Bode Miller and Crosson are giving away a pair of their Dissenter Seventy Eight skis.

Update: You can choose any size, 165cm, 175cm or 185cm length.​

Testers Snippet:
"I had a chance to ski these with Bode at Big Sky, and I can say with confidence that the Dissenter Seventy Eight will make skiers looking for an alternative to the mainstream premium options stand up and take notice. The base finish and structure of the Crossons are some of the best in the industry." --Phil Pugliese, SkiTalk Tester​

78 - Crosson Ski

Slice and Carve. There’s nothing like the feeling of a deep carved turn. To really lay it over, though, you need to fully trust your skis. A little wider than a traditional carving ski, the Seventy Eight is less reactive to help you cut through the softer stuff, while the wider radius gives you the confidence to really increase those angles on the groomed. Sporty while still being stable and direct, this ski has grip like no other. If you’re not used to carving, you’re in for a ride—and if you think you are, then get ready for a whole new experience. These skis have dimensions of: 165cm: Radius 14m, 175cm: 130–78–110 Radius 15m, 185cm: 134–78–110 Radius 16m.​

Awesome series and congrats on getting another major/leading figure in the ski industry to appear on SkiTalk......pretty nice feather in the cap.

Another sweet product give away......similar to Powerball or MegaMillions, I believe that this is my time to win!!!

@Philpug what are your impressions of the Crosson product and how does it compare to it's peers which I assume are the Croc 77, Stöckli AX, Blossom Whiteout, Renoun Atlas..the $1100-900 flat price point is compelling and interesting.

The 175cm shows an 15m radius, it felt tighter than that but still can be worked at speed. It is a very playful ski and even with only 11mm of taper, the tail was able to be worked. The finish is the best of any ski I have seen out of the box.

Interesting that Full Tilt seems to have gone to standard flex descriptions this year. Used to be that they described their flex tongues in a 4-12? number

Did you get to try other lengths besides the 175's? Was @Tricia on the same ski in a shorter length or a different model?

Wasn’t Bode saying to go for the long one? 185cm? It was a bit hard to interpret.
