Technical info:
Bushywayne is among the stiffest skis we´ve ever tested. 9 in the middle and the front ski is a new record. The weight speaks for itself; it's not often we try skis that are over 3 kilos. The strange thing is that the extremely stiff and heavy construction is paired up with a lot of sidecut, especially in the back ski (16mR). This gives massive and heavy tips. Note that the tips on these skis are just as wide as K2´s monster skis. The tips have low and acute angles.

On snow:
It is a large and heavy ski with a long sidecut and little setback. This is by no means a bad ski, but it is a little too much of everything. It scores most points for versatility, while its principal weakness is that it is too heavy for quick moves. It suits big freeriders. This ski will wrestle you, and is a stiff off-piste model that is easiest to maneuver at speed.
