We say

The Neo is Scott’s utility ski , aimed at optimal performance in all conditions. On the piste we found it surprisingly grippy, with a very reactive shape and a solid feeling underfoot: it feels strong in all turn-shapes. In deeper conditions, that wider shovel worked really well, giving the ski good lift and steering. However, the shape made the skis quite twitchy, and the skier needs to be really in charge to enjoy these conditions.

Nimble, quick and easy: great for short turns in between the trees
Mark Jones
A good ski, but struggling to get the right balance between piste and backcountry
