Do they feel stable and supportive when XC skiing in deep soft snow, or do they "bow", with the narrow waist sinking much deeper than the tip/tail?
To me it seems like the Rabbs are pretty much similar as Lilcliffy's Storetinds are.
Very cool! I spoke to a skier from British Columbia/Alberta that said the previous Falketind 68 had a much rounder softer flex than the Storetind and the new Rabb...
The only thing that I do not like on the Rabbs is that the steel edges do not go all the way to the very end of the tip to protect it. My ski tips are already looking quite bashed. Sometimes I also wonder if a track groove would make it track better, but would that hinder the turning?
I do appreciate- very much- the full-wrap steel edge on the Storetind for backcoutry skiing below treeline- was hoping that it would return on the Rabb 68!
I think that a track groove would definitely help- somewhat- with XC tracking. If one is pressuring and engaging the edges when turning- shouldn't hurt downhill performance...I would think that a track groove would have a bigger effect on fat, round smeary powder skis...
