Great comparison. Love the format and the detail. Great insight as to speed and early turn initiation. Never heard that before. V8 looks good. The e-Rally is what everyone wants but is it what you really need? I think I would be happy with both but is the V8 fast and powerful enough for my needs vs. my need for a little more mellow (knees aren't getting any stronger).

You get it. Thank you.

There is an e-Titan, correct? I would like a comparison to the Titan.

This should help you understand the differences between the eRally and eTitan


Simply the eTitan has a wider waist but basically the same tip and tail as the eRally which creates a longer radius and more off piste versatility.

I have the e-V8 and find it too light for me. I'm 6' 210-220. The e-Rally may be better suited for me but I can only find the e-Magnum to demo which I'm doing on Friday.

I'm looking for a carver like the e-V8 but mre beefy I suppose.

I've skied the Supershape e-Rally 5 days now. Head and shoulders above e-V8 (no pun intended). I think it's my weight (210lbs on a light day) that demands the stiffness.

The e-Rally stability at speed is very impressive. At 40MPH I felt fine, although I don't ski that speed almost ever and didn't keep it at that speed for long. On the e-v8 at 25 MPH I felt 'nervous'.

To be fair my e-v8s were 170 whereas my new e-Rallys are 177. So damper and longer, maybe it's not a fair fight in that area?

Not a fair comparison at all, that V8 in a 170 was way under gunned for your size.
