They say

We say

The new Mustang takes a lot of its construction from the race department skis, it uses a full woodcore matched up with titanium reinforcement. On piste this ski is a rocket, it’s fast, has huge amounts of edge grip and is a very powerful for high performance on the piste. It’s a great tool for long fast turns on the groomers, feeling smooth, grippy and stable. It’s also quick from edge to edge for short turns. Essentially, this is a fantastic choice for skiers who love to rip on the piste. In deeper snow, its stiffness and narrow shape make it a bit more of a handful.

Tester Comments

Nicko Braxton
Forgiving, easy cruiser, but still performs at speed
Pete Davison
A good all round contender, quick edge to edge at slow speed yet still stable when you open it up at higher speeds
