The main strength of the new Access is its strong carving ability on piste. Although it has rocker through the tip, which can flap at speed, it still grips really well when tilted onto the edge. It’s also very easy to adjust – so able to carve turns in any turn-shape. In deep conditions it has an easy, soft, forgiving flex, while that 100mm underfoot gives it plenty of surface area to float through the powder.

Lee Townend
Would be a great first freeride ski for the budding intermediate skier looking for help in new terrain
Roddy Willis
The best in this category: super light, nimble and fun. Amazing grip on piste in carved turns and short radius
