They say

We say

The Magnum has a radical shape which carves out a tight radius. It feels like a stable, smooth slalom ski. When carving, it feels grippy, reactive and really up for some punishment. It provides a very smooth ride and soaks up vibrations at speed with ease. On the entry to the turn, many of the test team felt the tip was too soft, but overall it’s a good all-round choice.

Tester Comments

Nicko Braxton
A great all-round piste ski. Feels solid, and makes you want to ski fast
Pete Davison
Very smooth on perfectly groomed pistes, but a little soft in the tip on entry
