We say

New for 2012 the Theory uses a 95mm waist and has a slight rise in the tip running through to traditional camber. The Theory has a completely different character to many other skis in this group. It feels exceptionally light and easy to use, this also makes it one of the most effortless skis we tested for quick changes of direction and pivoting in deeper snow. It is a very playful ski, as soon as you start to move on it the Theory feels like a hyperactive puppy, ready to go at any second. With this character as well as being great for powder it also makes it a great option for steep, tricky terrain and gullies.
