We say

The new Sentinel is a powerful weapon on the piste. The sandwich sidewalls really make themselves felt, and the ski can lay out long, carved turns like a GS ski. This is a fast, smooth ski for on-piste conditions, offering way more performance than you’d normally expect for a freeride ski. In deep conditions it’s good for crud bashing, but less playful and less easy to use in powder when compared with other skis in this category.

Tester Comments

Roddy Willis
Very stiff - not much sidecut. Great on hardpack: nice to have in your ski wardrobe for chalky conditions
Lee Townend
Place them on an edge and ride them out like a Bentley Continental! Good for medium and long-radius turns on the piste
