After reading all the posts here and on the Super Cub forum about experiences with and opinions on penetration skis, the decision to purchase Datum skis for my S2-XP makes the most sense and perhaps the safest choice. Not to mention with the favorable exchange rate I can purchase a second set of wheels to make the transition all the easier. No expectations of flying with them this season just being ready early for next.

In the mountains you are very much on your own and you need to know the skis will do their job.
