They say

Of the new Affinity series, the Storm is the widest example with 84mm underfoot. It also uses a heel lift integrated within the ski.

We say

This is a grippy, high- performance ski on piste. It feels lively and reactive on the edge, particularly in short turns. In general it feels like a responsive, full-of-energy ski suited to hard-charging skiers. It has high levels of edge-hold on piste and stability at speed. In deeper snow the width helps it float, but the stiffer flex takes no prisoners if you make mistakes.

Tester Comments

Betony Garner
Stiff and strong, especially underfoot. An all-mountain ski for the confident and aggressive female
Jo Jo O Brien
Holds on edge nicely in short turns - could be more stable off piste
