Gear Buddy Opinion
The Commander series was made for hard charging all mountain skiers who are looking for a stiff and energetic ski. The Commander 98 is the thinnest of the bunch and is perfect for charging in any condition especially during those dry spells.
I'm rocking the 188cms, and am SO STOKED on these skis. They have excellent edge hold on hard pack, rip energetic turns on groomers, and are incredibly stable at speed. When the snow gets softer, they only get more fun. I've skied these on everything from ice to knee deep pow, and they haven't been anything but impressive in all conditions. Want to bust through crud at mach stupid, got it. Want to slide and slash through tight trees, got it. Want to lose your pass for doing figure 11's down a crowded groomer, got it.
