Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Thanks for posting, these sound like the previous version of the Mantra which I've used and loved. I'm 6'1", normally ski about 185. Anybody advise which to go for the 183 or 188?

@JackSkier, thanks for the link. I'm seriously tempted to try them at that price. There's a deal with bindings. I'd need some bindings to suit otherwise.

I own a pair of Daemons and really like them: so easy to turn, yet feel very stable, and I'm glad I put a pair of Shifts on them as they're fine for short tours too. They're full reverse camber and so they do ski a little 'short'. If I were you I'd go for the 188cm.

Thanks for the info. I’m close to pulling the trigger on them but the Kastle MX89 are also tempting me. The MX89 come with bindings and seem a good deal. As a predominately piste skier but someone who’s finding I enjoy the softer stuff more and more especially on a wider ski I’m a bit torn.

The sale has ended. I managed to bag a 10% discount code just before ordering so they were £135 which figured is cheap enough to try and should lose much if anything selling on.... that was my logic anyway

Hey @spyderjon, thanks for the heads up I’ve been thinking about replacing my wife’s ski. My wife is 167cm tall, 11st (I’ll delete this but later hon) and upper intermediate. Currently skis a 152 Rossi temptation 80 and feels it might be getting to short for her. Would you recommend the 158 or 166? Cheers everso. D

@djf, erm... can't she replace her own skis and decide on the lenghth herself?

And she must be positively svelte at that height and weight.

Thanks both actually I think my maths was wrong she's more 164cm tall. So an inch shorter than originally thought but yep she is svelte Smile and does a fraction of the skiing I do and is way better than me.

TBH I was thinking of a TA DAAAAA I've bought you a present kind of thing.

Having looked at the reviews and I have now chatted it through together I think we’re gojng to look for something a little more all mountain. Thinking the lady equivalent of my brahmas so not off piste just a bit more flexible. Cheers for the info both.

I took a punt on a couple of items. Despite these being from the test event, both appear untried and brand new with labels. Bit of a result at the price.

Returning to my comment about Amazon selling Spikes Spider Sport snowchains recently, some of the prices have become very good value.

You need a chain to match your tyres and a fixing kit to match your wheel bolts.

For a Medium pair of chains with 17mm fixing bolts, Roofbox quote a price of £419.95 for chains and fix kit. Amazon's price (at the time of typing) is £43.86 for the chains and £50.57 for the fix kit - total £94.43.

If you need Large size, Amazon will charge nearly £200 more - but you can convert Medium to Large by buying three pairs of long links from Roofbox for £17.85 + delivery. Worth exploring the options!

Excellent find, but you need three pairs of long links per wheel ie 6 pairs. It's virtually the same price to buy two sets of medium chains from Amazon, cannibalise one pair to make large and have lots of spares!

@anarchicsaltire, quite right, my mistake - well spotted. I've previously bought a chain set from Amazon at a very low price for that reason!
