They say

We say

The latest Temptation uses a new ‘Auto Turn’ rocker shape with a more traditional camber underfoot while giving 30% rocker in the tip and tail. This was a ski that felt forgiving and generally user friendly, the new rocker shape making adjustments to the turn effortless. At slower speeds on the groomed runs, it felt easy to use and would be ideal for more entry-level carving skiers. In deeper, backcountry conditions the width and rocker make it easy to handle. At high speeds it started to feel less stable.

Tester Comments

Amanda Pirie
Suited to the lower-intermediate skier at slower speeds who’s looking for a bit of adventure off piste
Rowena Phillips
Its sidewall construction combined with capped tip and tail give a progressive flex which works better off piste
