I literally can pick up this ski with my pinky finger (without bindings)!!! They are by far the lightest ski on the market that is wide enough, in my opinion, to ski powder. I love skinning with this set-up- it takes me one step closer to being able to keep up with my husband. I also love boot packing with these skis on my back. It's almost like they're not even there!
Don't expect to love this ski in bumps, crud or ice. I would really like to try this ski with better, stiffer bindings, but with the Fritchi set-up I can't seem to find the sweet spot. They don't bounce like any of my K2 skis- I've skied on everything from the classic "Four" to the "Phat Luvs". Even my Head Mojos, which have very similar dimensions, are better all mountain skis.
Also, I worry about this ski's durability. As a fairly lightweight, non aggressive skier, I am NOT hard on ski equipment. Yet the top sheet is delaminating. I have heard of these skis breaking in half, the edges coming off and the top tip coming off.
Lastly, these skis are extremely expensive. At $1140, you would expect the Goode Carbon 95's to function as the only ski in your quiver; as a solid, all-mountain ski. However, they fall short of such great expectations.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
These Goode Skis are awesome for backcountry skiing in powder conditions! I absolutely love them overall and for me, the weight savings is far more important than any sacrificed performance.
