They say

We say

The latest Motive enters this season with a new ‘all-mountain rocker’ shape which should make it easier to adjust in deeper snow. A very forgiving, easy ski to use. For the skier just starting to mix up a variety of terrain, this would be a good choice. Entry into the turn is effortless, whilst through the curve it feels predictable, grippy and easy to adjust. In backcountry conditions the rocker helps link the turns. At higher speeds it feels less stable.

Tester Comments

Sean Langmuir
Soft and versatile. The rocker helps initiate short turns
Mark Jones
Great aspirational intermediate ski. Delivers a predictable performance on piste, but with a good amount of feedback and rebound
