They say

We say

The Aftershock has the largest waist width of the AMP series, and comes with a rockered tip to help make life easier in the powder. The dampening technology is immediately apparent. The Aftershock feels very stable at speed, with an ability to give a smooth ride over all terrain. That quality ride allows it to flow over difficult snow with no vibration coming back to the skier. It’s one of those skis that seems as though it needs to go fast before you get a lively response - and feels at its best linking fast turns.

Tester Comments

Sean Langmuir
At full- on speed, they’re sometimes difficult to handle. Not for the faint hearted!
Al Morgan
Great reaction out of the turn - the stability meant I could go really fast
