Test Riding & Breaking In Kyle Burtka’s Backie Chan


This weekend I had the chance to take my brother Kyle’s ski for some break-in and test riding after its fresh rebuild. Kyle’s build started with a Black Backie Chan Rush hull weighing in at 76 pounds.

Even with a stock flywheel and charging system, this ski rode great and easily flipped on flat water.
