    Season Eqpt. discussion thread

    I pulled the trigger on the Season Eqpt. Forma skis, and hope they are a suitable replacement for the Pescado and Sakana, both of which I wanted to be 115mm at the waist. I am hoping they ski somewhat similarly, but I've been told they are chargier and heavier, which is OK by me.

    Also, anyone who has ordered a set and either received them, or received a shipping notification? I have not.

    Pescado had me intrigued.
    Forma with it's more versatile width and fall-line charger MO sounds even better.

    Not this season though.

    They are not what I expected after the Pescado and Sakana, but for me they're better . . .

    Not sure about the exact timetable of the Formas (got mine through non-commercial channels), but I've pre-ordered skis from evo before and they simply showed up a few days before they said they would - website says they are shipping January 5. Assume they are going on a best estimate of delivery time from Season.

    Season air lifted a few skis out of Europe for initial product launch those (skis) have pretty much all been sold at this point. The rest are coming via boat and apparently there is a lot of 2020 related slowdowns in trans Atlantic shipping.

    Forma was great today at Stevens - 5-6 inches fresh over icy bumps when we arrived, over 12" by the time I figured I'd best get out of the lot before I high-centered the Alltrack. Enough mass and stiffness to handle the hard rollers early, plenty of edge hold for dropping into Tye Bowl (sheet of ice), excellent float when it got deeper . . .

    Apparently they are finally stateside, so I should see mine soon. If I ordered through the brand website do they still ship out from EVO?

    Blister has. Luke says it’s like the SFB just a bit more substantial

    Yeah saw that thanks!

    It looks kinda interesting- I was bummed by the lengths but it looks like the EE is the same as a 186 Jeff/kartel 108 which never felt too short to me when I was on them.
