The Shima 85 is an all mountain/ freestyle ski for someone who enjoys exploring the whole mountain but still finds time to hit the park and jib around for fun. The Shima 85 uses a park rocker profile which is made of camber in the middle and rocker at the tip and tail. The camber gives the skis extra pop and snap whilst the rocker at either end make it easier to initiate turn and float over powder. The medium flex gives you both response for technical terrain and a flex for the park. For a true freestyle feel the Shima 86 has a twin tip shape, this is a symmetrical ski between the tip and the tail, so the skis behave in the same way when riding forward or backwards.
