We say

Another very powerful performer on the piste. It feels heavy, strong and very grippy on the edge. This allows it to feel exceptionally stable at speed. A great choice for fast blasting in the crud. In deeper conditions it works well – but if the speed drops, or in very deep snow, the weight and stiffness make it harder to adjust and steer into a new direction.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Feel more at home on piste than in the powder, with a great carving sidecut and powerful edge-grip. In deep snow they are quite narrow and don’t float as well
Al Morgan
If you want to ski fast, it’s not too bad, particularly on piste
