They say

We say

The Influence is set up for high speeds and big lines. It uses a beefy construction with a full length sidewall and metal matrix reinforcement. It's a surprisingly easy ski to use on the piste with easy pivoting but good levels of edge grip. In the backcountry the early rise tip works really well, giving immediate easy float and allowing the Influence to steer with minimal effort. At speed it gives out a smooth ride and instills the rider with confidence. Overall this is a superb big mountain ski that looks cool while handling fast turns in all conditions with ease.
