Blister Outdoor Gear review Crested Butte

Dylan Wood and Luke Koppa review the Sego Comp 110 for Blister

2021-2022 Sego Comp 110

The Sego Comp 110 seems like a pretty niche ski — it was designed for freeride skiers who need to ski fast and go big, and also throw tricks. But after a season on it, we think its rare blend of traits could be appealing to many skiers — not just those on the competition circuit. Check out our full review & Deep Dive comparisons.

2021-2022 Salomon QST 98
