They say

We say

Another ski that feels completely rock solid at speed - nothing can push it off its line. The surprising upside is that it’s surprisingly easy to use, feels light under foot, and is easy to pivot and steer. In long, fast turns it has a smooth flex and is a pleasure to use on big, open faces. A versatile big- mountain ski that works at all speeds.

Tester Comments

Nicko Braxton
It reminded me of the old Rocket - easy to use and light under foot
Al Morgan
Despite its length, it was surprisingly versatile through the trees
