They say

We say

The Outland is a new design which uses a basalt layer in the construction and has tip rocker. A very versatile ski, it’s grippy on piste, and quick from edge to edge, while that tip rocker makes it forgiving and easy to adjust through the turn. It’s also very stable through the crud, and definitely a ski that can cope with anything. Some testers thought the shape was too reactive for deep powder - but it’s generally very capable in the backcountry. Overall, a well-judged all-mountain ski.

Tester Comments

Al Morgan
Such a fun ski! It made me want to have a go at pretty much any terrain. Gripped well on piste and floated well in powder
Sean Langmuir
Responsive on piste and perhaps a little too reactive off piste. Great for energetic and reactive skiing
