I ski mainly park, and these skis have held up very well through a year of bashing them on rails and abuse in the terrain park. They also do very well in many all mountain situations, but they are a little skinny when it comes to powder skiing. That's obviously not what they're meant for though so that's not a knock. Overall I love the skis so far and would recommend them to any park rider on the fence about getting these skis.
I skied the Sarge 95 all season. Great ski that handles bumps, powder and grooms. On trail off trail and back on... like a dream.
Only 1 complaint. Wish the top coat was more durable so they stay pretty. Highly recommend to any ski spirit.
I work in Telluride as a ski instructor and the sarge started out as my free style ski and turned into my daily ride. Most fun ski I’ve ever experienced. I’ve ripped this from the park to groomers to 8-12 inches of fresh champagne pow and they do not disappoint. Hard to find a park ski with the perfect flex and pop that I can still carve when the terrain calls for it.
Love the tip shape great for flotation in powder
I'm 52 and if I had any park days, they're behind me. I purchased the Sarge95 this winter after skiing a K2 Shreditor 102 for the last two seasons. I was riding the K2s as a means to get off-trail and to enjoy freeskiing a bit more, but with my weight at 165# and with 102 mm underfoot, they didn't do very well on hardpack. After talking about parameters with Jeff we arrived at the Sarge95. Well, this season I wasn't able to do any backcountry, but have skied more glades then ever before. Add to that the crazy variable winter we've had here and the Sarge95s have handled about everything I've thrown at them, from icy hardpack to powder days. I'd recommend the Sarge95 to not just park users, but to anyone with a lighter weight that gets off-trail and wants a playful and versatile ski.
