They say

We say

The Sentinel uses sandwich sidewalls and a full wood core to deliver full performance in mixed conditions. It looks like a fat friendly powder ski, but don’t be fooled! The Sentinel absolutely loves to go fast, feeling immensely stable and having surprisingly high levels of edge grip for a wide ski. For blasting through crud and chopped up snow the Sentinel has few rivals. On the piste it still retains that fast grippy character and works well. At slower speeds it can be harder work, feeling quite heavy with the high level of grip making it harder to adjust. However, skiers who are fast, aggressive and capable will love this ski.

Traditionally shaped ski that goes well at speed

Like a wide GS ski, very stable off piste, lots of grip on the piste
