They say

The Century has awesome graphics and feels cool to have on your feet. This sort of width allied to nose rocker makes them incredibly easy to use in deep powder.

We say

They float effortlessly, and that shape makes it easy to adjust through the turn. If you’re a powder junkie, you’ll love them. At higher speeds on harder conditions they can start to flap and feel hesitant, but overall a great powder ski.
