They say

The Legend takes a powerful construction allied with a reactive sidecut and then makes the whole ski wider to 80mm underfoot, to give it that much-needed float in deeper conditions.

We say

As soon as you get moving on this ski, there’s no doubt it’s meant for powerful, confident riders. On the edge it grips very hard, and has near-race potential in both speed and edge-angle. Generally the whole construction of the ski feels solid and powerful. It cuts through deeper snow with ease, but feels less playful at lower speeds.

Tester Comments

Amanda Pirie
You need to be on it to get the most out of it, but when you do, woo hoo!
Jo Jo O Brien
Stable at speed, but you need to work the ski harder to get the best performance. A good ski!
