Comments about Line Skis Chronic Cryptonite Skis 2010:

These skis are light, easy to ski, and very responsive. I am not a park skier, and use these as all mountain skis. I had the chance to try them out for a week at Big Sky recently. They have terrific carving ability, and turn very quickly with a short radius. If you're not used to such a short radius, they might feel a little "catchy" to you. They are OK for light powder, but definitely not a big powder day ski. Also, they are too light to handle crud effectively, and didn't inspire confidence on the real steeps. Certainly lots of fun on groomers, and awesome graphic! A lot of fun overall for all-mountain, groomers, light powder, but avoid for big-mountain steeps or real powder days.

Comments about Line Skis Chronic Cryptonite Skis 2010:

Great value ski!!! Great quality and performance. They dominate the whole mountain and are very stable. If you want a buttery ski, these might not be your best bet. But if you're hitting 30+ foot jumps and want an all mountain ski you can rely on, get the chronic cryptonites.

These skis look great and ski great. I ski 85%park 15% groomers. At 92 underfoot, these are a perfect medium between a racing ski and pow ski. It allows you to rip up the mountain in the morning, and slay the park in the afternoon.

I highly recommend these skis to anyone looking for an all-mountain ski. Its a perfect one ski quiver for the Midwest. PERFECT!

    Comments about Line Skis Chronic Cryptonite Skis 2010:

    Im 6'5" 170lbs with my focus being big mountain and park skiing. I received these ski's as a christmas present from my girlfriend. She got me the 173 size which for me and my style of skiing is PERFECT! These ski's are AMAZING! These ski's are light, loads of pop, carve great when skiing forwards and just as well backwards. I have been skiing Head Mad Trix for the last 8 years with demoing skis as well, and just one night on these i felt like a pro. Everything i did was effortless when compared to the Mad Trix. The slightly smaller size for my style of skiing was perfect, spins are easy, butters even easier. All around the best ski i have ever skied.

    The skis do start to chatter on cruddy snow at high speeds, but these are not racing ski's.

    If you spend a lot of time in the park, jibbing or ripping up all over the mountain then please do yourself a favor and get a pair of these!

      Comments about Line Skis Chronic Cryptonite Skis 2010:

      I have used these for four days, spring skiing in the park at A Basin. I haven't had these skis for long I can't really comment on their durability though they have held up so far. They are light, poppy, and have a good flex (stiffer than my seths but not by much). I got the 173 length and I am 5'10" 160 lbs and I mounted them -2 from center with Look PX12 bindings and it seems to be working well for me. These skis kill it on rails and jumps and are stable at speed. The funnest skis i've ever owned

        These are the first pair of skis I have purchased in 15 years. I was a die hard K2 fan but after demo of several new skis in February the Chronic Cryptonite won hands down. I took them to Whistler and spent a day at the freestyle course in April, they were a blast. I am totally satisfied. [...]

                    I ski mostly all mountain on the runs. I would recommend these to anyone. This is the perfect combination in every way. Mounted some look pivot 17 bindings on these.
                    I thought these would be a bit slow because of width, i was very wrong. These skis fly if you go fast enough :o . Best ski i ever owned and the price was half of retail. Chronic ecstasy.

                    great skis, dude. used em in breck and vail, and they were awesome! great on powder, although you really have to lean back if you truly wanna float through deep pow-pow. they cut real well but have a lil too much grip than i like, but easy to adjust. the graphics are gnarly! going in between moguls was nothing! if hucking yourself off a ledge, these skis land real stiff, so just know what you prefer. these were a great choice and im gonna rock em til they die! only regret is not having tried them out on any rails or boxes...next season.

                        Bought these skis in the spring to use as my park skis. They ski really well on groomers and riding switch off jumps is a breeze. They aren't true twins as the tail has a slightly different flex than the nose. They aren't the best choice for moguls, but turn quick and smooth on groomers. I haven't really had the chance to ride them in deep powder but I imagine at 92mm waist they float pretty well.

                        Where these skis really excel - and I'm sure other reviewers have mentioned - is landing big airs. They're fat, forgiving, and have the perfect flex for throwing big jumps. I don't ride rails but I think this wouldn't be a great ski for rails due to the fragile sidewalls. Very flimsy topsheet as well. Overall, couldn't have picked a better ski for what I need to accomplish. I'm 5'10" and went with the 173s. Perfect size.

                        They don't get center mounted because they are a all-mountain ski, but they still work great in the park. Also, mine seemed to chip really easy, but I also rode them pretty hard. They are a little on the heavy side, but I would highly recomend them as a starter ski. These are my first skis, and I've been loving them. Even though they aren't center mounted, its very close, and riding switch is no problem at all. I mostly ride park, but I've had no drawbacks taking these skis anywhere on the mountain. I've never had a opportunity to use these in powder, so I have no idea how they would handle in it. But, they are a little wider, so I would image they'd be better than other twin tips in powder.

                        Took these skis out west for some spring skiing and they tore everything up at JH. From small powder stashes to good sized jumps. Little heavier then I would have liked but pair them with an fks binding and youll be able to tear everything from the park to some pow

                          This week I was alternating between 2 pair of skis at Big Sky, MT. After 3 days I put away my Salomon X-Screams because I like the all mountain performance of Cryptonites. I bought the 173cm for the stability, even though I am 5'6" and 145lbs. 35-45 degree slopes of powder and crud are easy with these skis - well depending on your skill set - Much better than the Gun skis (heavy swing and too wide). Even skiing the groomers with the kids is effortless. Floatation in powder is fine - we used to ski powder with skinny sticks in the old days, of course the beginners couldn't. I guess by the past comment you realize I am an older skier, but age is all relative! Does anyone want to by my X-Screams?

                            Great park skis and great for carving on groomers. Great edge hold in icy conditions. 92mm waist provides a great platform to land on big jumps. I've only used these at bear mountain and snow summit in so cal so I don't know how they hold up in powder.

                              The Chronic Cryptonites are fun to ride forwards, backwards, occasionally upside down and through the park or trees. I'm a 60/40 snowboarder/skier, and I still ride snowboards on pow days, but it's a testament to these skis that it's a tough call on a sunny park day deciding which discipline to rock. An excellent versatile freestyle ski. Very, very fun.

                                Great all around ski. These things are a dream on the groomers and in choppy conditions, they just plow right through all the crud. Great in the park, lots of pop and enough stability to land the bigger jumps. The wider underfoot comes in handy for fresh snow, but if you're planning on skiing a lot of deep powder, I would recommend getting a pair of proper pow skis. These combined with a pair of pow skis would make a great 2 ski quiver. The main complaint I have about them is the graphics on the top seem to get chipped/scratched really easily. I've used them about 6 times and already have some major gashes and chips on the top... edges and base are very sturdy though (which is what counts).

                                  These ski's are light, have lots of pop, and carve great when skiing forwards and switch. I can't say much for the durablity as I have only skied a few weekends at Breck and Keystone with them, but they were great in pow and on groomers.

                                  I highly recommend these skis to anyone looking for an affordable all-mountain ski.

                                    Two weeks in Steamboat trees - these were perfect for the knee-deep as well as the groomers. Highly recommended
