PRODUCT REVIEW: Wed’ze Skis and Ski Boots
WED’ZE X-LANDER 7.5 SKIS
I found that the Wed’ze X-Lander 7.5 ski to be a very versatile and forgiving ski, with its all mountain side cut (119-75-103) and 15m turn radius. This ski is aimed at the type of skier who wants a ski to ski on piste the majority of the time but also wants to venture off piste from time to time, with its front rocker, it allow the skier to make nice linked turns with less effort when the snow is soft or whilst skiing in slope side powder. The shell fibre construction combined with the skis camber gives the ski excellent grip and control on those hard icier slopes first thing in the mornings.
For an upper intermediate to advanced skier, who wants to explore the whole mountain, this ski will give them the confidence and sureness under foot to push them selves and take a new line through the trees or down a nice piece of untracked snow.
The X-Lander 7.5 comes with the Wed’ze WZ10 binding to make a great package, especially at a bargain price of £159.99, this represents fantastic value for money.
WED’ZE RnS 110 SKI BOOT
For any skier looking for close fitting, high performance ski boots, that will give the skier great control in those tight slalom & giant slalom turns, this boot certainly fits the bill.
The RnS 110 has a stiff 110 flex, which allows the messages from the foot to go straight through to the ski, it is a narrow lasted boot at 100mm, which for my wide feet I found very tight to start off with. The ergonomic memory foam liner moulds around the foot with the heat naturally generated and give a very comfortable & close fit, which I like very much. After skiing in the boot a few times, I found the fit and comfort got better and better, it is a boot that needs skiing in and is designed for performance rather than ultimate comfort.
All the buckles on this boot are fully adjustable and you get a 35mm wide power strap to give you that bit extra a the top of the boot. The flex on this boot can be adjusted; you can remove the screws at the back and replace them with blanks, which will give a softer flexing boot and a little bit more forgiveness when skiing.
I found the boot very easy to get on & off and the inner boots comes out the shell easily for drying. For anybody who likes skiing down the steeper icier runs creating smooth linked turns at speed, this boot will give the skier great confidence to do so and when matched with a ski like the Head World Cup Rebels will make you want to head for the start gate and take on one of those times slalom runs. Another exceptional value for money products from Wed’ze, with this boot currently selling at £149.99!!
