We say

One of the stand-out features of this ski is the level of edge-grip it can deliver. On hard, icy slopes it’s rock solid, while still managing to deliver an exceptionally silky, smooth ride. It was also surprisingly easy to use for short turns, while still showing excellent edge- hold. In deeper conditions it coped well, feeling stiff and powerful through the crud. A great ski, which would suit strong, technical skiers.

Tester Comments

Roddy Willis
Fantastic grip, yet still easy to use. Stiff enough to push through the crud
Al Morgan
Great edge-hold on piste. Good in short and long turn
