They say

We say

This is a World Cup racing GS ski for competitive skiers, it’s the same ski that Ted Ligety uses on the World Cup circuit. This is another GS ski which is exceptionally smooth for its performance. At high speeds it feels indestructible, giving the skier trust to push onto a quicker pace. The shape is also very reactive, it initiates a turn with ease and feels capable of carving a tight arc.
