“God Save the Seth Pistol, who cares about the Queen? Seth’s instrument comes back retuned for 04/05 ready to strike a chord with angry punk anarchists who must DESTROY any terrain the mountain has to offer. The “pink is punk” sidewalls, loud graphics for each size, raw colors for each model, and in-your-face British anthem base scream Anarchy. Pick up the instrument, take the stage, and make Seth and the ski Bloody Proud!”
A very daring mix of sheer size and loud graphics make this ski one not to be missed on the slopes – simply put you could not miss a pair or even one even if you wanted to. This ski has presence and bundles of the stuff. The K2 Seth Pistol was created by Seth Morrison and named after his favourite band.
Personally I was quite in awe of the Line Flites’ but seeing these really took the biscuit tin. Carrying these is no mean feat, even over one shoulder causes a sweat in no time walking on snow or not.
I did not get to ski on these until the end of the day and for a very short amount of time. They had just had a waxed and sharpened so my slalom race subconscious silently informed me these would be nice and quick. Of course this is not the case – these skis have such a mammoth footprint (a mere 14 mm sidecut) that on wet snow you simply stop.
Considering the conditions (both in snow and time) in which I found myself it would not be fair to comment about performance of the Seth Pistols’. So I invite those who have had the good fortune to try the new seasons model in favourable conditions to use the comments system just below to tell us what you think.
As notorious now as the ten eighties’ were in their first couple of seasons so maybe we have another benchmark prospect on our hands. You tell us!
