They say

We say

The Sultan is a very capable all-mountain ski. On piste it has a smooth ride, while its shape and flex make it feel playful and grippy in all turn-shapes. It’s generally an easy ski to use, and most people will feel instantly comfortable the moment they start to use it. In deeper conditions it worked well, feeling light and easy to adjust, although at very high speeds it started to feel more unstable

Tester Comments

Roddy Willis
Forgiving and easy to use all over the mountain, but could do with a slightly larger tip to help initiate the turn
Lee Townend
Confidence-building and secure. Better off the piste than on it. Quite torsionally stiff, so harder work at slower speeds
