They say

We say

The Cross Carbon looks like another piece of high-quality German gear. They feel very light underfoot and quick from edge to edge. At slow-to-medium speeds they feel effortless, with a really sensitive touch. Moving up to higher speeds, that smooth flex remains, matched with a high level of grip. Go harder, in tough conditions, and they feel less reassuring. But overall, a lovely, high-quality ski.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Really easy at slower speeds - would suit a lighter skier. Lack of life when pushed
Mark Jones
Very smooth. Easy to use, grippy, and with a nice progressive entry into the turn
