Strenghts:
Skied him with Telemark binding.
Although the ski is fat you can realy carve with this ski, quick turns, big G-turns, everything. Gut edge controll (torsion stabillity is great). Off-Piste is one big adraline kick !! even in the worst snow condition you controll the ski, not the otherway around. Solid and Nice wood core construction

Weaknesses:
Not for Telemark beginners. I couldn't find a weak spot...

Summary:
If you want to have one pair of ski, The kilowat is the right choice. You can do everything with him, Touring, piste, Off-Piste. The weight is ok for suchs a fat ski.

Strenghts:
I ski the deep powder in Idaho. I was surprised. I used 185's, I weigh 225lbs, ski patrol. Nothing that this ski can't do, ski the shutes, steep and deep, very responsive. I did not try them on spring time ice, but then again, that is what I wanted them for. Mosat fun ski I have ever tried. Bindings were Fritchie freerede plus.

Weaknesses:
None I could find.

Summary:
All in All...Super Great Ski

Model year: 2007
Length on the ski: 185 cm

Strenghts:
Immediately responsive, very stable, and a great turning radius despite the width. Also very light and very floaty.

Weaknesses:
They chatter a bit on high speed carves and are a little bit flexible for hard pack which doesn't allow the edge to really dig in too well.

Summary:
Really nice design, which is for BC use, but for hard core resort use only, they are decent.
