We say

The Katana features a top end construction with its full wood core and two sheets of titanium. Last year it was a massive hit, this winter it continues with same design but has a new top sheet. This is a ski that feels very confident at speed, it has a strong, race like construction which really comes alive at pace. The extended low profile rocker makes the ski float really well and makes it easy enough to handle when you need it. Overall this is still a fantastic ski that has the ability to go fast and hard, yet feel easy to handle in most situations.
