They say

We say

A new design with a wide body, powerful construction, and nose rocker to help in mixed conditions. The Enduro has very high levels of grip, and is best suited to long turns, where it can carve out a mean arc. In shorter turns, it feels too heavy and wide to work well. In variable snow conditions that shape and nose really work, and make it easier to float onto the surface.
