We say

The Automatic is the brainchild of Pro skiers Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and Dana Fahr. It features a 117m waist and a new Rocker profile. It also uses a power boost in the form of Titanium strips inserted into the wood core. The Automatic was a dream to ski, everyone of the test team absolutely loved it! Although it’s a big ski and obviously geared up for some serious work it’s actually easy to use and very playful. Short turns are surprisingly low effort, the Automatic does a great job of tree dodging! However, once you open it up it feels rock solid underfoot, with no limits to speed. Powersliding out of turns is easy with the well judged rocker profile doing a great job. Overall, this was an amazing ski, which we just couldn’t fault for big mountain skiing.

High speed full throttle animal, uncage it and hold on!
Nicko Braxton
Playful, easy to ski, yet it still rips when required
