They say

We say

The spirit is very much ‘green’ in the way that the eco-friendly Attraxion has been constructed, using linen fibre while the wood core comes from sustainable development crops. This is another ski that has a soft easy flex which makes the ski feel forgiving and effortless to use. It‘s particularly in short turns that the Attraxion works well, it has a very reactive sidecut which is responsive to input by the skier. For short to medium turns it will carve well if laid out onto the edge. Moving up into higher speeds on harder snow that soft flex can break down and the Attraxion can lose grip. A good ski, for skiers looking to carve in tighter arcs on easy groomed runs.

Easy turning soft ski for progressing carving skiers

Soft flex and tight sidecut means it works well for short turns on easy terrain
