We say

The dampening on this ski is amazing: the Varioflex platforms really seem to make a difference: it feels as though you have no limits to the speeds or snow conditions the ski can handle. Levels of grip are very high, particularly in long, fast turns. It feels stable and smooth, with the character of a GS ski. In shorter turns it feels fine, but for a mix of turns on the piste it might need more energy. 

Tester Comments

Nicko Braxton
Surprisingly stable at speed: performs well for price point
Mark Jones
Very smooth, really well dampened, and grippy and powerful in long turns
