Last year’s winner is still a fantastic ski. It is totally locked down at high speeds. The Kiku is one of those rare women’s skis that can be pushed to the limit with confidence. As well as having immense stability, it’s beautifully smooth when entering and exiting the turn. Our testers felt immediate confidence to go for it, knowing the Kiku can back it up all the way.

Amanda Pirie
The only ski in this group I felt completely comfortable with after the first turn. Awesome!
Rowena Phillips
They come into their own at speed, which gives a strong sense of security
