The Enduro range has been expanded this winter, with the 800 second in line behind the heavy-duty 850 we tested last year. It has a lighter construction, a narrower waist and uses a new binding interface. As a result, it feels like a more rounded ski, immediately feeling effortless to adjust turn-shape in all conditions. The rocker tip and smooth flex floats up well in powder, while on piste it grips hard and feels surprisingly solid at speed. It was hard to find a weakness in this brilliant all-mountain ski.

Easy and perfect shape and flex - brilliant for all terrain

A massive improvement on last year’s ski. Fun at speed on piste. Great skis!
