What WOVN says about the Kingfisher 120

“The Kingfisher is a ski made for powder days. At 120mm underfoot with a massive 157mm shovel, these skis will perform in the lowest density snow.  The swallow tail shape maintains edge length while reducing tail drag, allowing the skis to plane up to the surface of the snow. This shovel and swallow combination lets the skier keep continuous nose pressure throughout their soft snow run.”

Flex Pattern

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Kingfisher 120:

Tips: 6.5-7
Shovels: 7-8
In Front of Toe Piece: 8.5-10
Underfoot: 10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-9.5
Tails: 9.5-6

Overall, the Kingfisher 120 is a pretty stiff ski, especially around the cambered portion.

Stay Tuned…

We received the lightweight, fish-tailed Kingfisher 120 and sent it up to Paul Forward in Alaska for long-term testing. Stay tuned for our on-snow impressions of this ski, and let us know in the comments if you have any questions you’d like us to answer.
