Testing skis so you don't have to.

Philpug: So, 82 is the new "insert whatever the latest biggest fad width" here. Every brand seems to be focusing on the 82mm segment -- which is not odd (if it were odd, there would be a lot of 81 or 83mm skis, bah dum dump). Like its wider sibling the 86 Ti, the carryover 82 Ti wants to lay it over yet is not afraid to venture off piste into the junk. With a gradual tip rise with some flair and flared tail, the 82 Ti is one of the more versatile skis on the segment, offering as much power as you would require (but not demand).
Insider tip: If there were a Pivot with a brake that fit, I would say go that way, but there is not, so the SPX 12 is the binding choice to bypass the Konect.
