We say

You only have to look at this ski to see it’s focused on performance. The visible oil-piston shock absorber provides ‘full suspension’. Definitely the most lively ski we tested in this category, it has astounding edge-grip matched with high levels of acceleration out of the turn. A fantastic piste all-rounder that can rip GS turns right down to short carving turns. But in deep, backcountry conditions its powerful construction works against it and makes it harder to handle.

Pete Davison
Amazing edge-grip and very lively. Awesome fun on the piste
Roddy Willis
Piston technology is brilliant for dampening vibration. More of a slalom ski than all- mountain. Loved it
