wren or any ON3P, but they look sweet & I would like to.

    So do you have to be careful not to drill in the gel pockets when mounting bindings?

    Only if your jig/template slips (); the HDT gel is strategically place in narrow strips to avoid binding area issues, but accidents do happen

    Here you can see where the strips are.



    I love mine. They are my go-to for just normal ripping around the mountain. My biggest qualm is that I think the bases aren't up to something like an ON3P standard. They don't take hits very well...I've had to fill 3 coreshots already this year.

    Judging by the amount of snow in the picture, it's no suprise you had 3 coreshots.

    It could be that...OR it could be that compared to my other skis that have more days on them and survived worse, these are a bit fragile.

    wow, those are great looking skis (albeit way too center mounted for my old school tastes). Designed by Mirror Pond sipping hippy millennials by the looks of the vid so that mount makes sense.

    Those "HDT" strips are interesting. I'd like to know what the soft material Dynastar is running strips of inside their new skis is like relative to that stuff but it appears that although the materials clearly differ (at least the marketing does) the intent is the same. The Dstar stuff is obviously not a gel, but I wonder how dense/rubbery it is.
