A new product which within this category looks pretty fat. Match that width with a progressive tip, and it looks geared up for the deep stuff. As expected, in the powder the TST felt awesome - nice and floaty while easy to adjust through the arc. The big surprise was that it gripped well in long turns on piste. In fact skiers who love carving big arcs on groomed runs would be very happy riding the TST. In short turns, it’s harder to move quickly. But overall, a great ski.

A great off-piste ski that’s fun and versatile on piste, very playful and easy to ski

Surprisingly reassuring at speed. Great in variable conditions
